About the Book:
Can you ever get a second chance at your first love?
Jenna Callahan Colby thought she was content. A partner on her father’s successful ranch, she is surrounded by family and friends. But she never expected to see Nate Langley back in town–the first guy she ever noticed, the one her father sent away all those years ago.
And she never thought the attraction they felt would be as strong as ever.
Jenna’s cowboy has some healing of his own to do, though, after two tours of duty in the armed forces. With the help of good friends, strong faith, and a loving family, he hopes to put the horrors of the past behind him–and become the man Jenna deserves.
About the Author:
Sharon Gillenwater was born and raised in west Texas, and loves to write about
her native state. The author of ten novels, she is a member of ACFW and Romance Writers of America. When she’s not writing, she and her husband enjoy spending time with their son, daughter-in-law, and adorable grandson. She lives in Port Angeles, Washington.
This was wonderfully written. It is a touching story of friendship, first loves, and second chances. The author did a magnificent job at capturing me completely. I could truly feel all the things that Jenna felt. And the things that Nate went through! Man, I sure felt everything that Jenna’s cowboy did! From being scared of fire to the flashbacks, it was as if I was going through it all.
While I loved that(because that’s what makes a book fantastic!), what I loved most was the detail the author put into a veteran’s life (flashbacks, jumpiness,nightmares) and the reliance on God for strength. Those were two of the best features of this book. Reading about the flashbacks and the military life of Jenna’s Cowboy, Nate, brought me to tears. And Jenna’s reliance on God to guide her in her struggles with letting the past go and moving forward with Nate was absolutely powerful.
I would love to give this book more than 5 stars, but I can’t. What I can do is sing it’s praises and highly recommend this moving story to all those people out there who support our military and all those who want a great story that will make you laugh, cry and smile! I can NOT wait for book 2!
