The Price of Trust by Amanda Stephan

Book Description:

What was going on? Was she allowing herself to think too much of this little town? Or just the people in it. She blushed as she remembered how her heart had sped up as Joe had sat next to her. Carly Richards is on the run. For the last two years, she's skipped from town to town, ducking her dangerous and well-informed ex-fianca © every few weeks, never settling anywhere for long. With the death of her parents, Carly's vulnerability made her trust a man with an attractive facade, now that same man tracked her across the country, always nipping at her heels, preventing her from reaching out to anyone other than her God. Now she's in Montana, and surely that is far enough away from Texas and her abusive past that she can rest. But her emotional scars are reluctant to heal, and Carly resists the friendliness of those in the small town she lights upon, especially handsome farmer Joe Baird. Without a car and money, though, she has little choice but to dig in and begin building back up her savings so she can run once more. Caught in the circumstances, the kind people around her begin to creep into her softening heart. God is at work, and she has to trust him to not only take care of her, but care for the people she is learning to love. Carly must learn the Price of Trust.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book. Carly is running. Somehow she has now run into a life she has been trying to avoid. She loves the town, the people are great, and then there is Joe. He is a wonderful man that she could see herself falling for but can't let that happen. She has to stay mobile and not get attached. If she gets attached to people they could get tangled in the mess she is in and be hurt.

I loved Carly. She had her moments but through the whole story, she was considering the consequences of her actions to others. Joe was wonderful too. His strength and faith were very drawing. I also love how the town seemed to just take Carly in. There were a few people who were mean but Joe's family was so close and loving. Not to mention the wonderful couple at the store. The author did a wonderful job with all of her characters and I can't wait to read more from her!

I rate this a 5/5. I completely enjoyed this book!
