Review: All There is

For this review, I chose All There is by Violet Duke.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Violet Duke debuts an emotional series about letting go, starting over, and trusting in the redemptive power of love.

Emma Stevens is ready for a fresh start in Juniper Hills, but she still lives with the impossible guilt of her past: having failed to rescue her little stepbrother from a fire that decimated her childhood home and her family. Her next-door neighbor may have been the one to drag her out of the burning building that night, but it doesn’t exonerate him since he caused the fire. Not even when he shows up fourteen years later to help salvage her bakery.

Jake Rowan may not have been able to save Emma’s brother from the fire, but at least he was able to save his own brother. By taking the fall and the punishment for him, Jake managed to protect his older brother’s future…but it cost him the girl of his dreams.

Now Jake finds himself on Emma’s doorstep once again. Not to save her life this time, but to repair it. And more importantly, her heart, if she’ll let him.

This is the first book in the Juniper Hills series.  I can not wait to read book #2.  I hope it will be about Megan and Carter.  This was also my first book I read by Ms Duke.

Jake Rowan has lived his life with a big secret and it cost him the girl of his dreams.  Now 14 years later, he walks in Emma's bakery to put in a bid for the remodel.  Jake has no idea who the owner is.  Emma came to Juniper Hills to start over.  To make a fresh start with no one who knows her and her sister, Megan, story.

When I finished this book, all I could say was wow!  So many emotions were going through me by the end of this book.  Raw emotions.  Well written believable characters.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
