Blog Tour: Forever After

Forever After: A Hanover Falls Novel

About the Book:
Jenna Morgan mourned the loss of her husband, Zach, in the fire that destroyed the Hanover Falls homeless shelter and claimed the lives of three other firefighters. A year later, her ability to keep up the charade of prosperity she and Zach lived is at an end. Even with financial help from Zach's parents, she can't make the mortgage and credit card payments. But Jenna Morgan refuses to go back to the trailer home life from which she escaped. She's come so far. She just can't go back to that. 

Lucas Vermontez has endured physical therapy for a year, but the legs crushed while he fought the homeless shelter fire are nowhere near 100% yet. Will his dream of returning to the fire station ever become reality? And can he conquer these feelings he has for his best buddy's widow?

My Comments:
This was an engaging quick read with likable characters (along with a few I wanted to strangle).  It is Christian  fiction in the classic sense, in which one of the characters has to find Jesus before she can live happily ever after.  Themes of forgiveness, acceptance of God's will, and new starts in life are obvious, but the story is a good one.

There is one sub-plot about arson, and frankly, it fell flat.  It's kind of like reading a mystery about Tom, Dick and Harry, where John might have been mentioned in one sentence early on (or maybe in another book) and at the end you find out that John's daughter did it.  My reaction was simply "What's that got to do with anything?".

If you are fan of Christian romance novels, you'll probably like this one.  If not, take a look around my blog, maybe you'll find something more to your taste.  Grade:  B.

Thanks to the publisher for providing a complimentary review copy.  I was under no obligation to provide a positive review.
