This book has it all--
"This is one of the most fulfilling and wonderful romances I've read in a long time. I'm also so honored Melanie Moreland included a nod to my books (cue uncontrollable squeeing). I loved this gorgeous, heartwarming read and can't wait to read more in the series!"- Scarlett Scott, USA Today Best Selling Author of Notorious Ladies of London
I ignored life around me until I finished --
"This standalone is the first of a new generation that is everything I loved about The Contract blown up. The scorching heat, the hurt and anger, the broken grumbly hero with the huge heart he knows nothing about. A top 2021 read for me, My Saving Grace had it all and I can't wait for more of the ABC Corp!"- Stephanie Rose, author of Never Too Late series
In awe of the brilliance --
"In true Melanie Moreland fashion the reader is once again surrounded by characters that feel like they are family. Hopes and dreams are riding a very thin line and the reader turns each page needing more while at the same time they are in awe of the brilliance that is another Melanie Moreland masterpiece."- The Overflowing Bookcase

Did you love Richard and Katy in The Contract? What about the boys of BAM? Well, in My Saving Grace Ms Moreland introduces us to the next generation from these two great series starting with Grace Van Ryan (oldest child of Richard and Katy).

Grace is a promising law intern who finds herself with a mutual atraction to her supervisior, Jaxson. For those of who have read The Contract the situation between Grace and Jaxson has echos of Richard and Katy, but this is definitely a different, unique story.

The first half of My Saving Grace is told almost competly from Grace's point of view. I enjoyed getting to meet the characters through her. I rooted for her and I worried about her. The relationship between Grace and Jaxon at this point was fraught with peril and Ms Moreland did an excellent job of keeping us guessing about where things were going, especially as Jaxson definitely had "lion with a thorn in his paw moments."

In the second half of the book, we get to see things from both Grace and Jaxson's point of view. I continued to like and root for Grace, but discovered that I also really liked Jaxson too. Learning more about his background explained so much about him that I found myself hoping these two could find a way to talk and move out of their own way.

The seconday cast here is slightly large as you have the Van Ryan and BAM families intermingling, but the key players that a reader needs to keep track of are realatively few. While technically a stand alone read and the beginning of a new series, I would recommend that readers read at least some of the previous series books first as there are references to the older stories.

New York Times/USA Today bestselling author Melanie Moreland, lives a happy and content life in a quiet area of Ontario with her beloved husband of twenty-seven-plus years and their rescue cat, Amber. Nothing means more to her than her friends and family, and she cherishes every moment spent with them.

While seriously addicted to coffee, and highly challenged with all things computer-related and technical, she relishes baking, cooking, and trying new recipes for people to sample. She loves to throw dinner parties, and also enjoys traveling, here and abroad, but finds coming home is always the best part of any trip.

Melanie loves stories, especially paired with a good wine, and enjoys skydiving (free falling over a fleck of dust) extreme snowboarding (falling down stairs) and piloting her own helicopter (tripping over her own feet.) She's learned happily ever afters, even bumpy ones, are all in how you tell the story.
