A Random Act of Kindness

Businessman Nick Thornton couldn't help being impulsive. But he had no misgivings about hiring away the feisty new waitress at his favorite diner. After all, he could spot a person in need, and Rona Meyers needed a protector. Yet, as he got to know her, he was humbled by her caring and no-nonsense attitude. Maybe "he" was the one in need--after all

didn't realize til now that it was part of a series, and NOT the 1st book. can't imagine what characters that were in it would have come from previous books, either! anyway ...

i found this one a little too unbelievable in how most of it went down, and so quickly. if that sort of thing doesn't bother you, tho, should make a VERY quick, easy, lite summer read
This review on goodreads is not what this book is about. It appears as though it is the right cover wrong description.

This was a cute story. Kind of slow, but I still enjoyed getting to know the characters. It was definitly a written as a Christian novel. Glad I read it but probably won't read again.
I wanted to like this book. I did but I couldn't. I enjoyed the characters and the basis of the story but it just didn't mesh with me. This book was ridiculously slow moving and some of the super conservative Christian values (like no smoking, drinking, or gambling) were kind of shoved down your throat.

Good and easy read. Very quick. I enjoyed this one, though not as much as the author's "Loving" series.

Christian Fiction
Loved this book, though the description on Goodreads does not match this book... :)
