Head in the Clouds is the first book of Karen's I've read, but it won't be the last. What happens when a recovering romantic goes to work for a handsome ranch owner and her heart's not the only thing in danger? A fun historical romp that has enough overtones of suspense to keep me reading. And the characters are wonderful!
Adelaide is a heroine with a wonderful sense of humor who is passionate about life. She doesn't do anything halfway. I found myself pulling for her from the opening chapter. Who can't relate to her deep desire for romance, and her faith that leads her to do some things others might call crazy but that lead her to take a job as governess.
Gideon is a hero I enjoyed. Who hasn't dreamed of a British hero who sweeps you off your feet? He was a bit enigmatic but that only added to the fun. Add in his ward Isabella, and you have a wonderful mix of characters that were easy to love and pull for.
This book had a great mix of humor, romance and suspense. Loved it!
