THE SOMEDAY LIST
The story's spiritual element is strong, showing how easily wayward emotions can guide us down the wrong path. But the characters lack enough depth and luster to carry the plot and make readers care about them.
Rachelle Covington appears to have everything: a successful husband, wonderful children and a sizable bank account. But she's bored with her life. When her husband goes on a missionary trip and her children are away visiting relatives, Rachelle travels home to Jubilant, Texas, to refocus and decide if staying in her marriage is the right thing to do. When she runs into her former love and their feelings for each other are rekindled, will Rachelle do the right thing? (REVELL, Jan., 256 pp., $12.99)
