The hero and heroine were three dimensional with true to life issues during the setting. My emotions were right there whether it was the grief Maggie and Thomas felt for their deceased spouse, providing for the children who missed their other parent, the award for Maggie’s entry in a baking contest, the community events that were not always pleasant to deal with or the prayers being offered to gain clarity for decisions to be made. The scenes and dialogues were vivid that kept me turning the pages and connecting with all that was happening. There was never a dull moment in the action with unanticipated twists and turns from the primary and secondary characters. It was nice to reconnect with Ian and Sophie McCormick and others from book one in this series. I appreciate the underlying message of God’s faithfulness, love, and second chances that Rouser interwove into this story. As I read the last line and closed the book, I was savoring the beauty of this heartwarming story.
I look forward to reading more books by Kathleen Rouser. I’m really hoping she’ll have another story set in Stone Creek, Michigan with these lovable community residents to see what is transpiring in their lives.
This romance isn’t easily tied up with a ribbon. Maggie, a baker and Thomas, the new pharmacist in town, both widowed with children must navigate many misunderstandings to even become friends. Romantic intentions bubble to the surface as illness and saving the town from a charlatan forces them to take a second look at each other. Secondary characters full of superstition are a good foil to Thomas’ more educated viewpoints and Maggie’s practical ministrations. Wonderful read. I finished this in a single weekend because the plot is so compelling.
