Just finished this book. It took me awhile to get into but once I got into a few chapters, I enjoyed it. It had humor and romance. I can see a sequel to this as it left some characters hanging......did Mr. Blackwell find love? How did the mine work out? Does Matilda find her soulmate? Just kidding, Matilda. It appears there was a book that preceded this one. I wish I read that one first and then this one.
