About this book:
The Husband Hunt

Theater singer Fiona O'Keefe is on a quest to form the perfect family for her orphaned niece. It's a shame handsome and musically talented Sawyer Evans can't support a household on his sawmill-manager wages. Fiona needs a respectable gentleman of means. And if she can't find one in Singapore, Michigan, then she'll just have to look for a husband in the mail-order want ads…

Sawyer doesn't want Fiona to marry a stranger…or anyone other than him. It would be easy to reveal that he's secretly heir to a railroad fortune. But Sawyer's determined to be a self-made man, so he isn't willing to take his father's money. Instead, can he prove to Fiona that the man she needs is already by her side?

My thoughts:
I want to start off by saying that this book is a part of a series but you can read it as a stand alone as I have not read any of the other books and was not at all lost. Both main characters Fiona and Sawyer were people I found likable. You have to respect Sawyer for not taking the easy road and living off his father's money. Instead he wanted to make it on his and prove that he could do it. Fiona was trying to do what she could to make a happy healthy home for her niece. Both people had a lot on their shoulders. I liked the overall theme of this book as well as the time period. I like how this author's books make me feel good after reading them.
