I won't go into detail about the story line, you will enjoy finding things out for yourself.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters and felt like I knew them well by the end of the book. Christians make mistakes and fall into sin, thankfully we have a Heavenly Father who will forgive and restore us. Healing comes with forgiveness.
I'm excitedly awaiting Holmes next novel and highly recommend this one.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Hearing a lot of praises for Gina Holmes’ debut novel, Cro
Eric and Kyra marriage is down the tubes and their son, Benji, is suddenly faced with a midlife crisis. The book is set in first person, from Eric’s point of view, thus giving me a very unique view of the story. While I understood Eric was far from perfect and enjoyed watching him grow throughout the story, I had a hard time liking him. The way he handled things and what he did had me on the verge of being depressed!
Because part of their broken marriage is because of an affair Eric had with a (much younger) coworker, I wouldn’t recommend Dry as Rain for teens. But it isn’t really directed toward younger readers anyway.
So, while I didn’t find Dry as Rain as captivating a read as I had hoped, I would suggest reading more reviews before coming to a conclusion. This book just didn’t work for me—but it might for you.
Gina Holmes’ writing was wonderful and writing in such a way, it was almost an effortless read! Seriously, I found myself flying easily through the pages; just taking the story in. I can now understand how she became a bestselling author with her debut novel!
I reviewed this book for Tyndale House Publishing. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

Read below for my review
I am suppose to write a review on my blog plus online store for getting this book,so below is what i wrote on my blog.
I recently had the chance to review this book. Sadly though I didn't read very far. It didn't seem like a Christian read and it's not labeled on the book as Christian fiction like I thought it was,it might be on up in the book but I stopped reading it. This is about a man who cheated on his wife and she was in a wreck and does not remember anything when she wakes up. I didn't feel I should promote a book that talked about Sex outside of marriage on my blog since I don't agree with any of that. I promote more of a godly blog and to keep my testimony I talk about on here I just didn't feel right on reading this book or promoting a review on it. Yes the book may be alright for older women who are going through this and I know this does occur in the world and you can be forgiven for this sin, but I just didn't feel that this was the kind of fiction I wanted to read or promote on this blog when I started to read it. It this offends you that I won't read it I am sorry about that but I will stand behind my convictions and what I feel isn't good reading for me too be reading. I had to write this post to keep my agreement with posting an honest review of how I felt. I don't want my reading of books to go in that direction and I want to uphold this as a clean Christian blog and not promote stuff that I would not read.
Received this book free from Tyndale for my honest review
