Publisher's Summary

Exactly who was the mysterious stranger who caught Joanna's eye and instantly had such an incredible effect upon her senses? On holiday with her twin brother Paul, she was minding her own business, sipping an iced drink in the lovely old town of St. Malo, when the impertinent blue stare of a rather disreputable looking busker totally unnerved Joanna. She tried to flee from him, but fate decreed they should meet again, in circumstances where she felt forced into giving him aid.
Within days, Jake had won her love, but Joanna was soon to discover the awful truth. Her penniless drifter had deliberately lied, cruelly deceiving her as to his real identity. Angry and hurt, Joanna vowed revenge.

not your typical 'Christian romance'

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

This book is a little hard to rate. I enjoyed the story line and wanted to learn more about this 'man of mystery', however it is a bit on the edgy side. There are curse words and the mention of sex many times. It is not your typical christian Romance. There is the mention of God and salvation so I guess it is not your typical secular romance either. Jake is a perfect man of mystery and the chemistry between him and Joanna is undeniable. I enjoyed their combative personality. I was given an audible version of this book and the narration is well done. The main characters of this book are from London and the narrator has a British accent which adds to the book nicely.

A simple love story.

Carol Collins book is a simple story that depicts all the angst and impatience one might find in young love. The plot is believable and the characters are realistic. Both Joanna and Jake are flawed characters with life experiences and personalities that challenge the way they approach their budding relationship. Despite what the title might suggest, there is no sudden suspense or drama. The story moves along quite smoothly and naturally.

I particularly enjoyed Mary Phillips narration. She brings the characters to life while maintaining a lyrical quality that makes for easy listening.
