The book starts with an Introduction which sets the tone for Jen and explains how she would suspend disbelief and actually believe she received a text message from GOD when she was at her lowest point and desperately needed a job. What transpires from there is basically a comedy of errors, and eventually everything gets expl ...more
Totally loved this couple and their story!! Whitney Dineen and Melanie Summers have come up with a really winning twist on the complications of modern life and romance in the tech age.
All of our modern advances, including instant messaging and conversations by text, should make our lives easier. Right? Well, not in this story where Jen, a lovely, positive, trusting but financially insecure artist striving to keep her head above wa ...more
Taking comfort in the communication, she continues to send messages to "GOD". Little d ...more

The cast of characters in this book was brilliant and most of them were really nice people. Jen was a genuinely sweet person who cared about others and when at her wits end looked for a sign. That sign came with a text message from GOD. What's a girl to do when God messages her and he helps her out? It was great to be able to get to know Jen's character through the texts and also a little bit about Byrne. A change of priorities eventually lead to happiness. I loved Mary and Joseph. They were so ...more
I was at first really excited about this book based on the fact it involved sort of the texting trope, which is not something so usual in romance books but that I usually adore. In this case, I can safely say that I overall had a good time reading it, but didn't love it.
I loved Jen's personality, so big and full, her optimism and generosity most of all is what sold me. Gabe was also an interesting character to follow, and his family made me smile if not laugh at times.
Mostly, my problem i ...more
God is actually Gabe Oliver Daly/Byrne and he’s a lawyer who is having a bit of a crisis of conscience with something his law firm is doing that he’s not on board with.
Due to a mix up their paths cross and the story plays a bit like a Sunday evening Hallmark made for TV show. Both characters are ...more

The main character, dark haired artist Jen Flanders was a reluctant believer in humanity although her outlook on life bordered on blond roots. She was pass naive, but I was okay with it. Gabriel Oliver Daly also known as Byrnes/ God (I kid you not) was a really nice love interest despite growing up in “d ...more
More cutesy and cheesy than some others, but I’m ok with that. It was a good feel good rom-com.

She’s open, trusting, and needs to believe that God might help her - in any way, so she texts GOD back.
