Publisher's blurb: Fired from her most recent governess position, Melanie Ross must embrace her last resort: the Arizona mercantile she inherited from her cousin. But Caleb Nelson is positive he inherited the mercantile, and he's not about to let an obstinate woman with newfangled ideas ruin all he's worked for. In hope of turning her interest elsewhere, he determines to get Melanie married off, and luckily, there are many single men in town quite willing to take her off his hands.
The problem is, Caleb soon realizes he doesn't want her to marry any of them. He's drawn to her more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store offer unexpectedly positive results.
But someone doesn't want the mercantile to succeed, and threatening words have escalated into destruction and danger. Will Melanie and Caleb's business--and budding romance--survive the trouble that's about to come their way?
My review: This book wasn't my favourite. I was really annoyed how the word of the children was always taken over Melanie's and how she didn't stand up for herself. It was a little far fetched for my liking. The mystery stayed a mystery only because you are led to believe it is someone else - misdirection more than a twist in my opinion. Still an ok read for the summer. I would probably still recommend it.
