Deja Vu Bride by Debra Ullrick was a very enjoyable story and a quick and easy read. Olivia Roseman has lost nearly everyone she has ever loved and as a result she has turned her back on God. She was fired from her latest job because she reported her boss to the police for an attempted sexual attack. Now she is jobless, penniless, and homeless. Her ex-boss threatened that he would get even so she moved from Wheeling to Charity, West Virginia. She applies for a job at Cole Chevrolet and Erik, the owner who has a deep faith in God, senses that Olivia has reached the end of her rope. After seeing her portfolio of airbrush designs, he hires her to airbrush paint his monster trucks. Erik decides that he will do everything he can to help Olivia but she creates one challenge after the other. As Erik’s feelings for Olivia grow, he prays that she will renew her trust in God and that she will open her heart to him.
The description of all the action at the rally was so realistic that I felt as if I were sitting right there in the stands and cheering with the rest of the people. Not only could I see what was going on, I could hear all the noise from the roaring motors. Character development was excellent and the dialogue was so well done that I wanted to jump right into the conversations. The author made the characters so loveable that I could not help but cheer them on in all their endeavors. Of course, Olivia’s ex-boss was not even likeable but that is the way he was supposed to be portrayed. The story was inspiring and showed that God never leaves us even if we do pull away from Him. Not only did Debra write a great romantic story but there was enough suspense to add more enjoyment of the book. I have never been to a monster truck rally but after reading this book I feel as if I have experienced the thrill of a rally.
I highly recommend this book to everyone that enjoys a heart warming romance and also likes a little suspense in the story.

The sequel for The Bride Wore Coveralls is even better than the first in this series. Olivia is attracted to Erik but she has so much guilt for things she thought she was responsible for that she isn't willing to give love a chance. She has turned away from God because of all the loss and pain she has suffered during her life. Erik falls for Olivia but knows she has turned away from God which causes him to hesitate, as God and Jesus are so important to him. How their relationship develops and progresses is inspiring. I highly recommend this book to all who enjoy wholesome and good romance novels.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
