On the surface, Eva Black's life seems practically perfect. The small-town kindergarten teacher is set to wed ambitious lawyer Sean Langley, and their plans for a dream wedding are well underway. Eva accepts that she will soon live life in the spotlight as a member of the prestigious Langley family, but can she overlook her fiance's tendency to dominate the details of her life and push the limits of her standards?
Mere weeks before the wedding, Eva is thrown into a traumatic, life-changing event that changes her view of family commitment and creates a sharp contrast between her ideals and Sean's. With her engagement to Sean in jeopardy, Eva finds herself relying on the support and encouragement of Peter, her kind and attentive next-door neighbor. Faced with a choice between her penitent fiance and the increasingly mysterious Peter, Eva is unprepared for the consequences—and peril—that come with her decision.

This is an intriguing LDS novel! The first person point of view is refreshing. I feel like I know the characters and would expect to see them in town. Please, I'm anxiously awaiting another novel from this gifted writer. So many of the current LDS writers are predicable, while Kate Palmer has given us a new plot line and real life dialog. Thank You!
Not only was this story hard to put down and the suspense engaging, but I think that it qualifies as a section from 'Dating 101'. I wish I had been more interested in romance novels as a teenager, this would have come in handy as a young adult!
This book was so fantastically wonderful I could not put it down. The feelings were so raw and real. If this is Kate Palmer's first book, I have no doubt I will buy ALL of her books in the future. Truly AWESOME!
