The Certain Hope contained every component I expected to read in a good romance novel with much more added. An excellent read!

This is a romance novel with something more. In the plot, in the story and in the writing style. Focused on the topics of marriage, loss and control addiction, the book develops a great and gripping plot that kept me glued from the first to the last page. I really appreciated the strong emotions surging from the dialogues and the background where the several characters work. Above all, the main protagonists, namely Tara and Luke. Two people overwhelmed by the tragic loss of their parents. Trying to overcome their grief, they organize their wedding only two weeks after their first meeting. This setting of the plot inspired me many questions about the consequences of a hasty wedding with a control addicted man. When a novel raises questions that require answers, I know that I read an excellent literary work like the one I just reviewed.

The Certain Hope is a story of hope, love and faith. It tells the story of Tara Simpkins, who is grieving the loss of her parents and dealing with a fragile heart. She finds herself falling in love at first sight. Can she move on from her grief and follow her dreams? I enjoyed The Certain Hope. I found an instant connection to Tara and Luke right from the start. This story is reminiscent of my own life story, which I am loved seeing in a book. So, I had no problem reading and turning the pages and see how it all ends for the two. I am giving The Certain Hope five plus stars. I recommend it for readers who love a beautifully, well written and clean stories. I believe it is a must read and I highly recommend it. I would love to read more like this one by EC Jackson in the future. I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

The Certain Hope is a story of love at first sight and I really enjoyed it. Tara Simpkins has had a horrific couple of months caring for and watching her parents pass away one after the other due to a fluke disease. We meet Tara as she is getting her roof replaced and waiting for Luke (whom she thinks is Andy) to let her know the job is done. Tara really likes Luke and has looked forward to seeing him the three days he worked on her roof. Tara, however, is not really a go getter. Due to some failures and bad instances in the past she is not one to take chances. Luke on the other hand also has felt the instant connection with Tara and he is not about to let his future wife get too far away. Luke was an interesting character. On one hand he was really romantic and on the other he was determined to have his own way at any cost, a bit too controlling. Tara is overwhelmed at first by his pursuit of her and his marriage proposal on their first date. All of Luke’s family and Tara’s friends think having a quick wedding is not a good idea and they express their feelings on the matter. But Luke is not taking no for an answer and Tara is not sure what to do: follow her dream with Luke or really slow things down. I liked watching both of them grow in this story, Tara stepping out of her shell and Luke loving Tara in the right way. This was a unique story that showed the positives and negatives of falling in love so quickly and throws in a few surprise twists as well. This was my first book by author Jackson and I look forward to more of her stories. I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
