My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.

Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.

It isn’t long before Rachel has two men — a handsome CPA and the youth pastor — seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn’s attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.

As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.– Description from goodreads

 

My Thoughts

This book has mysteries going both directions..into the past and back to the present. I was very happy with this read. In the beginning I was sure I would have it all figured out by a few chapters in. Then I thought maybe by the half-way point. Nope. Took me until the very end to understand all the complexities in this book!

The author has created a really entertaining cast of characters in this novel. The main character is pretty tough, but also feminine and easy to grow attached to. The thoughts she expresses are often funny and right on target, many times they were the kind of things I would think myself.

If you like novels where the romance is evenly paced and the characters actually take the time to get to know one another before suddenly being madly in love, you will appreciate the style with which Kathi Macias has written this. I particularly enjoyed Rachel. She was totally different than I would have expected when first reading the details about this book, and it was a pleasant surprise to see something unexpected.

Perfect for an afternoon away from work with a cup of tea and a blanket! This story is so well paced and enjoyable that you just don’t want to put it down.

This review is based on a digital ARC provided by the publisher.
