I was given an advanced copy of “Hearts of Starlight” by Audrey Adair to read and give an honest review.
I found this book very easy to read and I enjoyed the story. It was believable which is very important to me when reading. The characters were likable except the bad guys who you were not excepted to like. I would recommend this book.

*****What I Thought About This Book*****
Callie is the perfect woman. The problem is she is a little too perfect. This girl grew up in the city. However, she knew exactly what she would need on the wagon train, including the wagon and oxen. She can shoot a rifle better than a man, she is not afraid of wild animals such as bears and she is a strong swimmer who can pull a man out of a river. On the other hand, she is gifted baker and can help birth babies. She is so good she can even run the wagon train. She only thing she did wrong was tell one small lie.
The over all idea of the book was good but about half way through the book Callie started to get on my nerves. I found myself thinking there had to be one person on that wagon train that hated her. Oh no, everyone loved Callie.
I will not tell you the ending but even that was unbelievable.
There is one good thing about this book, it is FREE.
