He loves her... He loves her not...
She's waiting for him to decide.
A young pastor of a growing church in a thriving community, Diego Flores has to come to grips with God's will for his church and his personal life.
From USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson come 10 clean and wholesome, sweet and inspirational contemporary Christian romances set on the beaches of Tybee Island and in the city of Savannah, Georgia, two of the most romantic coastal towns in the world.
Welcome to Savannah, Georgia, in the multicultural new south! Meet a group of multiracial and multiethnic churchgoing Christians who love the Lord, work hard in their careers, and seek God's will for their love lives. Against a backdrop of ocean, sand, and sun, these inspirational romances showcase aspects of the human need for God and for one another.
This collection of sweet and wholesome Christian beach romances begins with KNOW YOU MORE, the story of Diego Flores and Heidi Wei living in the city of Savannah and on the sunny beaches of Tybee Island.
Diego Flores has been interested in his best friend's younger sister since their college days, but his calling to grow Riverside Chapel in Savannah takes up most of his time. When Heidi Wei becomes his strongest supporter in his church growth ministry, how does Diego show his feelings for her without giving her the wrong idea? Does she see him as potential husband material or just the pastor of their church?
Heidi suspects that Diego is sweet on her, but he seems to believe that his divine calling prevents him from acting on it. If it isn't meant to be, she's not going to push for it. Yet every time they are together, something happens between them. Have they moved beyond the platonic relationship they have enjoyed all these years to something more personal?
When a crisis hits Heidi's family, Diego has to balance pastoring his congregation and ministering to Heidi without losing either one. Being in love while planting and growing a new church is difficult for him to juggle. Which path is more important? Which one should he focus on?

I loved this story and how it portrays people of faith. One thing I always tell people is we are not perfect just forgiven. That's the thing that comes to mind in this story of faith where even a man of the cloth has his struggles. We may say God is first but what happens when He directs us in a different direction than we think we need to go? The struggle is real but when you have friends and family who ate truly WISE counsel do you listen or turn away. Well written with characters you can and do relate to and a story that comes too close for comfort. This is a first read for me with this author and I will most definitely be back for more.
Know You More #1 Savannah Sweethearts series by Jan Thompson Pastor Diego Flores would like to spend more time with his best friend's younger sister but his calling to start Riverside Chapel in Savannah takes up most of his time. Heidi Wei is one of his strongest supporters in his ministry, does God have plans for her to be more? Heidi is aware Diego is “sweet” on her and that he thinks that because of his divine calling it prevents him from acting on it. However, every time they are together something happens between them...something personal? What plans does God have for them? Heidi and her brother, Ming, have a close relationship, but don't always agree....pretty normal for siblings. I like the way Ming looks out for Heidi and how she cares for him, his job is not the safest causing her to worry at times. Their love is evident in the way they care for each other. I love Heidi, Ming and Diego and some of the other characters. I enjoyed their interaction and how they sought each other out for support and prayer. I especially enjoyed the spiritual elements woven throughout the storyline and how the story shows that even people of faith may struggle at times with their faith. Lessons of trusting others and God, strong family and love makes this a heartwarming story. (~I also received an e-book from the author, (no monetary gain were exchanged), this is my honest review~)
