After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore---much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant's fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.
The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there's healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what's needed to finally guide him home. . . .
Very rarely do I read a romance novel, but this one sounded worth reading and I must have been in the right mood for one when I requested it.
I did actually enjoy the book. The author came up with some great characters who definitely were not perfect. The plot was good, and there was a great theme/message of forgiving people throughout the book, as both of the main characters had to forgive a parent for ways they had hurt them.
Carol Post is a new author to me, and I like her style. A friend said she normally writes suspense novels, which is my favorite genre', so I will definitely have to check her other books out. If she can do this well on a romance novel that I enjoyed it so much, I am sure I 'll like her suspense novels.
The ending, as with any romance novel, was a bit predictable, but the getting there was not.
Anyone who enjoys a good clean Christian romance will enjoy this.
This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
About the author:
From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post's résumé reads as if she hasn't yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children's publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers' Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn't writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping---almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
