Author: Caryl McAdoo

Genre: Christian Historical Romance

Steel sharpens steel, but will its sparks ignite unfailing love?

Instead of living a pampered life on the civilized east coast with a new husband, rejection compels Christina Adams westward with her widowed brother and his two daughters. Harboring ulterior motives, Ethan Cord, the man her brother hires to accompany the family, is more a match for her, and he appears almost perfect, but how could she possibly trust her instincts about him when she’d been so wrong about her previous fiancé? Will her past ruin her future?

Book Review:

Quick, engaging read. I had some concerns about the modernness of everyone’s language but it was easily overlooked. The setting and characters were fun. With quick wit and snappy comebacks, I felt I was watching a volleyball match as Christine and Ethan volleyed barbs with one another. I love conversations saturated with sarcasm, and Uniquely Common satisfied that point.

The two girls, Samantha and Patricia, were a delight to read. Their attempts at matchmaking made me smile and occasionally shake my head with laughter.

I thought the entire book moved at a quick clip, no sagging portions or periods of inactivity. As soon as you read the last chapter, you know there’s going to be another book. And I’m okay with that.

I wouldn’t say it was overtly spiritual, just a steady little thread. This tactic kept the book light, allowing you to absorb each moment without feeling overwhelmed. My favorite part has to be the journey itself on the train. Caryl McAdoo does a wonderful job making you feel right at home.

More from Caryl

I’m so excited about this year’s Lockets and Lace story! I’ve fallen in love with its characters. Asher and his sister Christina, his girls Samantha and Patricia, and his friend, Ethan Cord is certainly a man’s man though he has a checkered past to overcome.

His wife dies in childbirth, leaving him with two little girls, then when his parents pass, too, what’s to tie Asher Adams to New York?

His younger sister Christina is about to be settled into her new life, married and well cared for, so there’s nothing holding the wine merchant back from his dreams of owning a vineyard in the Napa Valley. He decides a new life in the west is the best thing for him and his daughters.

Then at the last minute, the family is turned upside down when the rogue engaged to Christina dumps her and calls the wedding off. Asher’s already sold the brownstone. She suddenly has nowhere to go and no one to watch over her if he leaves.

She never wanted to, but he insists her only choice is to go with them, accompany him and her nieces and make her new life in California . . . and he knows the perfect man for her, too!

One thing I love about this book is that as it draws to its end in Saint Joseph, Missouri, a new young woman is introduced, Remi, and her book—my May ‘Prairie Roses Collection’ story REMI—continues with the Adams family and segues into a new romance!

I hope readers will love that as well, praying my story gives God glory!
