This was not at all a bad book, but definitely not my favorite. It is in the genre of romance, so if romance is one of your favorite genres this is the perfect book for you.
I actually really enjoyed the characters. Mia was smart, funny and as a bonus to me she was interested in ministering to people overseas.
Jake wasn’t bad either. His character was a little more stereotypical to me. Hot, cowboy, ex-cop thing. I thought him having a hearing injury was the perfect thing for his character to not make him, you know, perfect. I have only read one other book where the main character had an impairment, and that was blindness.
Mia’s sister Lucy was a pretty easy character for me to like. Throughout the book she struggled with her Christian faith which seemed to me a real seeming struggle. By the end of the book she suddenly changed and didn’t doubt God at all. To me this appeared a little
unrealistic, but not enough to make me upset.
There was quite a bit of faith content, so that was good. I do however notice in Christian Fiction books that a scene that involves the main characters going to church is rarely shown. That doesn’t have anything personally relating to this book, but if the author or someone else is reading I would so appreciate more church content along with random prayers and the main characters doing devotions throughout the book.
I am giving this book a 2.5 stars because it was not bad, but I don’t see myself wanting to reread it. If you like romance you will like this book. I also believe this book should be for people 15 and up.

I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for my honest review.
