Rave! Rave! Rave! I recently finished reading Tamera Alexander's From A Distance, the first Timber Ridge novel. It was great. Now I've got Beyond This Moment, the second book in the series, on my Kindle 2, waiting for me to finish a couple of non-fiction books I'm currently reading. And let me tell you, I cannot wait to read Beyond This Moment. Here's the skinny:
When Dr. Molly Whitcomb, Professor of Romance Languages, steps off the train in Colorado Territory, she makes a choice—one that goes against everything she stands for. Yet it’s the only choice that offers her a chance to regain a fraction of all she’s lost.
Sheriff James McPherson’s instincts about people rarely miss the mark. He senses Professor Whitcomb is hiding something. He just doesn’t know what. When James learns Molly’s secret, his own reputation is undermined. But when Molly Whitcomb’s reinvented life begins to unravel, it threatens his job, the stability of Timber Ridge, and what he always knew to be true about himself.
What others are saying about Beyond This Moment:
"Pull up a comfy armchair! The main and secondary characters in Beyond This Moment instantly become people to care about, and the plot twists will keep you turning pages long into the night. The themes of racial tolerance and second chances are as timely today as they were back in the early days of Colorado's history." — Romantic Times, 4 1/2 star review
