Book Description

Beaten and betrayed by the one who was supposed to love her,
Carly Richards is on the run!

Forced to live as a fugitive as her ex-fiance stalks her across country, she finds refuge in a small town in Montana. Her emotional scars are reluctant to heal, and Carly resists the friendliness of those around her ~ especially handsome farmer Joe Baird. Caught in the circumstances, the kind people around her begin to creep into her softening heart. God is at work, and she has to trust Him not only to take care of her, but care for the people she is learning to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story about love, faith and trust April 8, 2011
Format:Audible Audio Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was amazing! I started the book last night and finished it this morning! I could not put it down! It gets you sucked in right from the start. I loved the way the author mixed in mystery that had me on the edge of my seat most of the time, with a sweet romance, and a story of God's amazing protection and forgiveness!! The story was truly inspirational, warms the soul and the heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed the story! September 13, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback
Carly Richards is on the run and on her own. She is dodging her ex-fiance, Ian, who is abusive, possessive and rich. His money allows him to find her every time. When her car conks out in a small town in Montana she's sure he won't find her there. She is given a job at the hardware store and allowed to live in the small apartment above the store. She makes some friends but doesn't want to get to settled because she's sure she'll be leaving soon. That is until she meets Joe Baird, the handsome farmer she could easily fall in love with. Joe's been burned by one fiance, can he trust Carly not to run??? Will Carly find the faith and courage to stay and let God take care of the rest???

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book that has become a favorite of mine September 22, 2010
Format:Perfect Paperback
This is Amanda Stephan's first novel, and I think she definitely has the gift to write! I appreciated this book for many reasons, the way she weaved the gospel message into this story, the importance of prayer throughout the story, and the way her characters relied on God, even through tough times, without blaming Him for everything bad that happened to them.
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, Faith Filled and AWESOME! January 21, 2011
By Molly
Format:Kindle Edition
A great debut! I have been reading a lot more debut novels lately, and it seems that with each one these authors have a talent beyond words. They write it so well and with the hand that is like a long seasoned author. It is no different with Amanda Stephan's novel. I was VERY pleased with her work.

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!
