Jessa Graff loved her job at the Jasper Lake Chamber of Commerce. She spent her days promoting the town she grew up in and never wanted to leave. When a detour on the nearest highway brought more traffic to town, she was ecstatic to see the influx of visitors, especially one in particular who caught her attention.

Jasper Lake drew in Landon Reeves from the first time he drove through. Its serene, picturesque settings spoke to his weary soul. Life hadn’t be

Fun tie-in

I enjoyed catching up with the other two Reeves siblings from another series and finally getting to see a more likable, approachable side to Landon. Jessa is a sweetheart and I appreciated her respect and compassion toward her worrywart mother. The story was sweet, with a few bumps and turns that gave the characters depth. I look forward to Trixie’s story, but truthfully it’s latecomer Beth’s I’m anticipating most. There are lots of possibilities for her!

Landon, giving his grandmother a week end away at Jasper Lake. She had a condition wanting his parents to go along. They were of a gypsy nature, and some place new every few years. Driving his rig through this place offered a peace he didn’t know. The black sheep, because of parents, so distant for him. Jessa this was her home, job with the chamber of commerce and living at the B & B. meeting Landon, they connected right away. This town, the family, and people were part of her. Which he didn ...more

book. I really enjoyed reading it!
The story is about Jessa & Landon.
They had a chance meeting as, Landon passed through town, when his truck route was detoured. Jessa is the commerce director. Landon stopped in for questions about Jasper Lake.
He & Jessa hit it off right away.
Can Jessa & Landon, find their way

Born to Love. . .

A sweet romance, this story is about forgiveness, redemption, and new sweet love. Families can be oh so messy and figuring out how to share that with a potential new love can be quite frightening, and definitely humbling. Landon and Jessa handle it all with grace. A "real" story. I highly recommend.

A Warm Entertaining Story

Author Leah Atwood tells another story filled with warmth. Both Landon's and Jesse's family had dramatic issues they were working through. Meeting each other made them realize it was important to work on the issues that could ruin their chances at happiness. They realized with God's help and through prayer, forgiveness would come.

Forgiveness and Grace

Lovely book with timely reminders. No family is perfect. There are always rough spots and God's grace can help us forgive and move on. Families are bonded by love and this book revealed how Land on worked through his anger and bitterness. Great lessons contained in a sweet love story.

A Jasper Lake book

Aw! I love this book! I actually hope we get to hear about Beth. it would be interesting to hear what her story is, but I can’t wait to read about Tracie in the next book. I like Leah Atwood’s books because they are all Christ-centered. These characters had family issues, but with God’s and each other’s help, they got through them. How awesome!

Family Dynamic wins again

I love stories with strong characters who can stand on their own, yet when they come together, they become two united forces ready to handle anything and letting God take the lead.

Great Sweet and Clean

This series is one I'll follow for sure. Lovely small town with an awesome boarding house which showcases the characters and family dynamics of the characters. Faith and forgiveness are strong themes here as well.

Snowed In Love

Very sweet romance that shows although we are all flawed we can find renewal through Christ. Sometimes we get so caught up in the negatives in our life we fail to see the positives.

Quick

For some reason this book seemed to not make sense timeline wise. It felt like so much was missed. It spanned over a year and it felt like we didn't see much of that year at all.

Enjoyable

This was a great story about finding love because of a road detour. I enjoyed how each chat had things they needed to overcome but with faith they pulled through.

Born to Love

Forgiveness is powerful. Life is too short to live in anger and resentment. I loved the powerful message this story represents.

This book is all about bitterness and how it will destroy your life if you let it. With God's help you can forgive them. This book clearly points out that it is not instantaneous and requires time and prayer to work through the layers of anger and bitterness.
