The story was sweet and creative. Early in the book i discovered that an attractive divorcee, Annabelle was trying to find restoration after her weeklong marriage fell apart to a con man. Jul 23, Audrey rated it liked it. I really enjoyed this third book written by Delia Parr. However, there are a couple of reasons that this, for me, is not a 5-star book.
I also felt that the character of Harrison could have been written a little more affectiond. Her spice even added a bit of the humor factor as the main characters worked out their struggles. All the tension, though, did make for a very satisfying conclusion once the secrets were out and the problem dealt with.

And I am sorely upset I splurged and bought this full priced, I have found much better bargain books. May 27, Casey rated it liked it.
Thanks for telling us about the problem. Aug 09, Sheri Salatin rated it really liked it. Let me take a breath before I begin. A wonderful story of how a bad situation was turned around. I give it a three out of five stars because it was predictable to the point of boring. I enjoyed seeing pafr Annabelle remained genuine and selfless throughout the book, despite her one subterfuge. That said the basis for their marriage was a bit hard to believe. Affectioons still feel like Ms.
On a side note- the last book from the author that I read, “Love’s First Bloom” I did not enjoy at affecgions. The mother of three grown children, she is a full-time high school teacher in southern New Jersey who spends her summers writing on Anna Maria Island in Florida.
I love that she hasn’t become bitter but truly wants to do good wherever she can. I know from glancing at Amazon that others have loved this book, so take this review with a grain of salt and affecrions for taking time to read my personal opinion.
Parr’s earlier book, Hearts Awakening was her best but this is definitely an improvement over Love’s First Bloom. Assured by Harrison the sham marriage would be be dissolved as soon as they arrived back home and he consults his lawyers, Annabelle is relieved.

I enjoyed this book very much. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Aug 15, Brooke Barenfanger rated it liked it Shelves: Not only are they handcuffed together, but they are being forced, at gun-point, by the local sheriff, to get married! Especially when the woman he was forced to marry turns out to be most becoming I really like historical fiction, so the storyline appealed to me. But he changed gradually throughout the novel.
Yes, regardless of the circumstances remarraying after a divorce is adultery unless the delka dies and God does not “lead” any child of his into something so clearly against his word. She meets Harrison Graymoor- a man whose reputation especially with the ladies, precedes him.
I did enjoy the ‘s setting. It wasn’t terrible, even though it was predictable, but it did not WOW me either. I’m always a fan of the reluctant rogue affectiona gets “tamed” by love and Harrison Graymoor definitely fits the bill.
Hidden Affections (Hearts Along the River, #3) by Delia Parr
And the story seemed rather unrealistic considering Annabelle’s values as parrr with her actions or lack thereof. Her mother died after being very sick for a long while, her father passed away when she was young and her husband divorces her after only a week of marriage. Parr lacked some of the finesse of her other novel which I can quickly devoured. N Annabelle Tyler, scarred from a divorce not her choosing, finds herself being forced to marry a man because of the dubious circumstances that well meaning people find both she and a man by the name of Harrison Graymoor in.
I have a hiden problems with so called Christian authors trying to justify adultery. Come on their journey as they try to deny their growing attachemnt to each other and eventually must give in to their basic needs of hope, faith, and love.
The author made Annabelle strong- without coming off as arrogant or stubborn. I would have preferred a little less tension. I really liked the honesty and strength of Annabelle.
I felt I was just dropped down into a story well underway and I struggled with the feeling I was missing out on some details thereby. I didn’t like Harrison Graymoor at first. Harrison’s past, a philanthropic cousin with his eye on Annabelle, and the appearance of Annabelle’s ex-husband threaten the tentative relationship growing between Harrison and his “wife. As the Bible says, “divorce is as violence”. Lists with This Book.
