SAVING SUSANNAH JONES by Carolyn Twede Frank

SAVING SUSANNAH JONES by Carolyn Twede Frank

This book began with a bang and I was excited to read it. Susannah was easy to fall in love with and have empathy for. Joseph's shyness was very endearing which made him easy to love as well. Their unusual courtship was fun to watch grow, but when they got married, I was surprised at how much of the book was still left. Maybe it was distractions within my own family or maybe it was the book itself, I'm not sure which, but I had a hard time with the rest of it. I could have been that I had it all figured out too early to enjoy it unfold. I'm not sure. It is a fun, clean read that I would recommend to anyone though.

In the still of a cool Colorado evening, the Circle J Ranch house burns to the ground, leaving Susannah Jones and her two brothers orphaned and homeless. Embittered by the tragedy, Susannah's older brother grows increasingly cruel, leading Susannah to make the difficult choice to leave the last of her family behind to forge a new life for herself. It is the kindness of Dr. Kate, the woman physician in town, as well as a chance meeting with a rugged homesteader that give Susannah the strength she needs to escape.
When Joseph Iverson encounters the harassed young woman on his land one day, he has no thought but to provide the assistance she so clearly needs. Overcoming his shyness, he takes Susannah under his wing and agrees to a marriage of convenience to liberate her from her brother. As the pair works side by side, their mutual admiration deepens. But their happy existence is threatened all soon by a series of "accidents" on the farm. With danger looming ever closer, Susannah and Joseph must discover who is bent on their destruction before the life and marriage they've built together goes up in flames.
