"Surprised by Love" by Julie Lessman

San Francisco here we come! I am loving my visit here with each new gem Julie adds to this series. Once again she delivers a romantic love story that shines faith through and through. 

The Characters are those in which we can relate to. They are not so far out there that they are unreachable for the reader. Julie is gifted in bringing the reader into the story and weaving it so that the reader isn't just upfront with popcorn looking at the big screen, but making us feel like we are a part of the story. 

I have loved this journey with the McClare sisters. With each story Julie allows us to better know each sister, but still interweaving the sisters in the story-line. We not only meet them once again and catch up like old friends, but we too meet new friends. 

What I love about this story is how the characters plan their lives in the way they see it should go, but find out that God has other plans. When we leave God out of the planning things tend to get confusing and we lose track of who we truly are and what is important in life. His plans are perfect and come together in perfect timing. For us to see all He has for us we often have to surrender and go through a bit of a struggle letting go of what we think life should be and embracing the life He has for us. 

I am a huge Julie Lessman fan! This girl can pen a novel that grabs the heart and tugs at every emotion. If you haven't read the first two books in this series I suggest that you begin with them. Follow my links and you can check out the reviews for each in this series. I'm never let down by Julie. She is a gem!! There's a reason she has received seventeen Romance Writers of America Awards!! 

This novel was a gift from Revell for sharing my review with you.
