Another Friday! Readers, I hope you have a great weekend with your favorite books. August is halfway over already! Next week, I’m sending out my newsletter, but for now I’m sharing a first line from one of my favorite authors, Julie Lessman.

I couldn’t wait for this final book in the Isle of Hope series to come out. His Steadfast Love met and exceeded all of my expectations. If you want to see the rest of my thoughts, check out my review.
About the Book
She’s bent on fun.
He’s bent on faith.
Till true love bridges the gap.
Cat O’Bryen is the prodigal daughter unhappy with God. First, the father with whom she reconciled dies of cancer and now her twin sister and best friend marries, leaving Cat at home with a newlywed mother, her new husband, and a little brother. But when Cat moves in with a roommate of questionable morals, her family is worried, certain she’s on a path that could damage her faith forever.
Reluctant to get involved with a woman like the one who destroyed his life, ex-Navy SEAL Pastor Chase Griffin steers clear of the attraction he feels for Cat O’Bryen. Until her family begs him to take her under his wing, hoping he can draw her back into the fold. But when the draw she has on him proves too strong to resist, he must rely on the strength of God to offer a friendship as steady and strong as the God whose love is wooing her home.
“The winds of change are blowing…and it’s a category five. Catherine ‘Cat’ O’ Bryen plopped her chin in her hand on the linen-clad table, grateful for the low lighting of the candlelit ballroom while she battled another onslaught of tears.”
