(Heartland Sweethearts, #2)
It was such fun to return to Rapid Falls, Iowa for another of Angie Dicken’s sweet inspirational stories. I love small-town settings and their friendly, realistic, and charming characters, which this author creates so well. The main characters, Elisa Hartley and Sean Peters, are engaging and endearing, and I enjoyed seeing their relationship grow and change. When Elisa gains guardianship of her two adorable nieces, she brings them to the house she purchased and is remodeling in Rapid Falls. Landscape architect Sean is hoping to retain the job of doing the landscaping of the house. The two nieces, Lottie and Ava, are a delightful addition to the story.
This is a wonderful, clean and wholesome tale of healing, forgiveness, and hope. While it is somewhat predictable as to the ending, there are enough twists and turns to keep it interesting and entertaining. I recommend this book to those who enjoy contemporary inspirational romance. I’m looking forward to more from this talented author.

She needs all the help she can get.
Will she accept it from him?
Getting left at the altar wasn’t in Elisa Hartley’s planner—but neither was gaining custody of her two orphaned nieces. Determined to be the best guardian possible, Elisa moves them into a newly renovated house. When landscape architect Sean Peters arrives to fix up her yard, he might just be able to heal her heart, too. Except Sean’s got a secret…and revealing it could throw a wrench in their happily-ever-after.
