Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Romance with Religious or Spiritual Elements, 2017

Former bad girl Katie Stone can feel the weight of her reputation settle over her as she drives home for the first time in years. Feeling deeply guilty about her past mistakes, Katie wants to do the right thing for once. But the small town where she grew up is not nearly as forgiving as she'd hoped. Despite it all, she's determined to help her parents cope with her mother's recent illness, and Katie finds a surprise ally in the man next door. 

Asher Powell never minded being the son of a small-town pastor until a recent breakup leaves him wounded by lifelong members of his church. He remembers his new neighbor as a mean-spirited high school troublemaker, but he senses that her newfound faith and desire for forgiveness are sincere. 

Through an unexpected friendship, two people from different worlds find peace, hope, and a second chance they never dreamed was possible.

Loved this book!

Finally a book that tells a story but doesn't feel the need to use foul language to do it. Loved the characters and the story line from beginning to end!

One of the best

One of the best real life situations that occur everyday and how they can be redeemed and how single moments can affect your life until the end. Well written and great character building, I felt like I know them

Beautiful story

This is a beautiful story of love a redemption. The story of Katie, and Asher, who find each other at a time where they both realize that We can't find forgiveness without forgiving ourselves first. Through their faith they find love and they learn that our past is not a chain holding us back, but what forges our future.
Excellent narration.

Absolutely Amazing

I am speechless. This book was one of the best audio book I've listened to in a very long time. The story, narration, ending, and everything in between. First time listening to this author and it won't be my last.

i wanted to give it a better review but couldn't

i like this book. the characters were great and the character arc was wonderfully done. every character had a great story and reason for being there.
i wanted to give it a better review but the couple went too deep. too detail with the physical part. they seemed to miss the emotional part of the relationship because they wanted to be physical. they never did anything but it still wasn't right and shouldn't be in a Christian fiction book. i want to warn Christian readers that don't like too much physical detail. i almost didn't finish it but i wanted to know how Katie's friend turned out.

My second time

"Sometimes people need more than a verse and a prayer, sometimes you just need to know they care"

Katie Stone finds that in her next door neighbor when she returns home to help her parents. Years ago, Katie was known as the bad girl of her small town and when she comes back home her long-ago friends won't let her forget her past. Katie finds a friend and support in Asher Powell.
I love how the Christian element was woven gently into this story and how God used Asher to help Katie right the wrongs of her past, forgive herself and move forward.
I also liked how there was both a female and male narrator for Katie and Asher. They did a wonderful job. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the performance.
If I could give this book more than 15 stars I would!

Stunning!

This book! I first read it a few years ago and remembered liking it. When I saw that Prime had made an Audible of it I thought I would have a listen. Again I was sucked into the complexity of the story line. The characters are dynamic, REAL and raw. Tammy weaves an exquisite tale of redemptive Grace that elicits worship and awe. A beautiful, broken life, love story that leaves you wanting more. It's a treasure!
