At man tender with his daughters as well as with Zoe and her son The issues were handled tastefully The romance was sweet and allowed to happen naturally I found myself sighing many timesAnd I thought some of the dialogue was pure ingenious by the author Just loved it Excellent book about redemption and starting over Nice easy read Very enjoyable believable For all who believe in second chances This was an adorable story of God s redemptive grace I liked that dog training was featured That s an intriguing career choice and I thought that aspect was mostly well written The girls were charming and I really enjoyed Griffin as wellA couple of things slightly hampered my enjoyment of this book The challenge of having the lawsuit against Zoe for custody of her son seemed way nderplayed After the initial shocking scene when that thread began it was hardly mentioned again and there was nothing Zoe did to battle the suit She didn t talk to a lawyer didn t attempt to gather proof that she was a fit mother nothing There were a couple of other smaller threads that felt lost or forgotten to me but the biggest ones other than the lawsuit were completed satisfactorilyAnother thing that bothered me was the lack of The Rancher and the City Girl uality copyediting This is a trend with Love Inspired books that is steadily grating against my nerves While I enjoy Ms Jordan s books I might have to stop reading themnless they get published with a new publisher It s becoming obvious that Love Inspired and its owner Harleuin doesn t care to Ice Wolves (Elementals, uphold a highality of editing in their products That is really disappointing to me as I would think Some Like It Hotter uality would trumpantityOverall this was a great story one that clearly shows how God s grace can carry one through even the worst of mistakes Forgiveness is real and I like how it was portrayed in this book I hope Ms Jordan will consider a new publisher for future books because I want of her stories without having to worry about editing issuesContent alcohol pre marital pregnancyI was not compensated for my honest revie.
