To Love and Cherish
In “To Love and Cherish” by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller we are once again welcomed to Bridal Veil Island, Georgia. Melinda Colson works as a ladies maid in Cleveland and has visited to island with her employers for several years. She has become friends with one of the workers on the island, Evan Tarlow. Melinda hopes that Evan will propose to her before she leaves to go back to Cleveland but she is very disappointed when he does not. While apart Melinda wonders if Evan really does love her but Evan knows that he has nothing to offer Melinda at that time. When Melinda receives word that a hurricane has hit the island she quits her job and travels to Georgia because she is worried about Evan. Evan is surprised that Melinda came back and he soon realizes they have different things in mind in their relationship. Melinda is able to get a job as a maid and then is promoted as a special activities planner. Evan is busy cleaning the island from the storm and getting it ready for the tourists to come back. He is also waiting for a promotion and feels the pressure from his supervisors. He knows he needs this promotion in order to provide for Melinda after they are married but there are people who are trying to keep them apart and also something sinister is going on at the island. Will Melinda and Evan live happily ever after?
This is the second book in the Bridal Veil Island series and it will not let you down. Peterson and Miller have done another great job with transporting the reader to the island. You will feel as if you are there with Melinda and Evan as their relationship grows. I highly recommend the first book as well but you do not have to read them in order. I received a complimentary copy of this book to review from Bethany House Publishers.
