Bait And Switch by Erin Stevenson

Delightful End To The Series

Bait And Switch by Erin Stevenson is the third and final book in the St Clair Family series. It is another delightful contemporary Christian novel that has its focus on the St Clair sisters.

There is the same warm and welcoming atmosphere but with an air of tension as there are characters fleeing but we do not know from what. This reminds the reader that sometimes we run from God. He passionately pursues us and longs for us to return to Him.

The Caribbean island morphs from a honeymoon island into a place of refuge, hope and new life.

Home To You by Erin Stevenson

Go Big Or Go Home

Home To You by Erin Stevenson is another totally Christian contemporary romance and the second book in the St Clair Family series. This novel focuses on Brandon and his family. The reader catches up with familiar faces.

Home To You deals with the subject of loss. “I keep asking why, but I never get an answer.” Sometimes life deals us blows that make no sense. We petition God for answers but He seems silent. “I’m still angry.” Anger seems to follow on from grief. Life seems lonely especially in a crowd. There is good news – God has not abandoned us. No matter what we feel, God walks alongside us. Our feelings are not a reliable gauge to His presence.

God is the God of restoration, new beginnings and second chances. He does answer our prayers but not always in the way we expect. Hs plans are so much greater than ours. Why settle for good, when we can have best?

The matchmaker becomes the angel – still in her pink converses. God uses people we know to minister to us.

Plan B by Erin Stevenson

Mr Gopher And Miss Porcupine

Plan B by Erin Stevenson is the most delightful contemporary Christian romance. It is the first book in the St Clair Family series and I cannot wait for the next two books – good job I am reading a three in one omnibus!

Erin Stevenson has created really fun, warm and amusing characters who bounce their dialogue off each other. I adored the interactions between Mr Gopher and Miss Porcupine… “Who are they?” I hear you cry. I am afraid you must read the book to find out. I loved the matchmaker who wore pink converses and was as much in love with her husband now as fifty three years ago. This book proves that you do not need the internet to set up matches made in heaven, just an elderly lady with determination, kindness in her heart and the ability to spot the perfect pairing.

The setting is idyllic. With full descriptions, the reader can almost smell the exotic flowers and feel the warmth of the Caribbean.
