Christian romance. Read the first in the series two years ago. Hope to find more in the future.

This book was interesting. I liked both Claire and Brendan, although they were very cliche characters. Claire was a very successful businesswoman with a troubled past. Brendan was a pastor was a difficult past as well. They undertook Nolie and Gabe's wedding as a project. Of course, they ending up falling in love. It was an okay story. The romance was very cheesy in some parts, but a lot of it was also pretty decent.

My complete thoughts on these romance novels are explained in my review for "He
“Unlikely Hero” is the story of the lone Flanagan man who isn’t a firefighter: chaplain Brendan Flanagan, cousin to Gabe and Ryan. He’s performing the wedding of Gabe and Nolie (whose story is found in “Hero in Her Heart”) but Nolie’s BFF Claire demands to be allowed to handle all the arrangements. It’s in her nature: she is an astute, intelligent, ladder-climbing corporate woman who works for Harvey Gray, an esteemed patron of the local church. Harvey isn’t thrilled that Brendan is working with ...more

I have ALWAYS LOVED Marta Perry's Flannagan family....I can't remember which of the Firefighting Flanagan family memebers stories I have already read.....But pastor and firefighter chaplin Brendan Flannaagan's story wasn't familiar when I raed it! Obviously Brendan and his other family members were from the other books in The Flannagan series....LOVED pastor Brendan. Claire Delany wasn't my FAVORITE heroine , 'AT FIRST.' She came of cold at first. Which, those kinds of heroine's and women in rea ...more

I almost didn't read this book because of the poor cover design, but my kids were sick and I couldn't get to the library. I had bought this at a secondhand store for a quarter so I figured, why not - and I'm really glad I did. This was a great story! Martha Perry is an excellent author and I always enjoy her books.
I would not say this book was bad, but I did not love it either. This is just not the type of book I read, so I couldn't not get into it. I assume this is how normal people feel when they read a book they like. The book had a nice and cute story, but there was no connection for me to the story.
