Running from the mistakes of her past, Tessa Taylor heads to the uppermost reaches of Michigan, planning to serve as the new teacher to the children of miners. She quickly learns the town had requested a male teacher, but Percival Updegraff, superintendent and chief mine clerk, says she can stay through winter since it's too late to replace her. Tessa can't help but thank him and say she is in his debt.
Determined to make herself irreplaceable once spring thaw arrives, Tessa throws herself into her work, and soon two students have decided Miss Taylor is the right match for their grieving father. At the same time, charming assistant lightkeeper
Alex Bjorklund makes his interest known, surprising Tessa, who has never had men fight for her hand before. But not all is well as she feels that someone is tracking her every move, and she may not be able to escape the trap that has been laid for her.
Cafe Lily's Review:
My first exposure to this author was this book which is probably still one of my favorites.
This author weaves historical facts with excellent fiction and the result is a great story that keeps readers turning pages. I have not read the other books in this series. Normally, I am a stickler about that because I believe it helps the characters mesh, however, this book was fine as a stand alone and I didn't find myself lost at all. This story has it all- romance, mystery, suspense and humor.
I highly recommend it!
