Title: Salt Lake Dreams
Author: Paige Winship Dooly
Publisher: Barbour Pubslihing, Inc.
Salt Lake Dreams will have you dreaming about what will happen next. Three women struggle on what man to put their trust in and whether they will put their trust in God.

Dr. Abigail Haynes is headed west to Utah. Abby survives almost being held hostage in a train robbery by the prayers of her new friend. When she takes a turn at praying to God for his intervention things do not happen in the way she "prayed" for. Will Abby ever be able to trust a man again? As she helps heal others will she allow God to heal her? Will Jake be able to make Abby trust him and God as well?

Ellie weathers can not understand why her grandfather spent his entire life savings for a carousel! She could make the resort bring more income with all of that "wasted" money. Carousel builder, Bascum Anthony tries to put his grief aside and help heal Ellie's bitter heart while building an amazing carousel. When Bascum's past resurfaces to hurt Ellie and her daughter Prissy, can he protect them? Can Ellie ever trust a man with a haunting past?

Tabitha Augustine and her father are determined to find the first dinosaur fossil in the site. All of a sudden her father and many others drop out of the competition because of threats. Can she put her independent spirit aside and become a team with Hunter against the malefactor?Somehow, Hunter has not been threatened. Could he actually be the culprit? Hunter wants Tabitha to trust him but most importantly God.

This three-in-one collection was very well written. This was my first time reading a book by Paige and it was very good. I could not wait to find out what happened next. The author used very descriptive words you could easily picture the characters. The hardest part was finding out their true character and emotions. I would recommend this book to all readers who love action, suspense and some clean romance.

The only drawback, if I had to name one,was that the three stories had nothing to do with each other. However they were very good stand alone books. These are good reads for teens and adults alike.

I found this book at my local library but you can purchase it at: CBD and Amazon.
