Language: no profanity whatsoever! Love it!
I liked that Laurie Larsen does not shy away from real topics. She takes the issues head on and brings them to life for the reader.
This is an emotional novel. There are ups and downs for these characters individually and as a couple. You will find yourself right in the rollercoaster of emotions with them.
Very charming and heartwarming book and sure to be the first of many that I read, I was swept into the story and found it difficult to put down. I never give spoilers I will say though that their HEA was very much deserved and well earned.
Thank you Laurie I am very eager to read more so will more than likely be collecting the others 😊
I found some parts of the story confusing.
Nora visits Henry in prison - he is brought in to see her with his hands handcuffed behind his back????
then Nora and her sister go to t ...more
So happy to find an inspirational romance that shares biblical insights that fit the story. This is not one of those quick reads that force the reader to buy another book only to be left hanging once again. This is a full satisfying read.
I'm not going into the details of the story. You can get that from the author's blurb, but I'm posting this to give you courage to download this book as you won't be disappointed.
This is a wonderful story about how with the power of prayer can help you make decisions easier. Nora inherits her aunt farm in Murrells Inlet and has to decide if she is going to keep it. She is a lawyer in Philadelphia, but the ranch makes her think about slowing down. Shaw in the local vet and use to help her aunt with her animals.
The story really grabs the readers attention from the get-go. Laurie Larsen does a great job being descriptive and allowing the reader to feel like they are immersed in the story.
I was surprised at how fresh and how many surprises there were in this story. What a wonderful job of keeping the reader invested in the story and its characters!
Characterization is key in any novel and I felt like Nora was a great main character with real problems that the reader can relate to. She was easy to get b ...more

A woman who must choose between a successful career and a surprise inheritance. Success isn’t always fulfilling when measured with a life that touches others and yourself in deeper ways.
Laurie Larsen has written a story that pulls at the heartstrings and draws you into the budding relationship between Shaw and Nora. It shares the struggles that ...more
The author did a great job on an entertaining story and teaching, through the character, how easy it is to turn to God and ask him for guidance in issues. I’ll admit though, I started and quit awhile ago because it was different and harder to read about an older romance...not as interesting to me, and especially because the main character was the epitome of what I didn’t like...a career driven woman with no concern for any other purpose. I finally picked it up and restarted though ...more
I enjoyed this book about a lawyer, Nora Ramsey, who inherits her aunt’s Victorian house and beachfront property. She has a decision to make: stay or sell? This book dealt with the real struggles Nora had to face. Keep her high powered job in Philadelphia or opt for a slower pace and something worthwhile in South Carolina? She had the help if her sister, Patty, and a new f ...more
This is an easy read with a nice pace although there are some issues raised, which may be uncomfortable for some readers.
Nora is a driven and successful lawyer, who sometimes acts as though she only has half a brain, but her character grows and develops, as she has to decide on whether to accept her new life or go back to the old one.
Shaw comes across as a devout and likeable man; living under the shadow of a dark ...more
Nora is an attorney for a law office, one with a big problem--a bad problem that one of the partners isn't too sure she didn't have a hand in. The other partner--her mentor--is in jail, apparently for good reason. She's put on leave. Permanently?
Sometimes God has to literally shove us o ...more
I was very interested in this story from the beginning. I liked that Nora was forced to slow down and take a long look at her life and what she really wanted to do. I appreciated Shaw and the position he was in, wanting to go slow and wrestling with himself. I was a little annoyed that Nora put so much emphasis on Shaw lying to her when It was a lie of omission for heart-breaking reasons. Time apart did its work and they ended up together in the end. I would have like ...more
The beginning of the story between Nora and Shaw is so sweet and romantic. Personally found the coming together of these two a bit unrealistic. But it is a romance novel and real couples meet cute are...well...less cute. As the story continues and the c ...more
Living close to Philadelphia and just coming back from a vacation in Pawleys Island, this was such a fun book to read! While on vacation, I visited Murrells Inlet, the Marsh Walk, drove on route 17, saw alligators, and walked the beach. It was fun to revisit the area after my return. I also ride and care for horses and spend lots of time at a farm in the country. I enjoyed this Christian book immensely not only because of it's location and subject but also for it's positiv ...more
As an older woman, I could strongly relate to Nora. Chasing a title, a career which consumes your entire life, leaving you empty and abandoned. Been there. I love the way her life shifts and the conclusion of the book. Laurie, you have become a favorite author. This is the first book of yours I have read and I look forward to more!
