I really enjoyed this book. I don't think it will appeal to everyone because it is a slow paced book. That isn't a bad thing because I think Jeff's writing is great and it kept me interested all the way through the story. This is the first book of his that I've read and this is the third in a series but I didn't feel like I was missing anything which is how I often feel if I'm not reading the first book.
I guess when it comes to reading out of order contemporaries are more flexible. This is one genre that I don't read as much but this year I've been expanding on the genres I read so I don't get burnt out on one. I am really enjoying the contemporary books I've come across this year. I always think it is great when a book gets a reaction out of me. Yes I'm the girl that will be reading while walking who might start yelling or laughing at my book. I really enjoy the characters in this book and find Rhett very amusing. I did laugh while reading this book and might have yelled a little.
This book takes place in Watervalley which is a small town where Luke is a doctor. It has an interesting group of characters including a group of folks that live on the outskirts called the Mennonites. I had never heard this word before but thought they sounded a lot like the Amish. Some of the people in town butt heads with the Mennonites. It just really feels like you're watching a story unfold of how life in a small town is. Small towns are slower paced and that's how this book is but not in a boring way but I can see how it wouldn't appeal to people who want a lot of action.
Litfuse Publicity sent me a copy of this book for me to read and review. Thank you.
