Dawn Crandall brings another amazing story to life in the Everstone Chronicles. From the back: Violet Hawthorne is beyond mortified when her brother Ezra turns their deceased parents' New England country inn into a brothel to accommodate the nearby lumberjacks but when Violet's own reputation is compromised, the inn becomes the least of her worries. In an effort to salvage her good name, Violet is forced into an engagement with a taciturn acquaintance&, Vance Everstone.
As she prepares for a society wedding, Violet learns that her brother had staked her hand in marriage in a heated poker game with the unsavory Rowen Steele, and Ezra had lost. Now Rowen is determined to cash in on his IOU.
With danger stalking her and a new fiancé who hides both his emotion and his past, Violet must decide who to trust, and who to leave behind.
A mark of a good writer is when you think they are going to path a but then surprise you and you are suddenly on path b. Dawn Crandall leads me on a merry chase every time in her stories. The only thing I can predict is that I will be wrong, ha!
Every book of hers gets better and better. I find myself burning dinner, forgetting laundry, and when my daughter's developmental ped walked in the room I asked her to just let me finish "this last paragraph". Luckily, she has a good sense of humor (and is also a fan of the books)!
With a beautiful and rich message of God's redeeming love and forgiveness, lifelike characters that jump off the page, kissing scenes that were amazing while still keeping it clean, and a dash of mystery you will find yourself enjoying this fourth installment.
To make things even better we have a giveaway going on! Enter here!
