Series Seattle Brides
A Bride for Noah revolves around a young woman named Evie Lawrence. When she finds her life as a house maid unfulfilling, she takes a chance in a business partnership with her employer to start a restaurant in Oregon for the growing community of lumberjacks. Little does she know that her new “partner” is a good talker but very poor with managing money. When they get to the lumber camp, Evie and her new female companions (who came along looking for work and husbands) find that they are welcome by most of the men, but not all. In the meantime, she meets Noah Hughes, and handsome man who is helping to run the camp. They butt heads from the very beginning, but as the story continues, they find they are growing on one another.
This was a very nice story. Evie’s character was very admirable, but at times, I found her head strong ways to be a put off. I suppose in that situation, as a woman, you would have to be tough, but sometimes she came across as a know-it-all that wanted to prove herself as good or better than the men, and that bothered me a little about her. That’s just a personal opinion, though, and in no way hindered my enjoyment of the book.
