The day his son was born, Jude Rebel knew he was meant to be a father. That was why he had to stop the adoption. How could he give away his own flesh and blood? For twelve years, Jude has kept his secret. Until Paige Wheeler comes home to Horseshoe, regretting the decision that changed both their lives forever.
At eighteen, all Paige wanted was to escape her Texas town and troubled, hardscrabble life. Her ticket out cost her dearly. Now she has a chance to make things right. Finding out Jude has been raising their child is only the beginning. Is it too late for forgiveness? Or have they all been given a second chance?
Starting over right where you began might not be this sweet, but for Paige and Jude, it just might be.
I know when I pick up a book by Linda Warren, I’m going to get a great story. There’s always a strong sense of family and love, and I cheer for the characters. In the case of this book, I couldn’t get enough of Paige and Jude. Ms. Warren writes well and kept me right in my seat needing to know what would happen next.
Jude and Paige have chemistry and it’s evident, even when things aren’t going right for them. That’s what I love about the both of them. They never give up. Okay, so there are bleak moments. What book doesn’t have those? But it’s how Paige and Jude get past them is the core of the story. I loved it. I’m glad I read this book and can’t wait to go back and read the other stories. I can’t wait for Phoenix to get his book, too.
If you want a book filled with heart and family, then this might be the story for you. Highly recommended.
