AN INCONVENIENT MATCH
His family destroyed hers. But Wade Cumming's job offer -- to care for his recuperating father -- impossible to decline. Schoolteacher Abigail Wilson can swallow her pride for the sake of a summer paycheck that will help her sister. And when Abigail's employment ends, old loyalties will separate the feuding families once more.
If there's anyone in town stubborn enough to deal with Wade's cantankerous father, it's Abigail. It's just a business arrangement -- and a temporary one, at that. Her good opinion shouldn't matter a lick to Wade. Yet their different backgrounds belie a surprising kinship. Perhaps unexpected love will be their reward for the summer's inconvenient match.
Dean has created an emotionally tumultuous historical drama. The story is fraught with insurmountable obstacles that seem impossible for the hero and heroine to successfully scale. And that impossibility kept me turning pages, wondering just how Dean was going to get Wade and Abby together. In particular, Abigail's inward struggles raised my blood-pressure and set me to venting. It seemed like every time one issue was resolved she would set up another emotional road block until I wanted to slap her silly! LOL. But I could see where she was coming from too so I could kind of sympathize with her. I had to keep reminding myself that while I had the benefit of knowing Wade's innermost thoughts, poor Abigail did not. But I still wanted to do her a personal injury before the end of the book!
