Book Review: Forever After by Deborah Raney

I am reviewing this book for Glass Road Public Relations

Book Description:

When a fire destroys a homeless shelter, Jenna Morgan looses her husband and Lucas Vermontez looses his father.  Jenna struggles emotionally and financially as she tries to assemble the broken pieces of her heart and life.  Her marriage to Zach was not based on love and her mother-in-law’s meddling just causes additional stress to her life.  Jenna is trying to handle her grief on her own, apart from God.
Lucas, a Christian, was Jenna’s husband’s best friend.   When Luc helps her move and invites her out for a bite to eat, he shares the peace he has found in the Lord.  With her roots in poverty, Jenna collapses the mirage she has lived with Zach’s family, and finds her authentic self .  Luc shows her that even though she may not have had love growing up in a fatherless home, God’s love through Jesus will give her a love forever after.  Can these two find new reasons to live and love ?
My Review
Like the first book in this series, “Forever After” delves into the topics of forgiveness and faith. I alaways like it when the story points the readers to Christ. 
I thought the story was predictiable and at spots very slow. Overall I would recomend it as a light , relazing read.
