The Guy Next Door by Kate Palmer (LDS) Book Review & Giveaway!

About the book:
On the surface, Eva Black’s life seems practically perfect. The small-town kindergarten teacher is set to wed ambitious lawyer Sean Langley, and their plans for a dream wedding are well underway. Eva accepts that she will soon live life in the spotlight as a member of the prestigious Langley family, but can she overlook her fiancé’s tendency to dominate the details of her life and push the limits of her standards?
Mere weeks before the wedding, Eva is thrown into a traumatic, life-changing event that changes her view of family commitment and creates a sharp contrast between her ideals and Sean’s. With her engagement to Sean in jeopardy, Eva finds herself relying on the support and encouragement of Peter, her kind and attentive next-door neighbor. Faced with a choice between her penitent fiancé and the increasingly mysterious Peter, Eva is unprepared for the consequences—and peril—that come with her decision.
My Review:

Immediately upon starting this book, I was drawn into the relationship between Eva and Sean.  I was intrigued as to why Eva would be engaged to someone who seemed to want to run her life for her.  I was swept into Eva's journey as she began to battle within herself about choices that needed to be made.  Author Kate Palmer weaves a wonderful story of love, heartbreak, heartache, and determination to succeed!  I admired Eva's ability to receive inspiration and stick with it, even when it was difficult.  I felt so many emotions right along with Eva as she was happy, in love, sad, heartbroken and even scared!  I love a book that takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride and The Guy Next Door does just that!  I look forward to reading more from Kate Palmer!  Five Stars!  (This is and LDS novel)
