Review of Intertwined by Jennifer Slattery

Picture

I have a review! Y’all just don’t know how excited I am to write a review. It feels like forever since I wrote the last one. But, I finally finished a book that had my review fingers itching to type. Now on to the review.

I won ​Intertwined by Jennifer Slattery at a book giveaway (love giveaways)! I finally had the time to read it (thank you Thanksgiving break) and knew I wanted to do a review.​

So what’s it about? I always dread this question, because I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I also want to share my enthusiasm as to why you should read it. So I’ll give it a go.​

Tammy Kuhn is a wife and mother of two. She’s also a procurement organ coordinator. Let me tell you, to have a job that bridges the gap between life and death…well, that’s powerful stuff and speaks to her character. Add to the fact that her husband leaves her, she’s now struggling to raise her kids alone with the on-call demands of her job, and a family who wants to rescue her from it all…and you get a page turning read.​

But what about the hero you ask? Enter Tammy’s high-school sweetheart, Nick Zimmerman. Nick is fighting a custody battle for his two sons when tragedy strikes. What I liked about Nick is his willingness to cling to God’s Word when life contradicted it at every turn.​

What I liked about the book: that these characters are real Christians facing real life struggles. They discovered that life is not smooth sailing, but that the Creator of heaven and earth would be with them through it. You don’t see a lot of books that take the time to go through their everyday life troubles.​

In fact, that is what stood apart for me. This wasn’t a book where the hero and heroine are in every chapter together (and there’s nothing wrong with books that do that). They showed how they’re daily struggles were lived out. But of course, Ms. Slattery provided the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow…or as I like to think of it, God’s promises.​

This was my first read by Ms. Slattery and I would read her again in the future. You can find her on her Website and purchase the novel on Amazon (among other retailers).​

​*I would give this 4 out of 5 stars.
** I was not required to write a review after winning this book.​

  1. Hi, Toni!
    Thank you so very much for taking the time to write a review for “Intertwined”! You blessed me! 🙂 I love your statement about how you always hate telling what a book is about. I so get that! I review for Novel Reviews, and I’ve often said it’s harder to write a whole novel than a review! haha. Some writers are so great at this. I always feel I’m saying the same things, or haven’t conveyed my thoughts well enough, or whatever.
    This novel was very hard to write, for numerous reasons, but I found the relationship between Tammy and Nick the most challenging, mainly because of what Nick was going through emotionally. 🙂 Oh, to have friends, and in his case, maybe more (*wink*) to lean on in times of difficulty! Which brings me to Candace… hahaha. What’d you think of her?
    Thanks again, and I’m so tickled we got to connect on Facebook! I’m also happy that I’ve found your site. It’s beautiful, and I especially love the font you’ve chosen.

    1. Once I learned Constance’s story I loved her! I wasn’t so sure about her in the beginning but it’s amazing how people show you a glimmer behind the mask when you stop to listen and show compassion.
