Falling in love with Daisy was easy for Jack. But finding the courage to tell her becomes problematic when his secret feelings lead to even bigger complications.

After two years of counseling sessions with Daisy Pendleton, Pastor Jack McReady has earned a permanent spot in her life as a spiritual leader—and nothing more. Jack would never risk losing her trust by exposing the depths of his heart, but he’s hopelessly in love with her.

Daisy loves her southern small-town life and her job at her family-run flower shop, but she doesn’t have the thing she longs for most: someone to share it with. Her recent foray into online dating has been a disaster—until she meets TJ.

Jack could kill his friend Noah for using his initials and some indistinct photos to set up a profile on the dating app Daisy is using. But when he’s finally afforded the opportunity to show her a different side of himself, he’s sucked into the plan before he has time for second thoughts.

Online, Daisy shares some of her greatest fears with TJ, but in person, Jack and Daisy are spending more time together. When a devastating family secret surfaces, Daisy knows that only her trusted friend and counselor can bring her comfort. Jack wants nothing more than to be both men for Daisy, but revealing his secret will prove to be the ultimate test of Daisy’s grace.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author/Harper Collins (Thomas Nelson) and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.

A long time fan of Denise Hunter, I was so excited to read this one. I loved the other books in this incredibly written series, and getting to read Pastor Jack’s story (which I love his character, namely because my own church’s pastor is Pastor Jack!) and finding out more about him and Daisy.

Once again, in trademark Hunter fashion, she blends laughter, romance, faith, grace and hope into a captivating, fun read. Her characters quickly become friends and make you feel right at home in the heart of the Blue Ridge. Each page turn, Hunter gives her readers something new and fun, making the book come to an end before you know it.

This is most definitely worthy of 4 stars and two thumbs up. You won’t soon forget Pastor Jack and Daisy, nor the familiar characters of the past books. Mrs. Hunter will keep you cocooned in the heart of the story, taking you on the fun loving ride of ups and downs, laughs and quirky characters. I know this is the final installment of the series, but I sure hope this talented author will have more just like it soon!
