Review of COURTING CALLA by Hallee Bridgeman

Calla is a hard-working file clerk for whom everything seems to be going wrong. Her beloved father has died, her wicked stepmother has run up debt using Calla’s name, her car has just quit on her. Then she meets Ian, one of the executives at the Dixon Contracting firm where she clerks. Due to a mixup, she ends up sending him flowers, and the romance begins. Neither Calla nor Ian totally trusts themselves to love someone else, so their falling in love is slow and easy. My favorite scene was Thanksgiving dinner with Annabelle, Ian’s grandmother. I also loved that they went on missions trips for holidays instead of buying a lot of gifts or other traditions that are normally followed. It is in Haiti that Calla really finds herself and a part of her life that she knows she wants. Without giving away what happens, there is a lot of conflict between the two, and it looks a lot like they may not be able to overcome it. This was a really delightful, short novel!
