Book description: "When Chantel Panetta's younger sister claims to be in love with Orlando Calarco, Chantel knows there is no hope. The Panettas and Calarcos have been sworn enemies for decades, and young love cannot heal the deep wounds between the two iron-mining families. Yet, unable to resist Isabella's pleas, Chantel agrees to help her sister spend time with Orlando...only to have a run-in with Dante, Orlando's brother.
Chantel can't deny the attraction that flares when she's with Dante. But when a tragedy occurs at the mine, is there any hope that the hatred that has simmered between these two families might be resolved? Or will Chantel and Isabella's hope for love be buried amidst decades of misunderstanding?"
My review: I love reading books by Tracie Peterson. She has become one of my favorite authors, and this book is just another example of why I look forward to reading her books. Once again, she has created a plot with true-to-life characters and circumstances. I was able enter into the lives of Chantel and her sister, Isabella, and feel their frustration. This is a book that has excitement, adventure, suspense, and love. I found myself turning the pages faster to see what would happen next, but at the same time would have loved to have stretched it out so it would last longer. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
