Full Steam Ahead Series / Novella

You might remember that I posted the review for the first book in this series a few months past as a new release (Full Steam Ahead). Well, this book, Love on the Mend is the second book/novella in the series. Seeing I've already reviewed the first book I'm going to just skip to the second. If you didn't get the chance to read my review just click on the link below:


Next week I'm going to post another author interview. Exciting, isn't it?! Can you guess who? Yep, that's right, Karen Witemeyer! She is definitely on my list of top five favorite authors. (Because I have so many favorite authors I decided to narrow down my very, very favorites to five. Here they are: Jody Hedlund, Karen Witemeyer, Margaret Brownley, Jen Turano, and Melanie Dickerson. For any authors not on that list, you still have my loyalty and love; just not to the same extent. :)

Enjoy another beautiful week in May and be sure to be on the lookout for next week's interview with Karen Witemeyer!
 

Book Title: Love on the Mend
Series: Full Steam Ahead (Novella)
Author: Karen Witemeyer

Description:
After serving as a doctor during the War Between the States, Jacob Sadler wants nothing more than to establish a quiet country practice in rural Texas. But he knows he'll never find peace until he buries the pain of his past. To that end, he accepts a job in Cold Spring, Texas--the town he's avoided for seventeen years--and discovers his past is definitely still alive and kicking.

When a new doctor arrives in town and saves her brother's leg, Mollie Tate quickly puts him on a hero's pedestal. But then the new doc insults her "Uncle" Curtis. Years ago, Curtis Sadler rescued Mollie when no one else cared. How could he possibly be the villain the new doctor believes him to be?
           
Jacob doesn't know what to make of the young woman who assists him like a seasoned nurse one minute only to take a strip out of his hide the next. Yet the sparks that fly between them make him feel more alive than he has in a long time. As respect for his young nurse turns into something deeper, can he set aside the pain from his past to embrace this new love, or are some sins too big to be forgiven?


My Review:
Love on the Mend has all that right components for making a great novella. There was romance, humor, an exciting plot, and a bit of action.

Both the main characters, Jacob and Mollie, were fun to read about. Their pasts were both well thought out and written.

I really liked the Christian message that was written into this book. It seems like most Christian novels are about forgiveness but I never tire of reading about it; it is one of the biggest things we struggle with after all. Whether it is accepting God's forgiveness, forgiving others who have wronged us, or forgiving ourselves for our own short comings, forgiveness is a subject you can never read too much of. :)

Looking forward to another book by Karen Witemeyer!

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm planning on posting a Time in the Limelight for both Jacob and Mollie. It probably won't be next week but it will be soon. :)
