Evans’ emotional story of love and forgiveness is a bit long-winded. This is a look at a marriage built on a rather fragile love, with a couple that needs to mature. The heroine’s lack of faith in both her husband and God is understandable, but tends to wear thin. The hero’s feelings about church attendance are very realistic and easy to believe.

Kellen and Juliet Rossiter have a good marriage. They have no children, though they have been trying for the past two years, and Juliet fills her days with volunteer work for Trinity Christian Church. Kellen keeps busy with his job as a talent agent. Maybe he’s too busy. He recruits Chloe Havernell, an extraordinarily talented singer, and experiences an unwelcome attraction to her. He loves Juliet, yet finds himself drawn to Chloe. When he realizes what a danger associating with her is, will it be too late to save his marriage? Hopefully not, for what Juliet and he have both longed for has happened: Juliet is pregnant. (HARBOURLIGHT, Oct., 300 pp., $16.99)
