GROOMS OF HONOR BOOK 1
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.
