Title: When Love Arrives
Author: Jonnie Alexander
“An Unlikely Couple Struggles to Reconcile the Burdens of Their Past
Dani Prescott came to the children’s hospital to spy on Brett Somers–so how did she end up on a date with him? Weeks earlier she’d seen an interview in which he blamed her mother for the plane crash that had killed his parents. But the crash had killed her mother as well, so Dani can’t believe the story Brett’s trying to sell to the media.
Vowing to find a way to discredit the privileged–and maddeningly handsome–Brett, Dani has been following him and taking photos, hoping to find something she can use against him. But when she catches his eye instead, she quickly finds herself offering up a fake name and agreeing to a date. Brett knows this mystery girl is hiding something–but he’s got his own secrets to keep. What will happen when he discovers who she really is? Will Dani and Brett look beyond their own heartaches to discover a love that could heal their deepest pain?
Fresh, flirty, and fast-paced, “When Love Arrives” is an engaging story that will have readers falling in love with the characters as they navigate the tricky waters between romance and revenge.“
The Good: Even though this is technically the second book in the “Misty Willows” series I was not lost reading this as a stand alone book. This book drew me in from page one. I was captivated and could not put it down. There were times, however, that I actually did have to put it down but it was to cringe or cheer. I loved how the perspective of the story changed from Brett to Dani and even to Meghan at times. It was organized so well that you never got confused or lost as to who you were reading through. I loved seeing how they all felt at certain major events.
These characters were so well developed and complex and I enjoyed how they changed and matured over the course of the book. This book also served as a nice reminder of how God works in our lives to change us. When our lives feel out of control and u[side down, sometimes that is God bringing about the necessary change in our lives. Their lives were relatable and intriguing.
The Bad: It ended, and way too soon. I don’t have anything else bad to say about this book.
Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone who loves romances or a happy story. This was a book I could get lost in and forget my troubles. If you are looking for that type of book, look no further.
