Cheri Clay, December 7, 2007 (view all comments by Cheri Clay)
Sheriff Kurt Muldoon is running from his past, a past that April Shelnutt doesn’t know about. A past with a hurt so deep that he keeps running instead of forgiving himself, but April feels he is running from her.

Kurt and April had dated in the recent past but Kurt wanted to hide their relationship from the meddling towns people of Wileyville, Kentucky. Especially the COCW- The Council of Christian Women, who feel it’s their Christian duty to do their good deed of matching all the single men and women together. A group that includes Kurt’s gossiping mother and April’s sister who has taken on the “project” of getting Kurt and April married. Also April’s best friend and the town’s matriarch feisty Miss Cora Barrett ninety years young sees the young people together as well and tells them every chance she gets telling them they look cute together.

Kurt and April do love each other but both are to stubborn to admit it to anyone instead they continually lash out in anger at each other when they do see each other so it’s easier to avoid each other as much as possible.

Kurt’s plan is buying Miss Cora’s father’s compound, Ezra’s Holler 15 miles outside of town and quit as sheriff and to just live out his life alone with his dog Miltilda. Who would have thought the first night he had begun to move his things in, April brings Miss Cora back to the house to get a few of her things and Miss Cora ends up injuring her back doing of all things climbing out of a window to trim the dogwood tree! Kurt feels he has no choice but to let them stay the 4 to 6 days needed for Miss Cora to heal per doctor’s orders until she can return home, which entangles their lives together from which there is no return. Kurt even acts as though April planned all this just so they could stay at Kurt’s.

So it becomes a rough few days that’s topsy tervy with Miss Cora going from bad to worse which forces Kurt and April together even more. So the questions remain will Miss Cora make it? What is in Kurt’s past that he can’t let go of and will he ever let it go so he can love again? Will April still love him if and when he let’s go?

You’ll be surprised by this novel. You’ll go in expecting a romance novel which it is but within its pages is a strong, clear teaching of love and forgiveness that only God, Himself could have placed in the heart of the author Annie Jones. See how the dogwood tree and planting a garden becomes a teaching of new beginnings and blossoming life.

This is actually the 3rd book about the characters of Wileyville, Kentucky. The other 2 books are “Sadie-In-Waiting” and “Mom Over Miami” written about April’s sisters Sadie and Hannah. But don’t think you have to read the whole series as “April In Bloom” does stand alone as a story unto itself but don’t be surprised if after reading “April In Bloom” it will peak your curiosity to want to know more.
