Love’s never easy in three Arkansas romances. Pastor Grayson is still grieving his wife’s death. Will a budding relationship with florist Adrea Welch be the healing he needs to plant new love in his life? Laken left home eight years ago and never looked back. Now she’s in Romance, Arkansas, again, but is she too close to her past—and Hayden Winters? Shell doesn’t have a good reputation. But no matter what everyone thinks, she’s back in town with a job to do. Will Ryler Grant disrupt her plans. . .and change her heart?
Shannon Taylor Vannatter is a stay-at-home mom/pastor’s wife/writer. When not writing, she runs circles in the care and feeding of her husband, Grant, their eight-year-old son, and their church congregation. Home is a central Arkansas zoo with two charcoal gray cats, a chocolate lab, a dragonfish, and three dachshunds in weenie dog heaven. If given the chance to clean house or write, she’d rather write. Her goal is to hire Alice from the Brady Bunch.
LarikSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Truly amazing collectionSeptember 15, 2013LarikSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I started writing review for this collection a dozen times and I just can't express all the depth of it without telling the whole story. They sell each book separately and you can read each as a standalone novel but that way you will never know the whole story. All three books are saying the same story that changed the lives of the whole town. From one jealous girl who vowed to break another's engagement equaled a broken heart and an accident that cost a life and started a whole chain of events that changed hearts of many. Besides being deep romance novels these books share some tight siblings' relationships-I always valued that; and teach you that when God forgives He also forgets and he teaches us the same. Adrea's all-giving love for Grayson and his son was a slap in a face..I'm too selfish compared to her. Laken's undevided devotion to her nephew got even her boyfriend confused and jealous. And Shell's humbleness turns even the heart of her worse enemy - the town's gossiper. I was deeply touched by each story. You know when you read a book and there is this very bad character that no one even wants to mention his/her name, do you ever wonder what made them bad? I always do and I appreciate authors who take the time and effort to justify that person's actions. I really liked that Shell had her own story and that Sylvie was deeply involved in ach book. The Author is right people that hurt us are the ones that hurt the most inside. I learned that lesson not so long ago and realized how many times I pitied myself for receiving a few hurtful words from someone who secretly had much deeper wounds that needed healing and comfort. I recommend you all read this collection, while it has some humor and silliness that makes you slap some guy's handsome faces, they are challenging stories that will make you rethink your faith and you values in life.
PS: here I am in another extreme- not telling you at all anything of the story. I hope you truly like them like I did.
