Christian Historical Romantic Suspense

A fake relationship might keep her safe, but will it break their hearts? 

Wisconsin, 1931—Mindy Zahn can’t understand why her parents deserted the family farm, leaving her mute younger sister in her care. Until her mother’s cryptic warning to keep her sister safe becomes a life-threatening task. 

Searching for that elusive something to ease his weary heart, Dr. Nick Matrone is drawn to the cheery Mindy. He would never presume to bring such a sweet woman into his beleaguered past, so friendship is all he can offer. Except, he doesn’t expect needing to save her life. 

As the danger grows, they both must battle through physical and emotional wounds to have a hope of their counterfeit relationship becoming true. 

Welcome to Crow’s Nest, where danger and romance meet at the water’s edge.

Welcome back to Crow’s Nest, Wisconsin and the story of Dr. Nic Matrone and waitress Mindy Zahn. Nic is protective of Mindy and when danger threatens, they agree to a fake relationship. But their hearts have a different idea and the fake becomes real.
The research behind the story shines through. I was intrigued by the problems Mindy had in reading and why her sister Mable would not talk. The author shows these from a 1931 perspective. There are mysterious happenings in this small town and we see familiar characters from previous books band together to ferret out evil. 

Getting to know Nic and Mindy was a pleasure. They both feel unworthy and inadequate but as their faith grows, they realize their worth is in God, not men, which makes them all the more noble and humble. We see more of Buck Wilson, the Conglomerate head, who is still a puzzle. I am glad we get his story in the next and final book of this interesting series.

I recommend this whole series for historical fiction buffs.
*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bookfunnel on behalf of the author. I was not required to post a favorable review. All opinions are mine alone.* 5 stars and a solid faith thread.
