Lilacs for Juliana by Carrie Fancett Pagels - Review of the third book in The Christy Lumber Camp Series

Petite Juliana Beauchamps possesses a vivid imagination, which comes in handy as a librarian. When a handsome giant of a lumberjack comes to town and rescues her from possible tragedy, she's shaken by the event. A dashing beer baron, from Milwaukee, also pursues Juliana's attention. Meanwhile, a library trustee determines to push out the female librarians.

Set in 1891, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Book Three in The Christy Lumber Camp Series focuses on Richard "Moose" Christy, the youngest of the sons, as he prepares to manage his first lumber camp. When Yost hires Juliana to organize his personal library, and her letters from Wisconsin suggest foul play, will Richard need to save her once again? And will his secret need to be revealed to win her heart?

I am enjoying this series, I like the setting, the time period, the characters and I love lilacs so this was extra special to me. This book, as with most series, starts a little repetitive to let you know the background but then it picks up and moves right along. So many misunderstandings, we are all guilty of thinking we know what someone is thinking, why they are doing something and/or what direction they are going without asking them. This may lead to a lot of problems or a big loss on our part when we do that. A very nice quick, fun, read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
