This is a beautiful story about a woman named Dessa Wade investigating the disappearance of Charity Dawson. After renting a the mysterious cottage where Charity disappeared Dessa is thrust over a hundred years in the past to 1890 where she will not only find Charity, but possibly her true love.
Dessa Wade is definitely not some wilting violet and she doesn’t let anyone especially not some hundred year old marshal who tells her what to do.
Marshal Cole Jeffers is somewhat of a typical thought hunky, 19th century man who is used to more delicate and feminine women. Dessa wade is a strange, but wonderful surprise. He has always wanted a woman of his own and after meeting Dessa thinks she might be the one. In order for their happily ever after to happen he must not only keep her from getting killed, but convince her to stay in the past. Their relationship was really sweet and they definitely had chemistry. I think these two characters balanced each other out perfectly. The book had a really good flow to it and the scenes wove together very nicely.
