Sourdough Creek is a wonderfully written historical fiction adventure. It is an action packed adventure that is set during the Gold Fever.
Caroline, writes very real characters that will hook you from the very first page.
Sam is a flawed hero. He is a gentleman cowboy who starts proving his character right from the Start when he saves Cassie from a beating that she is receiving from a neighbour because of her Uncle Avrid's thieving.
Cassie is a brave, hard working and stubborn woman who I wanted to throttle for most of the book. We have all known women like Cassie. She wants love so badly that she excuses bad behaviour from her uncle in the name of family.
Although she has seen first-hand, first with her father and then with her Uncle Avrid that not all men treat women with kindness and respect, she doesn't seem to give Sam credit for the kindness and respect that he showered on her, her sister and their pet cat from their first meeting. I enjoyed watching the blinders finally fall off after God sent her a very powerful sign.
Ashes is the brave cat that does seem to have nine lives
Uncle Arvid is a real piece of work. He is a thieving, abusive layabout that wouldn't lift a finger or spend a penny to help his nieces but expected them to slave for his benefit.
I am looking forward to a sequel even if it is years away because these characters had me from the first page.
Luke is an amazing narrator. He really brought the characters to life!
Good, clean historic romance novels are my favorite and hate when they get ruined by to much smut & gore.
This book, Sourdough Creek, was adorable. Had humor, history, morals and playful clean romance. The narrator, Luke, was great & really added to the western flavor.
I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
Luke did a REALLY GREAT JOB NARRATING this book! Caroline Fyffe I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!! YOU ARE NOW 1 of my new favorite authors!! I've been ALL OVER the west side of the country & know all these states & she must've really did her homework on them! also the words they use would DEFINITELY MATCH THE TIME ERA FOR THE BOOK! I BELIEVE I'll checkout the book for Wyoming series next!¡!!!
This book was a gifted code book .I thoroughly enjoyed this one !The plot was different from most books .The narration was very good .I could easily pick out the characters .I would reccommend this one to my Western reading friends.
The difference in the characters was very apparent.
Yes I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. Nice read, good plot.
It has some mystery, love, romance, and a historical background.
Luke Andreen did a great job. Read at a nice pace and did the voices well.
Sam of course. He is a gentleman.
*** I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
First, I will say, I really enjoyed Luke Andreen's narration of this story. His voice was perfect for this historical western romance. Each character was easily recognizable and the pace was perfect.
I am a western romance listener, something about Cowboys for me. Caroline Fyffe delivers a beautifully set romance between Cassie and Sam. You can't help but love Sam, and quietly rooting for him throughout the entire story. He is strong, handsome, smart and oh so patient. Cassie was a little immature for my liking, but she grows on you as the story goes on. Love little Josephine and her cat, Ashes, who seems to be the guardian angel of Sam and Cassie. The scenery is expressed, so you can see it as you are listening. This book was extremely enjoyable and I look forward to other Caroline Fyffe books.
Sourdough Creek is a heart-warming, feel-good, romance that portrays strong love, betrayal and trust. It is not raunchy. Cassie and Luke’s story had a lot of twist and turns most of which happened at their claim on Sourdough Creek. The author pays attention to details and I loved how she described scenery and drudgery of the back breaking toil of mining gold. Lately, I have listened to a lot of books that are predictable but not so with Carolyn Fyffe. I have just learned to listen and enjoy her books.
First and foremost, you are going to love the character of Sam Ridgeway. He is just an honest man that you couldn’t help but root for. I don’t want to give away the story but he won some personal possession stolen by Cassie’s wicked Uncle. He offers assistance to Cassie and her sister on their way to what he concludes must be his gold claim. Along the way they have many adventures, some of which pulls them apart and others that shows Cassie what a good man Sam is. I must mention the cat Ashes who saved the day several times. What would a good western be without outlaws and horses. This story had it all. The overall performance was also very good. I loved the different voices.

I have read all of Caroline's books and her audibles. I love her storyline in this book, the reading and easy listening of the story teller. I enjoyed Cassie pretending to be a guy and taking care of her sister. She had big plans to for the gold mine claim her Uncle left behind, Sam shows up offering to help (with his own plans and motives). This is a book of action and delight. A must for audible book for it makes the story even more alive. You won't regret it. Caroline is a great author and I've enjoyed ALL of her books.
It has been a long time since I read Sourdough Creek, and I really didn't remember it very well. Hearing the words spoken brought the characters into life and made the story more inviting to me. This is the story of two orphaned girls who find themselves owners of a gold mine in California, but first they have to get there. There are bullies in their town they have to escape; outlaws they have to avoid and a persistent Sam Ridgeway. Sam was robbed of the deed to the mine by the girls uncle and he is determined to regain it. This was a great book and I know you will enjoy it.
