Synopses & Reviews
Take a walk in Shiloh National Military Park in this fun, fast-paced romance by Annalisa Daughety, a new voice in women's contemporary fiction. Recent history has taught Kristy O'Neal not to believe in love or risk her heart. Ace Kennedy came to Shiloh to research his family history--but it's Park Ranger Kristy he's studying. Using his own ancestors as an example, can he prove that true love really does exist before Kristy walks away forever?
"When park ranger Kristy O'Neal returns to her job at Shiloh National Military Park after being left at the altar, she can hardly stand the thought of facing her colleagues as a jilted woman. Still, Kristy realizes her heart will mend fastest where her real love lies: the natural surroundings of a famed national park. Just when Kristy summons up her strength to re-enter her workplace, she discovers that a new ranger a handsome and eligible man has replaced her. Ace Kennedy immediately feels the heat, but definitely not the type of heat he hopes for after meeting Kristy. As the two attempt to work amicably with one another, outside pressures in the form of vandalism, interfering matchmakers, old wounds and fresh emotions draw Kristy and Ace closer while also setting them against each other. New fiction voice Daughety has come up with a clever plot setting for her novel, but the story line is far too formulaic and implausible for fiction fans wanting more than formula."
