Jessica and Blake Summers know a thing or two about what it’s like to be the latest and greatest news on the vine. Their thirteen year marriage has had more than its fair share of heartache and loss. Then the past comes knocking, in the form of a teenage girl, a daughter Blake never knew existed. The news sets the Merryton grapevine on fire.
In the wake of this revelation and firestorm, Blake and Jessica are forced to reevaluate their own relationship and priorities, all while learning that raising a teenage girl is not for the faint of heart. But in the midst of the chaos and uncertainty, they discover that Madeline may just be what the doctor ordered to heal their broken hearts and mend their own tattered relationship.
Will they have the courage to look forward and find a greater love than they could ever imagine? Or will past hurts and the town grapevine tear them apart?

This book grabbed me from page one and by the end of Chapter One, I was captivated. Sure, I had chores to do, errands to run, and my own writing, but how could I put the book down when it just kept getting better?
So I didn’t. (Okay, I did have to go to sleep but I picked it back up once I woke up.) I kept reading until I reached the end. And now it’s over. And now I wish it was a little longer. Or that I could have a sequel to see how Jessie and Blake are doing. Oh wait, I didn’t even share my feelings on the characters, did I?
So Jessie Belle has had her share of heart aches. Even though I have not experienced the type of loss she has, I identified with her so much. My heart just went out to her and I had to keep reading to see if she was learning how to cope in this messed up world we live in.
And Blake. To me, he was the stereotypical guy. Not the fantasy guy we read about, but the one who could be your spouse, brother, friend, you get my drift. But what made Blake a hero in my book was his willingness not to give up on his marriage. Y’all that works for me. And of course it helps that he cleans up after himself (if you’re married and read the book you get it).
I could literally go on and on about this book, but then I’d enter the realm of possible spoilers and I don’t want to do that. So I’ll tell you Blake and Jessie are real people. You’ve probably run into them and didn’t realize who they were, because do we ever show our deepest feelings for the world to see?
So all this to say: READ THE BOOK! (And I’m not yelling, just highly prompting and encouraging you to hit that Kindle link I put in the “About the Book” section.
I give this a 5 out of 5 stars!
