A man trying to overcome his past. A woman trying to secure her children's future. Can they both learn to live in the present and discover that second chances do exist?

3.75 out of 5 stars

The Friar is a romance between a religious man that paid for his sins and a strong single mother trying to keep her ranch afloat. The story is sweet and easy to read. It also has a bit of a mystery and suspense.

Overall it's a solid book. Adam was just a bit too perfect for my taste. Honestly, I didn't find anything special about any of the characters, so to me this was a bit... boring.
