Christmas Roses by Amanda Cabot
Amanda Cabot is a popular speaker and the author of Paper Roses, Scattered Petals, Tomorrow’s Garden, and Summer of Promise, as well as a number of novels under various pen names. She’s an avid traveler who finds inspiration for new stories in her travels and enjoys sharing new parts of the country with her readers. A former Easterner, she now lives in Wyoming.
From the book’s back cover:
Celia Anderson doesn’t have a husband on her Christmas wish list. But when a traveling carpenter finds lodging at her boardinghouse, she admits that she might remarry if she found the right man—the kind of man who would bring her roses for Christmas. It would take a miracle, though, to find roses during a harsh Wyoming winter.
But Christmas, after all, is the time for miracles . . .
Amanda Cabot gives us a sweet love story that takes a while for the parties to realize it. Celia Anderson, a widow for a year, receives advice from the parson’s wife and others that her baby needs a father and she needs a husband. But Celia has no desire or plan to remarry. To help her get by financially she turns her house into a boardinghouse but has few boarders. Her new boarder is mighty good looking but is not forthcoming about his anger and hate. Amanda's characters and story are memorable.
