A Fresh Start . . .
Imprisoned for a crime he did not commit, Kane Stoddard was an angry, bitter man, until the sweet uplifting letters from Melanie Abercrombie painted a picture of a life he longed for. Now that his name has been cleared, he wants to start a new life and meet the woman who gave him hope when his situation seemed hopeless.
Fighting Her Impulses . . .
Mel doesn’t know what to make of the scruffy bearded Kane who rides up on his motorcycle. Her first thought is he escaped from prison and is dangerous. Stunned by their rapid and sizzling attraction, she tries to fight her impulses and hang on to her prim and proper lifestyle. Mel worries that Kane will leave her once he grows tired of a small town life where he is still treated as an outcast.
This is a very sweet love story. Not those extremely cheesy types. This book also proves how lending an ear to listen and speaking a few kind words can give immense hope to someone in hopeless times, can be their light in darkness and can help them fight the evil off. 😉
Kane is convicted for a crime he didn’t commit. Mel is a prim and proper girl. She is a member of the church, through the church’s program she starts writing letters to Kane. Kane never replies but Mel never stops writing. Although Kane doesn’t reply to Mel’s letters, her letters keep him going. When he is released from the jail because the real convict is arrested he decides to meet and thank the woman who wrote him letters.
He drops unannounced at Mel’s place. First she mistakes him for a workman, when she realizes who he actually is, the first thing that comes to her mind is that Kane ran off. After all those misunderstandings being cleared, Kane is invited to stay with Mel and her dad. Mel’s little sister doesn’t like Kane and often passes snide remarks.
Mel has a boyfriend, who has a little girl. She loves the girl and they share a good bond. Mel helps street animals and has many of them in the backyard including a pig.
With the turn of events, Kane and Mel start growing close. They get to know each other and start falling for each other.
When everything is going right, there is supposed to be a fight like in every love story. After the big fight, towards the end of the book, Kane proposes and well, we get a happy ending! 😀 😉 😛
The characters, the setting, the language was all very simple and engaging. It was a easy and fast-paced read. I really enjoyed Kane’s character. 😀
Why would I pick it up?
For the sweet, easy read and fast paced love story. 😀
