Book Review: Until I Found You

"When Kate Darby swerves off a mountain road to avoid hitting a California condor, she ends up trapped in her car, teetering on the edge of a cliff. Terrified, she breathes a prayer that changes her life: "God, if you're real, I want to know you."

 It's Nick Sheridan who comes to Kate's rescue. Nick is handsome, confident, and seems to develop a habit of rescuing her, but Kate is in town only until her grandmother recuperates from a stroke. She's not planning to fall in love with one of the locals.

 Nick Sheridan is a reformed veteran of life in the fast lane, a new Christian, and a travel writer. When he sees a car dangling on the edge of a cliff, the daredevil in him jumps into action. He doesn't expect to be swept off his feet by the car's occupant. He's made a vow: no dating for a year. And it's a vow he intends to keep in spite of his attraction to Kate Darby."

This book came and I dove right into it. The characters and their struggles kept me reading. I'm pretty sure that my heart was in my throat when Kate was dangling off that cliff in her car. Merciful heavens, that felt all too real. Nick was the kind of guy that any woman would want to have nearby. He was funny, smart and had just enough rough edges to catch yourself on. While this was a great read, I appreciated that it wasn't the cliffhanger type that kept you turning page after page. As someone who has been getting up earlier, staying up later really isn't an option for me right now, so this book came along at just the right time. I could read a few chapters, snuggle up under the covers and get right to sleep and then rinse and repeat over a few days until I closed the back cover with a smile. The story had come full circle and I had still gotten some good nights' sleep!
