Although not as suspenseful as The Reluctant Outlaw, I think that I enjoyed this book even more. I liked Josh and Kate and seeing their personal struggles. I liked the beautiful descriptions of Gatlinburg and meeting all of Josh's family.
Amazing. I never wanted to put it down. I felt I was right there with the characters and feeling what they feel.

Not as good as it's predecessor, still a nice story with main characters trying to put their past behind them.
Not a bad story, but I had some serious misgivings about the heroine's need for forgiveness. I wanted a much more definitive message that she had NOTHING to be ashamed of.
This is a sweet, clean romance. Kate Morgan travels from New York City to Tennessee to inform her sister's fiance that she is already wed to someone else. Of course, love blossoms between Kate and Josh, the jilted fiance. I liked that Kate had made mistakes, errors of judgement in her past. She felt unworthy of a good, upright man.

Still waiting for my Josh P.S please hurry up if you can! xxx
I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

This was my first Harlequin and pure romance novel. It was okay... A little too instant love for me, but I did finish it in two days.

I did like that both people had issues and eventually fall in love because I'm cheesy like that, but this isn't a story I would've picked out myself. 2.5 to 3 stars.

Maybe 3.5, taking into account the genre. It's probably one I'll pick up again on an afternoon when I don't have another book.
Another wonderful book from Ms. Kirst. Love these characters and the way they pull you into their stories.
Really cute story - engaging characters I really cared about. Well written and enjoyable read.
I'm pretty sure I liked this book, but it's been a while. I can't remember it exactly.
