Neither Ryan nor Kristen know the Lord. Ryan's mother has cancer.
She seems to influence both Kristen and Ryan whose golden retriever named Sam, short for Samantha, towards fairh in God. She has an inner-strength well beyond her years. And a deep faith that keeps her moving forward. A special angel that whispers sweetness into her ear. She nearly glowed when I first saw her.
But you do. Otherwise, life would be a sad, boring existence. That would not have happened either, unless Nichole, the young two-night stand girl with coloured stripes in her hair, explained to Ryan that Kristen loved him and sobbingly turned to him when her patient died, after telling her nurse to "keep Ryan. Its nice that she finally met trustworthy men in his family. I would think that the focus of these stories could change to how happy married life can be if a couple respect God's laws of waiting to be married instead of having casual intimate relationships as both Ryan and Kristen did.

Yet, leave it to Sam to bring Ryan and Kristen together and get them to know each other on shared walks with Sam. Will it be enough to help them get past their histories and insecurities? Yes, the story framework is classic Hallmark Channel movie romance where the reader knows where the tale will end up between these two, but it is well written and craftily structured to let the reader understand the insecurities that create the light assumptions the main characters form about each other preventing them from completing the connection we know will have to eventually happen — and there is a strong body of readers and viewers who enjoy and find comfort in a well-crafted HEA romance.
Oh my, I don't know where to start, other than to say that I should have started this book on the weekend. Once I got started reading it, I didn't want to stop! I loved it!

Kristen was divorced 2 years ago and is currently in a relationship Kristen moves in next door to Ryan and they forge a very comfortable, easy friendship, largely due to Ryan's dog Sam, who take an immediate liking to Kristen. See, even the dog knows a nice person when she meets one. Deanna writes very descriptively throughout the book and because of her descriptions of the people, places and events, I was able to feel like I was a part of the story. Their emotions, love, and friendship became just as important to me as they did to Ryan and Kristen themselves.
I have read quite a few of Deanna's books but this one may be right up there as one of my favorites and it's because of Kristen and Ryan. They both are such good people and I felt very comfortable there's that word again with them. I really cared about them and I knew I would be happy for them, no matter how things turned out.

Feb 14, Kath rated it really liked it. This book was enjoyable, nothing exciting or mysterious but it made for an easy and pleasant read. Typical romance story when you pretty much know how it will end, however it was nicely written Manufactured angst Loved Sam. I had a hard time with the heroine.
I have three heroine characteristics I just really Dislike. Hypocrisy is one of them. Kristen was more than a bit hypocritical I need to like my characters. Also, friends do Not let friends drive drunk. Someone of Ryan's stellar character would have taken Jon's keys. That was a real glitch in the storyline.
Nonetheless, the book was m Manufactured angst By the time we reached the village we were quite tired and it was getting dark. Very beautiful and very interesting. We are happy to have spent the last two days with a guide. We spent those days in the Colca Canyon and Colca Valley one of the most beautiful places on earth. I hope you all get the chance to go there some day.
