Publisher's Summary

She came in search of the family she’d always wanted - and found the kind of love she’d never dared imagine.

When Katelyn Loveland’s car veered off a winding Appalachian Mountain road, she thought she was done for. That is until Cooper Robinson, local sheriff’s deputy, came to her rescue. And though Katie narrowly escaped her brush with death, she still fell. Hard.

She wasn’t the only one. But soon Cooper learns that the woman he’s more attracted to than any he’s ever met is his brother’s new girlfriend - and therefore unquestionably off limits. Yet, despite their best efforts, Cooper and Katie can’t seem to avoid running into each other. Or ignore the undeniable chemistry between them.

As they grow closer, Katie shares secrets from her past and the real reason she moved to their small North Carolina town. She also wins over Cooper’s welcoming and bighearted family. But they don’t know that her feelings for Cooper keep growing - all while she’s dating his brother. Soon the stakes of their emotional connection become higher than either could have imagined.

Katie stands to lose the first family she’s ever had, and a scandal could doom Cooper’s campaign for sheriff. Suddenly they find themselves on the edge of another precipice - and they’re forced to make a decision that could change their lives forever.

Great story

I really enjoyed the story. The characters were relatable. But, I barely got through the book because the narration was just like the TikTok lady. It was so difficult to listen to for an entire book.

Loved this book!

I live in Virginia not far from the Appalachian Trail. The love of the characters for God and each flowed through the book. The best thing was the message of forgiveness and mercy. Looking forward to the next title in the series.

Good Series

Sweet series, for sure. I got a bit tired of the frequent praying and asking God for help in every chapter. I am a believer. However, I did get a little weary of the constant theme.

Story had potential, but...

The storyline itself was good, though predictable (think Hallmark Channel). The characters were under-developed and were essentially all the same. The narration would have been better if the narrator didn't even attempt voice changes. At times she did and others she didn't. It kind of messed with the story for me a bit. I do appreciate the faith elements and that it wasn't raunchy at all.
