At first, I wasn’t enjoying this book as much as I thought I would due to the head jumping and insta-attraction between Catherine and Will, but it ended up being cute. Definitely not my favorite by this author, but it had a good faith message. Major fans of Hallmark movies would probably like this one the best.
