Publisher's Summary

The detective's mother has gone missing. Her family is the prime suspect in her disappearance....

After 10 years away, Sofia Wise returns home to mourn the loss of her grandmother, and she’s desperate to reconnect with her family.

When a dark, devastatingly handsome stranger shows up on her family’s doorstep, Sofia takes one look and is tempted to make her visit permanent. The problem is, the town’s detective is suspicious of her entire family, and it might take some convincing to prove that she’s more interested in the man himself than in the complex case at hand.

Trevor Freeman is a hardworking detective for the town of Eron. When his mom disappears, he blames the Wise family and will stop at nothing until they are brought to justice - that is, until Sofia Wise blows into town. The mysterious, beautiful member of the notorious Wise clan complicates everything, distracting him from his investigation and threatening to steal his heart.

Despite their differences in financial and social status and the animosity between her family and him, there is an undeniable chemistry between them that has no logistics.

As their attraction for each other escalates, the relationship becomes more complex than any of Trevor’s investigations thus far. Will they ever be able to trust each other? Or will their differences hinder their chance at love?

Small town Christian romance

This is the second book I have read by this author and the first book in this series. It is a sweet Christian romance. The book had a good plot and progressed nicely. The main characters were real and down to earth.
The narrator did a good job.

Complex

I liked this "star crossed" love story. Fortunately, it didn't end in death. There was just enough family issues to cause questions about the relationship but not enough to make me roll my eyes. I want to read or listen to more books by Rose Fresquez. Andy Garcia-Ruse did a good job as narrator.

Left me wanting...

Sofia and Trevor's brand-new relationship is complicated by the fact that Trevor suspects her family of having killed his mother. So, how can he learn to trust that she's not just a pawn of her family?

Sofia has her own trust issues she's trying to overcome, primarily where her family is concerned.

While it seems like Sofia and Trevor may have been made for each other, there are obstacles in their way they need to overcome, some of which are self-imposed.

The challenge is... The reader is well-aware of the obstacles, but they're not privy to how they're actually resolved, since the solution takes place "off camera" for lack of a better phrase.

SPOILER ALERT!
Given that Trevor's whole obsessions with finding his mother is crucial to the plot of the story, her discovery is never fully explained. Had she changed her name? Who was the man she was seen with? (We only know it's not who we thought it was.) Had Rex known all along what had happened? And how had Trevor's friend found her? None of that is explained to us. Yet his mother's disappearance is why he's so messed up. So, it's very dissatisfying.

But then it's made worse by the fact that Trevor recognizes the need to apologize to Sofia's family for suspecting and harassing them all these years, and we're led to believe that he does that. But it's all done behind the scenes. We're not privy to what was said or how it was received. It's a crucial scene in building the forgiveness needed for him to move ahead with Sofia, yet it's hidden from us.

Which makes other things, like the Wise's presence at the fundraiser, seem random. We don't know if they're there because of the apology or for some other reason.

All in all, the book felt incomplete. While the love interests overcame the obstacles in their way, we don't get to see that happen. Thankfully, I've listened to the books out of order, having heard "Choices" first, which I did like. So I'm looking forward to listening to the third book in the series.

barriers to overcome

Sofia and Trevor have a connection that isn't really great and they a few differences. Will they let these things keep them apart? Loved his dad and sister. Her family well UGH. There is a mystery Trevor is trying to solve but it might cause a rift between him ad Sofia. This book really showed how forgiveness is so hard but so freeing.

Lovely small town story!

There is nothing cozier than snuggling up on the couch on a dark dreary cold rainy day and listening to this sweet book. The story was so lovely, the religious spark in rounded it out into perfection. Great as a stand alone novel!

Perfect title

This story covers so many aspects of life and forgiveness which makes the title perfect for this book. No life is simple and for the two main characters, their lives are no different. The author manages to cover relationships, (both new, old, and broken) with repentance, forgiveness, and understanding all being a part of this well done story.
The reader had a good pace, well done voices for both male and female, and easily kept the listener engaged in the story.

a beautiful redemption story

So I'm reading this series out of order but I'm still enjoying them :) I loved Complex and the story of Sofia Wise and Trevor Freeman. Goodness did these two had issues of their past to work through! But what a beautiful redemption story and examples of God's grace and love did they ended up proving to be. 😊 While I always enjoy the romance aspect of a book (and this one was a sweet one), this time what truly spoke to me was the message of God's mercy and forgiveness, and how we have to bestow it upon others since we've already been forgiven so much! Truly, thank you to the author for penning such a beautiful story. 💖

As for the narrator, she was fantastic (just as she was in Choices) with both male and female voices 🙌 ; of course, the nuances and tones were just on point and she did a great job bringing the whole cast of characters (even the ones with accents, such as Enrique, I think) to life. The only thing I think could be better was the last chapter, since it seemed there were fragments of a couple of sentences that were repeated, but besides that, it was pretty perfect to me ;)

Overall, a fantastic audiobook with a truly wonderful story that I'd recommend to all fans of the author or simply of the Christian Fiction genre. ~ 5 stars

Sweet Christian romance

This is a sweet Christian romance. I wasn’t sure if it was the way the story was written or the narrator (I’m leaning towards the narrator as I’ve listened to other books by this author) but I found it hard to follow the story unless I was totally focused on the story.
I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review
