From back cover:

A Midwife with a Major Injury
Life gets a lot harder for Amish midwife Kristi Lapp when a buggy wreck lands her in the hospital and leaves her with a pronounced limp.  Among her biggest concerns is the well-being of her dog, Chinook, as she is no longer able to keep up with the high-energy Siberian Husky.  Adding insult to injury, Krisiti fears she'll never marry for love, for what man would willingly wed a woman who needs help with even the most basic of household tasks?
A Vet with a Void in His Heart
Shane Zimmerman moved to Seymour for a fresh start.  The veterinarian is still reeling from the loss of his wife and his unborn child.  The coroner deemed aneurysm as the cause of death, but Shane still blames the Amish midwife--specifically, the herbal remedies she presribed.
A Difficult Decision to Make
Shane meets Krisit when he discovers her wrecked buggy and takes her to the hospital.  Soon, what started as common courtesy turns into a strong mutual attraction.  Yet the obstacles that bar a relationship between them are many.  Will they find a way to stay together?  Or will their differences prove too divisive to resolve?

My Review:
This is the first book I've read by Laura V. Hilton and I really enjoyed it.  I'm a very huge fan of Amish fiction and this one ranks up there with the best. 
I really feel for Kristi and Shane as they try hard to fight their attraction to each other.  Krisit feels she'll never find someone to love her because of her limp, but Shane loves her despite her injury, but they can't be together because of their cultural differences.  Throw in a hyper Siberian Husky who loves them both, and Shane's pregnant sister, who, by the way, wants Kristi to deliver her baby,  this is a great story.  You have to stay tuned to the next book to find out what happens for sure with Kristi and Shane.
Great job Laura, you did a great job with this story, you definitley leave the reader wanting more.

I received my review copy from Whitaker House for an honest review.  This tour is sponsered by LovenGod Promotions.
