I don't even want to admit how long it took me to read this book. Life has been so busy that I have not had the time to read like I used to. That makes me sad. I love to read.
I did finally finish this book after staying up until 10:30 last night. (Yes, 10:30 is late around here.)
This time I received To Honor and Trust by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. This is the third installment in the Bridal Veil Island series. You can see my review of the second in the series here.
Callie is the tutor for the Bridgeport family who winters on Bridal Veil Island. Wes is the black sheep of the Townsend family. The Townsend family decided to winter on the island as well. Wes, after much pressure from the family to join the family business, takes up a position as golf pro while on the island to fill his time and get away from the pressure. Callie had met him previously on a walk with the children she teaches and assumed him to be a gardener due to his knowledge of plants. She was very surprised to find him as the teacher when she takes one of her charges for their lesson.
Wes and Callie grow to love each other but Callie had been burned by a previous relationship and has a hard time with trust. Wes never corrected Callie to tell him who he really was. Will Callie ever forgive Wes when she learns the truth?
This book makes up for the last installment's lack luster storyline and characters. In this story, it is easy to get lost. You can see the train wreck of Callie finding out the truth and you just want to know what happens. You don't want to wait. You just can't help but like Callie and Wes and want the best for them. There is also a side story woven into the main story that creates a bit more interest. Overall, this is more what I expect from Peterson. I hope that we will be able to find out what happens next to Callie and Wes.
(I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.)
