However, after recently being rejected by the man she had thought to marry for a woman not as beautiful or well to do as she, Jessica has started looking inward and finding she doesnt care for what she sees. With suitors still lining up at the doors, Jessicas world is thrown for a loop when two distinctly different men find their way into her life. Will Jessica be able to follow her heart when she is not even sure who she is anymore?
I wasnt sure when I started this book how I would feel reading about Jessica. I havent had a chance to read the previous two books in the series but I know from reviews and back covers that she is not exactly a joy. I really enjoyed her character arc though and she grew so much throughout the story.
Tracie Peterson certainly knows how to write a story and I always enjoy her work. With many series under her belt, some of which can be read as standalones, I would definitely suggest reading this one in order as a little of the story and character development was lost on me having started at the end. Overall I enjoyed this story and will definitely go back and read the first two books.

crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5A disappointmentDecember 15, 2014crtnybcBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I wanted to like this book, but I found the main characters too caught up in mistakes of the past and thinking back on them and not so much with getting on with life. Jessica still seemed pretty self absorbed - even though she was concerned about it, if you really are you start thinking of others instead of dwelling on how selfish you are and how you need to change. Jessica's mother is very unconcerned and just tells her she's fine as she is. Apparently when you are beautiful you don't need much in the way of character.
Austin Todd's character and that of Harrison Gable are so stereotypical they aren't even interesting in the least. Jessica and Austin seem to fall in love rather suddenly. They really don't spend much time together and all of a sudden they are pining for each other.
This was not Tracie Peterson's best by any means, but there's nothing terribly objectionable about it either.
