Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon by Miralee Ferrell

Love Finds You In Bridal Veil, Oregon

by Miralee Ferrell

Publisher: Summerside Press

ISBN-13: 9781935416630

Book Summary:

Turn-of-the-century schoolteacher Margaret Garvey risks everything by taking in two young runaways---only to learn that they may be involved in murder and sabotage at the local sawmill. The arrival of two men who love her complicates things even further. Can Margaret clear her head and heart to make the most important decisions of her life?

My Review:

Have I mentioned lately that I love historical fiction? I'm from the Northwest and could just picture myself being in Bridal Veil, Oregon. Margaret Garvey has a tragedy early on in this story and it forces her to rely on the towns people of Bridal Veil. She isn't married, and the one man who she wanted to marry left town when she was 16. She doesn't know what her future holds, but it doesn't take her long to find out it could be a hard road.

Life isn't dull for Margaret, as one would think it would be in a logging town. She takes in two runaways and her job comes into jeopardy. On top of that, the guy she loved at 16 returns to town and see if they can pick up where they left off. At the same time, the town nice guy has started showing his interest in her, but is his interest for the wrong reasons?

Can you tell there's some tension in this story? At first, I have to admit, I thought, "Oh, this is going to be so predictable. What am I going to do?" LOL I was so very wrong. There are twists and turns in the story that no one will expect (except for you since you're reading my review).

Love Finds You In Bridal Veil, Oregon has been a great addition to the Love Finds You series by Summerside.

I'd like to thank Miralee for my autographed copy to review. I'd give it away so that someone else could enjoy it as much as me, but she wrote my name in it. *grin*

I just finished reading "Love finds you in Bridal Veil, OR" and loved it. Of course I live in OR!
I just discovered the "Love Finds You In" series and have enjoyed all of the books so far. They are both historic and modern romanced written by different authors.

Hi Mimi,

Thank you for the lovely review and I'm so glad you ended up feeling it wasn't predictable! I hope you discovered the two pages of author notes at the end of the book, as well. It contains facts about the real town, area, and characters.
