I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I received it in the mail this afternoon and could not put it down once I started reading it! I loved it. The book is well written and the story line is so uplifting. Kudos to Melissa for writing such an awesome book about the amazing way God works in our lives and the power of forgiveness. This is probably the best book I have read in a while! I wish there were more books like this in the main stream book stores. The message within the ...more

I absolutely loved this book. It reminded me of a Nicholas Sparks novel. I got emotionally invested in the characters, and couldn't wait to see what happened next. I really hope to see more books about the people of Mercy. The only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars was because there were some misspelled words and some incorrect sentences, but nothing a good proofreader couldn't fix. It didn't hurt the story though, and this will be one of those books that will go on my "keep" shelf to read ...more

I borrowed this book from a friend since she told me how good it was and I am so glad that I did! I only read Christian books and this one was exactly what I like to read. Looking for more by this author.
A wonderful story of forgiveness, faith, and love. The Christian characters are real, flawed human beings, but the power of the Holy Spirit is at work in their lives. The book is inspirational, moving, and compelling. A few editing problems did not detract from the power of the story.

This is a very enjoyable book. I love reading christian fiction, and this one is a must read. It teaches a lot about forgiveness, something a lot of people need to remember.

Christian mystery romance. A good read, interesting and clean, liked it. Christian references aren't "heavy." Recommended.
