When a reality TV star meets the reality of life, will it be her downfall or her salvation?
Ann Stanway had it all—a starring role in a reality show, an adoring boyfriend, and a sparkling future with limitless possibilities. Until the rules changed and the life she’d thought was real no longer existed. Leaving L.A. seems like her only option, and she lands in Kentucky at a quiet Amish inn—as far removed from her past as possible. Now she knows what was missing in her life--peace, true friendship and, dare she hope, a man who accepts her for who she is--or at least who he thinks she is.
Hunter Lewis is intrigued by the new woman staying at his friend’s Amish inn. Annie appears to be what she claims, but she’s secretive and won’t open up. He’s been burned by a woman before and can’t tolerate deception. But his interest in Annie is growing, and the attraction seems to be mutual—until something happens that makes Hunter question everything he’d thought was real. Dare he risk his heart, when he’s certain Annie is keeping secrets?
Can their new romance withstand the pressure, or will Ann choose to run again?
When I first saw this book it caught my attention, than I saw that it was to become a tv movie and I just had to read it!! I love reading books than watching the movie(can’t wait till it premeres in jan!!)
Anyway this was the other book I hinted at when I said I had or was reading twobooks involving reality tv stars…..would I read more like this thats a yes…especially if this story continues!
I really enjoyed the story. I loved Annie, And kinda sorta hated Scott, but moreso his mother from the begining. I was so glad when she said enough and planned her escape!! I wish she could have taken her pa with her, the poor girl coud have used a break too.
I loved Sarah and her Quiet support and friendship she offered ann. I seriously can’t wait for more baout her! I hope whoever she ends up marrying helps her with the inn instead of siding with the bishop(and I’m almost hoping the bishops son cause even though he was quiet he seemed like he might support her efforts)
the side story about Carle I loiked it was a nice way for hunter to see ann being dselfless and helping and it was a great way for them to et to know one another and help someone together.
The book ended with a bit of closure but not enough for me so I can’t wait for more…..there better be more lol
About the Author
I love life, love my family, love writing Christian fiction–reading, riding my horse and puttering in my garden are all ways I relax. I often have my little 7 lb Chihuahua, Lacey, on my lap when I’m working–there’s nothing like a warm ball of love on your lap to act as a stress reliever!
First and foremost I’m a child of God and daughter of the King. I’ve been involved in women’s ministries for years, I’m married to a wonderful man, have two grown children, two cats, two dogs, 10 chickens and ride my son-in-law’s Arabian mare since my old mare passed in 2013. We live about 9 miles from the nearest town on 11 acres, in a peaceful setting surrounded by trees.
I started writing shortly after I turned 50, and discovered I loved it so much I don’t want to stop. I have 15 novels out & a five book set of horse novels for middle-grade girls. I write both women’s contemporary fiction, historical & contemporary romance, and horse/mystery novels for girls. One of my Western romances, Love Finds You in Sundance, WY, was awarded the Will Rogers Medallion for Western Fiction, three books have been optioned as movies, and several books have been on the ECPA best seller list.
