** spoiler alert **

I'm very ambivalent about how to rate this book.

Right off, the editing is horrible. The back cover states the hero takes in his BROTHER'S child when its his SISTER'S child. His sister isn't "dying" as also stated, but was killed in a tragic accident. The heroine is Rachel McKaslin yet at one point, she's called Rachel HAWTHORNE.

This is about Rachel McKaslin. She's a waitress/soon-to-be restaurant owner of her family's hometown diner. She's shy and somewhat reserved around men

A nice little book except there wasn't really any conflict until the last few pages and its all solved way too quickly in those last few pages. Almost like the author forgot to have any conflict until those last pages and quickly tacked some on at the end.

Rachel is sure she has fallen love with he perfect man, but Jake is a highly trained Special Forces soldier and doesn't think he needs anybody--only work. He doesn't want to appear weak or expose his heart or be vulnerable by displaying any emotions. He doesn't really believe in true love, either---until he met Rachel. But the question arises, why did he marry her?
Much better story than the preceding novel because the focus was different and not as much repetition.

LI--very unrealistic. Love story to marriage progression too rushed. No reliance on God's lead or concern for circumstances.

As with all Jillian Hart novels, this was a very sweet story. The author's writing style is very lyrical and poetic, without being saccharine. I enjoyed getting to know Rachel more and cheered when she and Jake finally got it right! :)
The only issue I had with this book has nothing to do with the book itself, but I have to wonder if the people who write the synopses on the back of these books even read the books themselves. This is the second time I've read a book where the back synopsis has som

I really enjoyed Rachel McKaslin's story, an I definitely recommend it. Rachel and Jake are characters that I definitely grew fond of, I appreciate that they aren't presented as perfect, and their story was a delightful journey with some very humorous parts. The final twist near the end of the book almost had me irrevocably turned against Jake Hathaway, but the resolution was somewhat satisfying, although almost too quick and simple. The back cover description does have a couple of mistakes, but ...more

I enjoyed the book but I agree with a comment that was made in one of the posts. The ending was just too fast. It seemed to me that the author just wrapped it up too fast. I mean first he doesn't want a real marriage and there she is crying and then the next paragraph it's like all of a sudden he does want a real marriage and she forgives him that quickly.

I don't have much to say about this novel. It is a Christian-romance, centered on the love between a waitress and a military man. I ALMOST liked the ending, but then it ended all flowers and roses like the rest of these books. Oh well. If you want something purely entertaining to pass the time with, this would do it.

This is a very good book! I love reading Love Inspired books and every new title I see I read it!! This is a matchmaker plot from the beginning and has a happy ending! I honestly don't rememeber when I finished this book! It didn't take me long to read it since it was that good! :)

Received this through my wishlist on And of course, I found something I enjoyed reading, but also ended up reading book 3 of the series before I read any of the other books. Good quick read. Inspirational romance. A little predictable, but still a good read.

You can't hold back. Rachel McCaslin, and Jake McCall come together for her brother's wedding. Rachel lives in the family home by herself and Jake and his niece/daughter come to stay with her. The sparks fly and they both learn to love one another.
A sweet story. :) Rachel McKaslin has finally found love, as have her siblings Ben and Amy, and that just leaves big sister Paige. Well, at least until the next book anyway. lol

This was the most disappointing book so far of the series. Just fell completely flat for me!
