An ever-resourceful widow, Elenora Watkins arrives in El Dorado ready to go into partnership with Miles Rutledge. When he refuses, Elenora becomes the competition across the street. Is this town big enough for the two of them? Miles can’t help but stick his well-polished boot in his mouth whenever he comes face-to-face with Elenora. Can he find a way to win her heart while destroying her business? Miles’s mother, Maude, is bent on Elenora becoming her new daughter-in-law while Elenora’s daughter, Tildy, thinks Miles would make a perfect papa. How far will these meddlers go to unite this enterprising pair?

What a joyful read this was - from the minute Elenora steps down from the stage with her daughter to find she's not wanted at the mercantile she's accepted a partnership in because she's a she, you know sparks are going to fly.

Setting up in opposition across the road is the ultimate revenge on Mile Rutelege Despite his rather sexist style it's impossible not to like him just a little. He very quickly realizes he likes Elenora and from the minute he calls her Ellie you just know their fate is sealed.

A cute a quirky tale that's makes a wonderful rainy afternoon simply fly by.
