Where Trust Lies by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan-Book Review

""Beth Thatcher returns home from her first year as a schoolteacher in the mining town of Coal Valley and steps into a whole different world. Her life back among her wealthy Eastern family is a stark contrast to her primitive life in the West, and Beth isn't sure where she belongs anymore.
She barely has time to settle in before her mother announces plans for a family holiday--a luxurious steamship tour along the eastern coast of Canada and the U.S. Wishing to reconnect with her mother and sister, Beth agrees to go but quickly finds herself at odds with her mother's expectations. After enjoying complete freedom in the western wilds, Beth isn't sure what to make of her mother's ongoing efforts to direct her life--and her heart.
Beth keeps in touch with her Mountie beau, Jarrick, even as young men more of her station catch her eye. Is she ready to fully give her heart to Jarrick, knowing it will mean saying good-bye to her family and her life of privilege once again? And when Beth trusts the wrong person, will Jarrick be able to help her despite the distance between them?""

Where Trust Lies is the second book in the Return to the Canadian West series; which actually has nothing to do with the Canadian west. Instead, it's about Beth Thantcher's summer vacation back home with her family; while waiting to discover if her teaching contract in the mining town of Coal Valley will be renewed.
I feel like I can't write to much on the book; as it'd be to easy to slip spoilers; and (even though I thoroughly enjoyed the book) it was a bit predictable-so I'll make this review short and sweet. 
I always enjoy Jannette Oke books, and this too was a great read. It's everything you would expect from her; strong morals, love of God and romance.
Fun and easy to read, I would definitely recommend it-though I'd suggest reading the first book in the series first, as I didn't and was a little lost at times.

I received this book through Bethany House Publishing in exchange for an honest review. A positive review is not required or guaranteed, all opinions express are my own.
