With maturity comes awareness and Angelina Jordan’s feeling have grown into love for Joshua. Now she only needs to convince him that her love is that of a woman, not the crush of an inexperienced girl. Along the way, she will come to met and love his family as much as she loves her own.

Dr. Joshua McGuire has always been attracted to Angelina, his ability to tease and provoke her, a welcome respite from the seriousness of his work. Later he sees her as the responsible woman that she has become and soon starts to desire more from their friendship. But a doctor exchange program and a misunderstanding leads Joshua to wonder if they ever stood chance at true happiness.

Joshua and Angelina have a unique relationship they started out needling each other in harmless fun. Then with age, they developed a friendship that blossomed into love, complete with all the misunderstanding and everyday events thrown in their way. When a shooting nearly robs Joshua and Angelina of a very dear friend, they find their love strengthened and then put to the test by Joshua’s career and Angelina’s life-threatening illness.

Ms. Gummels’ second story following the Jordan family with Angelina and Dr. Joshua was laced with a light heartedness that make you smile, but do not be fooled, the drama was neatly woven within to reveal the history of two fantastic men. One I hope we will see again. The writing was nearly flawless. The situations and conflict rose from everyday occurrence making this novel one that every reader could relate too.
