About the Author:

I laughed when my husband suggested I write a book. Me? What did I know about writing?
Yet the notion held possibility, so I hatched a plan. A year later, I sent off my first completed
manuscript and promptly received a score of polite rejections. Bruised but undaunted, I forged
ahead, new plan in hand. Later, armed with the knowledge acquired from writing classes,
seminars and the help of fellow writers, I finished my second story. Eliza is that story.

Historical Romance
Date Published: 10/1/12
Publisher: Champagne Books

Posing as a widow, Eliza Danton flees an abusive marriage determined to bury the past and live a solitary life on the Minnesota frontier. When she finds herself homeless, her livelihood threatened and her safety compromised, she relies on her only resource, a man who stirs a forbidden longing and rocks the very foundation of her well-laid plans. As her world shrinks with lies and deception, the only way out is the truth, but the truth may strike a deadly price.
Haunted by a tragic past, Will Heaton hides his scarred heart and vows never to love again. But a chance encounter with a mysterious widow awakens painful memories and a yearning he can’t ignore. When she’s harassed by the same man he believes killed his wife, he grabs at a chance to resolve past mistakes and possibly find love and redemption in the process.
As Eliza and Will struggle to trust again, the past returns with a renewed vengeance, testing them in ways they never thought possible. 

My Review:
I really enjoyed  Eliza, it was a bit different than most Historical Romance with a strong woman trying to make it on her own.

Eliza was escaping from her brutal husband Abe who beat her by saying she was widow, she was helping a family with their children along the way to the Minnesota frontier  town of Red Bluff.  She was then planning on staying with her cousin the town doctor and his family.  Along the way she encounters three men all with different intentions.  Karl the German immigrant who wanted to marry her, Will the lumber mill owner who wanted her and would help her in many ways along the way, and  Cuzzy who wanted the reward money from her husband.

Eliza was a strong woman who did not want to have to depend on anyone else.  She spent her savings on a newspaper business and started writing and running the town newspaper.  With her strong opinions she was not being popular with all of the town people. This leading to a few problems along with her husband searching for her.  The story had enough twist and turns to keep me interested to the last page.
