Copper is excited to finally start her new job teaching school, but tragedy strikes the first day. Due to a series of unfortunate events, the school house catches fire and two children fall down and are left in the blaze. Copper is able to rescue them, but in doing so she falls, further injuring a leg that she can barely walk on.
The town doctor doesn’t know what to do to care for Copper, other than keep her drugged until the wagon train can come through and take her to a larger town and a more knowledgeable doctor. But unfortunately, the train that comes is Josh Redlin’s and he is a man that Copper cannot get along with at all.
Copper and Josh butt heads until Josh finally lays down the facts to Copper, making her see reason. They agree to stay out of each others way, but Copper is forced to seek Josh out for some minor things while en route. What will it take for her to realize that the one man who drives her crazy is the one that she needs?
One True Love is the third and final story in the Belles of Timber Creek series. I enjoyed getting to know Audrey, Willow, and Copper in the earlier books, but even if you haven’t read the series all the way through, you’d be able to read One True Love without getting lost. However, if you want to know what brought the girls together in Thunder Ridge, then you’d want to start at the beginning.
I enjoyed getting to know Copper better, and hearing the story that finally brought her and Josh together, since I saw the sparks in the second book. One True Love is a delightful story that will not disappoint. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.
