That Certain Spark

Posted by



By Cathy Marie Hake | Bethany House Publishers | softcover | 352 pages | $13.99

Cathy Marie Hake spins another tale of boy-meets-girl in That Certain Spark. Taylor Bestman’s choice to become a doctor and her twin’s to become a veterinarian enables them to create a winning team. However, the two are not prepared for the challenges they face in setting up a practice in a small Texas town in the late 19th century.

Prejudiced by Taylor’s lack of adhering to social standards, the locals will do anything in their power to persuade her to leave. However, she remains undaunted as a romance develops between her and the town’s blacksmith.

Although at times the story is hard to believe—such as when Hake recounts a more modern medical procedure than is appropriate for the period—That Certain Spark includes a wide range of sometimes inconsistent yet altogether interesting characters. Hake brings an element of drama into an otherwise basic tale of romance and ultimately provides fans of this genre with a relaxing read.
