Book Review

by Sharlene MacLaren

Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance

RT Rating

While the sweet romance is a bit predictable, there is enough action in this first book of the River of Hope series to keep the reader engaged. MacLaren’s story, which includes family-friendly recipes and relevant Bible verses, reminds us that God can use any bad situation for good.

Livvie Beckman is a single mother and restaurant owner who hires Will Taylor to be her new cook. Will hopes to put his past incarceration behind him, yet when some unsavory characters turn up in town, it appears Will’s past may be back to haunt him. Their arrival may also place those Will cares about in danger.

Will has learned to draw closer to God in trying times, while Livvie continues to blame God for her husband’s death. As Livvie’s present collides with Will’s past, they learn to trust God in a whole new way. (WHITAKER HOUSE, Jun., 375 pp., $9.99)
