My Thoughts

This was a very enjoyable story. I this stories that involve children are some o the sweetest especially when they try to be little matchmakers like this one! This one was even more intriguing as it involved their teacher and their dad who was her high school sweetheart. Both Nick and Joy's romance is sweet. They have both made mistakes and endured heartaches which makes it for a great story of forgiveness and love. If you enjoy contemporary romances and the second chance at love trope this is the book for you. 

This was my first book by this author and I thought it was a good one. She weaves the element of faith throughout the story and writes it beautifully. If you need a short read to get you through the day I definitely recommend this one!

My Rating: 3.5 Stars/I liked it!

Reviewer's Note: This book has a reference to a sexual assault but nothing is graphic. I just want you to be aware in case this is a trigger for you.

I received this book through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

More from Jill

Back in 2019, when my editor sent me a cover mock-up for my third Love Inspired book A Mother for His Twins, I was thrilled to see the art department had used a picture of my hero’s twin boys, Jordan and Tyler Capello.

I had so much fun developing the characters of these two little rascals. Although they were twins, I wanted to make sure they each had their own unique personality.

Once I had Tyler’s character sketch completed, I went to work developing Jordan. Unlike his brother who is the outgoing one of the two, I wanted Jordan to be more quiet and shy than his twin. That’s when I decided to draw on my own experience as a child.

Like Jordan, I had a speech impediment when I was a child. I was unable to pronounce the letter R. Because of this, I was teased by my classmates. To make matters worse, once a week, my speech teacher would come and pull me from my classroom for my private session. I can still hear the giggles and murmuring that filled the room. Thankfully, with a lot of instruction and practice, I was able to overcome the impediment.

Life is full of obstacles. Looking back at what we’ve overcome gives us the confidence to keep pressing forward when we know God will never leave us.
