About the BookTitle: Loving the Rancher’s Children Series: Hope Crossing #3 Author: Mindy Obenhaus Publisher: Love Inspired Books Release Date: May 23, 2023 Genre: Contemporary Christian Romance
A short-term solution…
could lead to long-term love.
When Alli Krenek returns to her hometown, she’s surprised to find herself agreeing to become a nanny to Jake Walker’s children. Seventeen years ago, Jake betrayed Alli’s trust, and she’s avoided him ever since. But the more time she spends with Jake, the more his two little ones melt her heart and Alli begins to see the man Jake has become. Is this their chance to finally heal old wounds?
My Book Review!
“My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” —2 Corinthians 12:9
This one’s climax was a bang compared to other Love-Inspired books! It even reminded me of those of Love Inspired Suspense (*spoiler!* one of the characters gets drugged, and there’s a kidnapping!).
Connor and Maddie were also super adorable, and I loved Alli’s heart for serving children and her persistence in pushing forward in life even after going through some traumatic work experiences. I am so glad she got her happy ending with Jake, and the epilogue really was perfect!
One tiny complaint (lol) is that I wish there were more scenes set in church. After the opening where Alli is forced to see Jake again after their falling out in high school, the book tragically moved away from church and to other settings like the library and, of course, Jake’s ranch.
Still, the ranch, with its farmhouse and open fields, was picturesque, and I would say that Loving the Rancher’s Children makes for a fantastic summer read. If you like Christian fiction, second chances, and/or sweet and lighthearted romance stories, this one is for you!
