Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream: Rebecca Steele Series, Book 2 is a contemporary Western romance written by Joanne Patterson. When Emily, Rebecca’s best friend, and former co-worker in the airline industry, retired, her retirement party was a major event featuring loud music, good friends, and the warm ambiance of The Hummingbird Cafe. Marty, the cafe’s owner, and his wife Dixie had been like parents to Rebecca after she was orphaned when her parents died in a car accident. Marty knew that the apartment the two women shared was in the process of being sold to a developer, and he had an idea which might benefit everyone involved. While Rebecca’s music career was already getting stronger, Emily hadn’t figured out what she wanted to do after her retirement. Marty’s idea thrilled both of them. The setup was in so many ways the dream that Rebecca had held in her heart since she was very young -- and her new life was only just beginning.
Joanne Patterson’s Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream is a well-written, inspirational, and compelling story about two friends whose lives change after leaving the airline industry. Patterson’s characters are finely honed and believable, and her plot is unpredictable and filled with twists and turns that invariably happen in real life. I especially enjoyed seeing how Marty and Becky work on her career and the efforts made by each of the persons involved in each show. And while it’s the second book in the Rebecca Steele series, it reads fine as a stand-alone. Finding the Dream is a clean romance that is also suitable for young adult readers. Rebecca Steele Finding the Dream: Rebecca Steele Series, Book 2 is most highly recommended.
