Title: FLORA’S WISH
Author: Kathleen Y’Barbo
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
From bestselling author Kathleen Y'Barbo comes a brand-new series of romance, adventure, and hidden identity.
May 1887--Flora Brimm is determined the fifth time is the charm. Back home she has a reputation as "Fatal Flora," a woman whose previous four fiancés died in untimely accidents. Flora is desperate to marry, because producing an heir is the only way she can keep her family's estate. She's confident this visit to Eureka Springs with her grandmother will help her land a husband.
Pinkerton detective Lucas McMinn is hot on the trail of Will Tucker, the thief who broke his sister's heart. When he discovers the slippery fellow with Flora, he thinks they are in on the devious plot together. Will Flora be able to convince Lucas of her innocence? Will Lucas catch the elusive Mr. Tucker?
And, more importantly, will Lucas survive if he pursues Flora's heart?
An engaging story of how God can move circumstances to bring love, joy, and lasting fulfillment to the most hopeless heart.
FLORA’S WISH is the first book in Ms. Y’Barbo’s newest series, The Secret Lives of Will Tucker. Flora is an engaging—if strong-willed—heroine, but Luke McKinn is every bit as strong-willed as she which makes an engaging read. I loved how Flora and her grandmamma continuously confused Luke and kept him guessing. I also loved how Luke strove to keep the upper hand in an impossible situation.
I can’t wait to read more books in this series. I hope I have Millie’s Treasure in my to-read-pile, because I can’t wait. Great start to what promises to be a super series. I loved it. 5 stars. $13.99. 368 pages.
