Susan Karsten here, with Lucy in Love! A special review for a special novella.
It’s part of a series of 8 novellas (short novels) connected by a theme. The theme is from the famous bible passage Phillipians 4:8 that begins, Whatever is pure…, and ends, …think on these things. Thus we have the series subtitle: Ponder This!
One of the impressive things about Lucy in Love is the way the author handles the conflict that keeps the lovers apart. What’s different is that it’s not one of those typical spats that a good talk would solve — it’s really deep, meaningful and subtle. They DO try to talk, but it’s not all that easy to get to the bottom of the problem. All the while, reader also gets to enjoy the whole charming setting, characters, and love story. oh, and not to mention, one of the handsomest heroes I’ve run across in a long time, and I do love a handsome hero.
Here’s the blurb:
Things are finally looking up for Lucy Leti. Her bakery is doing well, her friends are amazing, and her family is supportive. She’s even so close to being past the heartbreak of her broken engagement, that she can taste it.
Henry is handsome, successful, and has been secretly in love with Lucy for years. But the musician isn’t the same man Lucy knew in high school—he’s lost weight and gained confidence.
But when the couple’s first date goes terribly wrong, they’ll both need a little perspective to see things clearly.
