From the back of the book:
After Katie Charmaine’s husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she’s always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town…with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn’t felt in years. But he’s in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and – worst of all – pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to one another?
I have read many books by Ms. Wells and have found them pleasant but not fantastic. STILL THE ONE is fantastic!! This book is overflowing with emotions and second chances. STILL THE ONE is much more than a romance novel. (Not that there’s anything wrong with pure romance 🙂 The evolution of the relationships between Katie and her daughter Gracie, Zack and Katie and Zack and Gracie are written with such depth that I found myself brought to tears at times. Also, the addition of Katie’s dead husbands parents and their journey was fantastic. I loved how we learned how Paul’s (the dead husband) family felt about Gracie and Zack. This is the perfect book for those seeking romances about second chances!
Tomorrow (5/7) I’ll be giving away 3 copies of STILL THE ONE. Make sure to come back and comment. Also, don’t forget to leave a comment on the Mother’s Day giveaway that ends on Sunday.
the book girl gives STILL THE ONE a 4.5/5
