This was an excellent story. I love the whole theme of "marriage of convenience". Some stories that carry this theme find the lead characters bitter and somewhat hateful to one another. Not so with this story. Although there is apprehension on both Jared and Katie's part you see them trying to make the situation work while trying to honor God and each other. Jared and Katie are both believers but you see the struggle in them both as they try to follow God's standard. Both are dealing past things. I loved the dialog between Jared and Katie. Jared made my heart go pitter-pat. You can see what it was that Katie saw in him. Katie was someone who was very smart but felt totally lacking in the things see deemed valuable. The author really allowed you to experience the deep emotions in each of their hearts. I feel like I lived the story with them. I wouldn't classify this as an edge-of-your-seat read but the mystery surrounding who was after Jared is not revealed until the end. I really like that in a story. I would highly recommend A Family for Kate to those who love a great story with a great message.
NOTE: This was previously published as 'A Family for Kate' by LeAnne Hill.
I feel that these parts of the story could be redeemed by readdressing them in a follow-up novel perhaps.
Some examples are the grandparents who sued for custody - and Jared who never gets to forgiving them with his own childhood issues - but what happened with their relationship was barely touched on.
What about Jared's work partner from his previous job - what was his story - is he alive or really dead? REALLY wanted to know about that and was disappointed when nothing came of it.
What about the 'baddie' who was arrested - there is another whole story there that was barely even mentioned, when he and Jared worked together.
Just too many things started on but too underdeveloped for me and not given a satisfying and well-rounded conclusion.
However, the love story part of the book was very pleasant and sweet.
