Tracy Dixon faces the toughest battle of her life when she learns her brother is clinging on for his life. Now she must prove her innocence to Allerton’s chief of police, Leif Ericson. But can he trust Tracy and get over his bad knee, his constant reminder of his moment of weakness that almost cost him everything?

This was such a sweet, charming and romantic read. I just can’t believe how well-rounded Tracy and Leif are and how much they connect together. I love that Leif was there for Tracy and helped her overcome her fears and help her deal with her brothers accident and prove her innocence.

I loved this story. It truly was magical. I loved how Ms. Washburn showed that no matter what your past has brought you, it only makes your future stronger. If you can deal with rumors and look past societies judgment than you can become the person you were meant to become. Tracy has a battle to fight, when she returns to her hometown, something she vowed never to do, she thought she would be fighting alone. But in walks, smooth talking, sexy, chief of police, to help her get through her hard time.

This is my first inspirational read, I never gave much thought to the genre, but once I read the blurb to this story I knew I had to read it. I’m so happy I did. The message is such an inspiring one and one we all need to hear. If you’ve never read an inspirational, I recommend it and I suggest you start by reading this story. It’s classic and timeless. It’s romantic and heartwarming. It’s endearing and unforgettable. Ms. Washburn is an author I am going to research and see what else she has to offer.
