Lowcountry Romance / Book 2

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday; or Resurrection Sunday as my family calls it. Christmas is probably one of the biggest holidays of the year but in my opinion Easter should be more significant. Christ being born a human is an amazing thing but the Lord's act of love on Easter is what saves us and makes us part of God's family. This song, Glorious Day by Casting Crowns, is one of my favorites about the Lord's crucifixion and resurrection.


Today I'm reviewing the second book in the Lowcountry Romance series, Love Starts with Elle. (I really like that play on words) If you've read the first book in this series you are already slightly familiar with the character Elle. She was one of Caroline's best friends in Sweet Caroline.

Enjoy the new week,


Book Title:  Love Starts With Elle
Series: Lowcountry Romance (Book #2)
Author: Rachel Hauck

Description: Elle's living the dream—but is it her dream or his?

Elle loves life in Beaufort, South Carolina—lazy summer days on the sand bar, coastal bonfires, and dinners with friends sharing a lifetime of memories. And she's found her niche as the owner of a successful art gallery too. Life is good.

Then the dynamic pastor of her small town church sweeps her off her feet. She's never known a man like Jeremiah—one who breathes in confidence and exhales all doubt. When he proposes in the setting sunlight, Elle hands him her heart on a silver platter.

But Jeremiah's just accepted a large pastorate in a different state. If she's serious about their relationship, Elle will take "the call," too, leaving behind the people and place she loves so dearly. Elle's friendship with her new tenant, widower Heath McCord, and his young daughter make things even more complicated.

Is love transferrable across the miles? And can you take it with you when you go?
 

My Review: One of the things I really liked about this book was how Rachel Hauck brought more Christianity into this story than some of her others. Elle is really struggling with making decisions for her future and through the influence of a Christian lady begins to willingly let God have control of her life. And like the Bible verse, Romans 8:28*, Elle realizes how God really does work all things out for good.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would. Although mostly for older teens and ages above.

*Romans 8:28 KJV "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose."
