For Lexi Franklin, returning to Trinity Lakes feels a little like running home with her tail between her legs.

But what's a girl to do, when her life has been turned upside down on the other side of the world? She needs a place to regain hope and healing - just didn't count on meeting a cowboy whose own battered heart might need nursing back to health too.

Jackson Reilly has his own set of troubles, between caring for his ranch, his mom, and the black hole of finances. So when a pretty redhead with a sassy tongue offers some distraction - and a potential solution to one of his most pressing concerns - he's not going to say no.

But as they spend time together, questions soon rise about their future, and whether faith can truly win over fears. Will Jackson be able to save his ranch, and his hopes and heart, before Lexi returns to Australia?

This book takes place in Eastern Washington, which is my home so it was neat to picture the story taking place nearby. Trinity Lake is a beautiful fictional place and this story was sweet and heartfelt. The main characters definitely had issues to work through and I enjoyed seeing faith play a central part of the story. Lexi, with her traumatic past, had to deal with overcoming difficulties and making life changing decisions. She leaned heavily on God for these things, which is exactly what I enjoy reading about, and is such a good reminder to us all.
