ABOUT THE BOOK -
Bed-and-breakfast owner Lindsey Porter prays she won't run into Stephen Chase when she returns to Shelby Lake. Five years ago, the cop jilted her to marry another woman, and Lindsey fled town. But no sooner does she hit city limits than Stephen pulls her over for a broken taillight. Despite the past, he's still able to stir up Lindsey's old feelings for him. Now a widower and single dad, Stephen recognizes a second chance when he sees one. And he'll do anything to make Lindsey trust in God and take a risk for love—again.

MY REVIEW - (this is the first book in the series)
This was a good book, sweet, I liked the storyline and the characters. It was interesting enough to keep me reading.
But - it definitely was not as good as the second book "Lakeside Family". The characters were simpler the storyline was simpler but yet it was a little confusing at times. Also it was VERY predictable with little or no twists. All that said - it still was a good book and I did enjoy it!
The great thing about it is that the second book (in my opinion) is so much better that it shows that the author's writing got better. If there is a third book in this series, I will definitely be reading it.
Both books take place in the same town of Shelby Lake using many of the same characters. In this one you meet Lindsey who is still haunted by the death of her father, doesn't understand her mom's need to move on, and is unable to forgive Stephen for leaving her five years ago. You also meet Stephen who had to wrong one to right another. He had to live with his mistakes and tried to make the right decisions knowing that someone would get hurt.
This story gives you lots of chances to think - "What would I do if...?"
What would you do if you had a one night stand and that woman was now raising the child you knew nothing about? What would you do if the man you were engaged to left you for a woman he had a fling with two years ago? What would you do if you had a second chance with that man? What would you do if the memories of your father's death were controlling your decisions?
THE ALL-IN-ALL -
All in all this was a very nice Christian love story. It is very clean with good values and clean language.
Step into Shelby Lake in this Love inspired Romance series.
