Back in her hometown with her twin daughters, widow Marilyn Sofitel is set on never falling in love again. She’s sure her heart is safe spending time with Wyatt Walker as he works to fix the carousel her girls love. Everyone knows he’s handsome, charming…and trouble. But as they grow closer, might their unlikely friendship to develop into something deeper?

My Thoughts

God can take anything and bring beauty out of it.
Marilyn has been broken by here late husband although she hides it really well. Moving back home was a chance a a new beginning for her and her girls and although it was hard, she found friendship and community. I love how in the midst of every struggle, she tried to centre herself in Christ telling him her struggles, going to him in thanksgiving and most times surprised when he answered really quickly but still grateful that he did.
And then there’s Wyatt, everyone knows he’s trouble and he doesn’t mind the label at all. He becomes Marilyn’s friend and sticks by her especially when certain things about her late husband come to light that shake her foundation, he’s a source of comfort to her and falls in love in the process without realising it.
Marilyn’s twin blessings were an added bonus to this story and I really enjoyed it.
