The Thurston Heirloom

Suzanne Stengl. Mya & Angus, $9.99 trade paper (176p) ISBN 978-0-9880365-9-8
In the ninth entry in the multiauthor Thurston Hotel series, Stengl (The Ghost and Christie McFee) writes about human decency and finding home. When 28-year-old Mariah Patrick steps off a Greyhound bus in the inviting Alberta town of Harmony, she has no money, no friends, and no known connections to the town, but she’s ready for a brand new start. Recovering from recent losses—being jilted at the altar, grieving the death of someone close to her—Mariah is seeking peaceful anonymity and a business degree. Why she chose Harmony of all places is a mystery, but mountain guide and sporting goods store owner Teague Farraday is glad that she did. Guided by a too-charming-by-half deus ex machina in the form of a well-dressed elderly gentleman, Mariah magically finds shelter (Thurston Hotel), sustenance (also the hotel), and a sweetie (Teague). Harmony and its inhabitants will hold great appeal for readers seeking total immersion in romantic escapism. (BookLife)
