A Willow Valley Rivalry
This new Historical Romance series is set in the 1800s. Each story has a mystery to solve
and each book is family friendly. I have released a new book in this series, which takes place
in 1839 in the United States. This was a time of turmoil for many, especially for those who
supported the abolitionist movement.
In A Pleasant Rivalry, Angelica Davis is surprised when she finds out that an old school chum
has returned to Willow Valley to take over his grandfather’s business. Since she writes
articles for the Chronicle and Simon Morgan owns the Willow Valley News, they just
happen to be rivals. The competition is on. Who will be the first to discover the identity of
the jewel thief or the arsonist? Will it be Angelica or Simon? Gradually the feelings she once
had for him return as they both search for the same stories. To her surprise, Angelica
realizes she is losing her heart to her rival.
“I loved this book! It was a great historical read and full of surprises. I totally didn't expect
what happened… to happen. The time period was an interesting one and I love how the
author intertwines historical events into the story. It was a new and refreshing tale.” –Sunnie
You will learn about the Trail of Tears, the abolitionist movement that began in Illinois, the
refugees that were kicked out of Missouri, and you will fall in love all over again as you see
two classmates bond in a pleasant rivalry.
It has been thirteen years since Angelica saw her classmate. He left at the age of seventeen to
join the Navy. Now he’s back to run his grandfather’s newspaper business. With Simon
running the Willow Valley News and Angelica writing articles for the Chronicle, the
competition is on. Who will get the story first? Angelica or her rival?
“Watching the rivalry between these two will have you on the edge of your seat, waiting to
see what happens next. I would give this book a higher rating than a five star review if I
could. Linda Weaver Clarke is an amazing author.” – Debbie Jamieson, Reviewer
Since this is book three in the series, you will meet a few of those from previous stories. You
will see Nicholas and Felicity from book one and Emmeline and Lucas from book two. They
were beloved characters that snuck back into this story and are even more enchanting. They
add a bit of spice to this story.
The first book in the Willow Valley series is One Last Dance. Felicity Brooks is an artist but
her career is cut short when her father passes away. When Felicity meets their new neighbor,
a fine-looking bachelor, she soon discovers that he is hiding his true identity. Nicholas
Adams is on a quest. But that is not all. When she finds out that someone is after a valuable
heirloom…a precious treasure that her father had discovered in his attic, her life takes a new
“One Last Dance is a historical romance with a mystery to add to the tale. Felicity has always
been a strong and independent woman. Amongst mystery, loss, paintings, and a career, she is
going to have to decide if love has a place in her heart.” --Author Anna Del C Dye
The second book in the Willow Valley series is Angel’s Serenade. Emmeline Scott is raising her
sister’s two children and is surprised when she finds out the new doctor in town is helping
her nephew adapt to his surroundings. It is not easy to be uprooted and have to start a new
life. As Emmeline gets to know the charming doctor, Lucas Golden, they become intrigued
by her neighbor’s mysterious behavior. Will they discover his secret? And who is the leader
of the River Pirates, who is causing so much havoc?
“Clarke has created a sweet romance that will warm the heart, and it’s wrapped up in
fascinating yesteryear details of courting, medical practice and river pirates. I highly
recommend the book to those who enjoy sweet romance with a bit of mystery.” –Author
