Not her best work  Sep 30, 2006
I listened to the unabridged audio edition of Amethyst, and while I found this story started off very well (albeit a bit predictably), I was disappointed to find this novel lost steam about halfway through. Mostly because the author insists on multiple POV switches within the tale which was disconcerting... And secondly because I did not care for either of the romances. Amethyst's relationship with captain McHenry was not very fleshed out. Even though she is a title character, the novel is quickly subsumed by the regular cast leaving her albeit weak story by the wayside. Opal's relationship with the preacher was likewise unsatisfying (to me), because of the age difference between these two characters. I just did not like Jacob because he found a girl so young attractive. I know its historically accurate, but to be frank it skeeved me out. I would prefer if he found a woman his own age. That this character was the town preacher made it worse.

Overall, while this novel was enjoyable, it just lacked oomph to keep me interested. Also, the author usually does a better job of romances than this. 3 stars. Only average.

Treasure  Jul 25, 2006
Amethyst by Lauraine Snelling will most definately take a place on my shelf, displayed along with the best. I don't think it was the best in the series, but it was certainly entertaining and a great read.
I liked how Amethyst's story was a little different than the others. For one, she didn't come from a good background at all. Ruby and Opal grew up in a well-to-do house, even though techinically they were not family. Pearl grew up in a wealthy family. Amethyst didn't have either. She was neither wealthy nor loved. And i found that a refreshing change.
There were other aspects of the book, however, that i found rushed. Little Squirrel's death was over in about five lines. No struggle, no nothing. Just dead. There were other things too, that ended too quickly.
I definately recommend that a reader begin with the first book in the series. All four book rely heavily on each other and it won't make sense if you start on book three.
I love romance and i found Amethyst and Jeremiah's relationship, along with that of Opal and Jacob's relationship beautiful. Opal's struggle with her faith, too, was written beautifully. Also, Snelling's description of scenery and the daily comings and goings were on target and at times i felt as though i were sitting in the room or on the range with the characters.
All in all this was a wonderful book and is highly recommended.
Great Book  Mar 15, 2006
Enjoyed the sequil for this series. I have reread all four of her books in the series "Dakotah Treasures" and have enjoyed them each time.
Fourth in the series Dakota Treasures  Jan 8, 2006
I truly believe the first 3 books were much superior to this one, but there were some good things here, too. Amythyst leaves her less than honorable father to go searching for a lost nephew only to have a huge surprise. In the meantime, she decides to stay in the Dakota territory with folks she comes to love. She goes to work, rides out the horrible winter, makes friends and falls in love. However, is the love going to be returned? An unlikely meeting with rich Mrs. Grant had changed the course of her life. Eventually the two women start an enterprise and the book sort of ends with the final love stories' climax.
A Pleasing Tale!  Jan 6, 2006
"Amethyst" which is the fourth and final book in the Dakotah Treasures series was a nice read but I think relied a little heavily on the previous titles. Readers may want to pick these up first before starting this one. I think it will give the reader continuity and a little bit more understanding. Especially when it comes to the secondary storyline.

Amethyst O'Shaunasy travels west in order to find her father's heir. What she finds instead is a secret that she's not sure she should share with her da. On top of this she has been ill and when a very giving family takes her in she meets Major Jeremiah McHenry recently retired from the Army. This man is trying to make a new life for himself and Amethyst can't help but be drawn to his kind nature. He's a gentleman in every way and this speaks to her, as she has not known the love and respect of a man. But, will she be willing to follow her heart and marry Jeremiah, or will she allow her duty to her father to cause her to walk away from the only chance at happiness she thinks she'll ever find?

This was a nice read and with additional secondary storyline between Opal and Jacob finally playing out to it's conclusion. Sadly the secondary storyline seems to have been started in a previous title so this was not a fully satisfying addition for this reader. Ms. Snelling has descriptively brought to life the Dakota Territory and I imagine this was a very engaging series overall if all titles had been read before picking up the conclusion first.
