ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

ABOUT THE BOOK:
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.
I haven't quite finished this book, but I am really enjoying it. There are a lot of really engaging characters in the story, and I have to say that I'm enjoying Morty and Velma's storyline as much as I am Matt and Kate's.
There have been plenty of places to laugh as I've turned the pages...and I so love a book with humor. My only negative is the use of a few words that my mama would have washed my mouth out with soap for back in the day...cr@p, PO'd, etc. But even with that, I would still recommend this book to those who love romance, humor, and a story that will both entertain you as well as speak to your heart.
My thanks to CFBA and Bethany House Publishers for providing a copy for my review.
