Trouble in Store - A Review
When Melanie Ross is fired from her position as a governess, she cuts her losses in the city and heads to Arizona, where she hopes to find the mercantile she inherited from her cousin. Yet, things aren't as she expected once she arrives. Caleb Nelson is positive that he inherited the mercantile from his uncle, and he's not to thrilled to find this beauty insisting she should run the store. Caleb comes up with a fool-proof plan - get Melanie married off! As more and more would be suitors walk through their doors, Caleb grows more unhappy with each one. Could it be that he has fallen for Melanie? Plus there's the danger that seems to targeted at the two of them. Will they work together?
As I got into the story, I found that I really liked Melanie's character. Her ideas for the store brought in more business, but it took her being patient with Caleb to really see the results. The bit of mystery in the story as well, kept me entertained. True, the story dragged at times, but overall, it was a very good book.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for free in exchange for a review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
