Threads of Love by Andrea Boeshaar ~ A Booketeria Review

About Book:

Emily Sundberg has her life all laid out. She has a respectable job as a teacher and an idea of whom she should marry.  But does God have a better plan?

Emily Sundberg considers herself a proper young lady of the twentieth century. But a decade ago she behaved more like a tomboy. So when the neighbor’s grandson came to visit one summer when she was thirteen, they became fast friends. Emily even got her first kiss—quite by accident.
Unfortunately Jake Edgerton told all the boys something else. Rumors circulated, and Emily caved from embarrassment and guilt. Meanwhile Jake returned home to Fallon, Montana and she never saw or heard from him again.
Over the years Emily has worked hard to prove to her peers and the people of Manitowoc, Wisconsin that, despite past mistakes, she is an upstanding young woman, one worthy of being a schoolteacher—and possibly Andy Anderson's wife. But even with the passing of time, Emily has never forgotten Jake and how he nearly ruined her life…
And now he's a US deputy marshal and he’s back in town!

My Thoughts

Emily Sundberg has grown into a lovely lady though many of her schoolmates may remember her as a tomboy. That is until she turned thirteen and kissed her friend Jake Edgerton. Rumors starting spreading about that infamous kiss and she was sure Jake had told his friends.  She was treated differently by her schoolmates after that rumored kiss. Jake had only been visiting his grandfather for the summer so by the time the rumor got back to her Jake had returned home to Montana and she has not seen hide nor hair of him since.

Emily was able to move past the rumors and prove herself to be a proper lady and a great asset to her community  by becoming a schoolteacher.  She is also pursuing Andy Anderson as a potential husband.  But her thoughts keeps remembering Jake and the kiss that changed her life.

I was so excited to read book three of this series and was not disappointed.  I had grown attached to the characters.  The author kept Emily's character as sassy and under all the fluff and frill she was still the little tomboy wanting a kiss from Jake.  The author writes about how Lily and Jake made great choices for their future.  So, expect many fun twists and turns in this book along with some unexpected romances.

I highly recommend this book.

I rated this book a 5 out of 5.
