Nice quick read. Some parts are a little unrealistic.
Just okay for me. Liked the characters and setting of Rosewood, Texas but felt most of the conflict between the hero and heroine was based on a misunderstanding that was kept going by putting off a single, much needed conversation.
This book was an easy read and a good story. I liked most of the characters but felt the conflict between the two main characters was based solely on a continued miscommunication.

such a great inspirational book of god love and family.
