It was interesting to discover the world of shop owners, bar keeps, and ranchers as opposed to your usual gunslingers and sheriffs. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet love story placed in an authentic Western setting.

Synopsis

Fired from her most recent governess position, Melanie Ross must embrace her last resort: the Arizona mercantile she inherited from her cousin. But Caleb Nelson is positive he inherited the mercantile, and he's not about to let an obstinate woman with newfangled ideas ruin all he's worked for. In hope of turning her interest elsewhere, he determines to get Melanie married off, and luckily, there are many single men in town quite willing to take her off his hands.

The problem is, Caleb soon realizes he doesn't want her to marry any of them. He's drawn to her more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store offer unexpectedly positive results.

But someone doesn't want the mercantile to succeed, and threatening words have escalated into destruction and danger. Will Melanie and Caleb's business--and budding romance--survive the trouble that's about to come their way?

"Cox deftly balances historical and humorous details with heartfelt spirituality in this pleasant inspirational set in 1885 Arizona Territory." --RT Book Reviews

"It's definitely going to please a lot of fans of western romance, especially those who enjoy a good mystery." -The Christian Manifesto
