New Releases: Love in the Details

Did you know that Thanksgiving is ranked as the third most celebrated holiday in America? (Christmas and Halloween being first and second) Most people just think of the food but the word thanksgiving actually means: a day set apart for giving thanks to God. This is what the day was originally created for in 1621 and how we should still celebrate it today. After all, when you've been blessed with so much (salvation, eternal life, family, friends...) isn't it only right to thank the one responsible?

Today, I am especially thankful for gift of speech. It may seem a weird thing to be thankful for but I recently came down with laryngitis and not being able to talk is AWFUL! I never realized what a blessing it is to have a voice until I lost it. It always works that way, doesn't it?

What is one thing that you are thankful for today?

Book Title: Love in the Details
Author: Becky Wade
Publication Date: October 27, 2015
Publisher: Zondervan

Description:
Holly ended things to give him a better life, but she was the future he’d always dreamed of.

Eight years have passed since Holly last saw her high school sweetheart, Josh. Now the wedding of Josh’s best friend has brought him back to Martinsburg, Texas.  His duties as best man and Holly's as the church's volunteer wedding coordinator link them together.  As they work behind the scenes to plan a beautiful November wedding for their friends, they're forced to confront painful reminders of what might have been.

Holly broke up with Josh all those years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. However, she never told him the true reason behind her actions and now must decide whether to keep her secret hidden.  She's terrified of letting herself fall for him because she barely managed to piece her life back together after losing him the last time.

Not a day's gone by since Josh parted from Holly that he hasn't thought about her.  The pain of the past eight years has been too much to bear and he doesn't want to make himself vulnerable to her again. But the more time he spends with her, the harder it is to deny the love he still has for her.

Will Josh and Holly risk their hearts on the hope that God's timing really can be best?

My Review:
For being a novella this book was very well-written. It takes a talented author to be able to write all the necessary details and characters' backgrounds in so few pages. Many novellas I find don't have the depth a full length novel has but Love in the Details was just as entertaining of a read.

I liked how the story portrayed Holly and Josh as already having a romance in the past. The previous love helped move the story along without it feeling rushed. Holly, was an engaging character and I liked her from the beginning. Josh wasn't my favorite guy but he was still likable. That was probably the only thing I didn't care for in the book and it wasn't that big of a deal for me.

"If you're looking for a short romantic read this is the novella for you"

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
