Like Diana, on Tea Time Reviews, my heroine Rebecca Jane (Daggen)Hart loves all things tea! She runs a mercantile in bustling turn-of-the-century St. Ignace Michigan, situated about the Straits of Mackinac in the Upper Peninsula. My own mother grew up in a lumber camp after leaving Kentucky and her stories and my own growing up experinces inspired the first book in this series "The Fruitcake Bride" which was part of an eight author Christmas Traditions Series. I got so excited about my characters I didn't want to leave them! So The Christy Lumber Camp Series was born. And I added The Lumberjacks' Ball and am two thirds of the way through the third book - Lilacs for Juliana, also set in the Upper Peninsula.

The Lumberjack's Ball
By: Carrie Fancett Pagels
I really enjoyed this book. I have read other books written by Carrie this one is written very well. I loved the characters. Rebecca who has come to town to run her fathers mercantile . In search of a cabinet maker. Garrett Christy applies for the job. There is something familiar about Rebecca. Where does he remember her from? A girl from his past but Rebecca wasn't her name. Why would she be using a fake name? What is she hiding from? I found this to be a very sweet romance story written in good taste. Get the book find out about her past and then what the future holds for Rebecca and Garrett. I give this book 5 stars.
