Can Chelsea and Jordan find their child, and rediscover each other?

When Chelsea Montgomery vanished eleven years ago, her hometown thought she’d been abducted. In truth, she'd given up the daughter she'd secretly had with Jordan Case.

Now he confronts her to help find the child. With a little girl's fate hanging in the balance, will the uneasy partnership -- stained by the past -- transform into something else?

Once upon a time, she made a big mistake that she thought would bring the world crashing down around her. Once upon that same time, he had no clue he participated in said mistake. Now he knows part of what happened and he’s not about to take no for an answer.

Sound interesting? Then you need to read Confessions by Wendy Ely.

This story has characters you won’t forget. The premise is interesting and a tad sad in spots. You feel like you’re a part of the world these characters live in and you want to see them get their happily ever after.

That being said, there were a few things that brought the story down for me. Chelsea is a unique heroine. She’s done things she’s not proud of. At the beginning of the story, I really didn’t like her much. Her actions came across as selfish and hard to fathom, but as the story progresses, you see her grow as a person. By the end, she does redeem herself and it’s nice to see.

Jordan, for all his sexy hero goodness, has some sides that I thought were a tad suspect. But you have to understand where he’s coming from emotionally. He’s been in some rough spots in his life and it makes you love him all the more. Although I had a hard time buying into his opulence, I still liked this character.

There were a handful of editing errors that took me out of the story, but all in all, this is a fun read.

If you want a story that will make you think and smile, then you need to read Confessions. I give this story 3.5 cherries.
