Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico

I’ve read two books in the Love Finds You series, and each one has been a real treat. Lena Nelson Dooley’s Love Finds You in Golden, New Mexico has a special meaning to me because for many years, I lived just over the mountain from this location. As I read this delightful book, the Wild West came to life for me again, along with sweet memories of the breathtaking scenery. But the best part about the book is its heartwarming story of love, redemption, and forgiveness. There is a huge surprise in this book, one that kept me on the edge of my seat waiting for the “other shoe to drop.” I was not disappointed when another twist came along, making the road to Golden a pleasurable journey indeed.

Here's the story: All that glitters is not gold. It’s 1890, and Golden, New Mexico, is a booming mining town where men far outnumber women. So when an old, wealthy miner named Philip Smith finds himself in need of a nursemaid, he advertises for a mail-order bride—despite the protests of his young friend Jeremiah. Philip’s ad is answered by Madeline Mercer, a lovely woman hoping to escape a perilous situation back East. Though Madeline arrives in town under a cloud of suspicion, she’s able to win over Philip—and gradually Jeremiah himself. But will the secrets she left behind follow her to Golden and tarnish her character beyond redemption?

Lena Nelson Dooley has written more than twenty-five works of fiction and nonfiction. She and her husband, James, have two daughters, four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. They make their home in Texas.
