“Just because God started you on one path didn’t mean He intended to keep you on that path all your life.”
-thoughts from Willow
Once again we come back to visit the Bradford sisters, all currently living in the state of Washington. This second book in the series centers on Willow, the oldest of the three young women, who generally lives a jet setting life as a world class model. Home for a much needed break, Willow encounters Corbin Stewart, a handsome former quarterback and a bitter reminder of relationships gone wrong. Is the small town of Shore Pine big enough to hold these two people who go out of their way to avoid each other until they can’t?
A watchful Willow and a decisive Corbin team up with his young cousin, Charlotte, to solve a family mystery. As the two are forced to spend time with each other and Charlotte, they remember the good things about each other, relive the painful ones, and discover new things along the way. As with many relationships, reconciliations can be both sweet and painful.
The novel explores the complexities of reconciliations and relationships, as well as the difficulties encountered when embracing new paths in life. Family, romance, and a dark secret make this story very engaging. The characters are like old friends at this point and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with Willow’s sisters, Britt and Nora, as well as meeting the new characters Corbin’s story introduces.
Terrific book! Another great read for people that enjoy contemporary romance, family drama, mystery, and faith inspired fiction. One more book left in the series! Counting down!
