Ten Thousand Charms by Alison Pittman

Ten Thousand Charms is the first book in the Crossroads of Grace series by Alison Pittman.  The story held promise for me as one of the descriptions compared it to a cross between Francine Rivers' Redeeming Love and a Jeanette Oak saga.  It pairs an ex-prostitute and an ex-boxer together.  Each has the challenge of raising a new-born in pioneer Oregon and decide to join up to help each other out.  Unfortunately, this book is so predictable, I just didn't enjoy it like I thought I would.  I would much rather have re-read Redeeming Love (again) as that is a story with much more depth and grace.
