At first, I liked this book better than the first one. Jeremy was very lovable, although I’ve begun to think this author writes better male characters than she does female ones. Hank and Jeremy were great but Leslie and Emma just okay. However, as I continued to read, I found even more I didn’t like about this one. Here are some of them:
-If Jeremy had only been out of prison for 3 months, how did he live in his dad’s old house for a while and still have stayed with his sister “several months” when he first got out? It doesn’t add up.
-Had 10 crude or curse words, including s.o.b written out.
-After kissing passionately, “he concentrated on reducing one particular body part back to normal size”
-The only reason Jeremy, a strong Christian, gives for rejecting Emma’s attempt to seduce him is he wants to make himself a better man for her first. There’s no mention of God, faith, or moral values
-Her mom would have seen five-year-old Stella wearing the necklace and asked her about it
There were also many misused words, like “am” for “a.m.,” “slow” for “slowly,” “to he and Emma,” “Emma wants us, her and I,” “Between your mom and I,” and “New Years” instead of “New Year’s.”
The ending started out to be very good, but then it ended with them talking about selling furniture – quite a letdown.
While this story is fictional, I have to believe the underlying idea of it are not; a person who has been released from prison and wants to live his life following a better path. That was Jeremy's motivation. The trick was convincing society that he had changed, namely those in his town whose lives he had destroyed.
Enter Emma, who has a VERY personal connection to Jeremy's past. With her moral compass pointing due north, she forces herself to do her professional duty, even if it means helping the man who caused her family so much grief.
However, what Emma and Jeremy did not count on was the mutual attracted that bloomed between them. Seeing how their feelings grew in spite of the struggles life threw their way really made this a very heartwarming story to read (my favorite was the very end!!!).
While I personally would have liked to see more interaction between Emma and Jeremy throughout the story, the detailed picture I gained of the other characters made the final conflict and subsequent resolution that much more gripping and, ultimately, very satisfying!
