Love Finds You in Calico, California
Title: LOVE FINDS YOU IN CALICO, CALIFORNIA
Author: Elizabeth Ludwig
Publisher: Summerside Press
Genre: Inspirational/historical romance
Abigail Watts is the only child of her mining father, and even though she’s scared of Calico, she stays with her father. She has nothing back East. When a mine explosion kills six miners and her father, Abigail is stunned. She is even more stunned when the owner of the mine refuses to give her the pay due, claiming her father caused the explosion. He also gives her three weeks to vacant the house.
Nathan Hawk is the local livery owner and he was with Abigail’s father when he died. But he is sympathetic when he learns of the blame placed on her father.
Abigail decides to stay on in Calico, dangerous though it is, and work as a seamstress, while she tries to clear her dad’s good name. But who is really behind the explosion? Why are they hiding it? And will the truth really set her free?
LOVE FINDS YOU IN CALICO, CALIFORNIA is another historical romance set in a real life historical town of Calico. Now a ghost town, Calico has been restored as a tourist attraction by the owner of Knot’s Berry Farms. I love these bits of information included in these books.
The story, true to most books in the historical genre, starts out with death—and a lot of it—but Abigail is a sweet, compassionate heroine even as her world collapses around her feet. Nathan also is a wonderful hero, kind and considerate, and typically male as he tries to fix problems that arise.
If you enjoy historical romances, then you will want to read LOVE FINDS YOU IN CALICO, CALIFORNIA. A fascinating note from the author is also included. $12.99. 350 pages.
