"I have liked most of Lori Wick's books,but this book is not one I enjoyed. I had to make myself finish it. There were way too many unnecessary conversations and characters. I'm glad the people are concerned about their spiritual state, but I got extremely bogged down with all the sub characters' Bible studies,thoughts,etc. Is this book about the town people or Reece and Conner? The main couple in the book hardly had any story time for them. Characters who weren't even particular friends/relatives with the main couple had way too much page time. Also, more could have been said about Reece and Conner's personalities. I didn't think they even had a chance to get to know one another very well. The previous book was much better then this one was in my opinion. If you are looking for a good Lori Wick book to read I definitely recommend The Californians Series, The Cameron Series, The Kensington Chronicles, Sophie's Heart, Pretense, and The Princess."
