Review: Game of Hearts
Title: Game of Hearts
Author: Kathryn J. Bain
Game of Hearts is about a woman who is down on her luck and fighting to make a good life for herself and her children. Deborah is a single mother working as hard as she can and can barely scrape by. Things would be a lot easier if her ex-husband would cough up some child support that he owes. With supportive friends Deborah manages to keep her chin up and be the great mother that she is.
The book starts out with Deborah buying a cake for her daughter's party. While walking to her car in the rain she bumps into a hunky man named Brandon and the cake goes flying and lands on her head. Brandon being a gentleman goes back into the store and buys her a bigger and even prettier cake. This starts a relationship that is sweet and made me hope that Deborah and Brandon wind up together.
The book as a whole was an enjoyable read. I feel that it accurately described a real life situation and didn't make single parenthood a walk in the park as some books try to do. I suggest this if you enjoy Christian romance books, or even a romance book that isn't full of smut.
Disclosure: I was provided a copy of this book to give an honest review.
