Publisher's Summary

In this inspirational historical romance, Edith is a nurse and has gone home to assist her cousin who is “with child.” Edith has wonderful qualities but never gives a man a second chance because her expectations are so high. However, all that changes when a mysterious stranger starts writing to her. For the first time, she gets to know a man's inner soul before making any harsh judgments.
Whoever he is, this man is a mystery and the best thing that has ever happened to her. The question that puzzles her is whether or not he's as wonderful in person as he is in his letters.

A Sweet Story

This is book two in the Bear Lake Family Saga and introduces us to Edith, a talented nurse who returns home to Paris Idaho to nurse her cousin Melinda. Edith judges men based on first appearances, which leads her to dismiss most of the men she's introduced to. She faces one matchmaking attempt after another when she returns home, but her new suitors don't interest her. When she receives a letter from a mysterious man, she decides to get to know the writer before judging him.

This book can be read as a standalone, but is best enjoyed after reading the first. It catches up with Melinda, Gilbert, and Jenny from the first book, and little Jenny is all grown up and ready to meet men of her own! I really enjoyed the banter between the characters, and how the author used music to bring the characters together. She wrote in a simple and straightforward manner, and placed an emphasis on family values.

The narrator did a great job with the different characters and even singing parts, which brought something special to the story. She has a voice that's easy to listen to. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Lovely Story!

Any additional comments?

This is the 2nd book in the Bear Lake Family Saga but it stands alone. The book is a historical romance and contains no graphic language or violence. I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Edith is a young nurse who has a list of traits which the perfect husband must possess. All men she meets who are missing any of the items on the list are immediately dismissed without consideration, which so far has been every single eligible man she meets. She begins to receive letters from a secret admirer who wants to correspond with her so they could know each other's mind without outer prejudice. Who are the letters from?

I really enjoyed and recommend this book. The characters were believable and human. The story was intriguing and very enjoyable. I now want to listen to all the books in the series!
