Sweetbriar Cottage By Denise Hunter GIVEAWAY!

When Noah and Josephine discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down.
Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job and settled at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still married. When he confronts Josephine, they discover that she missed the final step in filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married.
Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the failed marriage—and botched divorce—was her fault, but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage behind them, the better for both of their sakes.
But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with Josephine is a test of Noah’s endurance. He wrestles with resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife—still beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any woman he’s ever known.
As they find themselves confronted with each other and their shared past, old wounds surface and tempers flare. But when they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she’s never been loved unconditionally by anyone—including him. Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine’s heart? And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah?

My Thoughts....
I am Hunters number one fan, so I says this from experience after reading everyone of her books and novellas. This is the best book she has written to date.
This is one of those books that you can't start when you have to cook and clean house and run errands. You have to start it at bed time and read all night because you can't put it down once you start reading. You will know love is worth fighting for after reading Sweetbriar Cottage.
Noah was the perfect man and Josephine well she grew on me. I was so happy with the outcome and I must say. I see another Hallmark movie in the making. I am so excited to share this book with everyone I know. 
This is a 5 star two times read. I HIGHLY recommend this story of love, healing, and redemption.. Run don't walk and get your copy.
