STORY-LINE ANGUS TRUST BY LINDA HUBALEK:

Angus Trust is book 1 in the Grooms of Honor Series.  Having followed Nolan and Elof in earlier books as they found their happy ever after, Hubalek takes us back to Clear Creek.  Angus is the eldest of Pastor and Kaitlyn Reagan’s sons.  Raised in Clear Creek, Kansas along with five other brothers, he was the only one to take up with the railroad train depot manager; where he developed a love of trains and the rails. He has been a railroad detective for many years following after his love of anything railroad.  After years of detective work for the railroad, he’s beginning to wish for a stationary home with a wife and family.

Daisy Clancy, raised in Clear Creek by her grandparents, owners of the local café, found herself side by side with Angus until the day he left Clear Creek for adventure on the railroad.  Daisy left Clear Creek to get an education and work after Angus left.  To say Angus and Daisy grew up together would be an understatement; they also fell in puppy love; or was it?

Fate has placed Angus and Daisy on the same railroad train headed to Clear Creek when a robbery occurs.  Finding themselves alone at the side of the tracks will memories of old loves return?  My reviews of romance novel, Angus Trust, follows.

 

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Firstly, let me say what a wonderful cast of characters Hubalek’s imagination created for the Grooms of Honor Series.  As I began reading Angus Trust, I felt I was returning to a beloved town filled with my friends, with everyone waiting to tell me the latest gossip and goings-on.  A close-knit town, the Reagan family, although not of blood relation except two of the six, are examples of family love and unconditional support found in Clear Creek.  Clear Creek’s a place of community, love, and support.  I wondered how many of these small towns dotted the prairie and west.

STORY-LINE ELOF’S MISSION:

In Elof’s Mission, we are back in Morgan’s Crossing.  Author Linda Hubalek’s story begins at the cemetery as Elof Lundahl’s placing an iron cross on Nolan’s father-in-laws grave.  If you have followed the Grooms With Honor Series, you will remember Nolan from Nolan’s Vow. If not, Hubalek gives enough background in her stories to bring you up to speed.  Hearing a wagon coming, he finds Swedish immigrant Linnea Meyer, her son Jamie, and Linnea’s husband’s body. Although the landlord came with Linnea to the cemetery, far from kind, he insist she vacate her home before nightfall.

Linnea a mail order bride of eight days, finds herself with a dead husband, a five-year old stepson, and no place to go.  Elof, compassionate and with a good heart, offers to help her and Jamie.  Elof, recently retired from the Army, is ready to settle down with a wife and family.  What he didn’t count on was Linnea and Jamie.  Traveling with Linnea and Jamie opens Elof to a new world of love, romance, and fatherhood.

Come along with Linnea, Jamie, Elof, and the town of Sweetwater Springs, as romance, once again, is on the horizon.  My reviews for western romance novel, Elof’s Mission, follows.
