In this historical romance Abigail Stanton is a widow who has lost a child and a husband and is still grieving. She accepts a job as housekeeper for Conor MacKay, a gruff man who has not only been through a string of housekeepers but has also lost a wife who ran off and a son who stole from him and then disappeared. He also has a child from an Indian woman and has slept with several women in his past.
While Abby wrestles with her losses and her Christian faith, she makes it known to Conor she is not open to any of his advances. Slowly the love between them grows and she helps Conor’s tough and ostracized daughter see herself as something to be cherished.
The author builds good romantic tension between the two romantic leads and with the daughter’s resistance to Abby. I felt that Abigail can come across as a little bit too prudish at times. It is a good story of redemption and reconnecting with Christian faith after life has caused deep hurts. I give it four out of five stars.

Letter Perfect (California Historical Series #1)
Accident prone Ruth Caldwell has been to many different finishing schools but never seems to make it through because she just can’t conform to the expectations of refinement for women of her day.
When her mother dies she goes west to find her father. When she arrives she learns he has died and she’s half owner of the ranch he held.
The love interest in this historical romance is Josh McCain, the son of her father's business partner. As the story unfolds we learn that there’s more afoot due to Josh’s unscrupulous father who has designs on getting his hands on Ruth’s fortune.
I liked the concept of a woman not being able to conform to the standards of the day and Ruth’s low self-esteem thinking she’s worthless. It’s a good message, but overall I didn’t find the humorous situations the author tried to set up and the characters all that captivating and several times I almost gave up on the book as it wasn’t all that riveting. Even the auxiliary characters seemed to be more padding to get to a certain word count than they were of importance to the plot. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.
