From The Vault

For the Love of Books
Heartsong Presents #838

Callie Brandt thinks she's destined to be her town's next spinster librarian. But a gorgeous newcomer is hiding a secret, and Callie aims to find it out. Lane Hutchins has been living a double life for years, and nothing bad has ever come of it. Until now. In tiny Ft. Lob, Wyoming, he unexpectedly falls in love with Callie Brandt.

Key verse: “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13 KJV.

Then his mind drifted to the girl with the curly dark hair who had checked out his books. She certainly asked a lot of questions. But she had a pretty smile, and he liked the way her mouth moved when she talked. She might be attractive if she didn’t wear those thick glasses that magnified her eyes.

One of the old men had called her Callie. Callie Brandt. Pretty name. Lane sighed, thinking of the lonely life he led. It was nice to have someone take an interest in him for a change. Maybe he would spend more time at the library. . . .

But no, he should avoid Callie Brandt and her questions. He planned to stay only three months in Ft. Lob, gathering information, and then he would move on.

Hopefully, no one would guess who he really was.

Question of the Day: Have you ever met someone who surprised you with some hidden personality trait or some type of secret after you got to know them?


  1. Over the years I've met quite a few people who have surprised me with their personality traits after I came to know them better! One in particular was a neighbor we had after my husband and I were married. There was a young man next door (we lived in a small apartment) who seemed very serious and shy (almost unfriendly). One January morning I went out early to scrape the ice off my windshield, and suddenly I realized our neighbor was approaching me. He helped me scrape off the ice, and acted like a real comedian, LOL! After that I saw him in an entirely different light, and really enjoyed having him as a neighbor. ~ Blessings, Patti Jo

  2. People can really have different personalities than we at first think. Thanks for sharing your experience, Patti Jo!
