Patti JoGeorgiaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Delightful Story!October 18, 2015Patti JoGeorgiaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5REKINDLING THE WIDOWER'S HEART by Author Glynna Kaye is a delightful contemporary romance that I highly recommend. The main characters are Luke and Delaney, who have different backgrounds and a bit of an age difference yet have strong feelings for each other. Glynna Kaye does an excellent job writing believable characters--from teens all the way to older adults. Even though I've never been to Arizona mountain country, the author's descriptions made me feel I was there, observing the characters and each setting. The spiritual message was woven in nicely, and the sigh-worthy ending left me wanting to read more. I look forward to reading more Glynna Kaye books, and happily give this one FIVE STARS!!
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic readSeptember 17, 2015KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 0Meets Expectations: 5Gah! Luke Hunter is clueless. Really. Clueless. He's so invested in controlling everything that he doesn't recognize the damage he's doing to himself -- and his children. Argh, I wanted to throttle him. A lot. But at the same time I felt sorry for him because the more he tries to take control the more things unravel beyond his grasp.
Unwittingly, Delaney is at the heart of that unraveling. Sparks sizzle between the two from their very first meet but Luke is in major denial. He has lots of excuses, not the least of which is their age difference. But really, he's just piling up barriers -- a defence mechanism he's completely unaware of. At first.
That leaves Delaney in a constant state of confusion, trying to work through the mixed messages she's receiving from Luke. She's not afraid to go at it with him -- toe to toe. Speaking her mind. Standing her ground. And she calls him on his judgemental views more than a time or two.
In case you think I didn't like Luke, you're wrong. I liked him. Too much. So when he did something...stupid...I wasn't just a little disappointed. I was really disappointed. But isn't that so like real life? People build their lives around past hurts and perceived failures. They'll do incomprehensible things to protect themselves and their loved ones from any more harm.
The only solution to such a heartbreaking dilemma is to let God take control. That's a hard lesson for both Luke and Delaney to learn...and for me too, because in some ways I'm like Luke. Fussing and holding onto things I should have let go a long time ago. Come to think of it, that similarity is probably why I wanted to throttle Luke so much. :-)
Love when I find sweet nuggets of inspiration amidst my fiction!
