According to my friend, Julie, Sweetwater Gap is a 5-star book! Check out her review here:
“I truly enjoyed Sweetwater Gap! Denise Hunter had me hooked right away. I especially like how Hunter weaves some mystery into the lives of the characters and sprinkles these throughout the book. Josie Mitchell is a sweet person who is also very hurt and confused about her past. She cannot escape her past “demons” and yet does a superb job of trying to run from them. I found myself getting frustrated with her choices at times, yet I needed to keep reading to find out what would happen next.
Josie has a very stable family in her sister, brother-in-law, and aunt. Hunter paints a great picture of a family that is there for one another. I enjoyed feeling like part of that family as they shared meals together and worked together in the orchard. This is the type of book that is hard to put down! A sequel would be great, as I would love to spend more time with the Mitchell family.” J.H.
About the Author ~
Denise lives in Indiana with her husband Kevin and their three sons. In 1996, Denise began her first book, a Christian romance novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books often contain a strong romantic element, and her husband Kevin says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!
About the Book~
A story of new beginnings from best-selling Romance for GoodTM author Denise Hunter.
When Josephine’s family insists she come home to help with the harvest, the timing works. But her return isn’t simple benevolence-she plans to persuade the family to sell the failing orchard.
The new manager’s presence is making it difficult. Grady MacKenzie takes an immediate disliking to Josephine and becomes outright cantankerous when she tries talking her family into selling. As she and Grady work side by side in the orchard, she begins to appreciate his devotion and quiet faith. She senses a vulnerability in him that makes her want to delve deeper, but there’s no point letting her heart have its way-he’s tied to the orchard, and she could never stay there.
A brush with death tears down Josephine’s defenses and for the first time in her life, she feels freedom-freedom from the heavy burden of guilt, freedom to live her life the way it was intended, with a heart full of love.
