Officer Ashley Walters is running from tragedy. She finds a job in small town Montezuma and hopes to hide there to lick her wounds. But Emma and Patrick become her friends. Before she knows it she has two men vying for her attention, someone targeting her friends and a town revitalization that's getting out of control.
I had a like/dislike relationship with this book. I didn't hate it and I didn't love it. But there were things I liked and disliked. The book seemed to move very slowly and things weren't very clear at times. This is book one in the series, but I felt a bit lost when certain characters were introduced, like perhaps, I should have already known something about their background.
On a positive note, I liked the main character Ashley and felt the book had a strong message of forgiveness and healing. My final conclusion - It's an interesting book, but not thrilling or gripping.
I received this book free of charge via a contest on The Bookclub Network.
