Michelle Thomas has it all. Beautiful and successful, she’s just opened her own law firm in Freedom Lake. What more could she want? When her old flame rolls back into Freedom Lake, she’s intent on ignoring him. But how can she give the widower and his precious twin girls the cold shoulder?

Still reeling from the death of his wife, Guy Pierre returns to Freedom Lake to take over as town sheriff and raise his twin daughters. Alone. Yet, life keeps throwing Michelle in his path and sparks of interest began to rise.

Will old secrets tear them apart again or can they find the faith to let God’s grace restore what has been broken?

My Thoughts:

I loved reading the first book in the Freedom Lake series and I was super excited to be able to read this second story. It was like visiting old friends. While you could read this book as a stand-alone, you would miss out on the background information of secondary characters not to mention another fantastic story!

Grace Restored is a beautiful story!  The writing style is engaging and captivating. The characters are realistic and I felt mesmerized and charmed by their story, yet humbled by their candid honesty. With a touch of drama, a splash of romance, and at its core the all-encompassing love of our Savior.  You won’t want to put this story down!

Raw and honest this story challenged me to take a hard look at myself. It’s easy to put up the facade of “everything is okay”, while we hold on tightly to our secrets. But what a privilege we have as children of God to be able, to be honest, and share our burdens with one another and with our Savior.

At its core, this story is a gentle reminder that we are all sinners, and we all need God’s grace. I give this fabulous story 5 enthusiastic stars! Run, don’t walk to your nearest bookstore (or online bookseller) to purchase a copy of this book for yourself!
