Book Review: Trouble in Store

Carol Cox Novel
Trouble in Store
By Carol Cox

Fired from her most recent governess position, Melanie Ross must embrace her last resort: the Arizona mercantile she inherited from her cousin. But Caleb Nelson is positive he inherited the mercantile and he's not about to let an obstinate woman with newfangled ideas ruin all he's worked for. In the hope of turning her interest elsewhere, he's determined to get Melanie married off, and luckily, there are many single men in the town quite willing to take her off his hands.

The problem though, that Caleb soon realizes, is that he doesn't want her to marry any of them. He's drawn to her more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store offer unexpectedly positive results. But someone doesn't want the mercantile to succeed. Threatening words have escalated into something more than that. Now its danger and destruction. Will Melanie and Caleb's business and budding romance survive the trouble that's about to come their way?

I have to say that I really like this book. Westerns haven't always been my favorite, but its hard to turn down a great love store. Carol Cox has a way of making the main characters, Caleb and Melanie come alive, seeming almost real. Its hard not to think about what they'll do next. I love that there is an independent woman, instead of just a stereotypical one who places getting married above all other goals. If you read this you won't want to put it down until you're done. And if you're like me you'll be looking for the next one.
