I enjoyed the first book of the series and wanted to continue the story. The second story line was similar to the first. The author writes in an interesting manner; characters are believable and story line continued from one book to the next. Looking forward to book 3 in the near future.
I liked this book much better than the first book in the series. I felt that the relationship between Christopher and Deborah was developed pretty well and the other characters stories were better explained. I felt like I got to know these characters better than in the first book. It left me with a desire to see what would happen in the next book. It is not the best series I have read by this author, but it is improving with each book.
This book made me cry and laugh. I thought Deborah and Dr Clayton were never going to get things worked out. I was so worried about what Staurt was going to do to Deborah's family. The story has many twist and turns that made the book very hard to put down.
I usually enjoy Tracie Peterson's books. Maybe I should have read the first book in this series (Striking A Match) because this book was like picking up a book and only reading the middle chapters!
This second book in the series starts out with a murder. It felt like the murder was just there to get the book started because once you got past those few pages the book just crawls along. There are a few moments of action like when a strong storm comes through the area. Even the storm though is talked about and then you feel just dropped off there. It was like these moments were written for another book and thrown in this one to add some action.
The story follows the lives of a family in Texas. There are a lot of characters but the main one for most of the book is Deborah. Deborah, who wants to be a doctor, goes along with the town doctor, whom she is courting, to his medical calls. The town people accept him as their doctor but not her helping him even though she has been there all her life. This part just isn't believable.
The story leaves you hanging on certain plots. I have read many books that were part of a series but this is the first one where I felt you really must read the series in order to follow the story.
