I thoroughly enjoyed this story. There were many elements that caught my attention. One was the zippy dialog and it was chuck-full! Another was the banter between the brothers (as well as Carly & Kelly). I LOVED that! It was fun and made me want to join in. I liked how there was an underlying message about dependence on the Lord to provide and meet out needs. Carly had all the traits I like in a heroine. She was spunky, sassy and yet had an inner strength to be admired. Joe was a very romantic hero. You can see why Carly would fall for him. There were a couple of places in the story where I felt how Joe reacted or the actions he "didn't" take seemed a bit out of character to me. I think Joe's brother, Todd, and his girlfriend, Kelly were a wonderful addition to the story. I also enjoyed the whole suspense surrounding "if" and "when" Ian would come for Carly. Overall I thought this was a great story and I would definitely recommend it. I am looking forward to future works from this author!
Carly Richards finds herself pulling into a small town in Montana with a car that finally dies on her. She needs a place to live, a job, and for her ex-fiance not to find her this time so he can drag her back to Texas and abuse her again. She finds a job at the local hardware store where the owners take her under their wing and also give her a small room above the store. At first Carly resists the friendliness of those in this small town, but the kind people around her begin to soften her heart and she learns to trust folks again. Joe Baird has also slowly been making progress with Carly and the two of them just seem to hit it off right from the start with their teasing and fun-loving humor. It was just enjoyable to watch their friendship quickly turn into love. But Carly's past will soon catch up to her and it won't be pretty when it happens.
I will be putting this story on my favorites list of books I have read. It was just a delight to see the people in this book live out their faith and put their trust in God. (The only thing I would change is the cover of the book; I didn't think it did justice to the story.)
I would like to thank Amanda Stephan for sending me her book and letting me read it and review it for her. I am one of the lucky ones!
In The Price of Trust, we meet Carly, a young woman on the run, who doesn't trust easy and who is having a bit of bad luck, getting stranded in a new town. But, through the AMAZING characters and a wonderful plot, Carly opens her heart to those around her, while realizing, with God as the center of things, the price of trust is easy in this town. But, along with learning to trust, Carly has a secret....one that could put a damper on her progress of trusting.
I loved the humor, the love, the secrets, and the message of relying on God, trusting in God, even when things don't go your way. Even in a tough, troubled spot, He will ALWAYS be there for you, if you just trust and believe in him. All of that, combined with the combination of a loving town and friendly characters, really gripped me and pulled me in.
I HIGHLY recommend this debut. It will leave you in awe that this book is a debut novel. It big on faith and HUGE on captivating the reader! No doubt, this 4 star novel will bring this author lots of high praises! It is easy to read when your captivate...I read this book in less than two days! Well done, Amanda!
