Noah was about the most intimidating man Katherine had ever seen. Yet though one man's false promises had already dashed her d
I really liked this heartwarming and also intense romance between two people who were so perfect for each other. The story had me hooked from start and there were passages that moved me immensely.

He’d been comparing her impressive catch to his two small sunfish, but at her exclamation, Noah turned his gaze to the palette of color streaking the sky, then to Katherine’s face bathed in the golden glow of morning. “Never.”
First let me say the title was...rather cruel wasn't it? I sure don't want to be a Secondhand Wife, or to be called one.

This is the story of a naive woman who fell in love with a man who gave her many false promises.

My local library has this book in paperback. And now I have it on kindle, unfortunately it's not lendable.
I have been in a reading rut..yes, again and I decided to search through Amazon for some of my favorite themes.. I was even getting stuck thinking about what to search on, so I started looking at Cheryl St. John's books.
