A Light in the Window by Julie Lessman - REVIEWED

About the Book: 
One Woman. Two Men.  One stirs her pulse and the other her faith.  But who will win her heart?

Marceline Murphy is a gentle beauty with a well-founded aversion to rogues.  But when two of Boston's most notorious pursue her,attraction, dreams and faith only muddle her mind.  Can the light in the window illuminate the path of true love?

My Thoughts:

Marcy fought the inclination to roll her [eyes] and gave him a patient smile.  “I’m not sure ‘angels’ are prone to extend mercy to one with a bit of the devil, Mr. O’Conner, but you’re in luck…the Lord requires it of human beings.”   (Marcy speaking to Patrick)

If you are familiar with any of Julie Lessman’s books, you KNOW the O’Conner clan intimately!  And once you’ve read her e-book, A Light in the Window, you will have NO DOUBT where the clan get their spunk – their passion – their charm – their wit – their stubbornness -  you witness it ALL from the very beginning!!  Now I need to go back to the very beginning and start reading again while I await Julie’s new series!! Sigh.  Romance, Julie’s got your number!!
