I had the pleasure of being an early reader for this book. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much given the genre (I've been a longtime reader of it but gave it up due to predictable, boring stories.) Boy, was I surprised once I dived into Candice's book! I really, really enjoyed this book. I'm usually not a fan of Christian romance novels due to lack of good storyline, character development, etc. But this book is so different from the usual. Candice wrote a great storyline with wonderful character development. I found myself tearing up at different times as the story of Huck and Arianne unfolded. I so enjoyed that it didn't all take place in a couple of days but played out over a couple of years. The story is meaty, believable, and charming. It was a delight to "follow" their story it unfolded. I sat down to read it one night and ended up staying up to finish it. I haven't done that with a book in a long time. This is a great book.
