Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico by Lena Nelson Dooley

Lena Nelson Dooley is a special friend of mine that I met several months ago and have the privilege of seeing and hearing her speak often at a monthly writer's lunch. She is such a dear sweet lady and has such a gift with writing. You can find her on her blog or at DFW Ready Writers. Check out her website for more information on her and her writing at:

Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico is a wonderful book that takes place in 1890. Madeleine Mercer answers an ad for a mail order bride when her father dies suddenly and his business partner threatens he is going to marry her whether she wants to or not. Phillip Smith placed the ad for a mail order bride presumably to have someone to take care of him in his old age and illness. When Madeleine arrives there are many questions about her past. But she wins over Phillip instantly and gradually wins over his good friend, Jeremiah. The secrets of her past try to overshadow her new life in Golden. Can the friends she has made there protect her from the evil that is chasing her? Read and find out!
