[The Red Rock, Colorado Series]
Harboring a secret she dared not share, Rose Phillips ended her relationship with Dr. Mike Mahoney two years ago. When a tragic accident places her under his professional care, she realizes her feelings for him are still very much alive. Torn between wanting to bare her soul and fearing he’ll reject her after he learns her secret, Rose struggles to resolve her dilemma.

Why Rose ended their relationship has always puzzled Mike. He’s never stopped loving her. Now that she’s back in his life, he wants more than anything to pick up where they left off. Rose appears receptive, but because of her actions trust is difficult. Dare he risk a second broken heart?

One secret keeps haunting Rose throughout her adult life.  It's the reason she told a man she loved that it wouldn't work out.  This secret eats at her.  But a turn of events that lead her back into Mike's life and a situation that Rose can't turn a blind eye, help her finally open up and spill her emotions.
What a beautiful story!  Loving Rose is full of characters that face situations in relation to real life.  Rose and Mike's second chance story brought a smile to my face and tears to my eyes.  The rising tension of  Rose's secret was intense and while it only took me a little while to guess what it was, I still didn't know the whole story until the author showed through flashbacks what happened.
Linda Hope Lee writes such great contemporary stories.  Won't you give Loving Rose a shot and fall in love as I did?
