In Linda LaRoque’s debut inspirational romance, Shattered Vows, we see a marriage tested by infidelity and the child resulting from the incident.

Wow!!! This book will have you on a journey of emotions... Yes, I actually cry some with this book! The in dept feelings of the character are more real then I expected. The logic of the story line makes you ponder yourself of what you would do placed in this situation. Makes you think if you could actually forget and forgive. But it also shows up that not everything is what it's seemed behind closed doors. I have never read form this author before, and I will be from this point on. I am just in ...more

Annie and Stu are a regular couple who have gone through a tragic loss then they face another issue that causes them to separate. Can they find the way back to each other? That is the question.

I was hooked on this book from the first page. Stu moves out and Annie comes home to find her way. Does Annie love Stu enough to make their marriage work? Annie questions everything about their relationship,

This was a really good book. It shows that no matter what you got through in a relationship, things can be overcome and love that survive and grow even stronger. This is a book of real relationhships and worth the read.

Overall, I enjoyed this book, but the baby's speech and understanding seemed well beyond her age. This made it a bit unbelievable.

Hard to review without spoilers, so I'm going to say that if you don't like your H to be a cheater I'd leave it alone. This H is hard to forgive.

Just no!!!!

You shouldn't write woman. How was it her fault she was healing and didn't want to have sex??? Did no one who was supposed to love her besides Nancy have a brain and see Stu was worthless??? He was never going to tell her until the accident but it was glossed over, just kept expecting her to forgive and accept this new child in replacement of theirs. Quite a few references about how she was like their dead daughter because of anything is going to get your wife to accept your love chil
