Book Review: The Naive Wife: Rachel’s Choice (Book #1)

ABOUT THE BOOK

On the day of her sister’s marriage introduction, radio show host, Rachel Eden, meets Ejike and Doug; two friends that could not be more different. She finds herself instantly attracted to Ejike, but there’s something about Doug and the way he’s determined to win her heart. Neither men are who they appear to be, however, making Rachel’s choice harder. Her producer and friend, Dongjap, also makes his intentions known, but could he be a little too late?

Rachel’s Choice is a story of many singles, seeking to know the will of God for their relationships and who need, beyond wisdom, grace to make the right choice for their lives. It is the first volume of a three-book fictional series about love and marriage – The Naive Wife.

MY THOUGHTS

The 1st book in The Naive Wife by Ufuomaee was a good introduction to the rest of the story. We got introduced to Doug, Ejike and Rachel, the major characters. It was kind of a love triangle story. Rachel was very relatable character.
I liked the pace of the story and the plot. It ended in such a way that made me want to pick up book 2 and read immediately which I did.

The book is filled with lessons of faith, love and sexual purity for singles before marriage.

Overall lovely book.

Book Review: Love Me Again.

Hello reader friends! Today’s book review is Love Me Again (First Love Series #3) by Tope Omotosho. Have you read her books? If not, check out this series.

ABOUT THIS BOOK.

After a close brush with death, she wakes up. The life she once knew is over.

Growing up, it was ingrained in Tahira’s mind to don the hat of wife and mother to perfection by fulfilling three roles: care for her family, be submissive to her husband, and remain devout to God. Yet, Tahira is devastated at her failure to fulfil one of such life’s callings.

Especially after a near-death experience causes her to forget the last eight years of her life and thus, makes the simple things complicated. She awakens to a life that leaves her confused and opens her to change her valued perspective in life.

Idris has always loved a challenge. To him, there’s no obstacle he can’t barrel through – even when one of his past challenges involved winning the heart of his rigid college sweetheart, Tahira. In the course of the many twists and turns life tosses his way, he doesn’t anticipate the hurts and frustrations that accompany his marriage. And now, with Tahira’s memory loss and more – Idris is left with choices that would either set him free from his vows to Tahira or open his heart to someone new.

Is there hope of them loving each other again?

Are you Doctor Geoffrey Whelan?”

ABOUT THE BOOK

Doctor Geoffrey Whelan was in Japan when the tsunami hit, killing his cousin and grandmother. He has worked in medical missions for years to assuage his survivor’s guilt, and now that he’s back in Sonoma to help his family, he can’t figure out why he still feels so wounded and God feels so far away.

Then a mysterious young woman warns him that he and nurse Maylin Kinley are in mortal danger.

Maylin notices that Geoffrey is not the same arrogant doctor she met years ago in Los Angeles. Now that they are working together again in a clinic in Sonoma, she fights her attraction towards him because his confident, forceful personality reminds her too much of her abusive ex-boyfriend, who called himself a Christian.

She has been steering clear of her handsome coworker—until Asian hitmen attack the clinic and they are forced to run for their lives. Now they must race to figure out how the threat is connected to a young teenager whose life they saved—before everyone they love is caught in the crossfire.

MY THOUGHTS

After reading Found, I found myself asking “how does she do it?” 

The characters were so real, in an instant they drew me into the story. I wanted to know what they did, how they did it…

The story line is one you don’t read about everyday but one which is real and affecting lives. And the finesse with which the author handled it is unrivalled.

First Line Friday: ‘Til I Want No More

Today for First Line Friday, we’re looking at Til I Want No More by Robin W. Pearson. First Line Friday is hosted by Hoarding Books.

“You know trouble ain’t catchin’.”

About the Book

When the man she loved years ago returns to town, one young woman’s complicated past rises again, threatening to expose her well-kept secrets.

If Maxine could put her finger on the moment when her life went into a tailspin, she would point back twenty years to the day her daddy died. She tells herself he’s the only person who ever really knew and loved her, and if he hadn’t left her behind, her future would’ve taken a different path. No absentee mother, no stepfather, no rebellious ripping and running during her teenage years. And no JD, who gave her wandering young heart a home, at least for a time.

But that’s over and done with. All grown-up now, Maxine has pledged her heart and ring finger to Theodore Charles, the man she’ll promise to love, honor, and obey in front of God and everybody. At least that’s what she’s telling anybody who will listen. The only folks buying it are the dog and the readers of her column, however. Her best friend and family aren’t having it–not even Celeste, the double bass-playing thirteen-year-old the community of Mount Laurel, North Carolina, believes is Maxine’s adopted sister. And apparently, neither is the newly returned JD, who seems intent on toppling Maxine’s reconstructed life. As her wedding day marches ever closer, Maxine confronts what it means to be really known and loved by examining what’s buried in her own heart and exposing truth that has never seen the light of day.

A Christian fiction novel with a poignant story of romance, a search for truth, and a journey to redemption. For fans of Chris Fabry, Lauren Denton, and Charles Martin. (Source: Goodreads)

Book Review: Fate.

Hello Friends.

Lovely Wednesday! Today I will be sharing my thoughts with you about a book I recently read and loved.

Fate (The Perfect Time For Love) by Natasha Frazier.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Melanie Bennett and Detective Brian Morris met over a year ago when he solved her best friend’s murder case, and now Nashville’s annual Christmas festivities have them crossing paths again, could it be fate?

Melanie Bennett has spent the last six months in therapy to erase the self-assigned blame and eradicate the night terrors that plagued her at every attempt to close her eyes after witnessing her best friend’s murder. The Christmas season always had a way of lifting her spirits, and this year is no different. The spark within her to live again couldn’t have come at a better time when she and Detective Brian Morris are reacquainted, but first, she must believe that she deserves happiness.

Will the circumstances of how they met prevent Melanie from taking a chance on love?

Brian was drawn to Melanie when he first laid eyes on her over a year ago; he wanted to ask her out, but the timing was all wrong. Expressing interest in her when she’d just lost her best friend was tacky, but fate dealt him another opportunity when he walked into her hair salon delivering flyers for the annual stuff the cruiser toy drive a year later. Though Brian desires love, will his unresolved issues with his mother get in the way?

Every moment spent with one another can only be described as fate – a power beyond human control. Will this Christmas season bring about the healing and love both Melanie and Brian crave?

Fate is book 2 in the Perfect Time for Love Series (Sweet Christian Romance).

MY THOUGHTS
