A BRIDE FOR NOAH
Copeland and Smith pen an engaging tale about the founding of Seattle, rich in detail, warmth and humor. Readers are magically transported back in time and are a part of the characters’ lives. Mixing historical and fictional characters adds depth to the story. This is a great beginning to the new Seattle Brides series.
After a broken engagement, Evie Lawrence is ready for a change. When her employer, Miles, decides to move west to rebuild his fortune, Evie asks to go with him. On their journey to the Pacific Northwest, they are accompanied by three women who will help Evie in the restaurant she wants to build there. Noah, Miles’ nephew and foreman at the lumber mill, is not excited to see them when they arrive. The last thing he needs is the distraction of his uncle and the women, but he can’t get Evie out of his mind. (HARVEST HOUSE, Oct., 304 pp., $13.99)
