Diving Into...Head In The Clouds!

Here we go again with this weeks In A Book!

What Book? This was quite easy for me to choose - it's one of my all time favorites! Head In The Clouds by Karen Witemeyer! :)

When a recovering romantic goes to work for a handsome 
ranch owner, her heart’s not the only thing in danger.

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 

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?

Why That Book? If any of y'all know me or have read many of my reviews, you'll know that I am not a huge of sappy romance stories with no lessons or adventure or anything in them 'sides romance. This book had it all - lessons, adventure, a tad bit of suspense, and a sweet love story. It easily became a favorite book of mine and I loved reading it! I chose this book because 1) I loved the story - it was so good - and all the lessons learned in it, and 2) because of the setting - 1800s sheep farm. I'd love to live back in that time - SO cool!

Which Character Would I Be? Oh that's easy - Adelaide! She reminded me of myself in SO many ways! 'Sides - she got the awesome hero, Gideon! ;) I really loved her character and the things she learned throughout the book - she was continually making me think "Hey that's me!". 
She was also cute Isabella's governess - I would love to take care of such a sweet, darling girl! :)

Well there you have it! :) Check back tomorrow for our author interview and giveaway! :)
