A Sensational CBA Debut in Contemporary Romance!

This summer author Becky Wade makes her CBA debut with a fun -- and funny -- contemporary romance. Amidst the light-hearted banter and laugh-out-loud moments is a compelling spiritual journey of one woman's choice to listen to God and wait on him. Filled with humor and authentic romance, My Stubborn Heart is shaping up to be the hit of the summer.

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When Kate's grandmother asks Kate to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Yet, she discovers a different kind of project upon meeting the man hired to renovate the house. ;Matt Jarreau is attractive and clearly wounded -- hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Kate can't help but set her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.

My Thoughts:

Sometimes, a book doesn't quite live up to the hype...but this one EXCEEDS it!  One of the most stunning fiction debuts of 2012!  "My Stubborn Heart" was a gorgeous love story built around God's passion for us and our obedience to Him.

Fell in love with Kate, and totally got where she was coming from.  In today's society, more and more Christian young women are just waiting for God to move that special young man across their path, and wondering if it will ever happen.  You will identify with Kate and find her absolutely adorable.  Only wish I was as in tune with God's Spirit as she was!

Matt is more than just a tragic male figure in fiction.  He is many men today, dealing with wounds and pain silently and in solitude.  The world tends to chew men up and spit them out, and life often brings its own body blows.  Kate's tender mercies of friendly overtures are just exactly what the Great Physician ordered!

Love, love LOVE how the final chapters play out...do NOT skip ahead!  It will ruin the story!  Can't recommend this novel highly enough...first time in a long time that I finished the book and immediately started reading it AGAIN!  Yup, it was that good!

Don't misunderstand me.  This was not a quick read.  The pace of the story is leisurely and the plot develops at a steady, even pace.  This a story of everyday people finding love in God's timing...even if the love is just with Him.

I received my copy from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.   Seriously, people, don't miss this incredible novel by Becky Wade...you'll regret it.  You really will.  Can't wait to see what she comes up with next:-)

Happy Reading!
