To Love and Cherish by Peterson and Miller
From the back cover:
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?
I like the concept of To Love and Cherish by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. However, I felt the plot moved at a snail's pace. I was frustrated at times with the lack of progress in the story. I felt that several of the chapters said the same thing just in a different way and had no progression. When the authors did get to the climax of the story, I felt cheated. Like it was an afterthought. It was a let down.
Overall I was VERY disappointed in this book and it's lack of quality.
