He’s a former NFL quarterback from Florida with an injury that has put an end to his career.
She’s a penny pinching innkeeper from Washington, just trying to make enough money to care for her grandmother.
Needing to escape the media and the constant pressure to make a decision about his future, Jett Hudson escapes to a B&B in the small town of Riversong, Washington. A month of R&R in the middle of nowhere ought to do him some good. But when he arrives and has to wake the owner, who is sound asleep at her desk, he starts having second thoughts about his choice of lodging—even if her messy bun reminds him of a halo, and her soft gaze has a way of making him forget to breathe.
After a long night, and even longer day, of taking care of her grandmother, Salem Finn jolts awake to find her new guest—and financial hope—eyeing the door like he wants to make a run for it. All her exhaustion comes to the fore. How is she supposed to be a twenty-four seven caretaker and still run a prosperous business?
Sometimes the river of life takes unexpected turns. And sometimes those turns lead to angel kisses…and Riversong.
This contemporary, sweet, clean romance will take you to small-town America, where the neighbors all know each other's business, and the police chief's biggest worry is where to find his next fishing hole.
I would like to thank Lynnette Bonner for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
When I started reading this book, I realized I had already read it last summer as part of the collection Cherish, which is no longer available. But I also knew that I wanted to read it again to relive the story.
I love the tender love that Salem has for her grandmother who is dealing with dementia, caring for her despite the painful and exhausting job that it is. She has to deal with harsh criticism from the dear one who used to only give her love and compliments due to the disease that affects her mind like this. On top of this is her ex-boyfriend who is possessive, controlling and unkind and not wanting her to be with anyone but him.
Jett has such a tender heart and desires to seek God’s will for his new life. I love the way he just jumps in to help in so many ways, from helping cart boxes and furniture around to playing the guitar to help distract Salem’s grandmother. And that he is willing to not kiss Salem until he knows he can commit to her, despite the fact that he really wants to.
I’m so glad I read the book again. I enjoyed every minute despite the fact that as I read, I remember things that were coming next.
