Review: A Case for Forgiveness

A Case for Forgiveness
A Case for Forgiveness by Carol Ross
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

💙💙💙💙💙 Shay James is conflicted. Deep down she still loves Jonah Cedar, but she can’t reconcile herself to the fact that he chose to leave her 10 years ago to pursue his law degree at Yale.  Now he’s back in Rankins, Alaska, after only a few measly visits over the years, to help out his “ailing” grandfather. Shay is livid that Jonah has rarely bothered to visit his granddad after all he’s done for him.  She feels that Jonah has accomplished his goals in the form of money, career and material comforts, so why would he be interested in her again, or her comparatively unassuming life of running the Faraway Inn in a remote town?  Shay can tolerate Jonah’s brief existence in Rankins, but will a prolonged visit have the same effect on her resolve?  Can old embers be stirred up into a flame and reunite these seemingly incompatible lovers?
A Case For Forgiveness is the second book in the Seasons of Alaska series, and it was an excellent follow-up to the first, Mountains Apart. Whereas newer characters take center stage here, we get a glimpse at the lives of some of the former characters, and it was nice to see them make an appearance from time to time throughout the book. I enjoyed the pace of this book—for me it gained intensity toward the middle and kept me fixated until the end. I laughed out loud at some of the humorous parts, felt deeply touched by the romance aspects, and was mystified by the intentions of a mysterious character who finds her away into the lives of the James family. Overall I really enjoyed A Case For Forgiveness, and I expect that lovers of a sweet romance with a bit of mystery and a warm and fuzzy happy ending will too.  This book didn’t receive a 4.5 star rating from RT Book Reviews for nothing!!  Well done.
Thank you Carol Ross for a free copy of this book. In exchange I have provided an honest review.
