Courting Mr. Emerson | Book Review


When the fun-loving and spontaneous artist Willow West meets buttoned-up, retired English teacher George Emerson, it's not exactly love at first sight. Though she does find the obsessive-compulsive man intriguing. Making it her mission to get him to loosen up and embrace life, she embarks on what seems like a lost cause--and finds herself falling for him in the process.

A confirmed bachelor, George vacillates between irritation and attraction whenever Willow is around--which to him seems like all too often. He's not interested in expanding his horizons or making new friends; it just hurts too much when you lose them.

But as the summer progresses, George feels his defenses crumbling. The question is, will his change of heart be too late for Willow?

With her signature heart and touches of humor, fan favorite Melody Carlson pens a story of two delightfully eccentric characters who get a second chance at life and love.

It’s a romance of opposites in Melody Carlson’s Courting Mr. Emerson and it proves to be a lot of fun.

As their professions suggest (no offense intended), artist Willow West and retired teacher George Emerson could not be more different. She is a spontaneous free-spirit, while he is staid and set in his ways. She challenges him to embrace life more fully, but can her presence not only loosen his habits, but also his confirmed-bachelor heart?

Throughout Courting Mr. Emerson, I especially enjoyed that Willow and George are older characters. Rarely are romance-novel characters in their stage of life, so it is great to get a bit of variety now and then. And it helps, of course, that their story is so sweet, full of humor and charm, sure to please readers of the genre.


I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
