Milk Money by Cecelia Dowdy

This is the 2nd book I have read by Dowdy and once again she has produced a story that entertains and challenges her reader. Emily Cooper is working day and night to keep her family's farm going after her father's death, so she is less than thrilled when Franklin Reese shows up and announces he is a CPA there to audit the business.

Over time Franklin finds himself drawn to Emily, but what he discovers as he audits the farm concerns him.... and his lack of faith and addiction to alcohol add to the turmoil.

Once again, Dowdy has tackled a subject not often seen in romance novels.... especially Christian romance. Often writers try to deal with only neat and tidy lives that are a bit off track. But here Dowdy has taken a dive straight into the issue of addiction. I also love that she doesn't sugar coat it the struggle to be free or even to remain free from its hold.

Excellent work as always!
