He had his eye on her for years. But she was married. Now she’s not. He’s all in.
Rachel Cameron prefers to lick her wounds and protect her children from gossip and shame in isolation on a small homestead in the Ozark Mountains. But life-long bachelor and ex-Marine Sheriff Garrett Stark has other ideas.
Drawn to Rachel, Garrett wields all the power and charm he can muster to insist she return to town for her safety and that of her children. Exasperation and anger rule on both sides. Rachel balks, but does not anticipate the raft of dizzying emotions stirred by the Garrett’s relentless attention.
The moment Garrett takes her into his arms, Rachel knows she must make a choice: honor the truth and face her fears or live forever as an outsider.
I didn’t know if this was set in a historical or in the present setting.15
This book was funny, sad, scary and just all around entertaining! Love, love, loved it.55
Loved, loved this story....well written ....could feel myself right in the middle of it. If you are a middle age woman who has had a first rough marriage or a not so happy marriage with littles ones....you need to read this it may help you understand there is someone out there for you & your family...in other words “you can find your ever after” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️45
I wasn’t sure at first if I liked either character. Turned out they both were great and I was totally rooting for them long before the end. Real people who develop and grow and admit when they’re wrong. A community that gathers around for support. A relationship that develops without crazy monkey sex every 10 pages... very satisfying read!55
Loved the book - I know people like that! The only thing is the scene in the bakery where Rachel & family ordered kolaches which are a Czech pastry, but only the sweet kind. Savory ones like ham & cheese are not considered kolaches. These pastries made with sausage are called klobasniki. I’m not sure what the ham and cheese ones are called. Anyway, thath’s just FYI. The book is great!55
I enjoyed this book and read it fairly quickly. At first I wasn’t sure about the main characters’ relationship potential but the author developed them well and I became more and more invested as I continued reading. I also enjoyed seeing Rachel rejoin her community. Side note - read the author bio at the end. First paragraph was the best!55
Finally! A soulful understanding of love and wisdom, and the relationship between them. No drawn out sex scenes, thankfully! Wonderful story. Great writing. Bless this author!55
Good story line but the story keep changing point of view at random time. I would have to reread a section on the book so that I could better understand it. One paragraph would be from Rachel’s perspective and the next paragraph would be Garrett’s perspective but other than that it was a great story.45
