Format: Paperback
Charlie has just graduated from college with honors and is bound for law school in Fall, but can't talk herself into heading home to Connecticut over Summer break. Her mother being a high powered career woman has already lined Charlie up with the perfect divorce attorney and seems to have their future planned. Charlie is less than thrilled to face her pushy parents and decides instead to go with her best friend Fo to work on a ranch in Montana. She's got just a few months of freedom left before Mommy dearest takes over. What Charlie isn't expecting when she arrives in Montana is the breath taking scenery which includes Fo's handsome cousin Luke Langston. But Luke is engaged to be married and Charlie has to work to overcome her blossoming feelings toward the hard working down to earth man. She's also asked to nanny Luke's dysfunctional family including his annoyingly self assured brother Chase. Charlie will find her self fighting off unwanted advances from Chase and one more sinister staff member who brings a sense of danger to her otherwise peacefully perfect summer.

In this clean romance, Jaclyn M. Hawkes shows the power of enduring friendship, trusting in one's gut and following your own path instead of one set up by another. There is plenty of action between three small toddlers, a baby pig, and a crime waiting to be committed. The author teaches the importance of fidelity in marriage, following through with commitments, avoiding drugs and working hard. Not to mention, she rolls in the perfect romance including a cowboy for our modern day. I loved Outer Edge of Heaven and would recommend it to all readers. Grab a pack of oreos and some milk then head out onto your porch with this one!

Content: some minor violence including attempted assault of a female and a few gunshots. Teenage marijuana use which is strictly handled and punished. No swearing or sex.

I appreciated a clean romance but would have liked to know it is LDS in the book description. It was suprising to realize only after reading about mission trips and using the president and prophet as examples..not my cup of tea.

I'm not really into LDS romance but didn't know that's what this book was based on when I got it. I tried reading it but couldn't get into it. For me, it was just "meh". But it might be right for you...

I gave this book three stars because it kept my attention well enough that I read it in its entirety.

However I had a few complaints:

First, the book needed a better editor. There were sentences throughout the book that I needed to reread several times before I could comprehend what the author was actually meaning to say. This was due in large part to the flow (or lack thereof) of the wording.

Second, there are several mentions of "Charlotte's Web" in the book. The nit-picky part of me didn't like that the author continually referred to the movie instead of the classic book. I also balked that the author apparently never read the book (or saw the movie) because she continually referred to the little girl as Charlotte, not realizing the SPIDER was Charlotte and the girl was Fern. This comment, of course, doesn't have much to do with the story line of "The Outer Edge of Heaven" at all but the mistake did cause me to pause while reading and interrupted the flow of the book for me several times.

This was a good effort by the author seeing as how it was her second book. As I mentioned earlier, I enjoyed the book enough to read it all the way through. In the future I hope the author does better proofing so her story won't be dimmed by blatant errors and by weird sentences.

I do not understand why romance authors refuse to make it clear in the title description when the theme of their book is based on religion, or are written along the lines of specific religious views. I don't like to get started in a book and then have these views pop up and become a constant theme throughout - FYI....this book is LDS (Latter Day Saints) or Mormon based. Beyond that it is a pretty slow moving story (even with an attempted rape) and the dialogue seems more that of teenagers than adults.

I give it a medium rating. It is pleasant to read, but don't expect fabulous. The phrasing of the sentences is sometimes awkward. The characters don't feel totally realistic, but the story is reasonably entertaining.

I am writing this because I would like reviewers to rate books on a scale from bad to great, so I know which ones are worth buying.

This was a sweet light summer romance read. I gave it a three for a few reasons. It definitely needed better editing. I agrees with a prior review, that I had to re-read some sentences several times to understand her turn of phrase. My biggest complaint was it was filled will LDS preaching. I'm not opposed to religious Romance but I do think it should be labeled as such. At almost every turn the heroine pondered " is this what the Prophet would want?" Am I doing What Jesus would do? Am I working my way to the 1st level of heaven?

As far as the "Fun" in Dysfunctional? I don't find it fun that a 23 year old has to handle the whole operation because his father is apparently in capable of making a good decision, including choosing an appropriate wife, (or two). It's no wonder his oldest is a womanizing, self absorbed creep.

If you strip away the outer characters, the main couple are sweet and it's fun to watch their relationship grow.

All in all it was an OK read considering it was free.
