Great story. It was heartwarming, thought provoking, tearful and funny with loveable characters. A very enjoyable read.

If you are thinking this is your typical marriage-of-convenience story, disabuse yourself of that notion right now.  What you will find are eccentric but multi-layered characters and a unique and offbeat storyline.  Woven between the unusual plot and unconventional characters you will find pure literary genius.  Cole’s Many Strange Women takes you on a strange but fulfilling ride, which will leave you pondering long after you turn the last page. Cole’s writing style is lyrical and clever – poetic prose that jumps off the page in scripted summersaults that leave you smiling, while taking you deeper into the meaning of the story.  She grabbed me from the first page and she didn’t let go.  And just when I thought I had the story all figured out – that I thought I knew exactly where she was taking me - she surprised me with another twist and turn in the story, or she peeled back another layer of the characters. And then there is the message!  Cole does an excellent job of presenting a powerful message, one that is rarely discussed in Christian novels.  If you are looking for a thought provoking read, this story will leave you turning page after page until you reach the end and cry, “I can’t wait for the next one!”

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review. Celeste Martin thought very little of herself. She had given up on ever being happy. Especially after her sister Leah got engaged to the one man Celeste felt she would ever love. She proceeds to make arrangements with Solomon Greene for a marriage of convenience. He wanted an unattractive wife and she wanted to forget all about falling in love with her sister’s boyfriend. Little did they know that God had a plan for all of them. This was a beautiful story of faith and hope. I was in shock when Celeste told Solomon her little secret, but nothing prepared me for his, I was completely blown away. The only issue I had was Celeste’s cold demeanor toward her husband. I understand that she didn’t want to get too close, but to the point of referring to him as Mr. Greene was a bit much. All in all, this was a great Christian romance novel, one that truly inspires and teaches us that God really does answer our prayers.
