Hello, everyone. Happy Summer! I can’t believe it is the beginning of the summer season. I have several more books to share with you in the coming weeks. Plus there are some updates happening with my book review programs. I hope to continue to review these awesome books for you in the future months. Anyway… let’s dive into today’s latest read.
Today we are going to take a look at Rebecca Jepson’s newest book in the ‘My Heart Belongs in…’ Series, “My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado–Millie’s Resolve.”
We meet Millie Cooper, a fisherman’s daughter, as doctor’s assistant to Doctor Murphy in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Millie has been residing in Glenwood Springs for the past seven years since she was left dreadful heart broken by Stephen Drexel on Nantucket Island. She thought that moving away to pursue a new life would heal her hurts. Instead her past meets back up with her in this small Coloradoan town.
John Drexel, brother of Stephen Drexel, has journeyed far in order to help his mother’s ill health and to pursue some business deals. John Drexel is in need of an nurses aid to his mother and his pregnant sister-in-law Florence. When he goes to speak with the local doctor, he discovers Millie Cooper is the doctors assistant. Although John knows that his mother may treat Millie uncouth due to her financial standings and the previous encounter, he feels she is the best choice for the job. Millie prayerfully considers the offer.
When Millie reluctantly accepts the offer John Drexel proposes, her world is turned up side down and she does not understand why God has lead her to help the individuals (the family) that hurt her so many years ago. Not only does Millie have to take care of the ill-mannered Katherine Drexel, but the situation becomes worse, as Millie must somehow help Stephens’ wife, who is dealing with a difficult pregnancy. On top of all the difficult situations, John soon draws a attraction toward Millie and enjoys the companionship of her in the Drexel house. But he does not know how to express nor handle the feelings.
What will John do with the feelings he possesses? Will he hide and lock them deep inside, never to let them out? Does Stephen Drexel still deep down have feelings for Millie? How can Millie face Stephen after all that has happened between them? Will she be able to forgive the wrongs that the Drexels have put upon her? Well…. you will have to find a copy for yourself.

This book was great read. The book kept you interested in this crazy love triangle. Every twist and turn keeps you wanting to read more and more. Also, faith was a strong factor in this book and the main message of this novel was to learn how to forgive others, even if they’ve hurt you more than anything you can imagine. Hearts can forgive, especially with God’s help and grace. Lastly, I want to thank Barbour Publishing for the complimentary copy of this wonderful novel. I was not obligated to post a review, but I felt it was only right to give my opinion so others can find good books to read.
