Guest Post & Giveaway: Still the One By Robin Wells

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!
Still the One by Robin Wells


What the book says:
Robin Wells takes us back to Chartreuse, Louisiana, for a deeply moving story of forgiveness and second chances.

After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.


Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?


About the Author:
Robin Wells is an accomplished romance author, having written over a dozen titles for Harlequin. She is the author of Baby, Oh Baby (Lovespell, 7/03), which won the National Readers' Choice Award. Robin Wells has won the prestigious National Golden Heart Award from the Romance Writers of America, and her novels have been translated into more than a dozen languages.


Here's what I think:
What a sweet book.This book is a heart-warming, sometimes sad but also happy read. It is an interesting chain of event, Katie's husband dies in Iraq, she "goes home" to find that the daughter she left behind is now pregnant at 16 and needs the help of both parents, which in turn forces them to work together. It is a little predictable but a fun read nonetheless. I would definitely say it's a great book for a summer road trip.

  5. Nope. Personal experiences have led me to believe that "the one" is a myth.

    But I'd love to read the book.

  13. Heh

    Good to see I'm not the only cynic.

    I have been happily married for 17 years and I believe "the one" is something we create and cultivate with lots of hard work on both partners parts. Chemistry is easy; relationships not so much.

    Still love to read the book though.

    :)

  15. I don't really believe in "the one" because we all change and circumstances do as well - but I do believe in the power of love and commitment!

  16. I'm not sure I believe in "the one". Rarely do I see a couple that I think were "made for each other".

    ReplyDelete
  17. I kind of believe in "the one." Unfortunately, you don't always meet "the one" at the right time in your life and you end up with "almost the one."

    ReplyDelete
  18. I believe in the One for now. I think there can be a different "The One" at different life stages...its all about timing and priorities! Thanks

  19. I don't believe there is just one person out there that we are meant to be with. Even though I have been married for 28 years I don't ethat we are so called soul mates. It has taken a lot of hard work and commitment to stay together all these years.

  68. That's an interesting question. In my situation I met three who were wonderful and later on another one.I'm wondering if i chose the "one". I know we have free choice but I wonder if we are going to be who we are going to be. garrettsambo@aol.com
