Short Book Description:

She can turn the head of the man who spurned her–but can she turn his heart?

When Megan McClare left San Francisco to study in Paris, no one would accuse her of being poised and pretty. But on the other side of the Atlantic, this wallflower blossomed into a beauty with big dreams. When she returns to California and accepts an internship at the district attorney’s office, she’s thrilled that her life is taking shape. But the exciting opportunity quickly loses its glow when she discovers she’ll be working alongside Devin Caldwell, who mercilessly mocked her at school–and with whom she was hopelessly enamored.

Bram Hughes is the best friend to whom Megan has always turned for support and advice. But when she seeks his counsel about working with Devin Caldwell, Bram’s vision is clouded by his sudden unwelcome attraction to a girl he had always thought of as a little sister. He advises forgiveness, but can he forgive himself for pushing the woman he loves into the arms of another man?

Author Julie Lessman draws a romantic triangle that will touch your heart in this glittering Gilded Age tale of transforming love.

My Thoughts:

Since this is the third book in the series and I’ve only read the first, this book was a bit confusing in the beginning. New characters introduced and old characters where now older.

I really did enjoy the book though. It was well written and plotted out. I do hope though that this isn’t the last book in the series as I’m not ready to let go of a series I have enjoyed so immensely.

This book made me laugh and also brought tears to my eyes as I saw a lot of myself in Meg.

If you are looking for a good Christian, not religious, series, I totally recommend this one. It’ll bring a smile to your face and also touch your heart. A romance that’s clean and uplifting, I hope you do take the time to read it.
