For a free book, it's a very good romance but if I paid the 7 bucks the paperback costs I would be pissed.
Now I've read my share of Christian fiction and romances and while the story and characters weren’t bad in this book, they weren’t great either. I had a problem when about halfway through the book I realized that 6 months time in the book had passed and I didn’t even realize it.
I also really didn’t see the spark between Jennie and Matthew. They hung out together for 2 summers when they where teens, and then she didn’t see him for over 10 years. Sure why not completely change your lifestyle and marry a dude you’ve known for a little over a year total…that makes complete sense!
I was really interested in the story at first, and by the end of it I really did like Jennie as a character, even if I didn’t know half of what was going on. When I got to the proposal I was just ready to be done with the thing. The story seemed like it ended very abruptly, but I guess if this is just the first book in a series we’re supposed to read the sequels to find out the rest of their story. (less)
