Despite this book being fairly predictable, I really enjoyed it. I really liked how intriguing the mystery was. The romance aspect was also great. It was very sweet. There was a great conflict when Noah could not trust Sam. They eventually overcame it though and ended up together.

Throughout the story, Sam tried to be nice to the people in the new town, but they resented her. During this, she ended up learning the hard way who her true friends are. That is a great but tough lesson and I enjoyed this book.

I received this book for free from the author in return for an honest review.

A well written story of a young woman who resists faith in a God who doesn't seem to care. This is a sweet romance that sensitively addresses sexual temptation for Christians without making the reader blush. As life in the city becomes unbearable, Samantha inherits a country inn and grows to appreciate small town living. Unfortunately trouble continues to follow and she is accused of murder. Who is trying to implicate her and why? Will the romance survive in the months prior to the trial? Will she have to close the inn as guests fear to stay? The suspense will keep you turning pages to the very end! I believe Mary has promising future and look forward to her next book!

In the beginning of the book, the main female character has a few frightening experiences and then after that, an unexpected change. Once she starts a new life, things settle in and the romance begins. At that point, I thought, well that's that, I know what's going to happen now! And just when I was ready to watch what I KNEW would happen unfold the author hit me upside the head with something totally unexpected, which I love. Reading a book you can predict can still be enjoyable, but once I was completely caught off guard, I no longer read that way at all. I still had my ideas about what might happen and I was wrong about many of them. It makes me admire the author and her imagination. It felt like she did it on purpose...led me one way so I'd think something and then changed direction. She did it masterfully and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall, the book was an adorable love story with some mystery and intrigue thrown in, something that can be hard to do, but Mary L. Ball did it well.

My friend recommended this book to me. I was hesitant because some books she suggests are not what I like, but nonetheless I picked the book up. I started to read the book and once I got to about page 10 I was hooked. The author has a very pleasant writing style, and pays attention to detail. I have read a broad range of books, and the author keeps sexual situations appropriate. The story was a great mystery and romance book in one. Overall it is a pretty good read and worth the time to read it.

Sam is in for a life change when she is down on her luck she gets the break she needs. This inspiration romance that is filled with mystery and suspense had me hooked till the last word was read. I truly felt this story was well thought out and had a message of Gods love for each and everyone of his children. It was nice to watch Sam and Noah relationship grow. Noah learning to trust and Sam having someone love her no matter what. I also liked watching Sam come to know Jesus. Ms. Ball did an awesome with putting in some of the unexpected to this story. A great story that will leave you happy!

Just FYI this does not contain any sex or swearing.

This is a must read book. It ranks up at the top with Nicholas Sparks movies. Mary illustrates this story very well. I love Christian stories and this is a Christian love story. I recommend this book for Homeschoolers and people who read love stories.

This story starts off with our heroine in danger from an ex boyfriend who just can't let go. It quickly slows down in the action/danger department but the story itself does not get lost. Samantha seems like two people, before and after the inheritance. Logic and judicial procedure are dealt with a little loosely. The editing is decent and dialog flows well. Time passage jumps a couple of times but it is easy to catch up. Christianity is dealt with well, imperfect people with issues,trying to follow Christ. I give this story three and a half stars. I am glad I read it but will not read it a second time.

This novel was an inspiring read. When Sam begins her journey you really want to see her succeed and the author grabs you and takes you with the story to the very end. The characters are vivid and the plot full of twists and turns. Enjoy!
