Mice and Marriage by Sophie Dawson


A woman’s scream has Turner Metcalf running into the building ready to defend whomever she is. He finds Noelle Copeland standing on a table terrified from seeing a mouse. Thus begins the courtship of a man with a secret and a woman who’s been betrayed in the past.
Noelle is intrigued by Turner who not only takes an interest in her but likes and pays attention her young sons. But something holds her back from fully trusting him. His frequent relatively unexplained travels to various parts of the world.
Turner came to town to spend the holidays with his sister. He never expected to find someone he could love as well as two small boys he wants to help raise. But, a project keeps him from planning for a future, any future, let alone one with Noelle.
Conspiring with Noelle’s sons, mice fill in the spaces leading to laughter as Turner tries to find a way to overcome the doubts of a woman afraid of Mice and Marriage.
Will his frequent travel and hidden agenda end things before they really get started? Will he live through his mission and be able to consider a future with this ready-made family? What about Noelle’s ex-husband and his new girlfriend? Will they mess things up for Noelle and Turner? Can love find a way to overcome the doubts of a woman afraid of Mice and Marriage?

Love and marriage come to us inspired by many things. Who would have thought that mold, spots, and mice would bring love and marriage? Well, they have. Mice and Marriage is the third book in the Love’s Infestation Series.

Jeffery Ward: The author deftly weaves a few sub-plots in between the “big one” which is enticingly doled out to the reader little-by-little. There is also great humor as the “mice” theme turns up throughout the entire book, much to the delight of Noelle's boys but at her expense of her nerves.
