This story will capture your heart!

In this western historical, gutsy, city-bred Laura Cheney is left alone and penniless to give birth and fend off all kinds of danger by her no-good husband in the wilds of Colorado. He is killed by a band of comancheros who come looking for Laura and end up stealing her baby instead. Determined to find her baby, she hires Deke Sheridan, a tracker who was raised by Cheyenne Indians and is known for his gunning and tracking skills. Cheyenne Amber is the tail of their quest to find her baby and how they fall in love along the way. Catherine Anderson does know how to keep the reader engaged and captivated for the entire story and the narrator did an excellent job. I had to forcibly stop myself listening to this book at night so I could get some sleep. This is definitely worth a credit!

Exhausting Heroine

I typically enjoy Catherine Anderson’s books, but Laura’s responses and reactions don’t seem remotely realistic given her established history. The character’s lacking a practical sense of self-preservation was incredibly annoying.

Excellent

Held my interest throughout. Nicole Poole gives life with her narration to this really good 👍 story.

Cheyenne Amber

What did you love best about Cheyenne Amber?

I loved the entire book. I hated when it ended. Excitement from the beginning

Who was your favorite character and why?

Laura and Deke were such a sweet couple. He rough and tough and she so Boston. But in the end she learned to love his life and his ways. Knowing that he loved her Son as his own and would die for them both made my heart warm Would love to hear a sequel to this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

OK but slow.

Would you recommend Cheyenne Amber to your friends? Why or why not?

This book is slow and the antagonism went on too long. Other books by this author were much better.

Any additional comments?

I like westerns and found this book a little tedious for that genre.

not her best work

I love most of Catherine's writing, but this book was annoying and the male voice narration was horrible. painful to listen to. I seriously considered not finishing the book.

Kind of iffy about the heroine

Liked the narration with the exception of the heroine. Whitney, but that is her character so I guess it worked. Made me want to “just shake her”. Story was entertaining and educational.

Has a lot going for it!

I wasn't sure I was going to like the story but I found myself enthralled with it. There were parts where I found myself crying. Sounds depressing but it's like a good movie. The characters were very interesting and had depth. I wanted to slap Laura and tell her to snap out of it a few times. I think that's the only part of the book I wasn't happy with. She became manipulative and whiney several times to the point of madness.
All in all I enjoyed the story very much. The fact that a man could love a child so much that wasn't his, was heart warming.
Although not my favorite narrator. The narration did not take away from the book at all. This is my first Catherine Anderson. I may venture for another peek..

Cheyenne Amber

Least favorite book! Narrator wasn't very well! Most time could not tell men's voices from the woman's! Also lot of cursing I did not care for!
