I love Kathryn Springer's books, and couldn't put this one down. Her characters are so rich that you feel like you are inside them, quirks and problems and joy and all.
Kathryn does a great job building the romantic tension between the H/H, as well as developing each character, including the heroine who is still dealing with the grief of losing her first husband. The character growth seems really organic as you read and each step in the romance comes so naturally.
This is a lovely read and I highly recommend it.
Emma Barlow, the widow of a police officer, is responsible for the upbringing of her 10-year-old son Jeremy, and supports them financially with her librarian's job. Jake Sutton, the new police chief in town, has until recently been on a long-term undercover job in a large city.
Jake finds Emma extremely interesting. He wants to know her better, and gets along extremely well with Jeremy. Emma likes him but isn't sure she wants to let anyone enter into her safe little world, specially a police officer. However, Jake becomes Jeremy's assigned big brother/role model via a church function and she feels somewhat stuck.
What I liked:
*The characters in this book felt so real. I was so interested in what would happen, and the relationship seemed to progress so naturally.
*The spiritual growth that happened in the main characters was encouraging.
What I didn't like:
*Jake made some moves that seemed presumptuous on his part. I found that pretty frustrating at first, as I am a very protective mother, as Emma is. (Emma is overly protective, but I totally empathize with that!) After a while, he learned his lesson and started communicating with Emma more, rather than assuming that she'd be OK with this or that.
Contemporary romance, even when it's Christian, is NOT my favorite genre to read. I definitely prefer historical fiction, but for a few select authors I will branch out into contemporary.Read more ›
This is a sad story about a woman still grieving six years after her police officer husband was killed during a high-speed chase. She is very over-protective of her son and doesn't realize that she is keeping him from being a normal boy. But when Chief of police, Jake Sutton shows up with a puny apple tree on the anniversary of her husband's death, Jeremy instantly took to him and chose Jake in the new mentoring program at the church he attended.
Emma's story was so heart-breaking. The author made it seem so real, I could almost picture her crying over the loss of her husband and her son's father. Jake was a sweetheart how he took Jeremy under his wing and really taught him a lot of guy stuff. He was sweet and caring, yet careful, with Emma's fragile heart. And in the end, it just happened...just like that! The healing didn't happen all at once, and I'm sure the healing for both continued a long time after this book ended. But it's always wonderful to see two strangers come together and become one!
