    Colin Hancock is giving his second chance his best shot. At 28, he's focused only on walking a straight line - getting his teaching degree, working out at the gym religiously, and avoiding all the places and people that proved so destructive in his earlier life. The last thing he's looking for is a serious relationship. But when Maria Sanchez crosses paths with him on a rainswept night in North Carolina, his plans are upended in a way that will rattle the foundations of his carefully structured life.

    She'll risk anything to save her child…even the truth. It's taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She's created the perfect life - a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and a man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

    Would you listen to The Last Bride again? Why?

    probably not, I like it but too much repartition


    What other book might you compare The Last Bride to and why?

    I really cannot compare it to other Beverly Lewis book as this was much slower and just did not have the punch for me.


    What does Christina Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She does a very good job but the wording is always the same so it is hard to explain, read it for yourself and see what you think


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes,, when she gives birth to a baby fathered by Marcus.

    A slow story
    , but perhaps that is just my feeling

    Years ago, the day before Ellie moved from Georgia to California, she and her best friend, Nolan, sat beneath the Spanish moss of an ancient oak tree where they wrote letters to each other, and sealed them in a rusty old metal box. The plan was to return 11 years later and read them. But now, as that date arrives, much has changed. Ellie, bereft of the faith she grew up with, is a single mom living in a tired apartment trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she watches television to catch a glimpse of her old friend - Nolan, now an NBA star, whose terrible personal tragedies fueled his faith and athletic drive in equal measure.
