Flora’s Wish (The Secret Lives of Will Tucker) has a unique story line. I don’t think I have read another similar story; certainly not one with 4 dead fiances. Wow. The heroine has spunk; that’s for sure. I’m not totally sure what to think of Flora. I do like the hero, Lucas McMinn; all except for that one time…but that’s ok. The supporting characters are all so very interesting and I’d love to know more about a lot of them. The “villian” is not actually in the scene much at all. It appears that he is going to be the similar thread through a set of books since there is another “Secret Lives of Will Tucker” coming out in Aug 2013.
There’s definitely humor, sadness, tragedy, and romance along with some small religious content. The settings are interesting and the descriptions just enough to let me visualize without getting bogged down in them. I’d love to hear more about Flora and Lucas!
Here is the backcover copy:
May 1887–Flora Brimm is determined the fifth time is the charm. Back home she has a reputation as “Fatal Flora,” a woman whose previous four fiancés died in untimely accidents. Flora is desperate to marry, because producing an heir is the only way she can keep her family’s estate. She’s confident this visit to Eureka Springs with her grandmother will help her land a husband.
Pinkerton detective Lucas McMinn is hot on the trail of Will Tucker, the thief who broke his sister’s heart. When he discovers the slippery fellow with Flora, he thinks they are in on the devious plot together. Will Flora be able to convince Lucas of her innocence? Will Lucas catch the elusive Mr. Tucker?
And, more importantly, will Lucas survive if he pursues Flora’s heart?
