She certainly didn't expect him to come back as her new landlord, set on selling the home she's had for the past seven years. Faith never found the courage to tell Chase how she felt back when they were still friends, and shes determined to keep those old

Leap of Faith has been a passion project of mine since 2013, when my best friend and business partner first urged me to write a story about "the one who got away". I've lived with these characters, this fictional town, in my head for so many years, it's incredibly scary to let them out for others to see. But I do love this book, and I hope you will, too.

Full disclosure, this isn't a fast-paced, high-tension, steamy romance. It's not entirely "clean" or "sweet", but it's very light on the

This was as perfect a love story as I have ever read. I fell in love with Faith Thompson and her insecurities and yet her inner strength as well. Chase Stevens was not an annoying unaware dolt as the love interest is often described in love stories. He was just a guy following what he thought was the dream he wanted until it wasn't anymore.

Faith had dreams too as we all do when graduating high school but, as often happens, fate had other plans. Instead of leaving her hometown of Mercy she stays

Thank you to the author for the copy. And I must say that even though I read Romance genre, sweet and gentle type are pretty rare for me. But reading Leap of Faith was just absolutely amazing. It was the perfect, cute and sweet romantic story I've ever read. And also the connection and bonding of Faith and Chase is absolutely perfect.
I would definitely recommended reading this book.

I just loved this story! The one that got away is a premise I always find intriguing, since we all have that one person in our past who, had we not lost touch for whatever reason, could have changed the entire trajectory of our life (even if we don't want to admit it). In Leap of Faith, we meet Faith and Chase, high school best friends driven apart by his new relationship. Ten years later, fate pushes them back together when Chase ends up the landlord of Faith's duplex apartment building.

This is one of the best written romances I've read! The writing is crisp, to the point, and doesn't get too lost in the characters' heads. The story moved along well, keeping me interested in what was coming next. The town of Mercy, New York, was a character in itself, with its residents who never leave, the Books & Buns Café where Faith works, and the bar where townies gather. I especially enjoyed reading about Faith's hiking tours, her funny and big-hearted friend/boss Clara, and the ...more

(Rating 4.5/5)

At one point or another in our lives, we have to leap to see if theres anything there to catch us.

Leap of Faith is a classic love story about the one that got away. It follows the lives of Faith Thompson and Chase Stevens, a hiking tour guide and real estate broker, as they rekindle their friendship and romance that failed to ignite in their youth - in the small town called Mercy.

I loved the fact that Leap of Faith is based in a small town; living in a city where you see the same

Lili Grouse writes contemporary romance with independent, strong characters finding mutual ground and a HEA.

Growing up on a farm, Lili Grouse discovered her love of storytelling early on, making up bedtime stories for the calves, who were probably happier for the attention than the actual storytelling. In school, she was given a notebook to be used solely for writing stories in. She filled it up
