RAINY DAY DREAMS
In their second Seattle Brides book, Copeland and Smith are back with a sweet story of opening oneself up and learning to love again, set against the backdrop of Washington State in the 1850s. The history and setting are rich in detail, and the authors have incorporated real historical figures into the story. The hero and heroine are great characters to root for and fans will enjoy witnessing them slowly fall in love.
Kathryn Burgert has just arrived in a backwoods settlement in Seattle and believes that her father has made arrangements for her to be the manager of the Faulkner House — not the maid. Jason Gates is staying at the Faulkner House and, as lovely as Kathryn is, he’s not interested — or at least that’s what he wants her to believe. After losing his wife, Jason never plans to fall in love again, but he soon discovers God’s plan isn’t always his plan. A possible attack from hostile natives looms on the horizon. Will Jason allow himself to fall in love or will it prove to be too late? (HARVEST HOUSE, Apr., 288 pp., $13.99)
