Read my review of the first book, Starving Hearts, here.
I love that this book opens with the scripture where Jesus reminds us that the sick are those that need a doctor, not the well.
If you have read the first book (which I did) you know the Steven Likebridge is not a good man…or is he? There were a few brief moments in Starving Hearts where you see his brokenness and wonder if there is something more to him.
I will say Mary Hope’s obsession with him seems a bit unbelievable as they only had a couple of encounters in their life time. But I suspended disbelief and went with it.
More mystery is added in this book as well as the romance.
Overall, I really did enjoy this second book. I will say I think you will appreciate this book more if you have read the first.
