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.

A simple, sweet story of redemption, forgiveness, and finding love. Many people would say that meeting and falling in love so quickly is ridiculous; that love doesn't happen that way; that soul mates don't exist. But as one who recognized my own love and future the first day we met, I can say that Nick and Rona's connection and growth is possible. Just as Nick and Gary's finding of each other after they were so very lost. This is not a complicated or exciting story, but it is a story of how God ...more

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.

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
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.

Though I originally love romance-suspense books,
this, by the way, is so good.
I really love to read those portions {not just the declarations of love by both parties} the characters love for one another is being founded in God's love.

God bless.

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