Mail order bride, Eliza Cantrell, heads out to meet her groom. He owns a general store, and Eliza is chomping at the bit to help him with his work. But when she arrives, Axel is nowhere to be found and his business partner, William, dislikes the business and would rather be a doctor. When Eliza arrives in town, penniless and alone, William tries to take care of her – in honor of his absent partner. Eliza soon becomes indispensable around the store… which leads to some tension. And even though she’s promised to another, Eliza finds herself spending more and more time with William.
Overall, I thought this book lacked a strong plot line and good characters. It was a light read, that just failed to bring me in. I’ll give it 3 out of 5 stars.
