**********ANGRY RANT COMING************
I really liked this story and wanted more. I wanted an epilogue (hopefully telling more of the little girl Chase rescued.). There is an epilogue, but you have to sign up for the author's newsletter to get it. Offering a newsletter is great, but I personally don't care for them, although I do follow two fave authors on facebook. But my feeling are this: Write an epilogue or don't, but don't hold them hostage! I had intended to read more of this series, but have decided against it because of the epilogue nonsense.
Sexual situations may offend some readers
This practice should not be allowed by Amazon since some of us like our privacy and would like a choice about who gets our e-mail address.
It was a great community of people too and some of the best people were Julia's ins-laws. Her late husband, Michael's parents were the best and still loved her like another daughter.
The patient love that Chase had for Julia was so well drawn, that it just made you want to see that rewarded. Julia needed to stop running but I could see why she was. She was terrified to put her heart out there again.
I liked the ending but would have like to have the Epilogue added. I see that you can get that Epilogue if you sign up for the author's newsletter. I'm not a fan of doing things that way even though there is a bonus when you sign up with being able to read for free, "Sweet Surrender."
It was okay.
The eight year old Maggie's lines are odd in that they seem to be that of an adult. No eovght year old I know talks like that!
Warning: The epilogue (for which you have to subscribe to the author's newsletter) is not worth the effort. Does not add anything and does not actually move forward either . I am thoroughly irritated with the author for doing this.
I think you should know, fellow readers, that this book begins with a widowed mother standing over the graves of her husband and their two-year-old son. It's in this same scene, almost within this same moment of grief, that we're introduced to the book's Hero. Then, the book's action skips ahead five years, so that our Heroine has had a healthy length of time to grieve and move on, but I haven't, darn it! Author, you've literally JUST asked me to imagine a toddler in a coffin, maybe give me a chapter or two before reintroducing me to the Hunky Hero.
I got over this tonal shift, though. Settings are superbly described, and the Baileys make me want to bake a pie and eat it whole in their honor. That said, if you're a reader looking for steam, I made it to 63% and I haven't found it. Plenty of angst and longing, even a promising moment between the Hero and Heroine after a nasty snowstorm and some introspection on the Heroine's part... Yea, but just when their relationship -- ahem, "progresses" -- we're given an abrupt segue and then we're treated to the Hero having a vivid nightmare/flashback about the night he found the Heroine's husband and TODDLER dead. Yep. Consider yourselves warned. I believe the author even uses the words "mangled bodies."
So like I said in my review title, this book is kinda difficult to enjoy. If the author prefers to keep things clean and avoid writing out the sex scenes, that's fine. But personally, I find it really hard to enjoy anything when the tonal shifts are that abrupt. I can deal with stories that involve mourning the loss of a loved one, but having the horrific and tragic death of someone the Heroine repeatedly refers to as "my baby" shoved right in my face when I think I'm going to be getting the book's first smexiness? Ya burned me, Victoria James. Burned me bad.

Would I read others probably. Not
The characters were good, the growth was good to see. This was an easy yet poignant story about life, loss and love.
