Hometown Romance - Pies, Books & Jesus
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Artist Sessa Chambers may never recover from losing her prodigal son. Even as she grieves the tragic decisions that led to his death, and left her with a toddler to raise, she’s asked to work on her dream project—restoring carousel horses for the Smithsonian. But she can’t do it on her own…
Dr. Trey Brown can't pick up a scalpel again. Yes, he acted in self-defense, but the events of that awful night haunt him. He was trained to save lives, not take them. When he goes to the young man's widowed mother to apologize, she’s not at all what he expected. For one thing, she’s not as alone as he thought--not with the fearsome ladies of the Pies, Books, and Jesus Book Club in her corner. For another, she’s beautiful, and being in her presence is more jolting than any eight-second bronco ride from his former rodeo days. Before he knows it, she’s captured his heart as easily as they capture the fireflies gracing Sessa’s Texas ranch.
How can they overcome their past to embrace a future together?
This book is an intriguing, uplifting page turner!!!
This is the first book in the Pies, Books and Jesus series. Kathleen Y'Barbo does a great job of grabbing your attention from the get go and holding it all the way through. Her characters are very real and face some extremely difficult situations. Both Sessa and Trey have to deal with forgiveness, grief and trusting God.
I love Sessa's small town, if you have never lived in one you may find it hard to believe that this is exactly what small town life is like. Tessa has a very loving mom and town. She is a loving, caring person just trying to get by. She is not expecting to possibly find love along the way.
I fell in love with Trey along the way too. He has much to overcome and things he needs to work through. Will he find the peace he seeks and maybe someone special?
I was given a copy of this novella from the publishers for my honest opinion.
Even though it was very slow at the beginning, and the preaching was over done, I loved the plot and how it developed. The ending wasn't as good as I hoped, it needed an epilogue.
