Laura Hartley is an author of Christian Fiction. Her stories aim to portray the life of a Christian outside the walls of the church. She loves quirky characters with penchant for movie quotes, humor and always a bit of romance to bring light into the heavy realities they may face. She lives in Katy, Tx with her husband, three kids and a dog named Jim Howlpert. Her favorite place to write is on the patio of a restaurant or coffee shop, or any outdoor public space, while listening to Explosions in the Sky.
The setting is delightful, and the characters become like family. I loved re-reading this for a 2nd time, and can't wait to see where the story continues in Book 2! Highly recommend this sweet romance and beautiful display how our mighty God loves us!
Hartley weaves a tale of heartbreak and healing through the power of family, God’s grace, and love. She does an amazing job of setting the scene so you feel you are at the marina or any other place at the lake. She masterfully shows how God can work in so many ways, and it’s not until we put the pieces together that we see it! Can’t wait to read more from Laura Hartley!!
The setting and storytelling are lovely. I loved every minute of this book. She paints a beautiful picture of the way life really is with all its ups and downs. She’s not afraid to deal with hard topics and does a masterful job showing the Spirit work of heart change and relationship with God. Beautifully done! I can’t wait for more from this author!
