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 Review :
I enjoyed this book.  The characters drew me in right from the start.  Closer to the end I was unsure how the romance between Matt and Kate would survive all the obsticles in their way - but what happened was intriguing.  Matt's struggle with his christian faith throughout the story was heartwarming and heart-wrenching all at the same time.   Great romance, realistic emotions and the characters are likeable and down to earth.  A great story that shows sometimes doing the right thing, making the right choices and following God's lead is not the Easy thing, but is worth it in the end!
