oh my gosh!! I loved this book! I loved Carter .. he was this quiet, sweet, virgin recluse who did not talk, had only one sorta friend and here he shows up at the wife lottery! There were lots of fun twists and turns in this book and it was wonderful watching him interact with Bailee. I just loved, loved, loved, loved Carter! He had a lot of terrible things happen to him throughout his life. He just breaks your heart. This is going to me on my re-read pile over and over again. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series as well as more books from Jodi Thomas.
