Ms. Taylor is the main female character in a story that takes her from losing her job right after her beloved grandmother’s death to the small town of Gordon Falls. Charlotte Taylor uses her inheritance to purchase a fixer up cottage. When Charlotte starts to brew herself a cup of special tea, she suddenly has to call the fire department due to a fire started on the stove. The fire introduces her to fireman Jesse Sykes who is a volunteer that has a paying job being a contractor for a local company.
The unique ability Jesse exhibits besides being a handyman is being a wonderful cook and singer. While Jesse at first exhibits a very distant desire for being at church, the author’s twist of the plot in bringing Jesse to a place of openness to God was incredible. I enjoyed how Charlotte was impacted so much by her grandmother in the story, something that needs to be more the norm in our society than how it currently looks. I believe another characteristic of the tale I thought brought depth to the novel is that the romance wasn’t quick; the couple had to work through some of their past issues.
My rating is 4 stars.
