ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: For the Love of Joy
Series: Coastal Hearts
Author: Janet W. Ferguson
Release Date: January 1, 2021
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance / Southern rom-com
Years ago, a Dear John letter and then an IED explosion overseas rocked Davis Donnelly’s world and left him unclear about his marital status. He’d signed divorce papers, but broken mentally and physically, he’d never bothered to find out if his marriage actually ended. Now that he’s about to start a new position as an outreach minister, it’s time to settle things once and for all. At the moment he tracks down his wife—or former wife?—she takes a tumble while chasing a little boy. Her son. And that’s when life flips upside down.
Joy Jennings Donnelly made her share of mistakes. But one thing she never considered a mistake was her child, and she’ll do anything to protect him. Even keep his paternity a secret.
When she’s suddenly injured with not a soul to help her or her son, Joy is forced to rely on the man who has the most reasons to hate her.
My thoughts: After having read the other books in this series, I was thrilled to have the chance to read and review For the Love of Joy and see where Davis' story lead. After enjoying his character in the previous stories and seeing the transformation in his life as he decides to become a minister, I wanted to see what happened to him. I was not disappointed! This is a unique story of a man trying to make peace with his past and forgive the hurts that he has experienced while trying to seek closure and forgiveness. I loved the twists and turns to the story! While Hankie is a handful and Joy could be a bit much with her bossiness, this was a wonderful story of forgiveness and second chances.
While you could read this book on it's one, I highly recommend the whole series and reading them in order, just because they are that good! I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review and is in no way influenced by receiving a complimentary copy.
