Pinewood Weddings Series
Matthew Calvert found himself the caretaker of his niece and nephew after a sudden death of his brother and his wife. And now he has taken a new pastorate in Pinewood. He hoped the children would adjust easier. He wanted a wife but never had found the right woman, not that he didn’t have choices at his old church and he quickly found plenty of eager mothers and daughters here as well. Only one woman had ever tugged at him in a unique way. The prim and proper Ms. Wright. She also seemed to give him the cold shoulder. But oh how she warmed up to young Joshua and Sally.
I enjoy Dorothy's writing and this book continues her writing talents. A woman not wanting a man, a man only wanting that particular woman, a very egotistical young woman who has trouble pulling herself away from a mirror….and only does to flirt with the new pastor. Add a stray dog and young kitten along with a sad dose of illness run wild and you have a story that will hold your attention from beginning to end.
