    1. My, my, Sweetwater Gap was a heartwarming romance that went well beyond my initial expectations Denise Hunter writes great romance novels and I expected that but this was her best yet Few authors do allegories well, and if you look at Sweetwater Gap and Surrender Bay from a purely allegorical point of view, it s impossible to not be impressed with the amazing job the author did with both of them I have never read a story with a emotionally effective and believeable plot that exemplifies Christ [...]


    2. I read this book in one day It was so good My first Denise Hunter book and definitely not my last I love the subtle Christianity in it It was interwoven into the story and so natural Not forced at all It was real and emotional but not hallmark dramatic which I would have hated I cried at the end Excellent book


    3. This book was a quick read The plot was a parallel to Christian theology of sacrifice, with the heroine struggling with feelings of guilt after a childhood friend gives his life to save hers She feels unworthy, and spends her life running away from truth, family, and love When she finds out she has a disease that will kill her if it goes untreated, she decides this is God s judgement for the mistake she made resulting in her friend s death and refuses to take the medicine that will save her Goin [...]


    4. I can relate to the disease the main character had Yet another awesome story of how we fight God but He fights for us and pursues us.


    5. Denise Hunter has been one of my favorite authors ever since I first read Dancing with Fireflies, so as soon as I found an empty spot on my blog calendar, I hurried to fill it with one of her books Once again, I wasn t disappointed, as Sweetwater Gap has become one of my favorite novels I cannot help but be drawn in whenever a book s description makes it apparent that the story is full of secrets, just as this one does, so as soon as I picked it out to read and review this month, I couldn t wait [...]


    6. Denise Hunter has once again mastered a heart warming story with Sweetwater Gap, for it is bound to take every reader on a journey of forgiveness and unwanted love Josephine Mitchells is running from the ghosts of her past Her oppressive childhood memories of rejection and unworthiness resulted in her living a lonely life disconnected from her family, allowing no one into her heart However after a year of hearing nothing from her family since her father s death, Nate, her sister s husband, conta [...]


    7. Sharing my takeaway A guilt inducing phone call from her brother in law brings Josie Mitchell back home to Sweetwater Gap to help with the apple harvest Orchard Manager Grady Mackenzie doesn t appreciate the help, especially when Josie admits she came home to convince her sister to sell the orchard.Relating to Josie was a challenge She carried a staggering amount of guilt for years, choosing to bottle it up inside rather than talk about it with her sister or aunt, and wrestled with low self este [...]


    8. Sweetwater Gap is a story that will always live on my shelf God s redeeming, everlasting and unconditional love is beautifully illustrated through Josephine s precarious flirtation with life and death Ian, a ghost from her past, and Grady, her love for the future, bring Josie to a crossroads will she determinedly self destruct or will she accept the peace that passes all understanding and dare to live her life as it was intended Set in the beautiful apple country of the North Carolina mountains, [...]


    9. Excellent book I got right into it and didn t want to put it down I thought Josie s struggles were very believable I had a hard time with the direction the final third of the book went, although it wrapped up in a satisfactory way The characters were warm, real, and enjoyable I ll be reading of Ms Hunter


    10. I loved it SO good And heart warming And good for the soul It doesn t hurt that they are in the mountains of my home Asheville and Burnsville, NC, either D You get mad, you get glad, you hurt, you cry, and you rejoice Read it It ll be good for your soul, too.


    11. This was a real page turner I loved the combination of love story, forgiveness, learning to lean on God and redemption Zoe and Cruz fell in love when they were young They fell fast and hard Their relationship went beyond what was physically appropriate and Zoe ended up pregnant But before she can tell Cruz what happened, she was plagued with insecurity and hurt She then ended up running away from a father that was verbally abused her and a boyfriend that did not believe in her to go on the road [...]


    12. I found myself going back and forth between really enjoying this book and groaning in frustration.I can understand being in a dark place and thinking your choices are limited, yet Josie was a character that was hard to read I liked her and rooted for her to get it , however, I felt that she was making this potentially life altering choice all because of assumptions She was making people pay the price for things they didn t even know about I knew in her mind she was doing it out of love, but it j [...]


    13. Guilt it s a hard thing to live with This book does a great job of capturing the struggle when you have been given something you feel you don t deserve or that you should be punished for how your actions have affected others Josie is a very real character with whom you can commiserate, but also sympathize and want to help Grady is a wonderful foil to her character and perfectly un flawed, which we all love in our leading man, but it made him a little too good to be true.Excellent writing style a [...]


    14. The story itself was well written and engaging Unfortunately the Christian gospel message seemed a bit contrived and not fully a part of the story arc The relationship between Josie and Grady didn t seem fully developed and view spoiler the ease of which Josie s family accepts her decision to keep the details of Ian s death and her subsequent choice to allow herself to die from this treatable illness feels hide spoiler somewhat flat Like too many books I ve read, this one seems to approach some [...]


    15. I have to admit that the cover drew me in Love it However I am saddened to say that the book wasn t for me It was too predictable and the writing was lacking I felt that the main character was totally selfish in immature I didn t like her at all.Even though she did come around towards the end of the story, it was too little too late.If you are into romance with little substance you ll probably enjoy this story Maybe this should have been geared towards a younger audience such as teens


    16. Great story she brings it full circle but very emotional I debated putting it down because the main characters emotional state is that bad and I do not need my brain going there but then by the end she is walking out some healing and in a better place


    17. I read this book for the first time several years ago It was then that I discovered Denise Hunter novels Her stories are created around very real, very flawed characters who eventually find their way back to God and a faith that had faltered.


    18. I was surprised by how much this book compelled me to read it to the end There were descriptive parts about the orchard that I skipped over story junkie that I am but overall I was very impressed by how the author presents real problems of guilt, hurt and depression.


    19. An amazing sweet story of second chances Loved the setting in Sweetwater Gap in the apply orchard A story of family where faith and trust lessons are learned and lived Really liked this book Anyone who likes a good inspirational read will like this book.


    20. My visit to the apple orchard at Sweetwater Gap took me deep into Josie and Laurel s lives Adding a hunk like Grady, who had a past of his own, made for a delightful read Highly recommended.




    21. Really enjoyed this one characters and situations were very real and I enjoyed their slowly budding relationship The illness Josephine was battling also gave the plot added interest.


    22. Josie Mitchell left Sweetwater Gap with no intention of ever returning to her childhood home Running from ghosts of shame and self recrimination, she flees a horrible secret that s destroying her, body and soul She makes a life for herself in the big city, well and truly away from her hometown, her family, and the apple orchards she once loved Not even the death of her beloved father brings Josie back to Sweetwater Gap But when her sister Laurel needs help through a difficult pregnancy, the trou [...]


    23. Families plus horrendous guilt, then a disinterested Dad no wonder she left Coming back was hard, facing truth harder, but dawning of realization that God loved her and Grady as well made for a sweet ending.


    24. This was an excellent, well written book by Denise Hunter It followed a girl in her mid 20 s, named Josie, as she traveled back to her hometown after a long absence Growing up, she lost her mother at a young age and never felt good enough for her father Her sister, who was a few years older, tried to fulfill the mother role but Josie just felt threatened by it than anything On one birthday, she learned that the reason her father was so distant to her was because she was a twin and her twin died [...]


    25. This is my 4th Denise Hunter book in a row the others being the first 3 in the Chapel Springs series, and while I enjoy her characters and stories, I think it s time I take a break from her If I had read this at another time, I probably would have given it 4 stars, but as it is, I ve noticed many similarities between the ones I ve read, causing some confusion and frankly taking me out of the story a bit too much In each of the 4 I ve read, a main character sometimes than one suffers from a deep [...]


    26. This book was soooooo good, that I read it in one day Josie was running away from the past and when Grady came into the picture, I just knew that they would fall in love Well, they did, but not without some heartache involved Poor Josie, living with all that guilt, and then punishing herself because of it I wondered if anyone would find out the cause of her being sick all the time, besides Grady his promise not to tell anyone only prolonged her symptoms, which got worse as time went on It seemed [...]


    27. I expected this book to be good I ve read some of Denise Hunter s book and have really enjoyed her style and story lines I was amazed at how much I really loved this book Simple enough premise two sisters grow up, one leaves home never to return because of past memories and the other stays to live her life there Through a series of events the prodigal needs to return and help out She does so reluctantly and then has to face her past as well as her future and see how God is going to work everythi [...]


    28. I just started this book, but it is good so far Josie left sweet Water Gap a long time ago She did not say why yet, but it s got to be good And when she comes back to take the place of her sister because she cant work on the farm because she is pregnant with twins No one expected her to come even for this because she wouldnt come when her father was suffering from a stoke or even for her dads funeral So when she got there Grady the helper and owner of half the property is bascilly taking Josies [...]
