This was an okay read. I'm a little disappointed that Miller did so much telling and very little showing the readers. I miss the conversations between Jessica and Gage to see the progression of their relationship. On the other hand, she did a great job with outside relationships that Jessica & Gage developed with the town's people.
From back cover:
Intelligent and outspoken, Jessica Barnes will never make a docile wife, and she's never met a man who's wanted anything more. She left her home back East to help her seriously ill brother run the Springwater Gazette, but she arrive in town fo find the family in upheaval and her newspaper about to go bankrupt. Ever efficient, and not shy with her opinions, Jessica rolls up her sleeves and takes charge. Springwater has never met a woman like Jessica, a fact which becomes abundantly clear to one the town's most distinguished men. As mayor of Springwater, Gage Calloway can't stand the way Jessica criticizes his decisions. As a man, though, Gage is finding her a delectable armful he would dearly love to know better. And when a blizzard strikes, stranding them alone, these two strong-willed people find a passion in common they'd never thought possible.
Strong-minded spinster Jessica Barnes is summoned to Springwater by her ailing brother Michael to help him run his newspaper. This is the fifth title in an interconnected series that culminates with "A Springwater Christmas",
