With Good Intentions, written by Jo Huddleston, is book one in the Secret Identity series. It is a short romance story based in 1959
Wainworth Development has purchased all but one business on the block they want for development. Oscar Wainworth has sent many men to try to make the purchase but none have been able to. Now Oscar is sending his William.
William visits the ice cream shop and spends time getting to know the owner, Jean Stewart. He finds out the reason behind them wanting to hold onto the shop and the dreams she has. William works with his father to make a deal that will allow them to make the purchase yet still allow Jean to have her ice cream shop and fulfill her dreams. The only thing is he has lied to the owner, giving a false name and occupation. During their meetings they have developed a friendship and now he has to tell her the truth of who he is.
This is a cute little romance story that can be read basically in one sitting. Perfect for the rainy afternoon. The part in the story that stands out to me is that the men who were originally sent, did not treat the women like they would men. And when William went, he spent the time to get to know the women and know the reason behind their attachment to the ice cream shop.
One thing the author points out with the story is that once you tell a lie, it changes things. Either you need to keep telling the lie or you need to confess the lie and pray that others will forgive you for lying to them.
This is a good clean story set in Alabama in 1959. Anyone who is looking for a short story to read for the evening or afternoon would enjoy this story. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series.
I received a copy of this book from the author through BookClub network. I have freely chosen to write this honest review.
