Anna: Finds herself in Abilene without money, or a place to go. Lucy hires Anna to clean her "boarding house," which Anna discovers later is not what it seems. She has only one other option when Lucy offers her a job working upstairs - accepting Billy's offer.
Billy: Graduated from a seminary, but the church won't hire a single minister. He needs a wife, and he needs one quickly. He and Anna strike up an agreement. But - can they live within its confines?
Clean and sweet Christian romance. All books in the Shadow series can be listened to as standalone. They revisit previous characters, but each story is different.
This is about Miles brother Billy and Anna his wife and how they get to know each other and get over their problems.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
A most enjoyable story with a very interesting theme about a two people who have found religion and how, when it is understood and applied correctly, they are able to live their lives well according to the teachings.
Other characters have been brought into this story from other stories in this series and they all play a good supporting role and help this new couple.
As usual, a very interesting and enjoyable story which has been nicely narrated by Jeff Moon and I am happy to recommend it.
The audiobook version was provided by the author at no cost and this is my honest and unbiased review.

This classic marriage of convenience proves that even happy endings can have a rocky and interesting journey! Anna is homeless and Billy is wifeless. They need each other in their situations in life. What they do not count on is that love has a way of getting in the middle of their best laid plans of just helping each other out.
Barbara Goss continues her Shadow series with Billy's story. It was a great story and Jeff Moon did a wonderful job telling her story!
Started as a marriage of convenience Billy needs a wife so that he could get the job as a preacher. Anna needs someone to take care of her. This is a great series.
It helps, in life, to be able to learn. To absorb others' actions, manners, and speech patterns and be able to mimic them. To be able to assess a situation from more than one angle, and to be sufficiently flexible to adapt to changes. Here we are introduced to potentially the most illogical of possible arranged marriages, and these same qualities, shared by BOTH parties, create the necessary magic for this HEA--with all of Ms Goss' usual flair for intricate plot placed in realistic historic setting and as beautifully narrated by Jeff Moon. Knowing the other players from previous tales in the series is a bonus for you but unnecessary for enjoyment as this story does stand alone.
Another Sweet Romance written by Barbara Goss.
An unusual agreement between Billy and Anna allows them to both get something they want. But will they stick to their agreement?
Great story about Billy and Anna, narrative was enjoyable and I did find that some of the previous male characters did come across much older men than they really are.
Other then that I enjoyed it very much, I’m a big fan of Ms Barb Goss’s work
Billy showed up briefly in a previous Shadow book and I was excited to hear this story. After returning from seminary, Billy realizes that getting a job as a pastor as an unmarried man might be a bit tough. His solution was to find a sweet and innocent girl not known at the church and marry her, but to keep that marriage in name only. Anna was new to town, came from a rough background and was happy to take Billy up on his offer since it would keep her from selling her charms at the "boarding house" for ladies. Except can they keep their relationship simply a marriage of convenience?
Great listen as Billy and Anna figure out exactly what they want from life and their relationship. I enjoyed the clean romance and the Christian theme through the story.
Highly recommended listen!
Shadow of Love by Barbara Goss was a great read. The Shadow series is another must read by Barbara Goss. Anna is iin Abile e with no where to go and finds herself at what she thought was a boarding house. Billy is looking for a wife as the church won't hire him without being married. This is a great read that I loved reading.
This is a story of Anna and Billy
Billy was a minister and was wanting a church. They wouldn't hire someone without a wife. So he searched for a wife in name only. Well God had other plans. This was a sweet story of love and faith. I was given a copy for an honest review. I highly recommend this story..
