Maybe more like, half a star, if that.
Ugg, I had hopes but, seriously, the main characters had zero chemistry, the christian part was laid on so thick that there was barely any real story, way to much mention of all the 'good county cooking' she was doing, and then so many other random storylines pop up in it that it just depletes the story, what there was of it, even more.

I really enjoyed this book for the most part. Meg's struggle to put her failed marriage behind her and trust Jared was touching and sympathetic. The whole "our children are actually twins so we should get married" plot didn't seem too far-fetched given that the couple had known each other for years, been friends in high school, and secretly had feelings for each other. The interactions with the kids were wonderful, and I particularly liked Jared's grandmother as another secondary character.

I loved the idea of this book. It was pretty well paced, and interested me quite easily. However, I feel like much of the heroine's problem was her excuses, and she potentially could have damaged her relationship forever with Jared. I also think that when the time finally did come, it was just too rushed. She just basically changed her entire viewpoint all at once, and did things she never otherwise would have done. A miracle 180 in all of a few hours. She didn't budge an inch any other time. I ...more

I have read ALMOST all of Jillian's books, but don't recall reading this one...I have read a lot/most of the books in 'The Tiny Blessings series', but don't recall raeding Meg and Jared's story. Just learning about them through the other 'Tiny Blessings' books. After they were alraedy a HAPPILY MARRIED couple. I LOVE Jillian's books, and this one was no exception. (LOVED IT!) I LOVED this 'Tiny Blessings' tale. Old High School nemisis, Jared Kierney and Meg Talbot both discover they've adopted i ...more

This was a sweet little book. I think the twins were my favourite . . . I work with little ones of that age in my church's nursery, and thought that Luke and Chance were adorable. That's not to say that I didn't like Meg and Jared. I did think their storyline moved into 'bliss' a little too quickly though. But, that's neither here nor there I suppose.
I wasn't necessarily planning on reading the rest of this series, but they've gone and thrown a mystery at me, and I am just too darn curious so I

Another!!!! Blah LI marriage of convenience because twins are adopted to different parents. Way overdone plot device.

Jillian Hart has created a wonderful story with characters that you want to know in real life. She is one of the very best at making the emotions of her main characters very upfront and vibrant, whether they are feelings of growing love for one another or almost paralyzing fear because of past experiences. Meg and Jared, and the twins, Luke and Chance, will capture your heart. Now I want to read some of the other books in this series to discover what really happened behind the scenes at the adop ...more

This is another one I thought I hadn't read before, but I had. This time through I felt like the heroine was hiding too much. For as long as she clung to her decision to not get involved, the change happened to abruptly at the end. The constant "ice" references also started to become a little repetitive instead of insightful and smart. I think I would have also liked to see (view spoiler) ...more

I was not expecting to like this book. It seemed too far-fetched but I like Jillian Hart's writing and books where people get married for something other than love but fall in love always intrigue me.

I enjoyed this book. It is far-fetched but the character development is strong enough that the story works in spite of this.

Jillian hits the mark again with another excellent read.

Meg and Jared's story keeps you wanting them to find happiness to the very end.

It truly is often the case of losing someone or almost losing them that you realize how much you love them.

This is the first in the series. I find myself wishing to be in this little town and just have wonderful friends like in these books and their finding of christ and there church is what I would love for me and my family.
