Elizabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, to establish her medical practice thanks to the wooing of her two older sisters who extolled the beauty of the land. She's certain she'll have a line of patients eager for her expertise and gentle bedside manner. However, she soon discovers the town and its older doctor may not welcome a new physician. Even more frustrating, the handsome young attorney next door may not be ready for the idea of a woman doctor. For his part, Jason Nordling has nothing against women, but he's promised himself that the woman he marries will be a full-time mother.

Despite their firm principles, Elizabeth and Jason find that mutual attraction--and disdain from the community--is drawing them ever closer. And when the two find themselves working to save the life and tattered reputation of a local woman, they'll have to decide how far they're willing to go to find justice--and true love.

A pleasurable read except I found Gwen a little ridiculous and Tabitha too one-dimensional. Would've liked a little complexity in them.

[...] there is much to be liked in this story about truth, justice, and establishing yourself in the world. With Autumn’s Return is a charming conclusion to Cabot’s Westward Winds series.

She's planning on instant success. She didn't plan on love.
When Elizabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne to open her medical practice, she is confident that the future is as bright as the warm Wyoming sun. Certain she'll have a line of patients eager for her services, she soon discovers the town may not welcome a new physician--especially a lady doctor. Even Jason Nordling, the handsome young attorney next door, seems to disapprove of her chosen profession.

When a web of deceit among Cheyenne's wealthiest residents threatens to catch Elizabeth and Jason in its snare, they must risk working together to save one of Elizabeth's patients--even if it means falling in love.

Elizabeth moves to Cheyenne, Wyoming fresh from medical school back East. She remembers the harsh words and scepticism she received from her classmates and others while in medical school, but things in Wyoming are supposed to be different. Here women were allowed to vote, sit on juries and there were even woman bailiffs! Unfortunately becoming accepted as a full fledged doctor by the citizens of Cheyenne is harder than she had anticipated.

Jason Nordling is the attorney whose office is next door to Elizabeth's doctor's office. He is one of her biggest sceptics in the beginning but quickly comes around. He figures that a woman's place is at homes, and when he marries he wants someone who will be devoted to the care and keeping of their children. Definitely not someone whose first priority is to their patients.

Elizabeth and Jason go from arguing to halfway in love in the blink of an eye and all of a sudden all of his concerns about her practicing medicine and the impact it will have on their lives just seems to disappear. The rest of the story is in my mind somewhat odd and disjointed . . . and very unlikely. The writing is not as polished as I would have expected, having read and enjoyed a couple of her other books. I wouldn't know it was written by the same author.
