Molly is a sad person who loves children but thinks she is a danger to them because of an incident when her nephew died in her care.
Ethan is a delivery man and needs to leave his baby at Molly’s house while goes and makes a delivery during a snowstorm. Once he returns, it is too perilous to try to drive home, so he stays at Molly’s house.
This begins their romance and Molly’s return to finding her faith in God.
While I am very religious person, I do not usually read Christian romances because they can be mediocre. Like many in this sub-genre, the author depicts Molly as a lost, bitter, sad person. Then she re-discovers religion, causing her to be a better person. Happier and content. Only then is she worthy of being loved. Meh
Molly’s conflict with her estranged sister was over the top to me. If this is supposed to be a town full of a lot of “good Christian people”, why didn’t any of them help Molly deal with her grief at the time her nephew died? It was as if everyone saw the car accident, but decided to wait for the paramedics to get there instead of trying to help.
Plus, I do not think I really got over the fact that Ethan left his baby with a complete stranger. I do not care about the fact that it was in the middle of a snowstorm. Didn’t he have any friends?
It was so cheesy. I skipped over pages just to get to the end. Some parts were about as interesting as watch paint dry.
You may not agree, but that is my opinion.
Should you buy? If you want a super, scrubbed clean romance with no hint of anything to offend the sensibilities, then this book is for you. You might want to check out other Love Inspired books too. For me, I now know the code words “Love Inspired” mean that I will pass on reading that.
