I requested this book from NetGalley because the plot sounded really good, and the story itself was enjoyable. Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan of Taylor. At all. By the end of the book, the word “ex-convict” made me want to scream because Taylor would not stop thinking the word every single time she thought about Joe. Joe was a ridiculously great guy who made a stupid mistake as a young man and paid the price for it, he was also a man who never even once judged HER for her own past mistakes while she literally judged him for his as if it were her job. It didn't matter to her that he wasn't that guy anymore, that he went to church and support group meetings and that he lived clean and respectably for three years before she rolled in to town and started labeling him a criminal, she acted as if he were fresh out of jail and still doing the things that got him sent there to begin with. It was absolutely ridiculous how often she used his past as an excuse to act holier than thou. I'll be honest, by the twenty-fifth time she asked herself if she could get past his being an ex-con, I was hoping he would find someone else to be with because he deserved to be with someone who wasn't using his past as an excuse to push him away. But he persevered despite it all and there was a happily ever after.
Despite my dislike of Taylor, this book was not awful. I really liked her neighbors and the small town of Charity, the small amount of drama between Taylor and Arlene, and I even liked the story line that happened with regards to Taylor's pregnancy and the baby's biological father. All of the characters were fleshed out well, and the author's writing talent definitely showed. If Taylor hadn't spent the whole book being so blasted judgmental, this would have easily been a four star book.
If you like a book about a nice little small town that likes to give second chances (even if our heroine doesn't), a little drama surrounding a baby's origin story, and really fun side characters that make the story enjoyable, you would probably enjoy this one.
I requested an ARC of this book via NetGalley and was under no obligation to write this review.
Joe is a wonderful hero. His gentleness, his faith, his belief that he is and always will be a better man than his younger self who made some bad decisions is what gets him through the day. That and giving others a second chance. He served his time. He suffered, but he holds no grudge. He loves Taylor, but he holds back giving her enough room to grow, to learn to love him. To take a risk.
Taylor was cold and standoffish for a while, but I understood her distrust. She had a poor record when it came to men. Her last romance was based on lies. Then she found out she was pregnant. She needed to balance her desire to raise and protect her child alone, with her growing interest in Joe. It was easier to push him aside, saying she couldn't get involved with an ex-convict than face the truth that she really was interested. Joe's strength and his huge capacity for friendship, and total acceptance, was what brought her around in the end.
Every woman needs a Joe in her life!
Taylor, a nurse looked at the picture of him in the paper and it was his marriage to another...
Not the first time it happened to her but still devastating.
She ends up in Charity Montana to reinvent herself-pregnant and she has a place to stay in.
The house she rented is in bad shape but the elderly woman is welcoming-Dixie.
Native American Joe her property manager and owner of the nursery and Joe helps ex cons find work under supervision.
Love hearing of the nurser and the plants and their attributes. Joe is attracted to her upon sight.
Alternating chapters of Joe and then Taylor and their interests as they keep running into one another. Like how she investigates her new surroundings, all stores have woman's first names
Love hearing the meditation garden-I can just imagine it and what all the symbols stand for.
She opens up to him and he to her as to their past. Her ex is not yet ready to be done with her although he's married.
Misunderstandings and you don't know who she's going to end up with, including her own baby...Love Joe's solution although he's staying away from her.
Love knitting, don't see that very often any more and religious interjections. Toe ring-just don't get these, like tattoos. Human chain gang, novel idea!
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Their Christmas Miracle is excerpted and an author bio.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
So, this wasn't really the story for me, but there are definitely good things about it, so if you don't mind the issues I had above, you may still enjoy Taylor & Joe (and their neighbors, seriously Dixie & Ram are cute!). : )
