On My Kindle - Shades of Morning by Marlo Schalesky

Marnie Wittier's tough exterior hides a broken heart and a belief that she's unworthy of love. When she meets Taylor Cole, she's wary of his kindness. He ignites a glimmer of hope in her, but everything comes to a halt when she makes a mistake that will cause even Taylor to reject her. Her solution: run.

Marlo Schalesky is a new-to-me author. This book grabbed my attention and never let go. Normally, flashbacks irritate me, but the ones in this story worked well. I thought I'd figured out the mystery, but she threw in a curve at the end which caught me off guard.

Five stars for this heartwarming story of redemption.

I do use flashbacks especially in short stories. They are tricky though! This book has intrigued me! Thanks for the review.
