A Weldon Novel, Book 2
I have read other books by this author set in the town of Weldon, Kentucky, and I looked forward to reading this newest release. I wasn’t disappointed, even though much of the story takes place in Niger.
Casey was a famous model for many years before returning to her home in Weldon. Shoppers travel to buy clothing from her boutique and meet her. She dreams of marrying Daniel, whom she has dated for about a year. However, she has a secret.
Daniel had planned to propose to Casey before his doctor tells him the reason for his headaches is a brain tumor. He may not survive surgery. How can he propose now? Nor can he tell her. Their church’s mission trip to Africa may be the last time he can share with her.
Casey’s past reaches out to her in this multi-layered story that kept me turning pages.
Secondary plots involving foster children drew me in as much as the main story.
There are many unexpected twists and turns in this novel that changed where I imagined it to be heading. The author grabbed and held my attention.
Recommended for readers of inspirational contemporary romances.
