Brett Fraser has left his job after an art scandal and has decided to travel the Southwest to find himself again and renew his faith in God. When parked along the edge of a road one morning he sees Rafaela De Silva out jogging when she suddenly falls and injures her ankle. Brett offers to take her to the hospital and soon finds himself falling for her.
Rafaela’s family finds themselves on hard times. Her art gallery has been failing, her sister has health issues and she seems to be having one accident after another in her life. Brett coming into her life and family brings a bit of happiness they haven’t had in a while but is there something a bit shadier going on to bring about these problems??
Sante Fe Sunrise is a bit of a Christian romance mixed with a bit of a thriller/mystery. The writing was wonderful, as the Southwest scenery and Sophia’s artwork were being described it could just be pictured so well in the mind. The characters were also very lovely people that pulled at the heart strings as they dealt with things in their lives. I did however see where the mystery would be headed fairly early on in the story but it was still an intriguing read to see how it would all work out in the end and just how it would all be tied together.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
