What is not to love in about a story involving cowboys, romance, forgiveness and friendship? This is the first of Christine's novels I have read and it is always a little scary to pick up a new author and it is wonderful to be rewarded with a great new author. I enjoyed this novel and even though it is the second in the Pinky Promise series it stands alone rather nicely but I look forward to reading the others in the series. The novel deals with forgiveness of yourself and others. So often we make poor decisions in our youth and then have to deal with the consequence for the rest of our lives. This is the situation that Rachel finds herself in. She struggles to accept her forgiveness and deal with the secrets that have surrounded her life. If you are looking for a novel that is fun and insightful this is a great choice.
