Steadfast Heart by Tracie Peterson review
"Lenore Fulcher isn't pretentious despite her
spoiled upbringing. Her deepest desire at the age of twenty is to find
true love. However, her father believes she's wasted enough time
searching for a suitable husband, and he wants to marry her off to one
of his business partners--thirty-seven-year-old James Rybus. But the
idea of marriage to a man so much older is out of the question for
Kolbein Booth, a lawyer from Chicago,
arrives in Seattle looking for his headstrong sister who he believes may
have answered an advertisement for mail-order brides. Sick with worry,
he storms the Madison Bridal School, demanding to see his sister, only
to learn she isn't there. But Lenore Fulcher is, and something about her
captures his attention.
Is this the man Lenore has been searching for? She may not have long to find out..."
I have always enjoyed this author and this book didn't disappoint me. Having been to Seattle several years ago and seeing the underground streets near the water, I could envision this location. The characters were well developed and there was enough intrigue to keep me guessing as to what was going to happen next. Lenore's best friend Abrianna is compassionate with just enough stubborness thrown in to make her adventures interesting, as well as dangerous.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series, to find out what happens to Abrianna.
