In this captivating novella by Dawn Crandall, Nicholette Everstone is already a widow at the age of twenty-two: her husband was murdered on their wedding day. She has just returned to Boston after two years of mourning in Europe. Although her husband was loving, the marriage was an arranged one, and Nicholette would like to wed again--this time for love...and to someone safe
As she acclimates to life in Back Bay again, Nicholette meets someone she can't help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices Cal Hawthorne takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of "what if" at bay?
This book is shorter than the other books in the series and was a quick fun read. Nicholette is a widow who returns home after two years abroad for her mourning period. She would like to remarry, but she is not a social butterfly and is still a little traumatised from the murder of her groom on their wedding day. She is wealthy, comes from a reputable family and can speak her mind when she has to. She becomes attracted to Cal Hawthorne, but is cautious because of her past experience.
This Christian historical romance was well-written and engaging throughout, without being preachy. Cal was swoon-worthy and the romance was satisfying. I enjoyed every bit of it, including the clandestine sneaking around from Cal's more exuberant sister.
I'm a fan of Dawn Crandall and I'm itching to read the first three books in this series, hoping to do it soon. If you like Christian historical romances, these books in the Everstone Chronicles are sure to please.
Apart from writing, Dawn is also a mom of two little ones and serves with her husband in a premarital mentorship program at their local church in Fort Wayne, Indiana. A graduate of Taylor University with a degree in Christian Education and a former bookseller at Barnes & Noble, Dawn Crandall didn't begin writing until 2010 when her husband found out about her long-buried dream. It didn't take her long to realize that writing books was what she was made to do.
