This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Coulter and Harrigan Family series comes the first novel in a compelling contemporary romance series about unexpected love, second chances, and hope reborn...
After years of living in fear of her husband, Amanda Banning has left him and moved to Mystic Creek, Oregon, for a fresh start. But she’s having a tough time providing for herself and her six-year-old daughter. Writing her secret yearnings on slips of paper and sending them into the wind helps her cling to the hope that things will get better…and that she can find happiness again.
Jeb Sterling has no idea that the handwritten messages he finds scattered across his land are the first hints that his life is about to change. Nor does he understand why he feels so compelled to help Amanda Banning and her daughter when a cold snap leaves them temporarily homeless. Maybe he’s inspired by Amanda’s courage or perhaps by her beautiful brown eyes. Either way, the man who once renounced love suddenly finds himself willing to do anything for the pair. Amanda seems to have given up on her dreams, but Jeb refuses to quit until he makes her every wish come true...

A little long
I often find the romantic hero too good to be true but Jeb was over the top. A working class single guy with a seeming unlimited supply of money. Predictable plot. Chloe's character was well written. I found a odd dichotomy between the religious overtones of the book and the gun toting. I did not like the guns hidden around the house with a child present. Some of the dialogue was stilted, less like two people actually talking.
