Historical romantic novella
The good ladies of Timber are ready to find a wife for their new single minister. Charles has ideas of his own when he meets Fiona, the lovely accident-prone and outspoken part-time librarian. Fiona, on the other hand is holding out for a knight on a white charger to carry her away from her humdrum small town life. Fiona and Charles are thrown together as they begin to solve an old mystery which has turned up in a library book. Will Fiona's white knight ever show up to sweep her away? Will Charles ever run out of invitations for cream cakes and lemon slice? Fiona might just discover the sound of hoof-beats when she least expects it.
Post World War II in Canada...everyone has been affected somehow, whether family member or friend, and the new young single pastor in Timber has his own experience as an army chaplain. Fiona thinks of herself as a klutz and futureless. Young, naive, unsure, she’s not sure what to think when the pastor comes calling. Using a little mystery in a library book as the beginning of their courtship, McGregor paints a charming story of regaining a life of purpose, and finding a sure path to the future in this novella.
I enjoy this author’s stories and recommend them for readers who like clean and sweet bite-size romances for a vicarious adventure in historical Canada.
Sharon McGregor is a west coast transplant from the Canadian prairies. Her imagination and story weaving got its start when she was an only child living on a farm. She's moved on from cowgirl dreams to romance and mystery, but hasn't lost her love for horses.
When not writing or reading, she's busy with the two shops she shares with her daughter- an ice cream and candy store and a bath boutique.
