Love’s Sweet Beginning by Ann Shorey

From the book’s back cover



It isn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry—and Cassie must find work to support them.



Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she’s exactly what his business needs.



With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.



From Jo


Ann Shorey takes a once-privileged mother and daughter and a grocer owner with a past to weave a romantic story resplendent with twists and turns to resolve. Shorey’s secondary characters are as memorable as are her hero and heroine. Descriptions of setting pull you into the story as if you were there, breathing the western dust in the 1800s.
