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.
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
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.

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
