Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon by Miralee Ferrell

Amidst a backdrop of thievery and murder in historic Bridal Veil, Oregon, a schoolteacher is torn between the memories of a distant love and the man who could be her future. Margaret Garvey had given her heart to Nathaniel, but he left town six years before.

Now she's giving love another chance, but her decision to build a new life with Andrew is shaken when Nathaniel steams back into Bridal Veil on a riverboat to work at the nearby sawmill.

When disaster strikes the town and threatens the welfare of its citizens, Margaret will be faced with the most important choice of her life.

My Review:
Thank you to Summerside Press for my copy of this Christian Fiction Romance novel. The premise of the Love Finds You series interests me--novels set in American towns with intriguing names that incorporates travel and romance. All fifty states will eventually be represented. It's a way to learn more about our diverse country.

This story line is set in an Oregon, 1902 lumber mill town, and teaches a bit about that industry. It contains romance mixed with a bit of a mystery, including a murder. I found it contrived. The ending skips and demands a stretch more than I am willing to give. This was not one of my favorites; perhaps you'll enjoy it more than I did.
