Review:Persuasion A Latter-Day Tale by Rebecca H. Jamison

I stayed up till 4:00 am reading this book.  I think its the first book of Rebecca's that I have read. Hope not the last one. It's  an LDS romance of what happens when you run into ex-boyfriend and rethinks the past.
Anne is helping her dad who is in so much debt that he is loseing his house with a garage sale.  When Neil an old boyfriend shows up with his brother Jack Wentworth to look at the house.  Anne was once in engaged for a day to Neil but her parents did not want her to marry him.  She also was young and with her parents divorced Anne wanted to make sure it was right.
Now 8 years later Anne is still single and is going to stay with her sister Mary who is on bedrest and help out with her two nephews after work each day.  When she walks into Mary's frontroom and finds Neil with Mary's two single sister-in-laws, Hannah and Lily.  Both are interested in Neil, who is staying with his brother while he recovers from accident from car chase.
Neil is now a Police Captain and still single.  No one knows they used to date and had a bad breakup.  Neil hangs around Hannah and Lily a lot and Anne right next door staying at her sisters.   Neil avoids talking to Anne or even looks at her.
Anne keeps looking back at their relationship and how it ended. She has lots of regrets.  They keep running into each other, every time Anne thinks maybe he can forgive her something comes up in the way.
It keeps you interested in the story wanting to know what happens next. Who will Neil pick Hannah or Lily everyone tries to guess.
I liked the book it had no swearing or sex scenes in it.  A book I don't have to worry about my kids reading it. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
