Stephanie Miller was a twenty-six year-old single woman who worked from home. She had several on-line businesses, including More than, a Christian dating service. She lived in Scottsdale and moved to Sierra Vista because she decided she needed to meet a certain man who signed up for her dating service. She liked everything about him and decided he might be her perfect mate.

Jacob Wells was five years older than she. He was an accountant and an earnest attendee of a local church. His first impression of Stephanie was that she was the prettiest woman he had ever seen. He was highly interested in her. Within a month they started a tentative relationship. Then tax season started and Jacob worked 12-16 hour days. Sometimes he didn’t even make it to church. That’s when Stephanie made her second friend in this new town.

This book has something to interest almost everybody. There was a tender romance, a conflicting interest from an outside source, and a sinister “best friend” who appeared in her life but didn’t like Jacob. They were faced, almost immediately, with myriad problems—both with their relationship and their commitment to each other. There were no downtimes or slow parts to this story.

I enjoyed the book and recommend it to others. It had spirituality in it quite evidently. However, it wasn’t overpowering so that others would be offended. The characters, even the “bad” one, were totally believable. There was depth to their characters which made the plot totally believable. It also showed the vulnerability of some people and how easy it is/could be to fall for a scam. It was definitely an unexpected slant to the book.

The ending was explosive. I can guarantee that you will enjoy reading this book.
