An Unexpected Legacy has a sweetness to it that I personally appreciate. Being that I am a fan of historical fiction, this read was a little out of the box for me but what a pleasant surprise when I discovered traces of my favorite genre here.
Amy mingles the heartwarming romance of a young couple trusting God and taking a chance against conflict from a surprising adversary. Through the tale we see how God uses little things to grow the main character, Jessica, in her Christian walk. I especially liked the flashes between modern-day and the 1970’s.
And now for the part of the review I don’t like to share. Why? Because the good in this book far outweighs the bad, and I like to focus on the positive. No matter, there were portions of the book that dragged. Also, Chad is a little too perfect. He does everything right. Always apologizes first and takes full responsibility for conflict, even when he has legitimate arguments and good intentions when he offends Jessica.
Ultimately, An Unexpected legacy reflects the axiom, if you forget the past you’re doomed to repeat it. I recommend this book because, 1) it is a satisfying, enjoyable read, 2) it shows how God provides opportunities for us to trust him, and 3) Christian romance is supposed to teach and encourage. Amy’s book covers all these things.
Check back next week for Amy’s Interview and also for a chance to when a copy if her book!
About the book:
“Smoothies brought them together, but would the past tear them apart?”
When Chad Manning introduces himself to Jessica Garcia at her favorite smoothie shop, it’s like he stepped out of one of her romance novels. But as she tentatively walks into a relationship with this man of her dreams, secrets from their past threaten to shatter their already fragile bond. Chad and Jessica must struggle to figure out if their relationship has a chance or if there is nothing between them but a love of smoothies.
