Leah Jones is a pastor's daughter, who finds herself having to raise 3 year old Missy, whose parents were killed in a car accident. Leah's father has passed away too and now the church needs the parsonage she is living in, Missy is in the hospital for diabetes and Leah isn't sure where or how she will live. Along comes Trip, the "rich" boy next door, who Leah has been good friends with all her life (and who she has secretly loved for most of that time). Trip wants to help out Leah and knows the only way to do that is to marry her and have her and Missy live with him. I loved the book and reading how both Leah and Trip felt about each other. They both cared for each other so much and although they didn't say it, you know that love was there all along. ( )

Leah Jones and Trip Cartwright grew up together but came from different sides of the fence. (literally). They have always been best friends but Leah somehow knew that a preacher's daughter wouldn't be the kind of woman Trip would be interested in. Then Leah returns home to care for her father. When her father dies and she is given custody of a little 3 year-old-girl (who is her niece) Leah finds herself in a financial mess. Trip steps in and offers Leah something she has always dreamed about - marriage. Although he is going through some difficulties himself because of his family's company closing, he has plenty to provide for her and Missy. Will Leah accept Trip's proposal at the risk of breaking her heart knowing that it's in name only? What are Trip's true feelings? Can the two make a home together for Missy?

This was a fantastic book! I throughly enjoy the story. The characters were real people who you came to care about. Trip was a strong male lead and Leah was a great feisty counterpart. My only regret was that the book ended. I hope to see more books by this author. ( )

Book description
Leah Jones has loved Trip Cartwright since childhood. In spite of their friendship, Leah knows a preacher's daughter isn't the kind of woman to interest a man of Trip's wealthy background. Trip, however, feels he owes Leah's family reparation and steps in with an offer of marriage when Leah is hit with a series of financial disasters. But Trip's business problems and troubled childhood threaten their marriage, and Leah must choose between winning Trip's love and protecting his life. Fictinwise
