About the book:
Didi O’Brien is engaged—at least she was an hour ago. Now she’s not so sure. Her fiancé, the suave Kevin Cabot, has just revealed that he’s been unfaithful, and he’s not the least bit sorry. Reeling from the betrayal, with her plans for a happily-ever-after life in doubt, she prays for direction. The answer comes as a complete surprise. God has someone better in mind.
Middle school teacher, Jake Montgomery, is struggling with some issues of his own. Sadly, a year previously his fiancée had been killed in a car crash. Battling anger and despair, in a mountain-top experience, Jake wrestles with the Almighty, and is ready to live again. In his youth, he’d felt an unmistakable call to the ministry but, like the prophet Jonah, since then, he’s been running hard in the wrong direction.
Through a crisis of faith, and glimpses of mercy, Didi and Jake find each other. But can they find the strength to resolve the many obstacles that conspire to keep them apart?
My review (4-stars)
I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this book as the author is new to me. I am pleased to say that I really enjoyed the author’s writing and her characters.
I quickly became caught up in the story from the beginning and loved seeing Didi O’Brien decide that she didn’t need to put up with her fiance, Kevin Cabot anymore. She was a sweet young lady and deserved much better. Jake Montgomery is dealing with some heavy things in his own life but he is sweet and kind, something Kevin is not.
The storyline flows very nicely touching on various topics ranging from deceit, depression,and anger. There is romance and suspense all blended perfectly to make this a book well worth reading.
I received a complimentary copy of Love, Lies and Fireflies and have given my honest opinion.
