After a rough start, she attempts to settle into her position teaching at the local high school, but finds it hard to keep shutting out the people trying to befriend her. Especially Kyle Buchanan, the handsome paramedic who doesn’t try to hide his interest in her.
From there, a sort of "cat and mouse" game begins with Jessica and Kyle each sidestepping each other and the secrets they carry from their past. While its obvious that they are falling in love, they each have emotional baggage they need to deal with. Added to the mix, is Jessica's jealous boss who has her sights set on Kyle as well.
A very prominent evangelistic message is included in the story, and the author does not shy away from the gospel. The biggest disappointment for me was the ending. I felt like there was this huge build up and then it all sort of fell apart at the end. Overall, it was worth the read and I would recommend it. This is the first book in the new Glenbrooke Series and I am interested to see what happens in the next book.
