I usually enjoy light Christian romances, but this one just kind of droned on for me. Maybe because I didn't read the first two in this series, but I felt a bit lost and confused at times as to why April had spent her life hiding "secrets", and even the whole premise of her "forgiving" Sheriff Kurt Mulldoon for wanting to keep their relationship a secret was a bit forced and ridiculous. On the other hand, Kurt apparently doesn't want any ties to anyone because of what happened to his wife, which ...more

I used to think I liked serial paperback romances ... and then I read a poorly written one.

There is an interesting premise in this novel if you are a sucker for romance, like I am; but the dialog was confusing at times, the plot seemed forced, and the outcome was too predictable. I finished the book by skimming just because I am a compulsive "finisher."

I loved the sass between these two main characters. Lots of fun. A little preachy, but it worked. I would like to have seen a little more character development for the male lead, but honestly, I loved him from chapter one. This book was a nice surprise.

This book was okay. There were several eye-rolling moments, and Mrs. Cora was a little off. It wasn't memorable, but I didn't have to force myself to keep reading it.

Redundant and boring. The plot tries really hard to be deep, but there's SO much hype and beating around the bush that it's just anti-climactic.

-This is a good story. Very interesting, as it is about a person getting away from meddling townspeople.

Only read it once years ago, don't remember it too much but I remember it being a sweet book.
