This book had so much heart in it! How would an injured war hero ever attract a well known actress, even though they've known each other since they were young? Matt Dalton is very happy when Rachel returns to their Midwest hometown for her mother's funeral but he knows she isn't sticking around. She'll sell her family's farm and go back to Hollywood, he's sure. However, he does get her to stay for awhile and considers that a win! Rachel's daughter, Becky, is so cute and she adores Matt. I liked the secondary characters also. Rachel goes through a lot of experiences during her time in her hometown and with Matt. When it's time to make a decision, what will she choose?
Merrillee Whren has written another winner with Country Blessings! Actress Rachel is a great protagonist who has turned her back on God because of some circumstances in her life but has come back home for her mother's funeral. Rachel's daughter, Becky, is delightful! Full-time school teacher and part-time farmer who was wounded in the military, Matt is a wonderful male protagonist. Matt wonders why he ever let Rachel get away. You will enjoy this sweet romance in a country setting. I received a complimentary e-book from the author. This is my honest opinion.
Sweet story filled with tenderness, love, compassion, trust, forgiveness and more. The characters are each dealing with their own stresses and need to make decisions. Will they find answers and possibly find love along the way? I enjoyed this story very much. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required.
