What I thought . . .
I was drawn in from the first few pages. I couldn't put it down. This was a very well written great story of romance family and faith. The story line was great. The author did a wonderful job of weaving together a romance along with a little real life struggles all interwoven into a story full of grace and forgiveness.
I enjoyed the characters. I felt like they were all fully developed.
I look forward to the next installment in the series. I always look forward to reading the stories of a sub-character in a book.
The main characters Colt and Angelina are both well developed. Colt a is strong and dependable. Angelina is
'spit fire'. Her character is cute, strong and opinionated.
Angelina doesn't mind telling everyone what she is thinking and manages to help not only Colt but his father as well come to a closer relationship with God.
Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was difficult to 'put down' I would recommend it.
My rating is 5 stars . . .
I received a complimentary copy from Book Look and Multnomah
