Steeple Hill Books The Promise of Home

As temporary guardian of her sister's two children, big-city magazine columnist Jenna Gardner is forced to face her past. She isn't in Mirror Lake for long before she realizes that everything has changed. And it's not her past throwing her off-kilter now-it's handsome next-door neighbor, Dev McGuire. Though Dev gets under her skin, he quickly proves himself an excellent father figure for the children. Soon he's encouraging Jenna to believe in second chances. But it'll take a leap of faith to believe that her future just might be in Mirror Lake after all.

Jenna is a city girl and finds herself in a country setting. Stepping up to help her sister with her niece and nephew, she moves into their home to help take care of them. While there she meets a handsome neighbor called Dev. Dev has moved to the country to get away from the city. How the two main characters interact is interesting but only part of this story. The children in the story actually play an important part and help keep the story line moving. Without the children and town people the story might have been a little boring.
I gave this book 4/5 stars. I liked the children in the book and thought they were portrayed well. The main character, Jenna, was just not that likeable. I did not think the writer wrote her well. The other main character, Dev, was written pretty well but not really someone you could cheer for. However, I like reading Love Inspired for the escape factor and thought it did well at giving me a story that entertained.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
