Solomon's Choice-- Emily Mims!!!!

I have to say- I didn't quite know what to expect from this book, given the rather odd story line that it seemed to have. I have to say- I was pleasantly surprised. I rather enjoyed it. There were definitely some moments that made me wonder- how in the world hasn't anyone caught onto what is going on here? Moments that made my heart break for all that Jack and Caroline had to go through in their quests for a child. And definitely moments that made me wonder why they couldn't have found one another much sooner in life.
I understood and respected the life and love that Caroline had with her former husband- let's face it, you couldn't not fall in love with their story. But what she shared with Jack- that's the stuff that makes us all swoon. While she was a girl with Aaron, she was a woman with Jack- and I believe that the growth there was crucial for her, regardless of how tragic the circumstances that led to that point. I think Jack and Caroline both had to lose everything, in order to truly gain it all.
This was a wonderful story, and I am thrilled to have been a part of the tour in order to share in Emily's words. 4 stars!!!



Together they will defeat the past.

When Dr. Caroline Stern moves to the Texas Hill Country to share custody of her rescued son, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with the little boy’s sexy father! 

ON CHRISTMAS DAY… the life of Dr. Caroline Stern changed forever. Her husband was murdered, her baby son kidnapped. When she found the boy again, he was with his biological father - a man Caroline never intended to meet.

There seems no obvious tie between Jack Briscoe and the violence of sixteen months prior, but Caroline just wants her son back - something Jack seems unwilling to grant. He wants the boy, too, and when a wily old country judge demands the two of them work out a shared custody arrangement, Caroline finds herself in Texas Hill Country for longer than expected.

Then she learns Jack wants her, too. And she might want him.

In the beautiful town of Verde, on the shores of Lake Templeton, she begins to rebuild her life. But the dark clouds of the past have not vanished completely, and one last storm of deceit remains. A choice must be made, and only the deepest love will see them through.




 “Tell me we have a chance to make this work.”
Caroline stiffened beside him. “What do you mean?”
Jack pulled back and sat up. “You know what I mean. Tell me we have a chance to make a relationship work.”
Caroline rolled away and sat up, too. “I thought you understood. I told you a month ago I’m not ready for a serious relationship.”
Jack leaned forward and glared into her eyes. “Then what the hell was tonight all about? You, me, the lovemaking? I thought it meant something.”
Caroline swallowed and reached for her nightshirt. “I was offering you tonight, Jack. Just tonight. Tonight was about the moon and the stars and the dancing. Tonight was about giving in to the attraction. Tonight was about doing what you’ve been trying to get me to do for the last six weeks. Yes, the sex was great, but…” Her eyes misted and she looked away.
“But?” Jack prompted.
“But it was just a fling, Jack. Just a romantic interlude between two consenting adults.”
