Strong and Stubborn by Kelly Eileen Hake


Husbands for Hire book 3
This book had a bunch of surprises to me in it. I laughed and cried with the women of
Hope Falls. This book takes place right after book 2
Naomi Higgins is the one who has not chosen a husband yet. Naomi is hiding secrets from everyone. Years ago she had a guy courting her and her younger sister stole him away from her. Naomi is shy and would rather read a book than socialize.
Carpenter Michael Strode had married for money to give a pregnant lady a name and father for her son. His wife died and his mother-in-law wants her grandson. Michael won't hand him over and leaves town with his 10 year old son Luke. Michael leaves his son in Texas with his sister has he goes to find a new home for them.
Michael gets off the train in Hope Falls and finds a diaster the mine has colasped again trapping in Lacey Lyman and fiance Chase Dimstam in it. They were looking for evidence of the first colaspe of the mine was sabatage.
Michael joins right in the middle of the fray and helps with the rescue attempt.
Naomi after that diaster finds that someone had sent a payment ahead of time and ordered a fancy doll house to be made. So Naomi and Michael work together to make the doll house in a workshop. They are both drawn to each other. Michael knows that Naomi will be making a big mistake if she marries for money.
I have never wanted a dollhouse to play as adult but now I can see how it could be addicting to own one.
Thier is drama,emotions are touched and laughter out loud as I enjoyed this book. I hope this is not the last of Hope Falls we will see.
This is a very clean read. Does mention prayer as part of daily life.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
