Boardinghouse Proprietor Celia Anderson, widow, is not searching for a new husband and father to her young and ill daughter as she initiates a challenge for her would be suitors.
Mark Williams searching for the one lost to him from long ago, and new in town, is wanting a place to call his own, when he happens upon the door of Celia's boardinghouse. Although Mark is looked upon suspiciously by those he encounters in his new town, he finds he can fix broken objects to earn his way. But the question remains will his skills be enough to fix a broken heart?
Romance, sacrifice and a twist ending is sure to please the reader who is searching for an excellent quick to devour book for this holiday season. Strong character development (loved the character of Mark, warm and genuine), engaging and smooth flowing plot with no dull moments, along with winter scenery kept me reading and involved in the storyline. I found the overall message inspiring and I was entertained by this charming read. I will recommend this book to others. I received a complimentary copy from Revell Publishers for this blog tour for my review.
