District Judge Katie McKinley takes her job very seriously. Serving God in a position that brings awesome responsibility and, sometimes, great sacrifice is never easy. Neither is raising twin twelve-year-old boys without a father. When she is forced to make a ruling against an old flame, her life is turned upside down.
Graham Bishop has had feelings for Katie since they were in grade school together. So when someone puts a target on her back, and he's placed at the top of the suspect list, he's determined to prove to Katie and the police they're after the wrong guy.
Katie wants to believe Graham would never hurt her but with all the evidence pointing to him it's obvious someone is either framing him or he isn't the man she thought he was. Trusting her instincts could prove fatal, but if she doesn't she will lose her chance at happiness again.

This is the second book I've listened to by this author and I'm now positive it won't be my last. 😉. Anne Patrick has a wonderful way of balancing an intricate story with just enough Christian values to feel genuine and not forced.
This book is a delightful mix of romance with bits of mystery and suspense. The characters are believable and are not portrayed as perfect yet it shows how everything happens in God's timing. It's a story that is sad, sweet, inspirational, and uplifting.
The narrator does a wonderful job with A.P's books. Her reading truly complimented the story.
Although I would have used a credit for this... I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.
The team of Anne Patrick and Leonor A. Woodworth did it again! Ms. Patrick writes another romance novel with Christian values, showing that God still answers prayers in His own way and in His own time. Her characters are real and well rounded, getting the reader involved in their lives. As narrator, Ms. Woodworth does an amazing job, giving the reader all of the emotions of the characters. I look forward to more from both of them.
Really good, entertaining, interesting and enjoyable Christian romantic mystery. Definitely worth your time.
A clean second chance at love story.
Katie and Graham were both great characters. The story has the perfect mixture of mystery, suspense, romance, family a HEA and faith.
Leonor A. Woodworth does a really good job with the narration. Great character voices. Clearly spoken. Pleasant voice. She was able to convey all of the emotions of the characters. Her narration pulled you right into the story and brought it to life.

Judge Katie McKinley takes her responsibilities very seriously. Her husband was killed just weeks before he was scheduled to retire from the military, and she and her twin boys are still grieving. She has also recently lost her father--a one-two punch that has hit her hard. As a judge, she's conscientious and honest, but no judge can serve for long without making enemies. Now one of those enemies is trying to kill her.
Katie's childhood friend, Graham, completely lost his temper when Judge McKinley ruled against him, a ruling that caused him and his mother to lose their family farm. Could he be mad enough about that to want her dead?
This is a wonderful mixture of mystery, suspense, and romance. I'm definitely going to listen again.

For me this book had it all. Romance, suspense, mystery without swearing and explicit sex scenes. The inclusion of faith was also an element that I liked. Narrator did an outstanding performance. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
Anne Patrick has the right balance of romance and suspense.
Developing the characters of her story quickly she pulls us into the lives of Katie and Graham.
I like that this story brings the reader full circle. An old flame rekindled, lives threatened and all with a happy ending.
Katie, a district court judge follows the law but is filled with compassion. Her decisions are made to the letter of the law even when she doesn't like them. Putting God first is of moral importance to Katie even when she falls in love with Graham.
Leonor A Woolworth has a very soothing voice that is easy to listen to. I appreciate that she tries to distinguish the voices of each character making the story easier to follow.
I will definitely be listening to this story again.

I will begin by stating I love Anne Patrick. I have listened to quite a few of her books, and they always engage me and keep me interested. This one quickly became one of my favorites. I love second chances, and Katie with Graham was perfect. Katie and Graham grew up together, were best friends and were always in love...though never expressing their feelings. Katie dated other people, resulting in a terrible car crash that changed her life. Both Katie and Graham married other people, both of their spouses dying at young ages. When they both came back home, they were forced together, first in court where Katie was the judge, and then sometime later by mutual friends. Graham helped her work through losing her marine husband, loved her twin sons and protected her from the evil that was still lurking around her. The suspense of the whodunnit was definitely worth the listen.
As always, Leonor A Woodworth delivers the most amazing performance. I love her narrations. She can be calming, emotional and crazy all within minutes of each other. I also love that you can tell which character is speaking. Her voices are distinct. This is a must listen!

I liked the story ok and all of the main characters were well rounded. There were a couple of things in the story that didn't seem plausible, and that made it not a great book, just a good book. For one thing, the main character is a widow of a marine who's deployed for most of their marriage. The military doesn't work like that. Soldiers aren't gone almost all the time for years and years. So every time that was eluded to as a reason for his family's behavior, it just seemed that the author used that as a convenient explanation. It's probably just me. If I wasn't a military spouse, I wouldn't know or care. I just got hung up on it. The narrator was excellent.
