Thanks to Susan May Warren for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I cannot say enough how much I love the Christiansen family novels. I have read all of them and each one is special in its own way. This one is no different. I fell in love with this story almost from the beginning. Once I got about a quarter of the way through, I could hardly put it down. I would highly recommend this whole series to anyone. I can hardly wait to read the next book in the series in the spring of 2016. 5 stars!
Book description (from Goodreads): Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.
Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance—even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.
While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?
