Book Review: Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico

by Lena Nelson Dooley

Partial synopsis from the author's website:  It’s 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he places an ad for a mail-order bride—despite the protests of his friend Jeremiah. Hoping to escape a perilous situation back East, young Madeline Mercer answers the ad and arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion.

My thoughts:  This book was a gift for my birthday from a very sweet family member who will quiz me about it.  What can I say?  Paperback romance is seldom for me.  But...  I read the book and was pleasantly surprised  by how much I enjoyed it!  There are lots of twists and surprises to the plot and sweet little Pearl just stole my heart.  If you enjoy romance novels, or even if you don't ;-) this is a great story!  

What have you been reading?

  1. I just finished reading Fierce Love by Shauna Shanks. Not a romance novel, but a book about rescuing a marriage from the inside! Very challenging.

  2. Ahhh romance books the guilty pleasure of many. I used to read tons of them while sitting at a pool or beach. A great escape. Thanks for sharing this at Dishing It & Digging It Link party. Have a great week!
