About the Book
Lydia King knows what it's like to be in need, so when she joins the Teaville Moral Society, she genuinely hopes to help the town's poor. But with her father's debts increasing by the day and her mother growing sicker by the week, she wonders how long it will be until she ends up in the poor house herself. Her best chance at a financially secure future is to impress the politician courting her, and it certainly doesn't hurt that the moral society's president is her suitor's mother. Her first task as a moral society member—to obtain a donation from Nicholas Lowe, the wealthiest man in town—should be easy . . . except he flat-out refuses.
Despite appearances, Nicholas wants to help others but prefers to do it his own way, keeping his charity private. When Lydia proves persistent, they agree to a bargain, though Nicholas has a few surprises up his sleeve. Neither foresee the harrowing complications that will arise from working together. When town secrets are brought to light, this unlikely pair must decide where their beliefs—and hearts—truly align.
About the Author
Much to her introverted self's delight, Melissa Jagears hardly needs to leave her home to be a homeschooling mother and historical romance novelist. She doesn't have to leave her house to be a housekeeper either, but she's doubtful she meets the minimum qualifications to claim to be one in her official bio. Her passion is to help Christian believers mature in their faith and judge rightly.
A Heart Most Certain book one in the Teaville Moral Society by Melissa Jagears is delightful and fantastic read. Jagears creates charming characters that readers will immediately love. The story is about a young woman interested in helping the poor, but is on the verge of ending up in the poorhouse herself. It is her struggle to find a way to financially support her family. It also brings to light the struggles of women in the red light district and how some of them want to break free. And it has a bit of a love triangle that readers will thoroughly enjoy as well. I would recommend this story to readers that enjoy stories with struggles, heartache, in addition to romance.
