What Hope Remebers
From the publisher:
When Amy Somers loses her job as a lobbyist, she moves to Misty Willow, well aware that she's crossing bridges she'd burned years before. With all the mistakes she's made and the uncaring things she's done--even to her own family--she can hardly believe that happiness will find her, especially when Gabe Kendall, her first crush and her first kiss, rides back into her life atop a buckskin mare.
A former Marine, Gabe is at loose ends after serving a prison sentence for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He sees beyond Amy's hard exterior to the girl he once knew and loved, and he longs to see her open her heart. Yet with his vision clouded by shame for his past and fears about the future, he finds it difficult to see the path ahead.
But the memory of that long-ago kiss just may have the power to reignite a romance that brings out the best in both of them
This is the third book in the Misty Willow's series. What I have really enjoyed about each book was the redemptive power. So often in books, or series, the antagonist stay the antagonist. But with this series it delves deeper. Johnnie Alexander gives dimensions to her characters just like we have in real life. We make good and bad decisions but that doesn't define us. It is our character that makes us who we are.
Gabe will capture your attention and heart as he grounds and balances Amy Somers. Amy will continue to develop and unfold as a character that you will be able to see much of yourself in and be hopeful for what come of her life.
I received this book from the publishers. All opinions expressed are my own.
