Forgiveness is the only cure for heartbreak. But can Penny forgive the man she holds responsible for her brother’s death?
When her mother died from pneumonia, Penny Cartwright was heartbroken. But now, after burying her younger brother just 12 years later, she is devastated. Anger, guilt, and sorrow cloud Penny’s mind, and the last thing she wants is to be reminded of her pain—but that’s exactly what happens when a stranger comes to town.
Trevor Reynolds has been chasing fame for more than a dozen years, but his musical career can’t get off the ground. While on the road, an accident kills his young drummer, Brad Cartwright. Trevor wasn’t behind the wheel, but he still blames himself… and so does Brad’s sister, Penny. Now Trevor finds himself in Kings Meadow, determined to follow through on his final promise to his friend.
Still feeling the pain of Brad’s death, Penny and Trevor must learn that forgiveness is the only thing that can heal their hearts. And if they do, something beautiful may rise from the ashes of heartbreak.

In Robin Lee Hatcher’s newest contemporary romance and addition to her widely popular King Meadows series, Keeper of the Stars, I believe it will satisfy every fan of romance books. Breaking through the ashes of disappointments and hurt, Penny Cartwright learns to find forgiveness and love. On the other hand, Trever Reynolds comes to King Meadow after making a promise to Brad, Penny’s deceased brother, and learns to let go of his past anger and follow completely after God. Using plenty of descriptive images, King Meadows, Idaho came to life in my imagination filled with a surrounding cast of characters who show the good side to a close-knit community. I really enjoyed watching Penny and Trevor mature as they slid off the past anger and allow love to thaw even their darken hearts. Using the right amount of dialogue and prose, I felt like I was walking along Penny and Trevor as they traveled through this difficult time in their life. I enjoyed seeing their path to transformation. Some of my favorite stories have the characters doing a complete 180 when it comes to their viewpoint on life, and Hatcher does exactly that. She isn’t afraid to dig deep and show the dark side of the human soul. I, also, truly enjoyed how Hatcher allowed the characters to question God, which reminds me of what I do. I may believe in God and study his Word every day, but there are still moments of asking him why?
True to the contemporary romance genre, Robin Lee Hatcher’s Keeper of the Stars will satisfy romance fans and give them a joy ride as they travel the road of pain and forgiveness to reach the happily-ever-after. I highly recommend this book for fans of Becky Wade, Melissa Tagg, and Beth K. Vogt.
