The last thing Martha Wentworth York needs is more change in her life. She's already lost her husband to what the politicians are calling "The War to End All Wars." If that weren't enough, her brother and sisters have gone to France as part of the war effort. Being alone in her hometown of Canela, Texas is certainly not the life Martha would have chosen, but there's no point in thinking of what might have been. Happy endings, Martha has learned, are meant for other people. Instead of dreaming about the future, she devotes herself to her hometown, where she becomes an indispensable member of the community, teaching school and serving on every imaginable civic committee. Life settles into a comfortable pattern until the day a handsome stranger drives into town. Tom Fleming is a man who thrives on change. A renowned photographer, he travels around the world and has no intention of ever settling down. Marriage, a family, and small town life are not for him. When Tom arrives in Canela on his cross-country search for a woman whose picture will inspire the soldiers abroad, he can't believe his luck. Martha York is perfect! All Tom needs is a day or two in Canela, and he'll be ready to head back to New York, his prize-winning photograph in hand. But life, as Tom has good reason to know, doesn't always go according to plan, and his two-day stay is extended by Martha's stubborn refusal to be photographed as well as an attraction neither one of them wants to admit. Soon the rumor mill is predicting a wedding. It's a preposterous idea. Or is it?

A sweet story of a small-town school teacher a traveling photographer who come together while he is in search of the perfect picture for the fourth of July. He believes he found the perfect subject and pursues her, falling in love with that person. Does he mean what he says? Are there mixed messages between them? Does the small-town know something this couple doesn't? He has always traveled. She has been a stay in town girl. Can they get past their differences? A very sweet read.
I started reading this book, then stopped a short way into it because it really was not drawing me in at all. Later I gave it another try and finished it. It is pleasant enough, but not nearly as interesting as I hoped.
I really wanted to like this book. However, I found it very, very predictable, and the characters one dimensional. I knew what was going to happen three chapters before it did, and the dialogue did nothing to liven the book up.
I have loved all of the War Brides series. Each one was unique and entertaining. I just wish they had been longer.
good read
Moved too slowly for my taste
A little predictable but a good read. Looking forward to the other books in the series.
Wonderful read!
