Her plan seems to be working--that is, until Tamara Brennan comes to town. Tamara is wealthy and poised as well as beautiful, and immediately turns Colby's head. Evan Parker is smitten by Tamara, too, but unlike Colby, he isn't the dashing, athletic type. He's very smart, no doubt, but rather bookish and unexciting.
Maggie forms a plan: She'll help Evan win Tamara's affection so that Colby will once again notice her. But befriending Evan has unforeseen consequences, and before long, Maggie is more confused than ever about what she truly desires in life.
However, if you cannot sew and are not much of a cook, such as Maggie, it is a hard time. Also, she would rather be fishing or working in the barn than listening to ladies chatter all day. That is, until Mabel Parker approaches her one day about helping her match her brother, Evan, with Miss Tamara Brennan. Evan is a fledgling lawyer just back from school in Boston. He is also very shy and bumbling around women.
Tamara is a beautiful, wealthy young woman that Evan had met while rooming with her brother in college. If Maggie would help Evan woo Tamara, Mabel would help Maggie win Colby Stoddard, a young man Maggie had "loved" forever!! He was handsome, athletic, and chased by all the girls in the county. Maggie was 18 now and did not want to be an "old maid."
So Maggie arranged a meeting with Evan to discuss Evan helping her friend, Tommy, who is accused of murdering his father. She figures this would be a way to bring up a plan to help each of them win their "loved" one.
As you can imagine, this plot has many possible snags already. It also has many you cannot predict. This is a great book that keeps you guessing and wanting to keep reading. Judith Pellas portrayals of her characters are subtle but thorough. She knows how to keep you guessing but also feeling that you are "ahead of the game." Yet through it all, you are learning some valuable lessons, too.
This was an enjoyable book and looks to be part of a great series. -- Linda Demorest, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
