Former bad girl Katie Stone can feel the weight of her reputation settle over her as she drives home for the first time in years. Feeling deeply guilty about her past mistakes, Katie wants to do the right thing for once. But the small town where she grew up is not nearly as forgiving as she’d hoped. Despite it all, she’s determined to help her parents cope with her mother’s recent illness, and Katie finds a surprise ally in the man next door.
Asher Powell never minded being the son of a small-town pastor until a recent breakup leaves him wounded by lifelong members of his church. He remembers his new neighbor as a mean-spirited high school troublemaker, but he senses that her newfound faith and desire for forgiveness are sincere.
Through an unexpected friendship, two people from different worlds find peace, hope, and a second chance they never dreamed was possible.
Wow. This was another hard-hitting, sweet, thought-provoking Christian Romance by Tammy L. Gray. She covered some hard topics but did them so well and believably. I’ve read other books that deal with the “good” character falling in love with the previously “bad” character where you really don’t get it and the “good” character is just too good and forgiving to be believable. Asher and Katie were portrayed in an amazing way and their relationship was believable.
