Product Description

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 some obstinate woman with newfangled ideas mess up all he's worked for. He's determined to get Melanie married off as soon as possible, and luckily there are plenty of single men in town quite interested in taking her off his hands. The problem is, Caleb soon realizes he doesn't want her to marry up with any of them. He's drawn to Melanie more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store unexpectedly offer positive results.

Publisher's Description

Historical Suspense and Romance
in the Wild West

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 some obstinate woman with newfangled ideas mess up all he's worked for. He's determined to get Melanie married off as soon as possible, and luckily there are plenty of single men in town quite interested in taking her off his hands.
The problem is, Caleb soon realizes he doesn't want her to marry up with any of them. He's drawn to Melanie more every day, and he has to admit some of her ideas for the store unexpectedly offer positive results.

But someone doesn't want the store to succeed, and what used to be just threatening words has escalated into deliberate destruction and lurkers in the night. When a body shows up on the mercantile steps--and the man obviously didn't die from natural causes--things really get dangerous. Can Melanie and Caleb's business--and romance--survive the trouble that's about to come their way?

    I enjoyed this story and the fact that it included mystery and suspense was an added bonus. I like to look into past times and imagine what it must have been like for those living at the time. This story really helped to deliver on that point! The interaction between Caleb and Melanie kept me interested just to see who would win each round as they argued and struggled for control of the store. Both had strong opinions and felt they knew best of how to do business. When she finds a dead man on the back steps one morning things take a turn for the worse since they now have to deal with a sheriff who seems to think they could be hiding something. The journey they experience to discover the truth leads through a list of people that leaves you suspicious of everyone's motives. Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.

    Trouble in Store is my favorite written by Carol Cox so far. It was fun at times and even had some action and mystery to it, too. I would highly recommend this book! It is great!

    5 plus stars.

    This review was written for Trouble in Store: A Novel - eBook.
    Although this historical romance novel took a while to get going, it was thoroughly captivating for the second half, with a murder mystery to solve as well as a romance to develop. Melanie Ross inherits half a mercantile in the rugged frontier of Arizona, from her cousin George. Caleb Nelson inherits the other half from his Uncle Alvin. Only trouble is, they don't get on! They are fun to watch as animosity, competition, jealousy and suspicion turn to love, among a cast of sometimes strange, sometimes comical members of the Cedar Ridge Community. I would have liked to have seen a little more faith development in the main characters, but I still enjoyed reading this book, which I will recommend to others.

    I'm an avid reader and I haven't read a lot of books that I couldn't finish, but Trouble in Store, by Carol Cox, was one of those rare exceptions. This was my first book that I got from NetGalley so it was a little difficult to read as an e-book advance copy since every "ff" was missing. After I caught onto that, I would just add it in in my head as I was reading. For some reason, this book just didn't hold my attention. The book is about Melanie Ross, who is a recently fired governess. She discovers she is heir to a mercantile in Arizona, but runs into problems when Caleb Nelson is certain that he inherited the mercantile. Caleb tries to get Melanie married off, but realizes that he doesn't want anyone but himself to have her. The short synopsis on the back sounded like it would be a good story, but I found it was quite the opposite. I tried reading it as an e-book and as a print book, but I still couldn't get through it. The plot was dry and too predictable and I just couldn't connect with the characters. In comparison to Carol Cox's other books, I found that this was much less interesting, although I didn't find her other books super intriguing either.

    I was given this e-book for free from Bethany House Publishers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Trouble in Store by Carol Cox is a captivating blend of humor, suspense, and romance, that had me turning pages well into the night. The author's focus on the differing viewpoints of Caleb and Melanie added humor into some very tense situations. I also enjoyed being privy to the characters innermost thoughts, which added dimension to the story, and connecting me even more to the characters.

    As the plot developed, the suspense grew keeping me on the edge of my seat and keeping me guessing until the end "who dun it". It also added more conflict to the story and element to the budding romance between Caleb and Melanie.

    Amidst it all are wonderful Biblical truths that add scope to the characters as well as the story.
