This was the first novel I have read by Angela Couch. It was an enjoyable romance and a quick read.
Elizabeth is under the impression that Axel’s father stole money from her father’s business and was the source of the complete ruination of her family and future. All blame lays squarely on his shoulders.
Revenge is the motive of all her actions. She must make them hurt as much as she has and retrieve all the money that is rightfully hers in the process. Her real target is the father, but Axel will do fine as collateral damage. Through a series of disasters, mostly of her creation, she reestablishes her relationship with God and discovers forgiveness. But is it too late to make amends with Axel, the man she has grown to love?
Elizabeth is a character whom you can relate with but makes you want to thunk her on the head and say “You should have had a V-8.” Axel is a man caught in the middle of a feud he didn’t know existed and suffers the consequences. You ache for him and hope for love and reconciliation.
While the book wasn’t what you would call deep or complex, it was an enjoyable read that helped you escape from reality for a few hours. I hope Axel and Elizabeth’s story develop and grow in perhaps future books. There are certainly many areas of growth they both could still experience and difficulties they could face together. They are a good pair and you won’t regret the time you spend reading it.
