ROMANCE WASN’T WHAT LAKEN HAD IN MIND . . .
Laken Kroft left home eight years ago and never looked back. Who knew when she applied for the promotion to postmaster that she’d end up in Romance, Arkansas, and much too close to her parents, the town drunk and the local gossip maven? Hayden Winters has his hands full raising his paraplegic nephew, Brady, and wrestling with his guilt over having caused the child’s injury. When the boy’s father, Laken’s brother, turns up and starts talking custody, Laken’s influence is Hayden’s only hope. But whose side is she really on? Will their mutual bond with their sever-year-old nephew draw them closer or rip them asunder? Will Laken accept Hayden :Signed, Sealed, Delivered?’ or be forced to turn her back on him and ‘Return to Sender’?
Review of White Doves:
“Hayden Winters is raising his paraplegic nephew, Brady, when he meets Laken Kroft, the attractive new postmaster in town. Turns out, however, that her brother is Brady’s father who left town and Hayden’s sister before the boy was born and claims never to have heard about her death or their son. Now that he knows, he wants to move to another state with the boy but Hayden is completely against the idea. And Laken and her brother want nothing to do with their rather notorious parents. As Hayden and Laken begin to fall in love, he wonders whose side she is on. The dilemma is solved only when people give up their rights and begin showing love and compassion to others.
This was a fun book to read; the story was interesting and the characters were well-developed and lifelike, except for Hayden who was a little too perfect. I couldn’t imagine how the problem of what would happen with Brady would be solved but I was glad when it all worked out without anything strange happening to the story. The lessons of forgiveness and selflessness come through clearly without being preachy.”
