Ruth Barnes has been a cook at the Brody Hotel almost since the business first opened. She’s seen countless friends fall in love and get married, and she wonders why such things haven’t happened for her. Maybe she’s not meant to find romance – maybe she should concentrate on opening the bakery she’s dreamed of owning. 

Alex Barker has come to town on business – to help his brother purchase a larger ranch. He wasn’t expecting to come face-to-face with the world’s most beautiful woman when he arrived, nor to be cut down by her within minutes of meeting her. He also didn’t expect to become embroiled in something that could cost him his life. 

Perhaps the so-called magic of the Brody Hotel can set things right again.

Jennie Beauregard was a widow on the run. Not that she had to run fast. How fast can a ninety-something railroad tycoon go?

With another unwanted arranged marriage staring her in the face, there was only one thing to do! Get married to someone else! But to do that, Jennie needed a matchmaker. Imagine her surprise when she wound up with two!

But despite the help, she wasn’t prepared to marry someone so different from the men her brother chose. Nor was she ready to have a whole new family. Unfortunately, some of them weren’t ready for her either. How was love ever going to blossom?
