A great contemporary romance with a mystery thrown in!
This is a stand-alone story. A number of the secondary characters were also in the previous books in the series.
I love the main characters in this book. Sierra, her son, Trey, and Spencer are easy to understand and relate to. Sierra has a lot of emotional baggage that she needs to work through that really affects her interaction with people now. She is really trying to work on it with God’s help.
The mystery is mild but woven throughout the story. I really like the fact that it isn’t the whole focus, but it also isn’t pushed aside and ignored.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series. This is a great wrap-up to the series and I’m giving it a rating of 5 stars. I highly recommend it.
