When newly minted minister Adam Joseph Jordan comes to guide the flock of Butternut Creek Christian Church, Miss Birdie and her friend Mercedes take it upon themselves to educate him on how things should be done and to find him a wife.
Adam isn’t the only new bachelor in town. Having lost his leg in the war in Afghanistan, veteran marine Sam Peterson has come to live in his late aunt’s house. Dealing with post-traumatic stress and depression, Sam wants to be left alone but the community of Butternut Creek can’t seem to do that. Between the matchmaking of the Widows, the eager young minister and the two red-headed sons of his beautiful physical therapist, Willow, playing in his yard, Sam is soon drawn out of his self-induced solitude. Though he falls for Willow, she’s unlike any other woman he’s pursued. Sam doesn’t know where his life is headed and Willow is afraid to commit herself and two sons to another man after being betrayed by her first husband. The Widows will have to put all their energy and scheming into bringing this couple together.
The perfect blend of humour, quick-paced plot and engaging and entertaining characters, this book is for anyone who enjoys reading about the trials and triumphs of small-town America.
