REVIEW: Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer

REVIEW: Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer

{About the Book}

Adelaide Proctor is a young woman with her head in the clouds, longing for a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a staid governess position on a central Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her romantic yearnings behind. 
When Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America's wool industry, he never expected to become a father overnight. And five-year-old Isabella hasn't uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon--and intrigues him at the same time. But he can't afford distractions. He has a ranch to run, a shearing to oversee, and a suspicious fence-cutting to investigate. 
When Isabella's uncle comes to claim the child--and her inheritance--Gideon and Adelaide must work together to protect Isabella from the man's evil schemes. And soon neither can deny their growing attraction. But after so many heartbreaks, will Adelaide be willing to get her head out of the clouds and put her heart on the line?

{My Review}

After finishing "Head in the Clouds" I only have one more Karen Witemeyer book to read and then I will have read all her books. I found this ebook on my Kindle Fire last night and I had no clue I owned it, so I decided to read it last night. I started on the first page and didn't stop until I reached the last page at around two o'clock in the morning.

"Head in the Clouds" tells Gideon and Adelaide's love story. The story begins as Adelaide is hoping this guy Henry is going to propose to her but he in fact has to tell her he has a promotion and will no longer be riding the rails back to her town and therefore will not see her again. But a month later Adelaide decides to go to the town Henry is in to find him and she does. But she finds out something that Henry neglected to tell her. She then discovers a job ad in the newspaper looking for a governess. She answers the ad and gets the opportunity for an interview. She's chosen for the job and then ensues the adventure. She a governess for a mute child, she's falling in love with Gideon, the child's father, and she goes through a horrific ordeal.

I absolutely loved this story!It was cute, witty, and romantic. And anybody who knows me knows my thing for cowboys, but this time we have a *gasp* BRITISH COWBOY!!! Ya'll this was amazing! I love cowboys, but then add in a British accent it gets even better. Buy this book!
