Angie's Take: Tracie is so careful about her research and it comes across in her work. She's a natural story-teller and one I admire greatly. She's also a fellow Montanan. Adding one more hit book to her long, long list of excellence with Embers of Love. Who wouldn't love a story that starts with a runaway bride and the instigator?

ABOUT THE BOOK
Deborah, the determined matchmaker, puts her sights on uniting her brother and dear friend in a true love match. Deborah soon meets Dr. Christopher Clayton, a much-needed addition to the town. As their lives intersect, Deborah realizes that she has a much greater interest in medicine and science than the bookkeeping she was trained in.
But when typhoid begins to spread and Lizzie's jilted fiance returns, Deborah wonders if true love can overcome such obstacles...for those dearest to her, and for herself.
