A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot

Catherine Whitfield is sure that she will never again be able to trust anyone in the medical profession after the town doctor's excessive bleeding treatments killed her mother. Despite her loneliness and her broken heart, she carries bravely on as Cimarron Creek's dutiful schoolteacher, resigned to a life without love or family, a life where dreams rarely come true.

Austin Goddard is a newcomer to Cimarron Creek. Posing as a rancher, he fled to Texas to protect his daughter from a dangerous criminal. He's managed to keep his past as a surgeon a secret. But when Catherine Whitfield captures his heart, he wonders how long he will be able to keep up the charade.

With a deft hand, Amanda Cabot teases out the strands of love, deception, and redemption in this charming tale of dreams deferred and hopes becoming reality.

I recently had the chance to read A Borrowed Dream as part of the Extreme Book Nerd Challenge (a book with a character you intensely dislike). I thoroughly enjoyed the character of Catherine however I cannot say the same for all of her suitors. This was a wonderfully sweet story that I very much enjoyed. I love Amanda Cabot and look forward to reading the rest of the Cimarron Creek Trilogy.
