The Christmas Star Bride by Amanda Cabot
Esther Hathaway owns and runs a bakery. She is a single middle-aged woman who has never married, although she has had someone in her past who she lost in wartimes. She lives together with her niece, Susan, who will be getting married. Susan's parents died as Susan was still young and was raised by Esther.
Their family tradition for the family brides was to give a gift of a Christmas Star, painted with the bride and groom. Now that Esther was in Cheyenne, it was hard to find someone with the artistic talents she needed to complete this family tradition for Susan. She had been searching for someone to complete this task and nearly given up all hope of finding someone when she came across an ad placed by Jeremy Snyder, an artist.
As he meets Esther, she is certain that he is capable of the request that she has made and he begins sketching Susan and her fiance in a part of the bakery. This brings in customers who are interested onlookers and possible new clientele for Jeremy.
As the days pass Esther begins having feelings for Jeremy as does he for her. But neither is quite confident of the feelings of the other. This is a sweet story and a story that will bring a smile to the reader. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it!
