Author: Janine Rosche
Publisher: Berkley Books
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Two people scarred by past trauma have a chance to write a new chapter in their lives, overcome loss, and find love in the third entry in the Madison River Romance series. 

Screenwriter Cecilia "Blue" Walker is victim to life's worst plot twists. Having lost her daughter to the depths of the Madison River and her husband to the arms of another woman, she finds herself yearning for something to restore her brittle faith and once-vibrant career. 

Hope arrives in the form of her childhood friend, Thomas Beck, a firefighter with a legacy of larger-than-life rescues who doesn't see himself as a hero. Haunted by his past, Thomas only agrees to a movie adaptation of his story if Blue, his longtime crush, is the screenwriter. 

However, as Blue and Thomas work together to bring his heroism to the big screen, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood threaten to shed light on secrets that could tear their fragile relationship and their lives apart.

What a lovely story of redemption, forgiveness and overcoming loss. This is book three in the Madison River series and I have to say that although I had not issue reading this as a stand alone novel I do want to read the first two so I get to know the characters a little better. This story focuses on Thomas and Blue and I was all for it!! Right from the start you meet them in the cutest and heart warming of scenes as they are both children and you right away are pulled at the heartstrings and are rooting for Thomas and Blue. 

Right away we meet Thomas who comes from a background in which his parents are less then ideal. He grows up way too soon and loses his best friend in the process as Blue goes off to college, marries and realizes her dreams of becoming a movie screenwriter. However she returns home grief stricken not only is she carrying the pain of her losing her baby but also losing her husband to a divorce and her life in California as a screenwriter. She comes home to get away from it all but in the process re-establishes her friendships.

The romance aspect of this story is at times swoon worthy! Thomas is the perfect guy, you cannot help but fall in love with him. He is a little slow when it comes to the romance department but its understandable as he doesn't want to lose the most important person in his life which is Blue. Seriously at times its comical when his friends tease him about it. 

Now both of them have past hurts and things that they need to deal with which makes these characters very relatable. It makes the story so emotional when they finally just lay it all down and make amends with God and fully start relying on Him. I won't ruin the story for you but boy there are definitely some characters (one in particular that you just want to slap over the head!) Trust me you will know who I am talking about as soon as you read it!

Overall I thought this story was a good one! It was my first by this author but definitely won't be my last! I have already added her to my TBR authors list!

My Review: 4 Stars/Really Enjoyed it/ Swoon worthy moments!

My Favorite Quotes/Musings:

"Of course you're going to hurt her. And she'll hurt you. We're fallen people - even the best of us. Our job is to try and then do everything we can to make things right when we fail. And if you love her and she loves you, that will be easy."

"I chose you. And I'll continue to choose you every day." 😍😍

"Christ's death on the cross and Resurrection promised hope and one day all would be made right."

I received a copy of this book through Just Read. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.


Janine Rosche 

Prone to wander, Janine Rosche finds as much comfort on the open road as she does at home. This longing to chase adventure, behold splendor, and experience redemption is woven into her Madison River Romance series. When she isn’t writing or traveling, she teaches family life education courses to college students, takes too many pictures of her sleeping dogs, and embarrasses her four children and husband with boy band serenades.
