"I really enjoyed this romance, the characters and their journey. It was very moving, endearing and engaging.
I appreciate the writing style, the emotional pull, the way the story unfolds.
I love to feel satisfied after reading a book, and this one does just that!
Very enjoyable read. Highly recommend." ~ Review by Kimberly

About the Author

I grew up in Ohio where I currently live with my husband and our two rescue Labradors. Some of my favorite things include reading, shopping, pepperoni pizza, Hershey bars and hanging out with my two grown sons. I also love dogs; so going to the dog park is cheap entertainment for my husband and I!
 
Growing up an only child, I had many imaginary friends. I believe this - and a love of books - fueled my desire to write. It was many years later that my dream of becoming a published author came true.
 
My books, "Devon's Choice" and the "The Trouble With Charlie" are published by Astraea Press.

I have yet to read a book that can be categorized as “Christian fiction,” and that compelled me to choose Catherine Bennett’s Devon’s Choice. Going into Devon’s Choice, I wasn’t familiar with the criteria that makes a book fall under Christian fiction, so I went into Bennett’s story with no expectations, and what I found was a funny and uplifting story—a nice quick read. The story centers on Devon’s struggle with her beliefs after her mother dies. I think that is what makes Devon such a relatable character. Even if you don’t have the same religious beliefs as Devon, I think it is very relatable to go through life doubting your beliefs when a major tragedy occurs. In the beginning of the story when Devon is dating Michael (the biggest jerk on the planet), I thought the ‘decision’ Devon was going to be making had to do with leaving Michael and choosing Brandon (the sweetest guy on the planet). I remember thinking how cliché that would be, but luckily Bennett didn’t make it about a guy, she made it about something much more than that.

Devin’s decision was ultimately about coming to terms with the obstacles life has thrown her way and how to accept those obstacles. Don’t get me wrong, Devon’s Choice is defiantly a sweet love story between Devon and Brandon, but it was also about the platonic relationships she has, such as her relationship with her father. I also love Devon’s relationship with her best friend Meagan. I couldn’t help but laugh every time Meagan shows up to give Devon her ‘wisdom.’ I also love the adding of Irish culture—from her dad with his love of corn beef and cabbage to the very end when Devon adds a hint of green to her ideal ending. I couldn’t help but root for Devon as I flipped through her story, and I would defiantly read another of Bennett’s stories!

I received the book Devon’s Choice in exchange for an honest review; I would give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
Devon Murphy is a young woman that lives at home with her widowed father, Charles, and her dog, Bubby. Devon works part time at a coffee house and as a graphic designer. The story opens with Devon working at the coffee shop with her BFF Megan where she meets a man, Brandon, aka “Black Coffee Guy.” Things are complicated because she is currently dating Michael, a successful businessman. Devon breaks things off with Michael soon after meeting Brandon because she realizes that they do not have a future and she is not entirely trusting of Michael or his actions. Meanwhile, Brandon and Devon quickly grow closer after their first meeting due to their mutual physical and moral attraction. Both Devon and Brandon have experienced the loss of a parent so they have an additional bond in addition to their physical attraction to one another. The most interesting relationship in this book is between Devon and her father. Charles is the warmest father who adores his daughter and that is the driving force of this story.
This book is a short contemporary Christian romance. The main characters are not Christians; however, there are many Christian themes in the book. The characters struggle with Christianity as they deal with falling in love and loss. I wanted to like this book, I even cried during one scene; however, I must state that I often cry while reading. In reality, I only had lukewarm feelings for the main characters, and I often felt that the writing was a bit flat. Honestly, I grew tired of the author’s descriptions of what everyone was wearing, people carrying out daily mundane tasks, and the overall flat feeling of the narrative.

Devon's Choice is an inspirational Christian romance that follows the story of Devon Murphy as she works through the uncertainties and choices in life. Her personal journey leads her to opening up to all of life's experiences, standing by her beliefs, discovering what is really important in life, and what will bring her true love and happiness.

This is a wonderful story that easily draws the reader into Devon's story. You can't help but feel compassion and empathy for Devon as she deals with issues in her life, it is easy to relate to her and cheer her on as she comes to terms with the choices and decisions that she makes. I enjoyed watching as Devon and Brandon worked through their personal issues with faith, belief, and trust, so that their budding romance could be given a chance to develop into a loving and happy relationship.

Devon's Choice is a very touching story that is full of emotion, it will tug at your heartstrings and leave a smile on your face.

I don't know how to rate this one. 2 stars seems too low, but 3 stars seems too much. I finished this book a month ago, so I don't remember all of the specifics, but when reading it, for a Christian book, it focused a bit too much on the looks of people. When reading from the point of view of the male lead character, he would be thinking about her neckline, how close her curves fit into his curves, even the word erotic was used. All of this didn't seem to fit into the Christian genre. There was simply too much focus on that.

If the story had been longer, things fleshed out a bit more, I would probably have liked it better too. All in all, it was just nothing special. It was interesting enough to read, but the faith in it didn't seem genuine either. Plus, while it's a short book, it took me a couple of weeks to get through it, simply because I didn't have much motivation to pick it up.

I can't think of much that I specifically disliked about the story or anything really liked either, so it's right in the middle for me, 2.5 stars. The reason for me putting a 2 star rating instead of rounding up is because of all the focus on the physical.. The way it was done in this one bothered me and I wouldn't round down if this wasn't categorized as Christian fiction.
