A winter reunion for the orphans brings romance for Neville Cross in Book 4 of Mimi Matthews' USA Today bestselling Parish Orphans of Devon series.

She Needed to be Seen...

As a lady's companion, Clara Hartwright never receives much attention from anyone. And that's precisely how she likes it. With a stormy past, and an unconventional plan for her future, it's far safer to remain invisible. But when her new employer is invited to a month-long holiday at a remote coastal abbey, Clara discovers that she may not be as invisible as she'd hoped. At least, not as far as one gentleman is concerned.

He Wanted to be Heard...

Neville Cross has always been more comfortable with animals than people. An accident in his youth has left him with a brain injury that affects his speech. Forming the words to speak to his childhood friends is difficult enough. Finding the right things to say to a lovely young lady's companion seems downright impossible. But Miss Hartwright is no ordinary companion. In fact, there may not be anything ordinary about her at all.

During a bleak Devon winter, two sensitive souls forge an unexpected friendship. But when Clara needs him most, will Neville find the courage to face his fears? Or is saying goodbye to her the most heroic thing he can do?

I love cookies. Molasses/ginger snaps cookies are favorites.
An all time favorite I haven't made in a long time are "The
Worlds Best Cookie." They were called such by a friend's
mom who made them for us when I was visiting during
college (over 5 decades ago) and they are quite good. They
are large cookies that are a combination of chocolate chip
and oatmeal cookies. With raisins, walnuts, chocolate
chips, and oatmeal addd to the dough, they are a filling and
delicious snack.
I usually don't worry about how long cookies will keep,
because they are gone within a few days. I do keep them in
an airtight container and I would think they would freeze
pretty well.

My favorite cookie to make is a cut out sugar cookie. I
remember learning how to tint frosting and add doo-dads to
the rolled out cookies after baking with grandma.
