Margaret Garvey was sixteen years old when she fell in love with Nathaniel Cooper. Nathaniel asked her to marry him, and she agreed, and the plan was that they’d run away together. But Nathaniel never received the message that Margaret would run away with him, so he left without her. Four years later, Margaret is the school teacher in Bridal Veil, and she is being courted by Andrew Browning.

Now, Nathaniel has returned to Bridal Veil, and he’s anxious to pick up the relationship where it left off. Margaret isn’t sure how she feels about either man, but neither is prepared to back off. Especially when a local logger is murdered, and hobos are spied in the area.

Andrew is spied in the area of the murdered man’s home so he finds himself a prime suspect. But then, so are two homeless children who are placed at the scene. Who really killed the logger? And how will Margaret discern which man she truly has feelings for?

LOVE FINDS YOU IN BRIDAL VIEW, OREGON is Ms. Ferrell’s second book in the Love Finds You series, and I think this one is even better than the first The setting appears to be lovely by the description, and the photos included in the book.

Margaret is a lovely heroine, kind and courteous, and is considered quite the catch in Bridal Veil. She would have been a wonderful teacher, judging by the way she interacted with children. Both Andrew and Nathaniel had their faults, but my sympathies laid with one more than the other, and I hoped she’d chose the man I wanted her too. The ending of the book while, not unexpected, was heartbreakingly sweet. I loved LOVE FINDS YOU IN BRIDAL VEIL, OREGON. I enjoyed reading about the history of the town included at the end of the book too. $12.99. 365 pages.
