It was me. His younger sister’s three words turn Ashton’s world upside down. He must ask Jenna’s forgiveness, but can he risk his heart a second time? Even if Jenna can forgive him, dare he hope for a second chance at her love?

REVIEW: Jenna Harrison is a photographer and the owner of Picture Perfect Photography of Sweetwater, Washington.  As it’s June, Jenna is very busy with taking wedding and engagement photos.  When Jenna was jilted at the altar by Ashton Vance, her faith lagged until she found renewed happiness at the Sweetwater Community Church. While she happier now, she is not ready to date and is simply content to just carry on with her photography business.

Ashton Vance is a successful attorney whose father is a judge.  Ashton broke off with Jenna after accusing her of something she did not do.  Her hurt and anger is deep after suffering the financial consequences of their cancelled wedding not to mention the humiliation she suffered after his accusation in front of her friends, church, and customers.  But with the help of her pastor, she has been able to take on other jobs to pay off the wedding debts.

As it turns out, Ashton’s sister, Amber, was the guilty one by telling her brother and father a lie about Jenna.  To top it off, the spoiled girl now wants Jenna to photograph her upcoming wedding!  Ashton is now kicking himself for believing his sister and turning his back on Jenna.  Is there some way he can entice Jenna to photograph Amber’s wedding and forgive him too?  Can Jenna learn to trust him again?

This is a wholesome and sweet story about love and forgiveness and I enjoyed it very much.
