Calming the Storm by Melanie D. Snitker

(From My Latest Reading List in November 2018)

About the book

A marriage of convenience isn’t exactly what she had in mind.

After a rocky start, Rachel Peters finally has her life on track. Then a tragic accident takes away her sister and leaves her to raise her niece, Kendra, alone. About to lose custody of her last blood relative, Rachel is desperate to prove she can adequately care for her niece. On the verge of running away to keep Kendra, a new friend offers Rachel an opportunity she can’t refuse.

Brandon Barlow has long admired Rachel. When her world begins to fall apart, he feels led to help. A marriage of convenience would enable him to provide Rachel and Kendra with a stable place to live, proper health insurance, and a viable shot at staying together. Once Rachel gained full custody of her niece, the marriage could be annulled.

His plan provides the perfect solution until Brandon realizes he’s fallen in love with Rachel. Through love and patience, can he help Rachel realize that, even when she experiences storms in her life, she’s never alone?

My thoughts

I really enjoyed this book. It has a Christian tone to it and the storyline has such a ‘Knight in shining armour’ feel to it. I love the way Melanie told her story and it was such a lovely Christian romance. I am truly impressed.

I gave this book a 5/5 star rating.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
