In Firefly Valley - Texas Crossroads 2 - by Amanda Cabot

About the book:

She's lost her dream job--but has she found the man of her dreams?
Devastated by a downsizing, Marisa St. George has no choice but to return to the small Texas town where she grew up. Though it means a giant step backward, she accepts a position as business manager at the struggling Rainbow's End resort. The only silver lining: Blake Kendall, a new guest who might make her believe in love at first sight. But will Marisa's dreams of happily-ever-after be turned upside down when she discovers Blake's real identity?

This warm and witty story of dreams deferred and mistaken identity will have you believing in second chances.

My review:

This was an enjoyable romance with a strong emphasis on forgiveness and honesty.  I liked that both Marisa and Blake had tough childhoods that had resulted in some issues they needed to work through.  Neither one was perfect.  There were some sweet romantic moments between them and with another couple as well.  I found the running of the resort to be interesting, especially when they're trying to get it off the ground.  Faith was a very important part of the story and it was wonderful to see some of the transformations that took place.  I liked how it was clear that only God can change a person and that we need His help.  It seemed like both couples fell for each other pretty quickly.  I would have liked to see the suspense drawn out a little more.  I would recommend this book if you like romance.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
