Jagears Delivers a Wonderfully Romantic Read with a Hero and Heroine to Cheer For

Evelyn Wisely has a heart for the orphans of Teaville and works at a local mansion that rescues children out of the town’s red-light district and gives them a place to live. But her desire to help isn’t limited to orphans. The owner of the mansion, Nicholas Lowe, is willing to help her try to get the women working in prostitution out of the district as well–if she can gain the cooperation and support of local businessmen to go against the rest of the community.

David Kingsman has recently arrived in Teaville from Kansas City to help with one of his father’s companies in town. While he plans on staying only long enough to prove his business merit to his father, he’s shown interest in Evelyn’s work and is intrigued enough by her to lend his support to her cause.

They begin with the best of intentions, but soon the complications pile up and Evelyn and David’s dreams look more unattainable every day. When the revelation of a long-held secret creates a seemingly insurmountable rift between them, can they trust God still has a good plan for them despite all that is stacked against them?

My thoughts: 

After reading the first book in this series and absolutely loving it I couldn’t wait for the next book to come out.

Melissa has a unique way of writing that weaves in ministry and serving. I love it. You might think that would be boring and I might think the same thing with just hearing it but reading her books are anything but boring.

She piles layer upon layer of plot adding new things when I think nothing new can be added and putting in a twist when I never even saw a bend coming.

Evelyn has a poor self-image, I think that is something most women can relate to, yet she is very strong and stubborn. She knows what she wants…kind of 🙂 She also has a secret and I was dying to know what it could possibly be. She seemed to innocent.

David is a wonderful hero who sees Evelyn’s wonderful qualities and wants to be more like her when it comes to his future and his father.

You can read this as a stand-alone but I highly recommend this series. I could say much more but then this review would end up being way too long.
