    Cute Read

    In this story Ms. Grace deftly addresses the issue of age differences between hero and heroine. Pastor Warren is a widower, and Wendy Miller was one of his most faithful camp counsellors eight years ago, and is now a youth pastor at another local church.

    With skilful use of dialogue the author reveals her hero and heroine's backgrounds and their impact on present events. Mix in close communities, the gentle rivalries between the two churches and the sometimes intense disapproval of some committee members of both churches when the two pastors combine to present their annual festivities due to budget cuts on one hand and lack of space on the other and you get all the ingredients of a charming story, crammed with many different tensions and conflicts. Conflicts both internal and external. Ms. Grace pairs a bubbly heroine with a serious and introspective hero several years her senior, throws several nay-sayers in their path and then takes the reader on a fluently written journey of how they resolve each and every problem.

    The author's ability to transport this reader into her settings is artlessly achieved. The writing is fluent and carries the powerful flavour of small communities and all the concealed and sometimes open agendas within. The faith of both her hero and heroine is the backbone of the story and at times is sorely tested.

    This short story is an ideal read for anyone looking for a gentle story that can carry the reader into another world for a few moments.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    Felines and Flowers is a cute read about a youth pastor who tries hard not to fall for a young woman who used to be in his youth group.

    Though it was a short read, I felt that Ms. Grace did a good job developing the characters within 53 pages. I enjoyed getting to know Wendy, who was confident in her feelings and wasn’t wishy washy like some female protagonists can be. Warren was sweet, but uncomfortable with his feelings for Wendy, mostly thanks to her mother, whom I did not like. She was fake and insincere.

    Paul, Warren’s best friend and boss, is a good addition to the cast and brought some much needed comic relief at times, as did the kids.

    Overall I really liked this book and hope that maybe one day the author will visit Warren and Wendy again.
