I picked this book up because I thought it would be a good western Christian romance novel. Surprisingly, this is a contemporary noel instead of a historical novel. I didn’t realize that until after I started reading it. Next, there are many layers to the conflict. Multiple unrelated problems are pulling them apart and pushing them together at the same time. At some points, all of the conflicts can make it feel unrealistic. However, real-life can sometimes feel as if everything is conspiring against you. This is a marriage of convenience story where they end up falling in love.
