This is the first time I read a book by Jaci Burton; I didn’t realize Hope Burns was part of a series until I started on the book. With this book, I feel like it can be read as a standalone. Of course, it may get confusing with the focus on the supporting characters and not knowing their history. But I believe that one good thing about this book, it catches your interest and makes you want to read the other volumes.
Hope Burns is a second chance romance story focusing on the relationship between Molly Burnett and Carter Richards. I’m a huge fan of these romance stories so I was curious to read this book.
I found Molly’s character to be a free spirit. She likes to jump from town to town until she finds the right place for her. After being away for many years, she returns to her hometown and is immediately greeted by her ex-boyfriend, Carter Richards. With Carter, he’s every woman’s fantasy. Rugged, kind-hearted, and dreamy. I immediately fell in love with him.
As Carter and Molly’s relationship reignited, I found myself rooting for them. I understood Molly’s hesitation due to what happened in the past, yet I was hoping she’d overcome it to be with the man she loved.
While I like how everything turned out at the end, I felt it ended abruptly. I would’ve liked more closure, maybe an epilogue showing the couple.
