A lovable main character/heroine named Cassie Haddon grabs you and won’t let go. She has to fall onto her own undeveloped resources to survive in a small town in the Old West. Her contretemps in the kitchen will have you smiling, and the pressures she is under will have you rooting for Cassie all the way.
Here’s some of the blurb: It isn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry–and Cassie must find work to support them.
Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she’s exactly what his business needs.
With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.
This work of fiction holds plenty of detail and twists that will keep you reading. Enjoy!
