When mountain guide Micah Gallagher is hired by the spirited Hanna Alexander to help raise revenues for her failing family lodge, a high-country adventure filled with love, intrigue, and romance ensues.

Almost immediately upon meeting the mysterious mountain guide Micah Gallagher, Hanna Alexander betrays her own professional ethics and finds herself enamored by the secretive and carefully guarded Micah. When the two unexpectedly fall in love, Micah is forced to face his past and the hidden places that haunt him—and Hanna must address her fears and determine if forgiveness can make way for love.

Has fate brought the two together, or will circumstances tear them apart? What exactly are the secrets that Micah guards so closely? And will love and forgiveness prevail against the complications of their pasts so they can make way for a future together?

Teeming with suspicion and intrigue, this Grand Teton adventure examines the struggle to forgive in the midst of conflicting emotional entanglements, fears of the heart, and the inevitable agony of love.

I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to read a romantic story without it going over the top.

I liked this well enough until the end. I understand that Hunter is trying to make a point about forgiveness, but I think she misses the mark. There is a difference between embracing forgiveness and romanticizing a terrible crime - and I think Hunter is skating towards the latter. I generally do like Hunter though and I think this was an anomaly for her. I'm looking forward to reading her other books and hoping that she uses better judgment in her plotting next time.

Powerful story. Not light-reading material, that's for sure. But a great story about forgiveness and mercy, and relying on God during the difficult times in your life.

Where do we draw the line? Are some things too big for us--or for God--to forgive? Denise Hunter tackles this question in a way that shows God's ability to transform broken lives. A highly recommended read.

It took a brave author to write a story like this! But she pulled it off with flying colors. The climax is stunning and emotional, and exemplifies the meaning of grace. An incredible story of healing and forgiveness, love and redemption.

What a book! It has been a while since I could hardly put a book down until it was done. This is one of those books. I cannot wait to read the next one. This is the first one of a new series. Denise Hunter is excellent. I also loved the fact that a Beth Moore Bible study was used as part of the story, I am currently going through a Beth Moore Study, and that was an interesting element. Give this one a shot!

Mending Places interested me from the beginning. I read the back cover and wanted to see how the author worked through the conflict. It was a bit slow to start (for me,) but once I got into it, I couldn't put it down. The conflict with her sister's marriage was realistic and gut-wrenching, and I wish it had turned out with a happier ending, but hey, that's not reality. In regards to Hanna, I liked the way the author brought everything to a climax toward the ending. I felt Micah's pain as well as Hanna's. It is a wonderful story of forgiveness. Though it may seem unrealistic to some, I've known people in weirder situations. I liked the redemption piece and felt like the author handled the resolution beautifully. I also like the passion and edgy feel to the story. Kudos!
