When Amy Somers loses her job as a lobbyist, she moves to Misty Willow, well aware that she’s crossing bridges she’d burned years before. With all the mistakes she’s made and the uncaring things she’s done–even to her own family–she can hardly believe that happiness will find her, especially when Gabe Kendall, her first crush and her first kiss, rides back into her life atop a buckskin mare.
A former Marine, Gabe is at loose ends after serving a prison sentence for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He sees beyond Amy’s hard exterior to the girl he once knew and loved, and he longs to see her open her heart. Yet with his vision clouded by shame for his past and fears about the future, he finds it difficult to see the path ahead.
But the memory of that long-ago kiss just may have the power to reignite a romance that brings out the best in both of them.
Woo boy! Our leading lady Amy is one prickly gal! She is haunted by her past mistakes and feels unworthy, lonely, and cast aside despite the presence and support of her family. When it comes to fight or flight, Amy lashes out like an injured, cornered she-bear.
Former boy-next-door Gabe is all grown up with painful secrets of his own. He returns to the only place that feels like home and unexpectedly discovers his first love living right across the road. Gabe is compassionate, patient, and kind-hearted but he’s convinced his future is uncertain at best.
This sweet rural romance has an intriguing mystery thread and lots of down home country living fun. Readers will enjoy catching up with characters from the first two books while getting to know Amy and Gabe. What Hope Remembers is a lovely conclusion to the Misty Willow series!
I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.
