Oh wait….it’s Tuesday…Huh??!! How can this be?!
Oh…yeah…yesterday…that holiday…that was my Monday.
I’m further behind than I thought…
Well, anyway, I hope you’re having a wonderful day!
Today I’m sharing with you about a book titled Dance of Grace, by Stacy Monson.
This book came to me as a ‘blind date’. We’ve all heard of actual blind dates, right?! Have you ever heard of a blind date with a book? Sounds pretty fun, right?!
Well, justreadtours was offering the opportunity to sign up for one of these, and I thought it sounded like fun, so I jumped for the chance!
This book arrived in the mail with a little note enclosed stating that it was my blind date! 🙂
I think this was my first read by this author. I’d heard her name before, but never gotten the chance to read anything by her.
Looking at the cover, I wasn’t necessarily captivated. This cover is probably not one I’d pick up and read just by looking at it.
But, then I cracked open the book and started reading…and was hooked!
You will meet Vanessa. She’s gone so much in her life. She’s real. I felt like I got to know her as I read her story. She’s faced losing everything–family, home, job, and more. Now she’s all alone, and doesn’t know what will become of her.
In a place where it seems there is nothing left to live for, she is given hope. And shown what grace is.
Kurt is the other main character. We find out right up front that he is no hero. He’s an ex-con, he knows all the ugliness in himself, and yet, he’s willing to step up and help others.
I loved reading about them. Seeing their characters grow as the story progressed.
I liked the speed at which their backstories were revealed. The author did a great job at making them come to life!
This book will teach you much, if you allow it! Forgiveness, second chances, hope, love, and much more!
Now I’m going to go find the rest of the series and read it!

(justreadtours–I hope I get to participate in another of your blind dates, thank you for choosing me to read and review this book! 🙂 )
