Back Cover:

Rachel Stone's bad luck has taken a turn for the worse. With an empty wallet, a car's that's spilling smoke, and a five-year-old son to support, she's come home to a town that hates her. But this determined young widow with a scandalous past has learned how to be a fighter. And she'll do anything to keep her child safe -- even take on. . .

Gabe Bonner wants to be left alone, especially by the beautiful outcast who's invaded his property. She has a ton of attitude, a talent for trouble, and a child who brings back bad memories. Yet Rachel's feisty spirit might just be heaven-sent to save a tough, stubborn man.

Welcome to Salvation, North Carolina -- where a man who's forgotten what tenderness means meets a woman with nothing to lose. here two endearing lovers will set off on a funny, touching journey of the heart. . .to a place where dreams just might come true.

My thoughts:

I like SEP's stories. This one is not one of my favorites, but I liked it. The thing is, there wasn't anything I didn't like about it, but it was all pretty good. I liked Rachel. I loved Gabe. He was such a good tortured hero. I liked Ethan too, and his Clint Eastwood, and Oprah Gods talking to him. I couldn't help but feel like I've read this before. None of it, seemed new, and fresh. Maybe I read something else that was very similar, but I knew who the antagonist was, and where the hidden treasure would be. So for that I can't give it a really high score. It'll get a soft 4 stars.
