When Rachel Murphy hires the mysterious new man in town to help repair her run-down Texas home, she thinks she’s doing him a favor by giving him a hand up. But she discovers Cash Thompson is more than just a master of repair and renovation. When he begins to stir the embers of her cautious heart, she has to push him away. If he ever finds out her tragic past, it will shatter the illusions that keep her safe.

Cash can see the torment behind Rachel's eyes, but he won't allow her self-imposed solitude to drive a wedge between them. He knows what it’s like not to be able to escape your past, and he vows to stick by her regardless of the secrets she holds close to her heart.

Will Rachel allow Cash to be the healing love she needs, or will she turn away her last chance at happiness?

It’s always good to discover a writer new to you, and Julia K Moore is a writer worth watching. Her treatment of her story and her characters epitomize the small community mentality. Her word choices are fabulous. The following created a wonderful image for me, “She struggled against him like a trapped viper.” In one sentence, she conveys the raging emotions in the unknown woman. Fear, strength, frailty. It’s all there in one sentence, and open the way to reveal, Cash, her hero’s, character. How will he react to this stranger?

This inspirational story lacks nothing in pace and depth of writing. Her heroine, Rachel, is prepared to protect the vulnerable from all-comers, so when Cash chases her she does what comes naturally.

In this life we often fail to recognise the existence of Earth Angels, could Ella be one such?

Ms. Moore makes every word count as she unfolds the growing attraction between Rachel and Cash. Both have lessons to learn, and Ms Moore takes them on personal journeys that offer rewards beyond their wildest dreams, if only they have the courage to go for what they both want from life, and each other.

If you are in the mood for, or need to read something that gives you that ‘feel-good-factor’ then this story is guaranteed to satisfy, and is a charming story to keep on your shelf.
