Another lucky library find. I am really starting to enjoy these Love Inspired Romances. They are a light and happy weekend read with a nice romance and a Christian theme. Home Sweet Home by Kim Watters is another in a wonderful series of contemporary Christian romances. Orphaned Abby Bancroft has inherited what she hopes will become her forever home Bed and Breakfast in Dynamite Creek, Arizona. Her dreams of supporting herself in a grand Victorian home are dashed when she arrives only to find out that the house is in horrible need of TLC.
What is interesting about this story is that there are multiple issues to iron out. Not only does the house need help, but the man to do so – Cole – is tied closely, not only to fixing it but to the reason behind the neglect. Abby is also dealing with the death of her mother, lack of a father and the fact that until this inheritance she was not even aware of the existence of her now deceased grandparents.
Faith, love and forgiveness are all common themes for Abby and Cole as they attempt to find their place in a small town that may be less than receptive and the heart of another still hurting from their past. Abby and Cole’s pasts are examined as are those of Abby’s family. I love that this all takes time, and work. Kim Watters does an amazing job of creating characters you can’t hope but with the best for while sharing some wonderful and important Christian values.
