Prevailing Love: 3-in-1 Collection: Sealed With a Kiss, the Wedding Wish, Montana Sky
Its funny sometimes how your mood can influence whether you enjoy reading a book, or not. Prevailing Love: 3-in-1 Collection: Sealed With a Kiss, the Wedding Wish, Montana Sky is three Christian romance novellas in one. The first is about Ethan, a jet-setting rich bachelor who inherits his best friends' eleven-year-old daughter when they are killed in a car accident. He takes her to see a Christian counselor and guess what happens? The second is about a woman who is dying. She has a baby daughter, but her husband recently died. However, she has two best friends from high school, one male and one female, both of whom she knows love the other--but neither of whom knows the other loves them. Guess what happens. The third is set in Montana ranch country and pits a rancher against a wolf-loving vet. Guess what happens.
I knew I wasn't getting any literary classic when I picked this book up, but what I wanted were some short fun light reads. Well, they were short and light, and last nite I was able to roll my eyes at the writing style and excessive scripture quotes and just go with the stories. I started the third one tonite, and just couldn't take it. Maybe it is like dessert--too much and you get sick. Unfortunately the first two story lines were reasonably good, given the genre, but the writing was just to sweet, and the characters were unrealistic. There was no real conflict, and no sexual (or romantic if that word makes you feel better) tension.
Grade D+ (I did make it through 2/3 of them)
