"Melinda Colson has been waiting months for Evan, the assistant gamekeeper at the Bridal Veil Island resort, to propose. Without an offer of marriage, she must return to Cleveland with the family she works for as a lady's maid. Evan isn't afraid of hard work, and he hopes to be promoted soon. He wants to marry Melinda--but not until he's sure he can support her and a family. Letters strengthen their romance until a devastating storm strikes the island. With no word from Evan, Melinda knows she must journey back to Bridal Veil in search of her beloved. But the hurricane isn't the last calamity to shake up Bridal Veil. Melinda finds a new job on the island, but still no offer of marriage comes her way. Has she given her heart to the wrong person? Will she ever find a man to love and cherish?" (Publisher's Description)
This is the second book in the Bridal Veil series, but it can easily be read as a stand alone. I really enjoyed reading this book. Melinda is impatient and impetuous and often acts before thinking things completely through. Evan is more practical, desiring to be able to provide for them before asking Melinda to marry him. There are also a few other subplots that add a fullness to a wonderfully written story. The descriptions of the island were so captivating that I could almost picture it. I cannot wait for the final book in the series!
