Overview

In small town Dahlonega, Georgia, Annie Carver, a sophomore at Dahlonega University, is finally putting the shattered pieces of her life back together, four years after her mother's death.

A shy girl, who never allowed herself to get serious about anyone, suddenly finds herself captivated by the mysterious guy, Dan Wilson, who walked into her Sociology class on that rainy, spring morning. His good looks and unapproachable demeanor piques her curiosity and she soon finds herself thinking about him relentlessly.

A sudden twist of fate forces them to work together on an assignment that brings them closer than they ever imagined. Their mutual attraction develops into a love that leaves Annie feeling nervous and overwhelmed. Dan is determined to win her over, but his hidden secret pushes her farther away.

Can he trust her enough to open his heart or will he sacrifice their love and the assignment?

I am not much of a causual reader, so when I got Tracey Sutton's, "The Assignment", I wasn't sure if I'd find the time to read it. Was I surprised. The story drew me in and I found myself really enjoying it. So much so, that when I didn't finish it on my Thursday night flight, I took Friday afternoon off to complete it. This is a story I will have my daughter read when she becomes a teenager. It really dives deeply into the thoughts and feelings of a girl (Anne) who wonders if she should open her heart to a boy in her college class. While college may seem a bit late in today's society, for a first love, there are good reasons for her late blooming. The story translates easily to a high school and I would recommend it to parents with a 12 to 16 yesr old daughter. Her values are based on her Christain beliefs. While the story mentions going to church and singing in the choir, I never found it to be heavy handed or preachy. The message of the book seems to be take a chance, meet new people and look past your preconceptions. It will lead you to find more of the beauty in life.

The book is subtle in the way it leads you into each character. This is a good way to present the book because it makes you unsure of how the book could end, so many possibilities. Love the cover, which from the book could come from a couple of different possibilities. I believe this is an excellent book considering this is the first time the writer has published. I would highly recommend this book. Is it possible that Tracey Sutton will write a second book or better yet, a second series to this book?

This story reminds me of myself and my best friend, and the year I fell in love. I think Tracey wrote a part of me in this story. Her characters are true and believable. Conversations between characters remind me of ones I've had. I felt totally connected to this story. Tracey tells the tale of a young woman falling in love for the first time with a mysterious edge to the plot. I find myself wondering what will happen next, what is going on, will it end like I want? I laughed and cried. This is a heartwarming story that hits close to home. When will the next chapter come?
