Book description: "Mallory Hale's life quickly veers off course when she falls hopelessly in love. After a whirlwind romance, Mallory finds herself leaving the bustle and action of Capitol Hill for the remote town of Moses Lake, Texas--with husband, stepson, and a U-Haul in tow.
A sweet, mishap-filled journey into marriage, motherhood, and ranch living ensues, and Mallory is filled with both the wonderment of love and the insecurities of change. But what she can't shake is the unease she feels around her husband's new boss, Jack West. Jack's presence--and his mysterious past--set her on edge, and when hints of a scandal emerge, Mallory finds herself seeking answers... and comes to realize that the middle-of-nowhere home she wasn't sure she wanted is the very place she'll risk everything to save."
My review: This was a book that was hard for me to get into. As I continued to read I was drawn into the story, but it took me awhile. I did really enjoy the character development of Mallory. Her personality continued to grow throughout the story. The mystery of Jack West wasn't completely revealed, so it would seem another book should be written. Even though the beginning of the book was slow for me, the author, Lisa Wingate, did a great job in developing her story and the mystery surrounding the plot. I was disappointed when it ended and would like to read a sequel to find out more about Mallory, the small town, Moses Lake, and the mysteries surrounding them. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
