Honeysuckle Dreams, by Denise Hunter, is book two in A Blue Ridge Romance series. This is a good story of a single father, Brady, who is fighting to keep his infant son, Sam. His ex-wife died and now her parents want Sam. Their daughter tricked Brady into marrying her when she found out she was pregnant with another man’s child. His friend, Hope, cares for Sam and arrives while Brady’s attorney is there. The attorney interprets the situation as Hope and Brady being engaged. The attorney tells Brady that being engaged will help him keep Sam. The judge rules in Brady’s favor at the first trial. The attorney tells Brady he should be married by the time the next trails comes, to keep Sam. When Hope finds out, she volunteers to get married. She was in love once, the young man died and she never wants to be in love again. She feels marrying her good friend, Brady, and helping raise Sam will be enough for her.
I am really enjoying this series. The story is fast paced and I did not want to put the story down. This story brings back characters from the first story, which I enjoy. The thing in this story that really stand out for me is that Brady was left by his mother when he was little and now Brady wants to make sure Sam is not treated that way. He wants Sam to grow up with a father that loves him. I also appreciate the feeling Hope has and her struggle with faith to move on and let herself truly love Brady. I think anyone who enjoys contemporary fiction will enjoy this story.
