A story about first loves and ties that bind. After public humiliation beautiful Katie McKenna has deteremined that she will lead a life of safety - even in matters of love. She takes the stance that practical, steady, depedable love is better than love that makes the heart skip a beat. Little does she know that her predicatable, dependable, bland life is about to be turned on its head when her handsome ex-boyfriend dances back into her life. She had packed away the passion of her youth into a box in the back of heart and moved into a cookie cutter life and a love-less engagement made out of the practicallity of steadiness and dependability. All the while justifying that she was holding true to "love is a choice" biblical standard. Her fiance is Dexter - a graduate of MIT. He is bland and boring - and worse yet unkind and unforgiving. Luc - the dashing ex is now a multimillionaire and he has his eyes set on making things right with Katie. This book is a sweet story of facing past mistakes and humiliation and learning what forgiveness and love are. It is about learning not to be defined by the things that happen in our lives but defining our lives by those beliefs we hold dear - operating in Christ.
The only thing that bothered me - and this may seem silly - is the cover. I could not stand the fact that in the book Katie is a red-haired, green-eyed irish girl yet the book cover shows to brunettes.
