Steel sharpens steel, but will its sparks ignite unfailing love?
Instead of living a pampered life on the civilized east coast with a new husband, rejection compels Christina Adams westward with her widowed brother and his two daughters. Harboring ulterior motives, Ethan Cord, the man her brother hires to accompany the family, is more a match for her, and he appears almost perfect, but how could she possibly trust her instincts about him when she’d been so wrong about her previous fianc√©? Will her past ruin her future?

About the Author

CarylMcAdooAward-winning author Caryl McAdoo prays her story brings God glory, and her best-selling novels—over forty published—delight Christian readers around the world. The prolific writer also enjoys singing the new songs the Lord gives her—listen to a few at YouTube. Sharing four children and eighteen grandsugars with Ron, her high-school-sweetheart-husband of fifty years, she lives in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas. The McAdoos wait expectantly for God to open the next door.

More from Caryl

I’m so excited about this year’s Lockets and Lace story! I’ve fallen in love with its characters. Asher and his sister Christina, his girls Samantha and Patricia, and his friend, Ethan Cord is certainly a man’s man though he has a checkered past to overcome.
His wife dies in childbirth, leaving him with two little girls, then when his parents pass, too, what’s to tie Asher Adams to New York?
His younger sister Christina is about to be settled into her new life, married and well cared for, so there’s nothing holding the wine merchant back from his dreams of owning a vineyard in the Napa Valley. He decides a new life in the west is the best thing for him and his daughters.
Then at the last minute, the family is turned upside down when the rogue engaged to Christina dumps her and calls the wedding off. Asher’s already sold the brownstone. She suddenly has nowhere to go and no one to watch over her if he leaves.
She never wanted to, but he insists her only choice is to go with them, accompany him and her nieces and make her new life in California . . . and he knows the perfect man for her, too!
One thing I love about this book is that as it draws to its end in Saint Joseph, Missouri, a new young woman is introduced, Remi, and her book—my May ‘Prairie Roses Collection’ story REMI—continues with the Adams family and segues into a new romance!
I hope readers will love that as well, praying my story gives God glory!


As I finish this story, I remind myself how gifted this author is. Every story she writes, she puts her heart and soul into it. Her faith is strong and it shows in every story she writes. When I met Christina I was instantly pulled into her story. It does happen on occasion that a young woman is dumped right  before the wedding. Poor Christina is devastated but more importantly I think her pride was a little bruised. Come on ladies, who wants to get dumped as you are about to get married. The scoundrel needs to leave as soon as possible before Christina's brother catches up with him. I liked seeing how the author allowed Christina to slowly heal from her broken heart by taking a journey with her brother and two nieces. 

There may have been a little information left out about the trip. Oh well I'm sure Christina won't mind an extra person tagging along. Christina and her brother Asher are very close and she adores her beautiful, funny nieces. When Ethan appears as the tag along, I could hear Christina gasp a bit. After all he is quite dashing and the perfect match for one certain young woman. I laughed at the banter between the two people who try their best to just be friends. 

The story is a wonderful look at how love slowly develops when two people trust God, and allow themselves to heal from their past.Walking the streets in New Orleans was a treat to experience. What I really liked about Ethan was how patient he was and how protective he became with Christina. I feel like I've been taken back in time where women wore beautiful dresses that flowed and men were gentlemen while escorting their lady around town. The ending is wonderful and I'm anxious to read the authors next story called "Remi."   

I received a digital copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
