ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I love Jesus, my family, and just about anything sweet.
I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose three days later, and will one day return. He has carried me through some of my darkest hours. Without faith in Him, I would be nowhere.
I have a penchant for chocolate, clothes, and shoes. When I’m not penning romance novels, I enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping.
ABOUT THE BOOK
“However, sometimes fear holds us back from going after what is right.” (p. 172)
That statement states a truth that is etched out in the characters’ lives in Mindy Obenhous’, A Father’s Second Chance. Abandonment, loneliness, fear of failure, Celeste Thompson and Gage Purcell begin their friendship at arms’ length – convinced that their only interaction will be the business transaction of refurbishing Celeste’s family homeplace. The family dynamics that are in play in both their lives pose mountainous obstacles to any attraction that might be forming between them.
I’m not so sure that this Love Inspired novel isn’t more about overcoming the generational shortcomings of our lives than about the budding romance between Celeste and Gage. The author has developed her characters well in a brief amount of time, and she even inserts an element of danger and uncertainty that make the resolution both realistic and honest.
This is a book that is meant to entertain and satisfy your heartfelt desire to sigh with satisfaction when love wins. But the characters in the story take all of that to a much more satisfying place of deep faith and trust in God. I really enjoyed this story, and I am happy to recommend it to others!
