The Drifter's Proposal by Kristin Holt
Sometimes it’s the silent ones that feel the deepest. Adeline found herself looking forward to the large, silent drifter who came to her family bakery often to enjoy their wares. The day a Denver banker darkens the bakery doorstep, claiming the mortgage on the building was due, money that Adeline doesn’t have, the drifter becomes her knight in shining armor when he offers to help discover the validity of this claim.
The strong, yet silent Malloy proves that still waters run deep as he wears his heart on his sleeve for the feisty Adeline. Together they uncover the truth behind the secret mortgage her father took out and what a vile monster this banker is. Has Adeline misread Malloy’s intentions or is there something in his past, present and the unknown future that prevents him from giving his love completely to her? Can the young baker find the recipe for love that Malloy will crave as much as her pies?
Shades of evil villains versus the good guys! The Drifter’s Proposal Kristin Holt is part mystery, frosted liberally with deceit and a wonderful budding romance that cannot be denied. Adeline is no Shrinking Violet and Malloy has just enough honor and mystery to seem larger than life. A sweet tale of romance that builds slowly while the tension of the threat of losing everything keeps things interesting!
Kristin Holt has whipped up a wonderful Holiday read for those who know that love can conquer all.
