This was a very nicely written novella. I have read the Eagle Harbor series that this story is a prequel to, and I never would have guessed that Hiram and Mabel’s love story began this way, based on what I had read about them! It gave some interesting background.
Being a novella, things had to move at a much quicker pace than a full-length novel, however, I still felt very connected to these two characters. There was plenty of trouble for them to deal with and that made for an interesting story. The development of Hiram and Mabel’s romance was great! There was a lot of chemistry between those two. I loved the way the author ended the novella, as well. It left me with a very happy feeling. Short and sweet and oh, so enjoyable!
I received a complimentary copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
With her brother facing trial for a murder he didn’t commit, German immigrant Mabel Krause needs a lawyer who can help prove her brother’s innocence. The only trouble is–she can’t afford one.
Hiram Cummings needs money to return to law school, and the fastest way to earn it is by working as a legal clerk for the powerful and rich Rhett Vandergriff. When a desperate immigrant comes to him for help, he finds himself on a mission to prove a man’s innocence, risking his job in the process.
But all is not as it appears, and Hiram soon learns that not only is his job at risk, but he’s also in danger of losing his heart–if he and Mabel don’t lose their lives first.
Love’s Violet Sunrise is a prequel to the bestselling Eagle Harbor Series, as well as part of the American State Flower Collection.

Naomi and her family live only three miles from Lake Superior, where the scenery is beautiful and they average 200 inches of snow per winter.
