Exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite.
After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now.
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100% focused on the present. But when he's diagnosed with an inherited condition, he's forced to dig into the secrets of his past and his adoption as an infant, enlisting Nora to help him uncover the identity of his birth mother.
The more time they spend together, the more this pair of opposites suspects they just might be a perfect match. However, John's already dating someone and Nora's not sure she's ready to trade her crushes on fictional heroes for the risks of a real relationship. Finding the answers they're seeking will test the limits of their identity, their faith, and their devotion to one another.

Sap over Substance From a Very Gifted Writer
There was simply just way too much romantic sap (and that coming from a complete romantic) and mush and drama. I felt like I was listening to the inner turmoil of a teenager, rather than a grown woman.
The narrator was FANTASTIC. Compelling and humorous in all the right places.
I wish I could say it was. I loved how the book began, the characters, the idea of the historic village, and the overall message of the story. But as the hours went by, the romantic melodrama and sap and sensuality, started taking it over more and more. Instead of improving the story, this clouded what could have been meaningful with hormones and romantic drama that a teenager could have easily owned.
The writer is VERY gifted and has a fantastic sense of humor. Maybe this story is exactly what someone else needs to hear...I wouldn't be surprised at all at that. Personally though, I really look for books with substance that strengthen my relationship with the Lord. As a single woman, I try to be very careful with what I allow myself to see and hear. Sadly, this one would have been a stumbling block with the sensual drama that seemed to only escalate. As much as I wanted to continue listening to it, I had to cut it off. Perhaps if I'd had the paperback, I would have just been able to skip over those parts, but that's a little hard with audio, especially when it seemed to consume more and more of the text.
