The Bound Heart by Dawn Crandall

From the publisher:
The Everstone Chronicles, Book #2
One accidental kiss from Lawry Hampton. That was all it took to throw Meredyth Summercourt's world upside down. Determined to marry the ever-elusive Vance Everstone, she simply doesn't have the time or desire to fall for her best friend Lawry Hampton. But with Vance out of the country, and with Lawry at her side nearly every day, teaching her what the world is like through the eyes of a little orphan girl named Wynn. Now Meredyth can't deny that what's holding her to Vance is nothing more than a desire to redeem herself from her past. Will she marry Vance once he returns from Europe? Or will she be strong enough to break free from the tangled web she's convinced she deserves, and accept that God's plan for her life includes redemption...and, quite possibly, Lawry Hampton?

Did you ever read Little Women?  And are you one of those who just mourned the relationship that never developed between Jo and Laurie?  Well, go read this book.  I have a weakness for best friend romances and this just fulfilled all my heart's desires.

I liked Meredyth in the first Everstone Chronicles book and wanted to read more about Lawry as well, so I was thrilled that this book was next. 

This book was also really well done about redemption and a bound heart.  I can relate to feeling tied to something in my past so strongly that it feels like I must do something because of that instead of turning to God for redemption and His plans.  I think readers will be able to connect with Meredyth in her struggles with her past and future. 

Meredyth and Lawry's chemistry and connection will draw readers in and I love who Lawry is and how he seems to grow as a character throughout the book, giving him more depth and layers. 

I received this ebook in exchange for my honest review.
