Penguin Putnam
The New York Times bestselling author of Silver Thaw returns to Mystic Creek in a novel about a love that inspires the courage to start over…and the strength to reclaim a dream.
When Taffeta Brown was viciously betrayed by her wealthy husband, she lost everything—including custody of their daughter, Sarah. Now that Taffy has moved to Mystic Creek, Oregon, to start over, she unexpectedly meets the one man who might help her get Sarah back.
Barney Sterling, a local lawman, finds himself drawn to the lovely, guarded Taffy, but he’s stunned by her proposition—that they marry immediately to improve her chances of regaining custody of her daughter. Barney takes marriage too seriously to commit himself to a woman he hardly knows. Yet soon his sympathies fall with the desperate Taffy, and pretending to be in love becomes the easiest part of the plan. But they have no idea what they’re up against, or what they’re willing to risk to make a miracle come true in Mystic Creek.

Catherine Anderson is a marvelous story teller and did not disappoint with this book. The characters come alive and draw you in to share their personal struggles and their joys. Well written.

New Leaf (Mystic Creek, #2) by Catherine Anderson is the new book in this series set in Mystic Creek, Oregon and the focus is on Barney from the Sterling family this time. This is another well written traditional romance from Ms. Anderson that had me reading well into the night. Even though it is book two in the series, it is easily read as a standalone.
Barney Sterling is a deputy in Mystic Creek who has to respond to a disturbance call at Taffeta Brown’s apartment. He finds the shop owner is not the ‘Plain Jane’ that she pretends to be around town and he wants to discover her secrets. Taffeta has been married and has a little girl that was taken from her due to lies told by her ex-husband. She is trying to get her new life together in Mystic Creek to get her daughter back. When she finds out her daughter is in danger due her ex-husband’s criminal behavior, she proposes a marriage of convenience to Barney to get her back sooner rather than later and out of danger.
This book is a must read for lovers of traditional romances. The characters make you laugh, cry and cheer. I am very much looking forward to the next book in this series!
