Little by little, Ashton and Jenna kept being thrown together, and through that, forging a friendship. But, when an issue of trust comes up again, Jenna feels her heart tested. Once again, truth is revealed and Jenna and Ashton must learn that love isn't easy--sometimes it's messy, forgiveness must be complete and without reservation, and trusting God to help one find His Plan isn't easy, but it is necessary for a "picture perfect love."
This story reminds us how important it is to let God's Plan work through the messy stuff in life in order to find the long term love with a partner. Forgiveness and trust are as essential as love, and Walking in Faith will get each of us through anything. I highly recommend this beautifully written story!
This is Ash and Jenna's story. I like how we get to explore both Ash and Jenna's thoughts and feelings. I think McClone does a great job of showing the characters struggle with what is most peoples natural reaction would be and for them to also be willing to listen to God and learn how to forgive and move forward.
I really enjoyed this second chance story, and I appreciated the message that God has a plan and we just do not always realize what that plan is.
I look forward to reading more of the books in this series (by different authors.)
I struggled with this story because I genuinely liked Jenna. I am also a sucker for second chance love. I was behind Jenna and Ash finding their way back to each other and falling in love again. I felt like both had made big changes in their lives and were coming back to the table with a new perspective. However, relationships are about trust and faith and when Ash betrays Jenna's trust again, I personally had a hard time getting behind them. The way Ash was so quick to not believe her again made me question his growth. I understand forgiveness and did applaud Jenna for finding it in her heart to forgive again, but I would have been reluctant to tell her to trust again.
So for the most part, I did like this story. It is a sweet second chance love story. I just couldn't get behind them for a third time.
Jenna Harrison is a wedding photographer for her own company, Picture Perfect Photography in Sweetwater, Washington. But her own love life hasn’t been as successful as the many couples she photographs. Two years ago, Jenna was left at the alter by who she thought was the love of her life, her own HEA, Ashton Vance. Ashton was running for public office and when a picture was posted to Facebook that made him a laughing stock and cost him his candidacy, he blamed Jenna and canceled the wedding and walked out of her life.
Ashton now has his dream job working for a law firm that is his perfect fit. Losing the candidacy was the best thing that ever happened to him. And now, two years later, Ashton’s sister, Amber, has admitted that it was her that posted the picture of him, not Jenna after all.
“If he’d only listened to her, but he’d thought he knew best and put his belief behind his family instead of his fiancé.”
Now his sister wants Jenna to photograph her own wedding but will Jenna ever accept his apology? Two years is a long time. As soon as he sees Jenna, he realizes what has been missing from his life that has kept him from moving forward. It is Jenna. He is so impressed with the woman she has become. She has found a new church and her faith has blossomed along with her self confidence and her business. But will she ever give him a second chance?
“He should have believed Jenna. He should have stood by her. He should have done things – everything – differently.”
Although Jenna is a completely different woman now, she still has her wedding dress she was supposed to wear hanging in the back of her closet. So has she really moved on? As she and Ashton spend time together, something blooms again within her heart. With the help of Ashton’s meddling sister, a shared berry cobbler, and being stuck in a gazebo during a bad thunderstorm, second chances become a reality.
It must be the magic of Melissa’s words that made me fall so completely in love with Jenna and Ashton. I have to be truthful in that I had my reservations about Ashton. He hurt her so badly. But as Jenna accepts him back into her life and forgives him it was obvious that he was the only man for her. This story warmed my heart and made me smile as I hope it will do for you.
“There’s always a plan. Not yours or mine, but His.”
