When Maisie Kentworth breaks into an abandoned mine and discovers a crystal cave, it changes everything for her and the owner of the mine, Boone Bragg.
Maisie and Boone have problems of their own so they agreed to a business marriage that had mutual benefits.
Proposing Mischief was a fun read. It was clear from the beginning that Maisie didn’t fit into Boone’s world, and vice versa, but they needed each other. Boone was a stabilizing influence on Maisie and she brought light and joy into his world. It was a pleasure watching this couple learn about each other, and themselves, as they forged a partnership and a marriage.
Maisie’s family was unconventional and you never knew what kind of hijinks they’d be up to which made for some laugh-out-loud funny moments.
Readers will be reminded that appearances aren’t everything. The woman who stuck out and didn’t fit into to the neat society was loyal, kind, and loving; the cave hidden beneath the surface contained a miracle that showcased God’s glory; while those who appeared to be beautiful on the surface were greedy and unkind.
It’s important for us to use discernment and not get fooled by what appears to be genuine but is only fool’s gold.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.

About Proposing Mischief (The Joplin Chronicles #2)
Maisie Kentworth is stuck on the ranch. Having fallen in love with the wrong guy, she can’t risk inflaming things between her former beau and her protective family. Left to rue her mistakes, she keeps busy exploring the idle mine at the edge of their property.
Boone Bragg is also stuck. With his parents on vacation, the management of Bragg Mining falls on him, and one of his advisors wants him as a son-in-law. One wrong move, and Boone will end up either offending an associate or getting married to a woman he can’t endure.
While closing up a spent mine, Boone gets two surprises. One is an untamed farm girl who’s trespassing with a pickax, and the other is the amazing crystal cavern that she’s discovered. Suddenly Boone sees a way to overhaul the family business. With part of the cavern on Kentworth land, Boone makes Maisie a proposal that he hopes will solve all of their problems. Instead it throws Joplin into chaos.
