Summary

What would you give up for love?

For the most part, Geoffrey Drayton is content with his life in Iron Creek. Having thrown himself into work since the death of his wife, Geoffrey is now the most popular carpenter in town. But the life of a widower is a lonely and empty one. After watching so many of his friends find happiness with mail-order brides, Geoffrey decides it is time for him to take a chance—and advertises for a bride of his own. 

Soon he receives a reply from the vivacious Natalie Walters. Natalie is charming and fun, and Geoffrey quickly finds himself captivated by her letters. But there is a catch! Natalie wants him to leave Iron Creek to live with her in the city. Now, Geoffrey is faced with the choice of whether he should follow Natalie or stay in the town he loves—but is there anything worth staying for in Iron Creek?

Jeannie Porter has known Geoffrey Drayton for most of her life. She adored him when she was a girl and stuck by him through his tragic marriage—all the while keeping her feelings for him to herself. So, when Geoffrey suddenly brings home the lovely Miss Walters, Jeannie braces herself for another painful time of seeing Geoffrey fall in love with someone other than her. Because compared to the lively and beautiful Natalie Walters, what chance could Jeannie have of winning Geoffrey’s affection?

The Carpenter’s Mail Order Dilemma is a heartwarming story of secret love and following your heart. Will Geoffrey choose Natalie over everything he loves? And how will Jeannie bear it if he does?

Unrequited love

Jeannie and Geoffrey have been best friends since the were kids. Jeannie supported Geoffrey even through the tragedy of his dying wife many years ago. However, Jeannie has a secret. She has always loved him and waits for the day he realises this so they can be together. But her plan's quickly change when Geoffrey seeks the hand of another woman out of town. When another man takes interest in her, things seem to be heading on a path to marriage, but she can't stop thinking about what she could have had with Geoffrey.

This is quite a frustrating love story about two people who refuse to communicate to each other about how they feel. It went on for far too long but the turn-around was sone in a decent way.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
