Megann Reilly returns home to Wildwood, Tennessee to help nurse her estranged mother back to health. She's grateful for her newfound job as an administrative assistant at Wildwood Community Church…until she runs into Colton Kendrick, the bad-boy-wannabe who broke her heart.

Colt's job as Youth Director at the church is a cavernous stretch from his high school days as the town's privileged rich kid. The death of his sister has left him with a young niece to raise and an unruly puppy to tame. He's not the self-centered person who once hurt Megann, and all he wants is a chance to prove to her the man he’s become—and to love her.

Is it true that time heals all wounds, or has Colt found Megann…only to lose her again?

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

This was my first Mary Manners book and it absolutely will not be my last. I knew, from page 1, that I was not putting this book down until I finished, and I was right. Less than 24 hours later and I was done. And I wanted more. I wanted to be lost in this story of Proven Love forever!

These characters. Oh, how I loved these blessed characters. They dealt with real life issues, issues that had me tearing up because I often felt like it was exactly what I went through years ago. These issues absolutely needed to be a part of the story to fully appreciate the meaning of the story. As someone who has been in Meg’s shoes, I appreciated the strength and conviction that Manners chiseled into her character. And Colt. Oh, my! How I loved his devotion his sister, little Suzie, and to Meg.

This is a beautifully and tenderly woven story of letting the pain of the past go. It is one not to be missed by anyone! The messages are vibrantly woven into the story, the love shines bright through the characters, and Manners show us that not everyone is the same, but to Him, we are just who we need to be and we don’t need to lose sight of that. A magnificent, 5 star love story for the keeper shelf, for sure!
