Series Number 2
Rainy Day Dreams is Book 2 in the “Seattle Brides” series. In this book, we follow Kathryn Bergert, whose father sends her to the newly named Seattle, in the hopes that she can find a husband among the highly populated male population, consisting mainly of lumberjacks. Kathryn is less than pleased at the arrangement of being a maid in a distant cousin’s hotel. All she wants to do is follow her dreams of being a painter. In the meantime, Jason Gates is taking a position in the office at the lumber mill. He is trying to move on after the loss of his wife. Kathryn and Jason have an immediate dislike for each other, however, different situations cause them to keep crossing paths, and before they know, they begin to care for each other, but don’t know what to do about it. In the meantime, the town is trying to prepare for a possible Indian attack.
This was a really good read. It was exciting to see the characters from book one develop, and meet the new characters that joined them. I liked seeing how Kathryn’s perception of Seattle changed throughout the story. She went from doing whatever she could to try to leave, to putting off her departure. This was a great sequel to the first book.
