A second chance for love!
A Case For Forgiveness is the beautiful touching love story of Shay and Jonah. I really enjoyed it! Well written, by new-to-me author Carol Ross, it's a heartwarming debut in her new series Seasons of Alaska. Shay is the innkeeper of the Faraway Inn in Alaska and Jonah a Chicago attorney. Once, they had been sweethearts, but their dreams and desires had separated them far from each other. But, Jonah has come back to take care of his grandfather Caleb who has a plan to g

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed this heartwarming story. It's a great long read that grabs you from the start. I received this book from Goodreads First Reads program but it in no way reflects on my review. I can't wait to read another by Carol Ross!

ad the opportunity to read another great book by Carol Ross in exchange for an honest review.

I found this book so hard to put down. The book is about a couple that have problems in the past and have gone their separate ways. Now the young man's grandfather claims to be sick in an effort to get them back together.

Jonah's grandfather and his best friend Doc are great at scheming and matchmaking. They are pushing Jonah and Shay together every opportunity they can. I don't want to give to much of th

Wow! Another wonderfully, amazing book by Carol Ross! When I found out she had released her second book, I couldn't get my hands on a copy quick enough. This book had it all, just like Mountains Apart. I love that the main characters are complete opposites, from Noah who is a "big time" city lawyer to his childhood (and into young-adulthood) sweetheart, Shay, who is a small town hotel owner. This book has such a cozy feel to it and makes me want to cuddle up to a fire with a warm blanket and a c ...more

I loved this book! It grabs your interest and your heart right from the start. I like a story that builds a good relationship right away and makes the reader want that happy ending. Shay and Jonah are caring people with flaws that they accept about themselves and learn to accept in each other. Once again Carol Ross has given readers a heartwarming story and gives you hope in forgiveness and love. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to the next book.

Shay James is conflicted. Deep down she still loves Jonah Cedar, but she can't reconcile herself to the fact that he chose to leave her 10 years ago to pursue his law degree at Yale.  Now he's back in Rankins, Alaska, after only a few measly visits over the years, to help out his "ailing" grandfather. Shay is livid that Jonah has rarely bothered to visit his granddad after all he's done for him.  She feels that Jonah has accomplished his goals in the form of money, career and material comforts, ...more

The daughter of free-range parents, she developed a love of adventure and the outdoors at a very early age. She’s grateful for the “research material” ...more
