4.5 stars. Stephanie Yates is in love with her best friend Rebecca's brother, Daniel Lincoln, who regards her more like a little sister than the mature young woman she's become. When Stephanie finally gets up the nerve to ask Daniel out, it's very bad timing and he rejects her invitation. Daniel is dealing with some serious issues of his own.  His arrogance in rejecting proper protocol and disrespecting the Holly Heights Hospital Administrator where he served as a doctor resulted in more than th ...more

Travel the world and get the ‘true love’ feeling all over again
If you are looking for a heartwarming romance that reminds of you of falling in love for the first time then this is your story! Not a spicy read but sometimes I just need the basics, the romance.
Cheryl Harper takes you from Texas to Peru to give the heroine, Stephanie, a second shot at claiming her teenage crush Daniel. He just happens to also be the older brother of one of her best friends. I like the older brother/best friend youn

Stephanie helps Daniel to see himself and who he wants to become, as well as herself. I also liked that she called him out on his rudeness and bossy ways. The t ...more

An inspirational story about finding your place in the world! Very eye opening of how different the amenities are and what's needed in other countries. I enjoyed the characters and loved seeing them connect and grow as the story evolved.

When Stephanie Yates and her two best friends win the lottery, they push her out the door for the trip to some place exotic that she's always talked about ... only she was thinking something more along the lines of Paris, not Peru where "the one she compares all

For Stephanie, winning the lottery means losing her safe, secure, and confining existence. Not that she's unhappy in her small town, but this gives her the chance, with a little shove from her friends, to get out into the world, starting with a visit to her friend's brother in Peru. Daniel, a doctor, is running a clinic there after imploding his career in their home town.Stephanie has always had a crush on Daniel, but she's like a little sister to him.

The story takes us up dangerous roads and tr
