Spires of Stone by Annette Lyon. Published by Covenant Communications, Inc.

Bethany Hansen can't stand the sight of Benjamin Adams. His very presence completely irritates her, and vice-versa. So, when Hannah takes an interest in Ben's brother, Claude, Bethany sees much more of Ben than she wants to. But Philip, the third brother, also has an interest in Hannah. Things get complicated in this historical romance - set amidst the building of the Salt Lake Temple.

This was my very favorite book by Annette Lyon - and I think that I've read everything that she has written! I couldn't put it down. I thought the relationships between brothers and sisters were realistic and compelling. The social interactions between characters were interesting and fun. It was wonderfully addictive and I couldn't wait to see how it ended. There was one loose end that I would have liked to see wrapped up - but I guess it didn't really matter to the story. This is a great example of a light hearted romantic story, well worth the price.

    I also loved this book--Lyon won the Best in State award for fiction 06 with her book on the St. George temple book and I hope she can win two years in a row because this one definitely deserves the acclaim. Now I'll have to figure out what the loose end was . . .
