About the Book:
Grace Bradford is living a lie. To the world she has the perfect life: A promising country music career and a husband who adores her. But her husband isn't the man everyone believes him to be. When a car accident widows her and ends her career, Grace escapes to Delaney Mountain. But moving to the remote town doesn't wipe away the ugly secret of her marriage. Kyle Delaney never intended to return to Delaney Mountain, but he promises his dying father that he'll turn their land into a working cattle ranch. He uproots his life in Austin, sells his flourishing business as a music agent, and returns to the Colorado town of his childhood. Can a runaway singer and a makeshift rancher, thrust together by circumstance and held together by the common thread of loss and a love of music, find hope and a happily-ever-after under the stars of Delaney Mountain?
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (4 stars)
This is a redemptive story filled with God’s grace and love. Both Grace and Kyle have baggage from their past filled with regret and pain. Kyle is determined to keep his promise to his dad and prove he has changed. Grace is trying to heal from her painful past and begin a new life. Can they help each other and find love at the same time? I was surprised with this book as it was novella length but it didn’t feel like one to me. Both characters were well developed; I felt like I really got to know them and could feel their pain. I had to know that things would improve for them and that they found peace. The only downfall for me was that there were times I was confused on what day it was and how long of a period had passed since the previous event. One quote I will take with me is: “Pray about it. God’s never shy about giving His help.” This is a great reminder for us, never hesitate about turning to God for help, He wants to help us. I enjoyed this read.
