And when faced with a choice, will Suzanna take the step to find true love or be fooled by charm?" (book description)
I love a good story set in the old west when things were simpler and life was about relationships. People knew how to work hard and build their dreams with their own two hands. As the saying goes, "they were simpler times".
In this book, we watch Jake pine for his lost love and then learn to move on from that to find the love that God had for him all along. I remember in the last book, Elements of Change, when we first met Jake. He was just a bit character in that book, but here we finally find out the story behind Jake Holland and I personally began to love his character. I felt sorry for him when he had to watch the woman he loved marry another man, I cheered for him when he found a way to make life worth living again, and I was very happy for him when life took a turn he never imagined.
The characters were very well thought out, the situations believable, and the era it was set in was accurate from what I could tell. I love the way Karina Harris, the author, puts her heart and soul into her stories.
This, like all the books by Karina Harris, was very worth the read!Subscribe to The Price of Trust by Email
