This is the 3rd book of the Brides of Bonneterre Series. I have not read the other two books in the series so you might want to check them out as well.

Alaine finds out that her family’s businesses are in jeopardy of being shut down so that a new development can come in. She soon finds out the how this is happening is shady at best and works to find a lawyer to help her family and friends.
Forbes is a lawyer and sometimes takes pro bono cases on the side and circumstances lead him to be the lawyer for Alaine’s family. The problem is its Forbes family business who is behind the take over. Will God help Forbes make the right choice with out losing his family and the women he loves?
This book almost became a DNF. I had a hard time getting into it at first. I also found the plot some what predictable. But I kept reading and once I got about 50% in I started to enjoy it more. The ending was okay and I admit to tearing up at the happy ending but the ending felt rushed and maybe a little unbelievable. The characters where well developed and I enjoyed getting to know them. I also wanted to learn more about Anne and Meredith. I felt the author does a good job of incorporating the other two book characters with out over powering the story at hand. But in the end this was just a so so book for me. I don’t see myself picking up the first two books unless they are on sale or free at some point.
I received this Ebook for free through NetGalley for this review. The options are my own.
