A REVIEW BY IOLA
Miss Felicia Murdock is distinctly put out with God, because it seems they’ve had a slight misunderstanding. She was of the impression that she could best live out her Christian faith as the wife of Reverend Fraser—who is about to marry someone else. Despite her expectations, God doesn’t stop the wedding with a bolt of lightning, forcing Felicia to reconsider God’s plan for her life. As she is now twenty-four, that future obviously doesn’t include a husband.

WHAT SOME OF MY FRIENDS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK
This novel is a page turner, that’s for sure and for certain! … Also, the characters were hilarious! I often found myself giggling while reading this novel (much to the amusement of my family).
Jen Turano’s writing style flows prettily without being flowery, and, as I mentioned, it’s really funny. But what I liked best about this book was that it wasn’t just funny. It spoke to depth, too.
A very satisfying ending! Loved revisiting all the old familiar characters and once again witnessing the joined forces of the three mothers ~ I find it funny that they come across as hilarious and a bit pushy, and are clearly seen as “comedic extras”, but when you think about it, the plot always comes out how they were hoping in the end and it makes you stop and wonder who the real heroine(s) actually are. 😉
Laugh out loud comedy, sweet romance, mysterious back story, and Godly values. It gets harder and harder to wait for Jen Turano’s next book each time I read one!
