Sweetbriar Cottage

Denise Hunter's latest novel, Sweetbriar Cottage, opens with its main character, Noah Mitchell. leaving his ranch in the north Georgia mountains to go into town to pick up some groceries; however, when he picks up his mail, he soon sees a letter from the IRS informing him that he is still married to Josephine.   Now he has to track her down to find out what went wrong.  After she was unfaithful to him, Noah had hoped to never lay eyes on again!

When Noah learns that the divorce papers were never signed by a judge, he lays the blame fully at Josephine's feet!  Josephine attempts to make up for her faux-pas by hand-delivering a new set of papers to be signed on Noah's doorstep.  Little does she know that the worst snow storm to hit north Georgia is about to strike!

After Noah and Josephine have been stuck together in his cabin for too long with no power, they venture out into the snow in pursuit of one of Noah's horses that has escaped from his barn.  Hold on to see what happens when they run out of fuel and have no way to call for help!

You will see both Noah and Josephine finally deal with the hurts from their past.   The only way they can find release is with the mighty hand of God!

I received this book from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
