Publisher's Summary

She would sacrifice anything for those she loved....

Annie Blake put her life on hold to care for her mother when she was diagnosed with cancer. She didn't consider it a sacrifice as much as a labor of love. But then she learns that her father has done something completely out of character, not to mention criminal, in a misguided attempt to save the life of his wife. Annie realizes she will have to give up more than just a job and an apartment this time. To save him from going to prison, she will have to give up her freedom.

His life was going according to plan - until the day she showed up....

The last thing Ian McCann expected was the bombshell the daughter of an employee dropped in his lap at the start of the three-day weekend. She needed help, and plenty of it. She also needed it immediately, and hoped he would be able to help. He knew that he could, he just wasn't sure he was prepared to give what it would require to fix everything.

Not for me

Okay, when I decided to listen to this I did not realize it was Christian fiction. I do not agree with a lot of the bible or Christian religion and obviously I am not the target audience for this book, but even if I were, there are a few parts that were an issue. The idea that a woman "belongs" to a man and he is her master is so outdated and misogynistic and I was shocked to see it in the plot and that Annie just agreed with it. Annie seemed like a smart, confident woman and it made me sad that she saw herself as subservient. There is a line about God not listening to prayers of non Christians as much as Christians because they have been "saved" that I really disliked. If someone believes in God and prays but they're not Christian, they're less worthy? I thought the point of Christianity was to love and accept others regardless of if you agree with them? Okay, I could go on but I won't. I will say that I'm glad Annie and Ian fell in love and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow. This book was not for me, but maybe other people will feel differently.
