Overview

From the acclaimed author of Something Real and Original Love comes a tender, witty, and sexy tale of two very different souls whose prayers are answered in surprising ways. . .

When recently widowed Joe Murphy "meets" Shawna Mitchell in an online forum, all he's seeking is advice on keeping his home and his family together. Shawna's compassionate e-mails become his lifeline, and as months pass their correspondence grows deep and warm. Discovering that Shawna lives only blocks away. . .well, it feels like more than luck. It feels a lot like hope.

With three children to raise, Shawna has no interest in getting close to another man, let alone one who's got three kids of his own. And the fact that Joe's white can only complicate matters more. But now, as they navigate family dates and vacations and their own doubts and fears, Joe and Shawna find themselves moving toward a future that's bright, new, and totally unexpected. Because the only thing more difficult than uniting two stubborn families would be walking away from something that feels so right. . .

    Great Book

    This was such a good book, a very positive story. J.J. Murray is now one of my favorite authors and I can not wait to read all of his books!

    Great Internet Meet, Great and Love Story!!

    This is the story of two people who meet through a internet blog. They bonded because of similar life circumstances and their friendship quickly progress to a lasting love with more than enough obstacles to overcome. A love story of two spiritually conscientious people who decided the obstacles were worth working through! Just a warm heartfelt love story!

    Cute

    I thought they were cute and sweet. Waited until marriage and they weren't raunchy when they finally connected it. My favorite couple in his writing so far. Even though they each had three kids already.

    If you are looking for the passion and fire that most romance bo

    If you are looking for the passion and fire that most romance books have then this is not the book for you. I gave the book 3 stars because it's actually the only "romance" book I've read that could actually happen in real life. I didn't like that fact that they harped on the whole Black/White thing too much. I loved how the characters were both Christians who saved themselves for marriage but COME ONE! I wish they had more passionate moments, the chemistry just wasn't there. Not saying I wished they has sex more but I wish there was more of a fire between them. They were actually quite dull and more. I actually had to skip quite a few pages to stay awake.

    Heart warming

    My first contemporary novel by Mr. Murray. Always wanted to experience a male romance writer. J.J. Murray is very talented. He writes from life experiences. The story was warming, however I did not feel the chemistry between the main characters. The story focused on the heart of the family instead of its main purpose the relationship development.

    Wouldn't recommended

    It wasn't worth the purchase, the download nor the amount of time spent reading the 100+r pages. It's usual and rare for me to not finish a book, but the title "Too Much of a Good Thing" should have been "Too Much of a Bad Thing"! One of the worst romance book I've read and I made the sad mistake of purchasing another book by this author at the same time, which is the second worst! The main characters are poorly developed, boring (yawn) and lack any chemistry. I would have stop reading the book many pages ago had it not been the lukewarm daily activities of the six kids. This book and the other one I shouldn't have bought will be deleted ASAP. There are other great interracial romance writers other there, but J.J. Murray isn't one of them.

    Needs to made into a lifetime original movie

    J.J Murray has become one of my favorite authors. He writes a romantic story of two people who have lost but are finding the pieces within each other. They struggle to bring their families together but in the end God does prevail and watches over this family. I love this book as well because it shows that love is so beyond skin deep! A MUST READ!
