A Tailor Made Bride

When a dressmaker who values beauty tangles with a liveryman who condemns vanity, the sparks begin to fly!

Jericho "J.T." Tucker wants nothing to do with the new dressmaker in Coventry, Texas. He's all too familiar with her kind--shallow women more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothes, this seamstress is not at all what he expected.

Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff manner, while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man?

When Hannah decides to help Jericho's sister catch a beau--leading to consequences neither could have foreseen--will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?

Book Description

Everyone who leaves home carries with them a suitcase of memories, rules, expectations and even prejudices.    When Hannah steps off the train excited about starting her new tailoring business the first person she meets is Jericho.    It doesn't take long to realize that they are carrying suitcases from two completely backgrounds and it takes even less time for them to clash.      However, for every run in there is a random act of kindness lurking close behind.   

Hannah starts living her life and performing her own acts of kindness.     To a widowed man who has been grieving too long.     To a single mom barely making ends meet.     To a lonely young girl who desperately needs a friend.     Hannah shines Christ to her corner of the world.       Eventually she cracks the rough exterior of Jericho, but like in most good story lines, it takes a rough turn to finally get his attention.

Such a good book.   I can't wait to tuck this into one of the baskets I am making for one of the teen girls I am coaching this summer.
