Read Sweetbriar Cottage Online Free - When Noah and Josephine Mitchell discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down.
Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job, settling 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 for the first time in months, 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 okay, the 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?

First off let me start out by saying the cover is what drew me to this book first, ( It's absolutely gorgeous) then I saw it was by one of my favorite authors and I knew I had to read it. My only complaint is the cover, gorgeous as it is it doesn't fit my perceived notion of what the cover should...

"In Sweetbriar Cottage, Denise Hunter has written one of the best stories about emotional healing and forgiveness that I've read in ages. Her heroine, Josephine, is deeply wounded, and everything about Josie's present actions rings true to her painful past. Noah is the hero Josie desperately need...

Sweetbriar Cottage is a moving romance filled with layers of a love lost, the passion to reclaim it, and the tension of fighting for your life. This story digs deep with emotions and Denise Hunter's beautiful writing. I wanted the characters to find healing even when it seemed impossible. But jus...

I love Denise Hunter's books and this latest one is no exception. Her books read so smoothly that I usually devour them in a day or two. I loved this flawed, lovable heroine. She was "real" and not glossed over as with most Christian fiction heroines. That being said, I would only recommend this...

I'll be giving a real review later on...closer to publication, as per the publisher's request.
Cliff notes version:
I'm always eager for the next Hunter book, but I feel that this one is her most meaningful and heartfelt book to date, with a strong Christian message as well. Go ahead and order you...

I was in the mood for a realistic romance about marriage, so I picked this one up after a few of my reader friends said they really enjoyed it. I'm so glad I did! I was very surprised by the events that happened in the book - once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down.
I am not a rea...

As expected, another great book from Denise Hunter. Good storyline, good characters, good chemistry between Noah and Josie. I especially enjoyed the book being from the area. It made the story more real to me --- looking forward to her next book.

I love how Denise Hunter so often weaves the story of Jesus’ unconditional love for us into the hero’s pursuit of the heroine. Perhaps nowhere is this more clearly seen than in Sweetbriar Cottage. It takes a bit to get to that point though, for Noah is only human and just as flawed as Josie in hi...

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. It is by far my favorite!
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...
