Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance
Can a consummate worrier and a man with a dangerous occupation rekindle their love even though she turned down his marriage proposal two years earlier?
Piper Wells is an accident-prone woman with a big heart who runs a successful business and is raising her ten-year-old nephew. Being orphaned after the death of her parents in a car accident has left her fearful of creating a home and a family with a cop who puts his life on the line regularly.
Police officer Graham Lockhart never got over Piper’s rejection, nor did he ever understand why she refused to marry him. He thought she loved him, and her reasons for rejecting his proposal didn’t make much sense.
When Piper volunteers to manage a benefit auction right before Christmas but injures her ankle, Graham steps in to help. It was for a good cause, and what else could he do? Besides, now he might find out why Piper wouldn’t marry him.
Author Emily Conrad skillfully unwraps a sweet romance that examines mistrust, anxiety, fear, and abandonment while demonstrating God’s healing love.
