The book I’d like to highlight is by one of our funniest authors. When I first met Laurean Brooks she was quiet and never said much in our meetings, but she was a sponge for learning. Through the years she has opened up and is so much fun to be around. When she asked me if I’d like to publish her book, I said yes. Her wit in this books shows through each page. If you want to relax and read a fun book, this is it.
When Carrie Franklin struggles with a drunk, leaving him unconscious, or perhaps dead, she flees. Forgetting the promise to her deceased mother she deserts her feckless brother and takes the train to Abilene, Texas.
Carrie shares a seat with Molly, who confides she’s a Mail Order Bride enroute to meet her fiancé. Molly’s friend was set to join her in this adventure. But suspicion made Katy Davis back out of her betrothal. Because Carrie will disembark in Abilene, Molly asks her to explain Katy’s absence to the waiting ranch owner, Josh Kramer.
Due to miscommunication, interruptions, and an empty purse, Carrie, seated beside Josh, heads to the ranch under his assumption she is Katy Davis.
When Josh’s aunt pulls Carrie aside to reveal a secret Carrie finds herself in a quagmire. Aunt Em will also suffer if Carrie reveals her true identity.
Josh is leery of Katy Davis, never suspecting his aunt’s deception. Is Katy out to get the ranch? His attraction toward her grows, but he was once burned by a woman and swore, “Never again.”
Her secret threatens to destroy any love Josh has for her. Did she kill the drunk? Is the law looking for her?
Will God’s forgiveness help Carrie and Josh find true love and happiness?
