Shopkeeper for women's colony in Texas, Tori Adams is working on expanding her business to bring in more income for the ladies whose goods she is selling. This means going against her preferences and accepting the help of a man--Ben Porter--to drive her freight from farm to farm. Ben knows when a critter--be it animal or human--has been abused, and brave, beautiful Tori shows all the signs. Will this new partnership be the opportunity he has been looking for to win her heart?
"Worth the Wait" has Witemeyer's characteristic blend of humor and heart, and if anything, they're more intensified in this short novella. There were some pretty funny moments involving a little boy and appropriate terminology regarding bodily functions. For a novella, it addresses some pretty intense subjects, but at the same time, there's some intense healing happening too. While I always prefer the longer books, this still makes a nice interlude between novels--don't have to wait as long for the next book, and it provides another fun opportunity to learn more about the ladies of Harper's Station!
