Hi all! Happy Friday! And June has begun. The wedding month. Or it used to be. Summertime is fun time, right? And it’s the perfect month to talk about LOVE.
Part three of my Faith, Hope, and Love Series. If you need to know anything about me it’s that I love love. I’ve always been about reading romance novels. I know I did a post a few years ago about the books I read as a child, then a teenager. Pam and Penny, Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames. Those girls always had the cutest and best boyfriends. I guess it got me started on my romance journey.
Rich in Love was the first book of the Richness in Faith Series. The book not only deals with romance love, it also has a mother/daughter love as well. There are always many aspects of love to be explored. We focus here on the romance stories, which I love. (Yes, pun intended!)
I’ve been a hopeless romantic for a long time. I remember watching a popular soap opera when I was a teen and the gal told the the guy something along the lines of ‘we have love, we don’t need anything else.’ Then said guy tells her love doesn’t put a roof over your head and other sorts of logical nonsense. Ha! I was with her.
All my ideas of love changed though, when I realized 1 John 4:10 explained love in the truest sense. We can love well when we know we are loved well. And we were loved more than well when God called us. The love God has shown changes everything about how we view love.
When Ann Thomas is summoned to Florida for the reading of the will for the father she never knew, her life is forever changed. She learns she has a half-sister, she has the chance to inherit millions, and her name is really Angelina. Brett Hamilton, CPA, is assigned to help Ann spend a lot of money in a short period of time. As soon as his ‘assignment’ with her is over, he’s headed to Peru to be a missionary, something he’s felt called to do his whole life. Ann still lives with the pain of having a mother who chose world missions over her. Can Ann risk giving her love to someone who might give it back, or should she ignore her growing feelings towards Brett to keep her heart safe?
While this is the first book in the series, it’s the last post in this series. I’d love to hear what books caught your attention to make you fall in love with romance novels. Readers love a great book recommendation. And I’ll choose a commenter at random to receive an e copy of my book, Rich in Love.
(And, also, how many times can I use the word love in this post? Not too many, that’s for sure!)
