    This is the first time I have read Lauraine Snelling but it won't be the last! I was so caught up in the story I had the hardest time putting this book down to get anything done!!

    Dinah is a single woman, self- sufficient, biochemist and CEO of her own company, and very much in control of her life! Until.... she meets Jonah. She sees him just hanging out in front of her office building with a dog by his side. After taking pity on him, and buying him some breakfast, he shows up more frequently. She cant get him out of her mind... who is he, where is his family, where does he live, what kind of home does he have? He is not opening up.

    After a night time emergency, in which Dinah takes Jonah and his dog to the urgent care vet, her life begins to change forever. They meet Dr G., with whom Dinah seems to clash, but Jonah seems to love. Dinah is able to find out more about Jonahs family, but in doing so, she is sealing her fate. And Dr G.? Well, somehow... God keeps putting him back in the picture. Even he doesnt understand why, when all he wants is to move on and get those eyes out of his mind.

    Lauraine does an incredible job drawing you in to the story. Captivating you with the tale. Keeping you wondering and guessing. But hers is a tale of lives interwoven by God's grace. A tale of how He works in our lives behind the scenes drawing us back to Him even as we are running away. A tale of love, fear, faith and healing. It weaves the grace of God and hope into every corner of these lives. The past cannot be simply buried, it must be opened up and dealt with. And as it is, Gods amazing grace heals the hurts, the wounds, the pain and draws us into his loving arms, those arms that have been there all along guiding, sustaining, and waiting patiently for us to realize the error of our ways.

    Coincidence? No providence is what this book is about! Highly recommended - with time to read! You will be blessed and inspired!

    A big thanks to Lauraine who was willing to send me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! I am blessed to receive and read it!

    I only bought the book because I like the cover. The whole time I was reading it I kept looking at the cover of the little boy and the dog. So cute. At the ending of the book Jonah and Dinah were still having problems. The epilogue sounded like they were one big happy family. There was no mention of Jonah or Dinah for that matter going to counseling. I think there should have been a sequel rather than an epilogue. The ending was rushed and disappointing.

    This review was written for Heaven Sent Rain.
    Heaven Sent Rain is compelling reading. I was caught up in the life of the main character, Dinah, and the disruptive changes happening in her life. She is the CEO of a company she founded, specializing in herbal supplements. She has a disciplined and organized life.

    All of that falls apart when she meets seven year old Jonah and his dog, Downmutt. Dinah befriends the young boy she notices sitting outside the burger place where she grabs breakfast. She is soon buying him breakfast and later meets his dying mom. An emergency phone call at night from Jonah and Dinah is gathering up him and a bleeding Downmutt, taking them first to her pristine condo and then to an emergency care veterinarian.

    Dinah's life is turned upside down. Jonah's mother had made arrangements for Dinah to be Jonah's guardian. Dinah's latest supplement, an herbal aid for diabetics, is running into trouble thanks to drug companies fearful of losing money. And that veterinarian, Dr. G. What is it about him that unsettles her? Dinah's life crashes when she gets a call from the elementary school. Jonah is in serious trouble.

    I really liked the character development in this novel. Dinah reluctantly allows a boy and his dirty dog into her all white dcor. That is symbolic of her letting them into her white, clean, and well organized life. Taking in Jonah is a drastic change to her disciplined life and controlled being. Jonah is a Christian and that is hard for Dinah who is very mad at God.

    Through dialog with the veterinarian, we learn why she made her life this way and why she has gone into working with herbal supplements. Jonah is a dear boy. I just wanted to hug him.

    There are just a couple of issues that made this novel less than perfect. I felt a certain disconnect from time to time. The point of view changes frequently from Dinah to Dr. G. and there were times I felt I was almost reading a different novel, like foreign matter had been inserted into the story line. It all comes together at the end but it was a disconcerting experience.

    Also, the end is so abrupt. The novel builds and builds with all the issues Dinah is experiencing. The latest supplement is facing FDA intervention, delaying its release by months. And Jonah is seriously acting out. Then, poof, the epilogue. It is a fairy tale ending rather than one where we know all of these issues were successfully worked through. I felt I was cheated out of the healing process when I had become so familiar with the problems throughout the novel.

    Nonetheless, even with the abrupt ending, this novel is a rewarding one. The character study of Dinah is superb. It is so well done I wish there would have been a sequel, rather than an abrupt epilogue.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this novel from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    This review was written for Heaven Sent Rain.


    But I received a free review copy in eBook from Lauraine Snelling and I decided to give it a try.

    And darn it! Now Im going to have to go buy the paper version too!

    BE WARNED! This book will pull you right in and it will NOT let go of your heart strings!

    And its not just the mysterious little boy who has hold of them either.



    Chapter 1 of Heaven Sent Rain had me going Huh What Why

    It dives right into the story and hits the ground running. And it only took a paragraph for me to be hooked.

    Chapter 2 had me going Awwww. And then, Huh again I will NOT spoil it for you but I will say this is an extraordinary book written about an unexpected journey guided by what some will probably try to deny is The Holy Spirit even though it clearly is Gods voice that Dinah is hearing in the completely unexpected thoughts that simply will not stop and it is a book that EVERYONE should read!

    WOW!

    I am so glad I asked to review this book. I might have missed out on the tremendous blessing otherwise.

    The absolutely only complaint I have is that Lauraine is just a bit stingy with details she drops little hints of detail and then moves on without explaining. And perhaps her usual readers prefer this or they know enough about her writing to read between the lines but it just left me feeling confused.

    However, the impact of the story itself far outweighs any petty issues I might have. It is well worth a read!

    I would also like to extend my congratulations to the cover designer. It is spectacular. Not only does it bring to mind what we see in the book (minus perhaps the rain coat our mysterious little boy is wearing), it also looks so realistic, you can almost hear the rain.

    BRAVO!

    I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
