Goodreads:  Pastor Jack McReady has secretly carried a torch for Daisy for two long years. She’s a member of his congregation, after all, and she’ll never see him as more than a trusted counselor. Jack’s best friend Noah has taken every opportunity to encourage his lovesick friend, but when Noah catches wind that Daisy has joined an online dating site, he takes matters into his own hands and orchestrates a meet-cute of the most unconventional kind.

Owner of the local flower shop, Daisy Pendleton is content with her small-town life, but she’d sure like someone to share it with. After several disastrous first dates, she’s about to give up—and then she finds a seemingly wonderful man online. Daisy gets to know TJ through a series of messages but finds herself spending more time with Pastor Jack outside of the church at the same time. What she doesn’t know is that her online prospect and Jack are one and the same. 

Just as Daisy’s love life starts to look promising, a mysterious woman appears in town. Daisy is faced with a revelation about her family that turns her world upside down, and she looks to both TJ and Jack for help.

Jack must find a way to reveal himself as her online suitor without breaking her heart and losing her trust. As Daisy faces Jack’s betrayal, she’ll have to learn to extend grace to herself, her family, and the man she’s grown to love.

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a series and this is one of those series where each book centers around a different character but the common denominator is it taking place in the same location.  These books are Christian fiction, but with the sweetest of romances.  

This story revolves around Pastor Jack and a woman who has become a friend but is she more than just a member of his church.  His friends notice that Jack could be interested and know that she is on a dating app so they sign him up in hopes of them connecting and something growing.  As in all romance books, you know the ending almost from the beginning, but the joy of reading is the journey to get there.  

The thing I love most about Denise Hunter and her books are they are the best parts of romance books that I love.  There is a story and characters, but as it being Christian fiction you are missing out on the sexy times.  They are pure and sweet and I just love curling up with them.  

I think the way Denise Hunter reads it is just so easy to get swept up in the story and you look up and you are half way or done!  I hope there are more to come in this series.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
