The meek may inherit the earth, but they sure get pushed around a lot in the meantime. At least in Joy Kessler's case.
When the Lord was handing out backbones, Joy was on the phone with the insurance company appealing a claim that was, of course, ultimately denied. After thirty-nine years of trying to muster the nerve to stand up for herself, she's pretty much accepted that going after what she wants isn't worth the headache.
Joy dreams of redefining herself--as a mother, a wife, and woman of courage. The only one who sees her potential is her neighbor and best friend, Dorothea Westlake. With Dorothea in her corner, Joy can almost believe she is a lioness capable of impacting the world rather than a mouse no one respects.
When a nephew Dorothea hasn't seen in twenty years moves in under the guise of working on his college dissertation, Joy's suspicions go into full alert. What does Gunnar really want from his trusting aunt? Three days after his arrival Dorothea disappears. As the days turn into weeks with no sign of her friend, Joy becomes convinced something is terribly wrong. With no one taking her concerns seriously, Joy must uncover the truth if she hopes to save Dorothea...and herself.
A story of suspense told with humor and honesty.
Running at the first sign of opposition is nothing new to Kyla Parrish. When life gets tough, Kyla makes tracks. She's quit more jobs than most people ever apply for and she's never held onto a relationship more than a few months. Until Will Lachland. He's the first man who ever made her think of getting serious about putting down roots. But she can't forget her mother's ominous warning. Men are users. They take and take and leave nothing but a shell of who she's meant to be.
Fear of losing her heart to anyone or anything has kept Kyla running her whole life. This time, she runs from Chicago to the family farm where she spent her happiest childhood summers. A new life and a new chance at romance seem like the answer to prayer. But things are never as simple as they seem. Can Kyla find the love she longs for even though she can't forget Will? Or is something else, something bigger than Kyla herself, calling her heart toward home?
Considered the Ultimate Guide Guru, Darcy Carter has penned ultimate guides on everything from parenting multiples to the NFL draft to online trading. Regardles, she doubts she can guide herself out of a paper bag. When her editor suggests she write The Ultimate Guide to Finding Mr. Right, Darcy wants no part of it.
To avoid Mr. Right--she's pretty sure he doesn't exist--and hopefully figure out where the discontentment with her life is coming from, Darcy heads south to research one last ultimate guidebook. The questions and doubts swirling around in her head follow. If she's no longer America's Ultimate Guide Girl, who is she? Would she recognize Mr. Right if he was standing right in front of her? Where does an Ultimate Guide Girl turn for guidance? Her heavenly father who gives wisdom to all who seek it? Or can she rely on herself, the woman with all the answers?
The Ultimate Guide to Darcy Carter is a clean contemporary Christian romance is a feel-good, laugh-out-loud story that reminds us sometimes the things we work so hard for don't bring the fulfillment and happiness we seek.
