In Search of a Groom
After a life of drudgery on her family’s farm, Cassie Lynn Vickers relishes her freedom working in town as a paid companion for feisty Mrs. Flanagan. When her father suddenly demands she come home, she has no choice. Unless she can find a husband. If only she could convince handsome town newcomer Riley Walker to marry her…
Riley is on the run. He’s desperate to keep his niece and nephew safe from his crooked half brother. But a delay in Turnabout, Texas, shows him everything he didn’t know he was missing: home, family—and Cassie Lynn. Can he find a way to become her Prince Charming…and build a real family with the children and Cassie Lynn?
I hope you’ve enjoyed Cassie Lynn and Riley’s story. I knew as soon as Cassie Lynn popped up as a secondary character in The Holiday Courtship that she needed to have a story of her own. She arrived on the scene and suddenly she was such a fully realized character in my mind. There was so much I knew about her that I couldn’t show in that book. It took me a while to figure out who her hero would be, but I think Riley worked out perfectly to be her forever match.
Both of these characters had some tough issues to work through, issues where it wasn’t easy to see what the “right” choice would be, issues that ultimately required them to take a hard stand, a stand they couldn’t have made without this journey they took together.
And if you enjoyed this book, I hope you’ll be on the lookout for the next in the series. For more information on this and other books set in Turnabout, please visit my website at winniegriggs.com or follow me on facebook at Facebook.com/WinnieGriggs.Author.
