"My Stubborn Heart," by Becky Wade

"My Stubborn Heart," by Becky Wade

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.

When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?

The last paragraph of the synopsis made me wonder what was going to happen in this book and it isn't until close to the end you discover   This book captured my attention from the get go, it was an easy book to get into and it kept my attention right to the very end.

The characters were perfect for one another and even the secondary characters, "the oldies," were fun, especially Beverly the Gran.  This is Becky's first novel and it is a good one and an author to watch for in the future.

Stars out of 5 : 5 a great read, that doesn't require a lot of time or a lot of deep thought.  A great book to read while on vacation or when you want a few hours for yourself with a good book.
