This book is a clean romance and can be very inspirational.
Take a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Juliet isn’t sure what God’s plan for her life is, but the opportunity to head the Freedom and Faith small group gives her a sense of purpose and belonging. The group intends to trek parts of the Appalachian Trail in order to become closer to God through a back-to-nature approach. Juliet accompanies two other ladies on a trip, determined to succeed, but when she becomes unwell and they’re days away from their destination, her companions must dial 911. She’s compelled to accept aid from a man who looks more like a grizzly bear than a savior. Jake, the loner, wants them to go.
Except that just as Juliet and her friends are about to leave, Jake succumbs to the sickness, and Juliet must once again save the day. She meets a man with a heart and a history in the process. Her inability to lead the group inspires her to redouble her attempts to be needed, and she’s eager to assist Jake in more ways than one. When she hears about an opening at the medical clinic in Hollow Creek, she applies, knowing it will offer her a reason to stay in town and allow her to assist Jake with his life back. Her tactics aren’t always spotless, but she has the correct intentions. The walls come crumbling down when Jake discovers the truth. Can they sort out their differences by mucking through the past and their own issues?
I loved this story. I loved every page of it. Every chapter was exciting. This is my first book from this author and I can’t wait to read more from this series.
