THE BLURB

Years ago, a Dear John letter and then an IED explosion overseas rocked Davis Donnelly’s world and left him unclear about his marital status. He’d signed divorce papers, but broken mentally and physically, he’d never bothered to find out if his marriage actually ended. Now that he’s about to start a new position as an outreach minister, it’s time to settle things once and for all. At the moment he tracks down his wife—or former wife?—she takes a tumble while chasing a little boy. Her son. And that’s when life flips upside down.

Joy Jennings Donnelly made her share of mistakes. But one thing she never considered a mistake was her child, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Even keep his paternity a secret.

When she’s suddenly injured with not a soul to help her or her son, Joy is forced to rely on the man who has the most reasons to hate her.

MY REVIEW

Forgiving others is hard enough. Forgiving yourself is harder. (Ask me how I know… )

I was a bit overwhelmed with all the colloquialisms, but For the Love of Joy is a true Janet Ferguson story through and through.

Endearing characters, Joy and Davis both bring a pack of issues to the relationship. Or what would be a relationship. Or what was their relationship.

A new twist on enemies-to-lovers, Ms. Ferguson weaves an interesting tale. Sometimes God uses otherwise random circumstances to teach or bless us. And Joy’s injury became one of those times. Forced into spending time together, both fighting the need for the other, well, iron does sharpen iron.

The camaraderie of Davis’ friends, their honest love and concern for Joy, their openness of their purpose—living the Gospel—all tended to wounds Joy fought hard to keep hidden.

A page-turner, for sure, I can always count on a heartfelt and adventurous story from Ms. Ferguson!

THE BLURB

Grace Logan has taken a lot of tumbles in life, but she works hard to bounce right back. Dreams shattered and hope for reconciliation gone, Grace needs a place where she can pick herself up now that her ex is marrying her former best friend. Her boss’s beach house in Santa Rosa seems like the perfect getaway, but stumbling into the attractive-but-damaged handyman next door isn’t part of the plan.

After losing his infant son—and his marriage—Seth Gibbs is left with smothering grief and guilt. Bad memories make it difficult to find a new normal, so he escapes to his family’s vacation home. Three years later, he’s still in Santa Rosa with no plans to leave. That is…until Grace falls into his life.

MY REVIEW

Sometimes it takes the broken in us to see the broken in others.

I’ve come to know that when I read a story by Ms. Ferguson, I will fall in love with her characters. Grace Loga and Seth Gibbs are no exception.

Her trying to escape a broken heart, him hiding from his, and they keep bumping into each other. And as stone sharpens stone, Grace and Seth’s encounters begin to strip away the sting and broken edges.

Ms. Ferguson digs into deep heart issues—grief, unforgiveness, betrayal—and roots them out, exposing them for the damage they create. She takes Grace and Seth through a steep learning curve, both individually and together. I appreciate her understanding of human nature, and the beauty of her stories that tell on us all so well.
