From the outside, Brenda Stewart has it all. A rich, influential father. Friends in high places. Men clamoring for her attention. But inside, Brenda is miserable. Her father is overbearing, her friends are fickle, and the men want her money and the prestige it brings. Like Jim Ensley. But Jim has his own problems. And fears. If he can’t get that vice president’s spot, all may be lost, personally and professionally.
A night of indiscretion and Brenda’s subsequent escape into the Wasatch Mountains causes havoc that Brenda and Jim could never have imagined. And where does God fit in?
LAURALEE BLISS has always liked to dream big dreams. Part of that dream was writing, and after several years of hard work, her dream of publishing was realized in 1997 with the publication of her first romance novel, Mountaintop, through Barbour Publishing. Since then she’s had twenty books published, both historical and contemporary. Lauralee is also an avid hiker, completing the entire length of the Appalachian Trail both north and south. Lauralee makes her home in Virginia in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains with her family.

The main problem I had with the book was the use of the name of a real, living person who became well known only through some terrible times she went through. Even though the media has never left her name out of any story about her and her sad predicament, I don't think any novelist, especially a Christian one, should add to that number. The story here wasn't at all furthered by referring to her. It was almost in a frivolous way.
Also, the characters were undeveloped and shallow. The love of one character for another was lacking. Brenda was flighty. Her friend Jill seemed uncaring and Marge's character changed her allegiance quickly.
The brief Spiritual contribution was unconvincing to me and showed little growth.
This wasn't the worst book I've read, but it was a disappointment.
