There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
(Though reviews are inherently subjective, I prefer to provide some organization to my opinions through the use of a personal rubric. The following notes may contain spoilers.)
Plot and Setting: 4 -- Plot has unique elements and no major holes, but a few shaky bits. Setting is clear and believable, with only minor inconsistencies. Timeline may be a bit hard to follow. I feel the random 2 month gap between the idea of a party and the actual thing is extreme, and a bit awkward. They really avoided dates that long?
Characters: 4 -- Main characters are relatable, realistic, interesting, and dynamic. I appreciate Andy's humble background and related defenses, and Lucy's vivacity and eagerness to help. Minor characters and villains may be slightly stereotyped or simplified.
Writing and Mechanics: 4 -- A handful of typos, punctuation issues, or word errors, but nothing that seriously hinders understanding. Weird formatting problems: paragraph indents and chapter breaks not all consistent. Good use of POV. Generally skillful writing.
Redeeming Value: 3.5 -- Incidental uplifting themes. Lucy's determination to help people is strong, but not always a focus. Not a lot of faith included, just mentions of Christianity here and there, in positive but non-specific ways. Sex, alcohol, violence, etc, are not glorified, but some shaky ground, eg. Andy constantly carrying a handgun, for reasons that weren’t very clear to me.
Personal Enjoyment: 3 -- I liked it. It was enjoyable and entertaining. I wouldn’t mind re-reading it someday, but it’s not a priority.
Contemporary, Christian, Romance
They say your life can change in a second. Lucy and her boyfriend are waking down the street when they see a elderly woman being robbed. She takes off after the robber while her boyfriend tucks tail and runs for the hills. For humble Lucy O’Brien her good deed turned into a 10 million dollar reward. Her destiny is forever changed.
Ian a multimillionaire decides to reward Lucy for her good deed and her service to the community. But he has an ulterior motive. He would love nothing more than to play match maker to his friend and personal assistant Andy. Andy has been Ian’s loyal employee, friend and like a son to him. He would do anything to help Ian. So when he is asked to be a mentor of sorts to Lucy of coarse he say‘s yes. Lucy had no idea how crazy her life will become. She now has a choice as to her destiny.
Faith is interwoven through this fantastic story. She can chose forgiveness, restoration of family, and love. She also has the chance to bless others or spend it on herself. I highly recommend this novel, it is well worth your time.
Wow another 5 star book by Anita Higman. A Question of Destiny is a fun and fast paced read. The author has done a great job of making this light read entertaining. It is well written with characters you are sure to fall in love with. I am hoping there is a sequel to follow.
I want to give a high-five to the author Anita Higman and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful the authors and publishers generosity.
What would you do if you received $10 million from someone you never knew beforehand? Would you question accepting it or question the motive? How would you "allow" it to change you, your values and your relationships? Who would it bring into your life and new “available” lifestyle? The good news is that in this book, unlike in real life, there are a couple of people who provide guidance and words of advice during this extreme learning curve.
I must admit to appreciating every character in this book and their respective roles played in the difficult and for the most part fatherless youth through the financially enriched life of Lucy, the benefactor of the money. Lucy's bodyguard of sorts, Andy, has his own story which rings a truth similar to the media exploits of today. His story touched my heart even more than Lucy's.
There is more than one story line in this book and each adds overall value. In fact, I am hoping for a follow-up on one of the characters in particular who on occasion shows more heart and tenderness within her earthly wealthy lifestyle and what appears to be a lost love and has/had volunteered in a worthy cause.
I am not generally a fan of romance novels but I do enjoy hers and make a point of reading them. No vulgar language or body stripping EVER. Yes, that's the way to my reading pleasure when it comes to any reading genre.
