This novel is funny, which might be why it caught me unawares and made me bawl and bawl and bawl even after I finished. I love Caroline because she's both spunky and compassionate. She's both fearful and brave. She has great chemistry with the hero, but she also sets a boundary many women can learn from.
I loved the motorcycle-riding Maddox even before I fell for my Harley-loving husband. He lives by grace, not by judgement, and he helps Harriet forgive herself for not being the perfect pastor's daughter.
My mom read this one too and called it provocative. Not because of the kissing-there's actually not much of that. But because Claire learns people can be good people even if they don't agree with her definition of good.
I couldn't keep from laughing at the side character whose dentures were stolen by a seagull when their ship docked in Seattle. Especially when the hero has to get married to keep his land, and this side character is the only one available to wed.
Read them for yourselves, and nominate new books for me to read!!!
