Beauty Within
Riley Family Legacy Novellas, Book 1
by Rachel Skatvold

Book Summary

A young widow returns to her hometown in search of a new beginning…
A handsome police officer running from dark shadows in his past…
Together, will this unlikely pair be able to move past their circumstances and discover the Beauty Within God’s plan?


Officer Ryan Hudson watched the young woman’s face blush cherry red when she recognized him. He was just as surprised to see her again but didn’t let on. Instead he remained stone faced and all business. “Good afternoon, Ma’am. I’m Officer Hudson.”
She pushed a few strands of brown hair out of her face and shook his hand. “I’m Katherine Arnold.”
The natural blush on her cheeks brought out the red highlights in her hair. It made her even more beautiful than at their first meeting. He cleared his throat and attempted to concentrate. “I’m assuming you’re this child’s mother? I found her crying over here by the bakery counter.”
She bit her lip and squeezed the little girl’s hand tighter. “Yes, thank you for finding her. I assure you, this will not happen again.” She peered down at her daughter. “Right, Lillian? You’re going to stay with me next time?”
Lillian nuzzled closer to her. “Yes, mommy.”
Katherine nudged her daughter. “Don’t you have something to tell Officer Hudson?
She peeked up at him with a sheepish grin. “Thank you for the cookie, Officer … Handsome.”
Katherine covered her mouth but a giggle still escaped. “Sorry, she has a little trouble with names.”
