As book 5 in a series, this story continues the Whitman family story. Link Whitman is in his late 20s and moving along without direction. He’s got a dumpy apartment, a job that has him working doubles all the time, and no love life. He finds a new friend in Shayla Michaels. Shayla has her own troubles in being the primary caregiver for her brother’s daughter, Portia. Being responsible for a 5-year-old, plus being the other half of her father’s bakery business doesn’t leave much time for Shayla to get on with her own life, either.
Faith and family are the core of this story. I felt the author did a decent job in making sure to bring up the racial issues of the Link/Shayla relationship. This story rounded out the series well and wrapped things up nicely for the Whitman family.
Thanks to Abingdon Press for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
