About:

A jilted bride. A struggling innkeeper. And a romantic mountain getaway that changes everything

Rising Hollywood star Mia Emerson is looking for a safe place to land in the wake of a public breakup and celebrity scandal, and she finds it in the lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina—the location of her canceled honeymoon. She wants nothing more than to hide and wait for the tabloids to die down.

Soon after her arrival at the Bluebell Inn, Mia meets Levi Bennett, who runs the inn along with his two younger sisters. Drawn to one another from the start, Mia trusts Levi to keep her location from the press, and Levi confides in Mia about the precarious financial state of the inn—a secret he’s been keeping from his sisters.

When Mia and Levi discover an old journal that hints at a rare diamond necklace hidden in the inn, they set off on a treasure hunt to find the long-lost heirloom. What they don’t expect to surface are feelings they thought were safely locked away. Mia and Levi must decide if falling in love again is too big a risk—or if it will uncover a treasure of its own instead.

My thoughts:

I really liked this book. It had all the right components, broken past, romance, difficult current circumstances. And, whoa, the kisses that Denise wrote, they were very well done.

It was also nice to see Molly and Adam and again and how their relationship was progressing.

I am very excited to read about Grace’s story in the next book. She is a spitfire so I have I no doubt her story will be a good one. She’s so young too, so I can’t help but wonder how her romance will proceed.

My only complaint is one I am finding a lot. These characters are Christians but the name of Jesus was never said in this book. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

    I just read both books in this series by Denise. I love them!! These characters get under your skin and I began to care very much about them. Even Grace, I can’t wait to read her story next. 🙂

    I agree with your review, you put it so eloquenty! I too, have encountered a lack of a stronger faith thread in some of the more recent books I’ve read. I wished their relationship with the Lord would have been more prominent. It’s a major reason I read Christian fiction, I need my faith feed as well as a good, entertaining story.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I always love reading them on your blog!
