For Better or For Worse by Diann Hunt
At first, I was having a bit of a hard time getting into the story and relating to a 44-year-old main character, but as I read on I really began to feel for Wendy and her family issues. Wendy is a widow with two grown children, a boyfriend, a business, and a father. She has just about everything go wrong that could go wrong in her life all at one time it seems. She has a heart to serve God, but she begins to feel overwhelmed by life's storms and challenges. And then there's Marco...the divorce lawyer. He may be a hunky Italian, but that doesn't means he's perfect. Can she ever figure out how to speak her mind? Can she figure out how to not fix every little thing? With a lot of humor, many touches of honesty, and a desire to share God's love and redemption, Diann Hunt brings us a story filled with just the right amount of romance, real-life, and some time to goof off. You will definitely want to take the ride with Wendy as she deals with everything from over-eating relatives, geese populating her pond, and a snake in the shower. Enjoy!
