The only thing scarier than living on the edge is stepping off it.
Maggie Montgomery lives a life of adventure. Her job as a cinematographer takes her from one exotic locale to the next. When Maggie's not working, she loves to rappel off cliffs or go skydiving. Nothing frightens her.
Nothing, that is, except Ivy, Texas, where a family emergency pulls her back home to a town full of bad memories, painful secrets, and people Maggie left far behind . . . for a reason.
Forced to stay longer than she intended, Maggie finds her family a complete mess, including the niece her sister has abandoned. Ten-year-old Riley is struggling in school and out of control at home. The only person who can really handle the pint-sized troublemaker is Conner, the local vet and Ivy's most eligible bachelor. But Conner and Maggie keep butting heads--he's suspicious of her and, well, she doesn't rely on anyone but herself.
As Maggie humorously fumbles her way from one mishap to another, she realizes she's going to need to ask for help from the one person who scares her the most.
To save one little girl--and herself--can Maggie let go of her fears and just trust God?
The author has mastered the portrayal of partial-application of faith to life. The plot continuously takes unexpected twists and turns, keeping the readers attention effortlessly. It is not a typical Christian romance; it is primarily a story of growth and healing. The relationships between the characters are realistic and intense, and they draw in the reader. The entire book is an unforgettable experience.
Maggie Montgomery has been running from her past for years and making a successful living in the world of television, but failing in the world of love. Out of the blue comes a phone call from the father who, she is convinced, has never loved her. He begs her to help him care for young Riley. Maggie agrees and finds herself on the road to healing for Riley, for her father, and for herself.
Maggie is wild, headstrong, and fearful. She is the personification of many strong women of today who overcame (or, rather, shoved down) bad childhood experiences and became financially successful. She has the partial-application faith that so many of us have, and she deals with her problems the same way that many of us would. The other characters are also unique, intense, and very realistic. Their relationships with each other and with Maggie are believable, and it is easy to empathize with them.
Overall, I was very impressed with the book. Its depth and accuracy were pleasantly surprising, and its characters were relatable and loveable. It is an excellent novel, especially for female readers. Becky Blomenberg, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
