This was such a wonderful romance. I could not put it down. At first I had a hard time liking Faith but then she grows on you as you learn more and more about her. I liked Geary but he was a big mama’s boy. Family is important but not as important as your spouse. They both had some problems during this marriage. I look forward to reading the next book in this Texas Gold collection. I received this book from Revell reads for a fair and honest opinion.
A Reason To Stay
By Kellie Coates Gilbert
Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can’t control
As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she’s anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she’d like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary’s life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man–and his overbearing relatives don’t know the meaning of boundaries.
Faith and Geary haven’t been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn’t be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.
Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage–and the ultimate healing power of love.
