She's sworn off marriage.
Twice widowed, Kate Archer believes she's better off alone. She's not sure she could survive the heartache of losing another husband. Instead of romance, she pours herself into a project close to her heart: establishing a foundation to meet the needs of military widows - just like the grief-stricken woman she was 20 years ago when her husband was killed by friendly fire.
He's still running from the past.
Nicolas Black has spent the past 20 years of his life - his entire Air Force career - trying to atone for the mistake that cost his best friend his life. Now he's a police detective in Garfield, Oklahoma, but the guilt remains. When he learns of Kate's new business endeavor, he wants to help. But being near the vibrant widow pushes all his buttons and makes him long for the things he's never allowed himself to have - the home and family his buddy never had a chance to enjoy.
As Kate and Nicolas spend time together, a relationship neither expected quickly blossoms. But both remain oblivious to the tragic intersection that hides in their past.

I can't say enough about Sharon Srock's books. Written from a Christian perspective, her books are about strong, independent women. Kate is no exception. Twice widowed, Kate isn't looking for love anymore. She wants to use her inheritance money to build a foundation to meet the needs of military widows. When Nicolas, a retired Air Force man, hears about this foundation, he wants to be a part of it. With a few little twists and turns, Kate and Nicolas find that they both hold a part of each other's past and future. Laura Jennings does a beautiful job narrating this book, giving each character their own voice.
Wouldn't this make a great movie?
I was given this audio book by the author, narrator, or publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
This story grabbed my attention right from the start. It was well written and the characters were fully developed. I felt like I was in the story and was watching it as it developed. I loved that it was a continuation of the Valley View series and I knew the characters. The narration was well modulated and pleasant to listen to as I worked. All in all, I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a good, clean story.
