Goodreads: Brady Collins is juggling full-time fatherhood with the booming auto repair business he runs out of his barn. His ex-wife’s sudden death has shaken him, but the devastating news that follows leaves him reeling: Sam is not his biological son.
When Sam’s wealthy maternal grandparents decide they want custody of the child, Brady knows he’s in for the fight of his life. Brady’s attorney tips him off that one major life change would virtually assure him of winning guardianship of baby Sam at the final hearing: the stability of an impending marriage. And his friend Hope is willing to step in as the loving and devoted fiancée.
But regardless of what any blood test says, Sam is his son, and Brady will go to any lengths to keep him.
Local radio celebrity Hope Daniels has been driven by a solitary goal her entire life, and she’s finally been offered her dream job–in Atlanta. Unfortunately, her arrangement with Brady requires her presence in Copper Creek, and she is faced with missing the chance of a lifetime or standing in the way of a dear friend’s dreams.
Both Hope and Brady would give their lives for beautiful Sam. But can they give their trust to one another? With this new novel in the Blue Ridge Romance series, Honeysuckle Dreams shines light on the complicated and beautiful angles of love.
Ope’s Opinion: As I started reading this book, I thought I knew where it was going. Some of it did go where I thought, but there were a few twists along the way. This was the second in the Blue Ridge series. You did not have to read the first one to enjoy this one. It has been a while since I read the first one, but I quickly knew what was going on.
Hope and Brady’s story was different from most love stories and lot of fun to read. I enjoyed seeing them find their way from friendship to a loving marriage. Denise Hunter makes her characters endearing to her readers.
The third book in the series is on my book shelf and will be read soon.
