Little by little, Ashton and Jenna kept being thrown together, and through that, forging a friendship. But, when an issue of trust comes up again, Jenna feels her heart tested. Once again, truth is revealed and Jenna and Ashton must learn that love isn't easy--sometimes it's messy, forgiveness must be complete and without reservation, and trusting God to help one find His Plan isn't easy, but it is necessary for a "picture perfect love."
This story reminds us how important it is to let God's Plan work through the messy stuff in life in order to find the long term love with a partner. Forgiveness and trust are as essential as love, and Walking in Faith will get each of us through anything. I highly recommend this beautifully written story!
This is Ash and Jenna's story. I like how we get to explore both Ash and Jenna's thoughts and feelings. I think McClone does a great job of showing the characters struggle with what is most peoples natural reaction would be and for them to also be willing to listen to God and learn how to forgive and move forward.
I really enjoyed this second chance story, and I appreciated the message that God has a plan and we just do not always realize what that plan is.
I look forward to reading more of the books in this series (by different authors.)
I struggled with this story because I genuinely liked Jenna. I am also a sucker for second chance love. I was behind Jenna and Ash finding their way back to each other and falling in love again. I felt like both had made big changes in their lives and were coming back to the table with a new perspective. However, relationships are about trust and faith and when Ash betrays Jenna's trust again, I personally had a hard time getting behind them. The way Ash was so quick to not believe her again made me question his growth. I understand forgiveness and did applaud Jenna for finding it in her heart to forgive again, but I would have been reluctant to tell her to trust again.
So for the most part, I did like this story. It is a sweet second chance love story. I just couldn't get behind them for a third time.
-- MY THOUGHTS >
Judging a Book by it's Cover:
All-neutral coloration lacks a depth or complexity found in other covers. Perhaps it's simple, straightforward and clean appearance is indicative of what's beyond the cover. However, when words like "bland", "boring" and/or "vanilla" pop into mind, you have to hope that this is *not* an indicator to what's between the sheets. The synopsis sounds interesting enough and I do enjoy second-chance stories.
They were engaged only after a brief acquaintance and he cancelled the wedding in spectacular fashion, leaving her in financial ruin. Two years later, he realizes that he was misinformed and terribly wrong to have dumped the only woman he's ever loved, but can she forgive and trust him enough to allow him a second chance?
This is an Inspirational Romance in third-person POV. Not a book I'd normally choose to read of my own accord, but I agreed to read it for a wonderful lady that I'd like to consider a friend. The lead characters are not inhumanly perfect, they have flaws and make mistakes - and they are trying to learn from them and become better people. Strong and mature, regardless all they've been through. It's not often that I actually like the female lead better, but in this case I kind of did for the simple fact that he was seriously a jerk for what he did to her to begin with! The secondary characters are a fortifying addition, although I was *not* a fan of Amber. Dialogue and Interaction is very good: age-appropriate, smart. natural feeling. The plot is a little one-dimensional, but this is more of a novella than a full-length novel, so I'm not too surprised by the lack of complexity and depth. There is a strong and deep focus and root in religion and faith within this book. The writing style allows the story to move along at a smooth pace. Predictability is on average with books like this; minor but not detracting. The conclusion is wrapped up in a solid manner. Overall, it's a cute, quick and clean read.
