Chasing Embers by Rachel Skatvold

About the Book

Chasing EmbersBook Title: Chasing Embers (Heart Ranch, Book 2)
Author: Rachel Skatvold
Genre: Christian Romance / Contemporary Western
Release date: August 20, 2018
ANNABELLE HART thought owning the family ranch would be everything she ever dreamed of and more. The Montana wilderness has always flowed like blood through her veins, but she can’t understand why her heart feels so empty inside.
Three years after leaving Montana to become a wild land firefighter, COLTON BROOKS still dreams about the girl he left behind at Hart Ranch. He prays for her happiness, believing she deserves someone better than him, but doubts he will ever love again.
When their paths intersect again, will the embers of their past romance be rekindled, or will an unexpected disaster change life as they know it forever?
My Thoughts:
I just loved this book.  Belle has always planned to run the family's ranch. She absolutely loves the ranch and everything about it. She hadn't expected it to hurt so much though. Still years later, she hasn't gotten over the man who walked out of her life and broke her heart.  I absolutely love how close Belle's family is. They are always there for each other.
Colton went after his dreams and left Belle behind. He thought she could do better than him, but he never stopped loving her. His family is super close too and I really liked his mom. She is a hard worker who puts her family's needs first. Colton may say he wants Belle to move on, but isn't prepared for her to really do it. There are ups and downs. I loved that it isn't an easy  choice for either of them but God's hand guides them.
This was a 5/5.  I truly enjoyed it!

Guest Post from Rachel

Chasing Embers is a sequel I have been excited to write since the release of Escaping Reality over two years ago. To be honest, while writing book one, I thought it would just be a standalone story and not part of a series. However, Logan’s strong-willed little sister, Belle, was determined to have her own story and I’m thrilled that she is finally getting one!
One of the theme verses from Chasing Embers is Ephesians 3:20, which says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” In the story, the characters go through some trials that seem impossible to overcome. In order to keep their loved ones and the ranch safe, the Hart family must cling tightly to their faith and trust that God always keeps his promises. The events of the story also serve as a reminder that God can do mighty things through us if we allow him to.
Chasing Embers is a heartwarming tale of lost love, second chances and choosing to love even when it is difficult. Be prepared to laugh, cry and rejoice with Belle and Colton as you read their love story. To find out more about Chasing Embers by Rachel Skatvold, read the summary above.
