FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of the author’s virtual blog and it was sent to me in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.



  1. Mason - Thanks for your review. Sometimes it really is nice to read a book where the author explores the "What if..." possibilities ("What if we'd stayed together?"). Sounds like a very positive and upbeat book.

  2. There's nothing like a good love story to settle in with ... Best wishes to Karen on her latest release!

  3. I've seen that book around somewhere... thanks for the review!

  5. Clarissa--This is book 2 in my Reunion Brides series. Enjoy!

  6. Margot--The fun of being a writer is developing the "what ifs?"
