Love’s A Mystery in Last Chance Iowa

This Love’s A Mystery 2-in-1 hardcover book features both a historical romantic mystery written by fellow Canadian Patricia Johns along with my contemporary romantic mystery. Both are set in Last Chance, Iowa, and have a family connection. 

In 1905…

When Anne York agrees to marry Ben Huntington, she understands that Ben’s heart will remain with his late wife. But she is grateful that God has provided her a child–his adorable little daughter. Ben knows his daughter needs a mother, and Anne’s parents need his help so he’s able to give the sweet, loving woman something in return. But when Ben’s workshop is set on fire the day of their wedding, the new couple must figure out who is working against them. While they intended their marriage as a practical solution, did God intend it as a match made in heaven? 


Bereft over the loss of the beloved hand-carved miniatures given to her by her father, Rachel Jones finds an unexpected ally in Curtis Shoemaker, the quiet colleague at her new job. When they discover an estranged branch of Rachel’s family tree, they find that they aren’t the only ones on the trail. Who is the other elusive collector who’ll stop at nothing to beat Rachel and Curtis to the prize? In unraveling the mysterious disappearance and exposing their adversary, they find something more precious than family heirlooms…a chance at forever.
