I received this book from GoodReads First Reads.

This book was a really good, quick read. I was not expecting much, due to this being a religious book, but was pleasently surprised by the story. While God was mentioned throughout the book, there were only two chapters that I thought the religious aspects may have been overdone.

Conrad Nelson gets his story. It is so neat to see these characters come to life after you seen them in the shadows of previous books.

Another incredible Dry Creek book from Janet.

Another great book from the Dry Creek Series! I just love this series! I can't wait for the next story. I love how we get characters from previous books that show up in this story. I always love it when you read a series that incorporates everyone they've written least the main ones. Books like these make me want to live in a place like this!

Although I had a little harder time getting into this story, I did like it and was glad that Conrad was willing to take a chance on love, and that Katrina was willing to take a chance on life...married life! So many children take issues into adulthood from lost parents, lack of nurturing...God is in the business of finding lost people.

This book was not very well written. It was corny and unbelievable and took place over only like four days.
