Trouble In Store – Book Review

Are you ready for an epic battle of the sexes, set in the Wild, Wild West?

When Melanie Ross first arrived at the Deaver estate in Marietta, Ohio, she believed her position as governess would bring her the sense of security that she, a single woman in 1885, craved. But soon, she learned that there was more to watching privileged children than meets the eye! When Melanie finds herself homeless and unemployed due to circumstances beyond her control, she must quickly find a new way to survive.

Caleb Nelson recently moved to the Arizona Territory to start a new life with his son, Levi. He is struggling to make ends meet as he learns the ins and outs of running the mercantile he inherited from his uncle. Life has not been easy since his wife died. Little does Caleb know that life is about to get more complicated than he ever imagined!

When Melanie shows up in the western town of Cedar Ridge looking for Alvin Nelson – her late cousin George’s business partner and half-owner of the Ross-Nelson Mercantile – she hopes he will invite her to work in the mercantile. Instead, she finds his nephew – the less-than-welcoming Caleb Nelson – who is intent on seeing that she leaves town as soon as possible. When both Melanie and Caleb lay claim to the mercantile – there’s bound to be “trouble in store” for them both!

Trouble In Store by Carol Cox tells the story of two worlds colliding. It’s the story of two individuals who, on the surface, seem nothing alike – but, who beneath it all, have plenty in common! Both are trying to come to terms with loss. Both are trying to survive in a tough, cruel world. Both are fighting for something they believe in – something they both believe is theirs. And, both find themselves drawn together – like it or not – when they receive threats from an unknown source and a murder occurs on their doorstep…

If you enjoy historical romances with a humorous twist and westerns with a bit of mystery and intrigue – you will love Trouble In Store!
