Lumberjacks and Ladies : Four Stories of Romance Among the Pines by Jennifer Lamont Leo, Naomi Musch, Candice Sue Patterson, and Pegg Thomas // Review


A quartet of stories about lumberjacks finding love and standing up for their ladies. 

I often enjoy picking up these quick reads in between heavier subject matters, with sweet stories that can be read in one sitting. 

Winnie is determined to take care of her family, and she doesn't know what to think of the the flirtatious lumberjack who always seems to be popping up just in time. I admired her work ethic and how she fought for her family. 

In the Northwoods of Michigan Elizabeth hesitantly returns to the lumber camp where she was raised to cook alongside her mother, while searching for her next teaching position. This was a cute story, and I liked that Wesley was kind and put himself out there to win Elizabeth. 

Widowed Maggie is looking for a husband to help save her farm. But when Jack shows up, will she be able to let her heart love again? An adorable mail-order-husband romance. Jack is such a man of honorable character and faith, I liked him right away for giving Maggie time and space. Jack is probably one of my favorite heroes of this collection. 

Michael is a privileged son of a banker, used to living life on his own terms until his father decides to challenge him to do better by sending him to Idaho to work with his uncle and aunt. Can he help a widow save her struggling lumber camp? I really enjoyed this story, and I liked how Michael grew over the course of the book, finding a passion for helping others. 

Overall, an enjoyable collection of novellas that show that good things can come it in smaller portions. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
