No Possessions, No Memories, Not Even a Name!
The wounded stranger found on Jessica O'Malley's property has no idea who he is. And Jessica would be foolish to trust him after being proven so wrong about a former suitor who turned out to be a criminal. But Jessica's wariness toward the newcomer is soon turning to interest…and hope.
Until he knows his true identity, "Grant" can't make a life in this quaint Tennessee town. He certainly shouldn't be thinking so much about the feisty redhead with beautiful, guarded eyes. But even as he fights to keep a distance from Jessica, his feelings for her grow. And he can't help but wonder if he'll want to return to his old life when his past is revealed.
Smoky Mountain Matches: Dreams of home and family come true in the Smoky Mountains
A story filled with drama and puzzles, mystery, and faith that carries through all the struggles and the unknown.
The amnesia Grant is suffering from, brought both worry and humor into the tale. When a wounded stranger shows up to your door, it is with a weary mind and distress Jessica opens her home to him.
I enjoyed the few joyful moments, when they are coming up with the stories what could be Grant's past. But the constant worry of the reality, the fragile balance they were holding on to, that he could be a good guy, as well as bad, keeps the worry at the front and center.
Jessica has her own troubles, from her past relationship, that she still struggles with. The guilt and shame eating her up inside out.
While Grant is healing, they work side by side on the farm, getting to know each other, learning to trust each other. He obviously good character becomes clear to everyone.
The author paints a lovely picture of the everyday life in the little mountain town, the people, the families form a tight unit, supporting, guarding, and protecting each other. The story is not just an adorable, love story, but a great reminder that faith does carry us in the dark moments of our lives, and that God sees us, takes care of us, and has a plan for each one of us.
A touching story, filled with appealing characters, charming small town living, and love in many forms
