I loved the side characters too, especially Josh's mom, Janine. She is a great listener but she also tells it like it is, there's no messing with her.
As I was reading, I could hear the Australian and American accents and loved all the subtle Aussie touches the author sprinkled throughout the pages.
There were so many laugh out loud moments, my sides ached. I won't give spoilers but there is a point in the book where you will need tissues. I clutched my Kindle to my chest, sobbing.
Oh my, the romance, there is a part near the end that will simply melt your heart. I've not seen a better scene in any movie, ever!
There are lessons here too, not making assumptions about people, letting go of baggage, and forgiveness. All so expertly woven into the story. I just love this book. If you like romantic comedy, you will like this book. If you like drama and romance, you will like this book. I would give it more than 5 Stars if I could.
Now I understand why Paige and Josh were one of people’s favourite characters from last year. This book is all kind of adorbs.
Paige, feisty, loyal, lovable, cute Paige. She’s waking up. Or better yet, finally opening herself up. Daring to live out of a sheltered life. She’s off on an adventure to the other side of the world. But once she discovered her cousin’s idea of a perfect job is actually Paige’s worst nightmare, she might question her sanity here and there. Especially when she keeps making a fool of herself in front of one Josh Taylor.
Josh Taylor. Worship leader, overprotective, caring, and, usually, a gentleman.
He has a life he loves, which includes traveling the world and leading people in praises to God. There’s a lot of pressure, expectations, challenges that come with the field, but his family has learned to be stronger despite the trials. Doesn’t mean Josh likes it when a rumour starts, gossips are spread, people show up only trying to gain something from them, with no real interest in them. And he’s sure the blonde American is just one more person who’ll end up disappointing them.
Once these two have to spend time together without killing each other, both will have their preconceptions confronted by reality. And they’ll that to be given grace amongst trials is truly a balm to the spirit, a shake to unworthy foundations, and healing from the deepest regrets.
Here's one more reason to pick up this book: it's set in AUSTRALIA *---*
The story was so well written that the reader can really empathize with the characters as they try to move on with their lives with things in the past still haunting them. It's easy to relate because life isn't a bed of roses. This story has the struggles, pain, and turmoil that take place in our lives, and how a God can use those to mold us into the person he wants us to be--if we will let Him.
I really liked the plot of the story, enjoyed the characters, and followed the roller coaster of emotions of the characters as they journeyed through different stages. Life can be difficult, but he always gives us wonderful people to help us and lighter funnier times to make it fun, enjoyable, and sweet!
I did want to mention that this is an adult story...totally clean..but some subject matter that is for adults. I'm adding this because I have people ask so I'm going to try to remember to add this to my reviews.
"Um, because, as her daddy use to say, going to church made you a Christian about as much as going to McDonalds made you a hamburger."
"At its core, the gospel is offensive. We are all sinners. We all fall short of God. No matter how good a person we are, how nice a life we lead, we all need Jesus to bridge the gap for us."
If you enjoy contemporary stories with real life situations...read Kara Isaac's books. They are funny, witty, enjoyable and yet real! So just go buy it and support the author!!
