I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Julia & Chase were a delight to spend time with.
Cliche and boring. Skipped more than I read.
An amazing story!
What a fantastic story. I was enthralled right from the very emotional beginning. The plot of the book was very well written. The story just flowed through my mind just like a movie. Maggie (Chase's daughter) was an enchanting little one. I just wanted to hug her. Chase was a perfect male hero. His is strong and understanding and just so yummy!!! He has been in love with Julia since the first time he saw her in high school. Julia was a beautiful but wounded soul who marries another man (Chase's friend). After tragedy strikes, Julia moves away for five years. She comes back at Christmas time to spend a month before going back to Chicago. Chase only has a few weeks to help Julia see that she needs to stay in Shadow Creek with him and Maggie. With Chase's patience and love, it was wonderful to see Julia overcome her tragic past and move on. Make sure you have some tissues handy. There are a couple of scenes that may make you tear up.
This book has my favorite dual POV. That look into what the character is thinking and feeling at the moment really helps me to understand their actions.
I highly recommend this book. It will draw you into the wonderful town of Shadow Creek. You will want to move there (at least I do!!)
