Hangin' by a Moment
(Deep Haven Collection #5)
By Andrea Christenson
Presented by Susan May Warren
Christian Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 304 Pages
September 14, 2121 by Sunrise Publishing


He just wants to erase his past. She can’t seem to escape hers. But facing it might put their future in jeopardy.

The day Jack Stewart walked out of jail, he vowed to keep his conviction a secret. The whole thing was just a terrible mistake, and he did his time. Now he wants a new life in a sleepy town where no one knows his name. Deep Haven is the perfect place to start over as a chef. The last thing the former pararescue jumper wants is to get involved. But when Boone Buckam—the guy he owes for getting him out of the slammer—asks for help, how can he refuse?

Colleen Decker has already escaped evil once—as a teenager, she was kidnapped by a murderer. But she’s put all that behind her as a trauma nurse in Minneapolis. Or maybe not, because a freak mistake in the ER sends her past crashing down on her. She needs a timeout in her hometown of Deep Haven. She doesn’t plan to stay—even when she’s roped into the job of flight nurse for the town’s Crisis Response Team chopper. Colleen’s not sure why she’s drawn to danger, but she’ll be safe enough—after all, she’ll need training, and her teacher is a handsome former pararescue jumper. What could go wrong?

When Jack said he didn’t want to get involved, he especially meant his heart—but being with Colleen feels like a fresh start. He’ll even climb aboard a chopper again, despite his vows. They’re headed for a happy ending…

But secrets never stay buried in a small town. And when disaster strikes one snowy night, they’ll both have to decide if the past will destroy them…or if it just might lead them home.

Cozy up to this perfect Deep Haven drama about discovering a season of second chances.

My Review

HANGIN' BY A MOMENT is a story of second chances and redemption set in a small town. Great characters, the cozy feel of the small town, learning to build faith and a sweet romance make up this enjoyable read.

I really liked these characters. Jack is just a good guy regardless of how he lets a few mistakes and his assumptions about his father define him. Colleen is a woman who has faced some tough things and is working through her own demons. They hit it off in Deep Haven, but both don't really want a relationship, particularly Jack. They have a lot to work through individually to really be able to trust each other. I enjoyed their friendship and how that developed into something more, including some pretty swoon-worthy moments. The author also did really well with all the technicalities with working on the rescue team and particularly being a flight nurse. There were some pretty intense moments that definitely added to this story. Weaved throughout was a story of love and acceptance from God that especially Jack needed to learn.

In the end, was it what I wished for? If you're a fan of Deep Haven and the other books in this series, then you'll definitely love this newest addition. It's also a great story for readers who enjoy sweet, inspirational, small-town stories with great characters.
