About the Book
Book: Love in Disguise
Author: Penny Zeller
Genre: Christian Historical Romance
Release date: February 22, 2022
Who knew concealing one’s true identity could be so disastrous?
Who knew asserting one’s independence would cause such embarrassment? If only Almira “Emilie” Crawford Wheeler hadn’t insisted upon carrying her own stack of parcels, she wouldn’t have landed in an unladylike heap on the boardwalk. And what about the half-truth she told the handsome stranger who came to her aid? The stranger she never expected to see again?
Thad Alexander Evanson should have been paying closer attention to the boardwalk, rather than the newfangled automobile motoring down the street. Had he been more astute, a collision with the beautiful parcel-laden stranger might never have happened. And if it never had happened, he wouldn’t have told a partial-truth he figured wouldn’t matter.
Before long, Emilie and Thad are arranging to meet for a noonday meal each weekend in Missoula under the guise of different names. But what happens when their true identities are revealed? When half-truths are exposed? Could God have a plan even in the midst of a tangled web of lies?

Set in 1911, Love in Disguise chronicles the tale of two neighbors who believe they dislike each other. Emilie Wheeler, a widow, loves her staff, gardening, orphans, and automobiles. Thad Alexander Evanson, a successful rancher, loves God. The two meet when Thad accidentally runs into Emilie and sets out to replace a hat that accidentally meets its demise as a result of the accident.
As the two continue to meet, both tell half-truths because they desire to find someone who loves them for themselves rather than for their fortunes. From a wonderful set of elderly staff members to a crotchety, drunk ranch hand, to Emilie’s parents, and to a group of orphans, the characters in this story help bring the plot to life.
I have to say I loved the pace at which this story moves. The part God and faith play in this story meant a lot to me. For that God ordains to bring together, nothing can put asunder – including an annoying ex-fiancee and a pompous, arrogant would-be suitor.
So if you enjoy books set in the past with a faith-filled message, check out this book for yourself.
I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Penny
In Love in Disguise, the two main characters, Emilie and Thad, are both fond of pie a la mode. It plays a prominent part in the book, especially during Emilie and Thad’s courtship. My inspiration behind the dessert? My aunt’s famous, old-fashioned pie a la mode recipe, which is a family favorite.
