BOOK REVIEW: Marry Me (Covington Falls Chronicles Book 1) by Kristin Wallace / Astraea Press

Marry Me (Covington Falls Chronicles Book 1)
by Kristin Wallace (Goodreads Author)
ebook, 357 pages
Published October 24th 2013 by Astraea Press (first published October 23rd 2013)

Goodreads synopsis: Julia Richardson is no fan of weddings. A lifetime of watching her parents treat relationships like the flavor of the month has taught her that love is for fools and faith is for na├»ve. She’s always put her faith in her career. Then her life is thrown into a tailspin. First, she loses her job. Then she gets a panicked call and learns her former stepsister is having a crisis with her pregnancy. The crisis has Julia returning to the small Southern town – and the family – she’s been avoiding for years. Before she knows it, Julia’s been pressed into service running her stepsister’s wedding planning business.

I had started reading this book first and then when I was at work was reading the ARC pdf I had of book 2 in this series. I so enjoyed book 2 that I finished that one first. I don't seem to be able to read books in series order for some reason. But this book was equally as good as book 1. I resonated more with book two because I did drama in high school and the musical aspect just pulled me in. But I also loved how a non-believer, so to speak, found not only faith, but her family and love at the same time.

I laughed and cried while reading this book. And that is saying something because most books don't pull any emotions from me. I felt for Seth as he tried to stand up to the church board to keep his music minister. My heart clinched for Julia as she was betrayed by someone she didn't even like in the beginning but grew to like.

It was just all good. I know some people don't like to delve into Christian fiction but I say, delve away! This one is worth the read!

5 Stars

I bought this book on my Kindle and I think it was around $2.99-ish.
