Hunter’s latest Chapel Springs Romance is a lovely story of lost and found, with a heroine struggling to accept that trusting God doesn’t make life perfect — without loss or sorrow — but can bring great joy. The hero’s love for her and willingness to lose her to save her is quite moving.

Veterinarian Madison McKinley is determined to win this year’s regatta for her twin, Michael, who died when he was 17, using his boat. Unfortunately, the pro Evan Higgins won’t be able to give her the lessons she won in an auction, passing them on to Beckett O’Reilly. Madison blames Beckett for her sister, Jade, leaving town. Yet, as Beckett helps Madison overcome her fear of water and teaches her to sail, she sees he’s changed from the bad boy she knew as a teenager. Beckett soon loves Madison even more deeply than he did as a teen, but the misunderstanding about Jade and a secret concerning Michael’s death could destroy any chance of a future with her.
