Happy Monday, Reader Friends!

Genre: LDS, Christian, clean romance 
Publisher: Indie
Publication date: December 8, 2016
Number of pages: 212

Writer Laura Nelson can’t believe her luck. Since staying in a beach house on the Oregon coast, she’s had two run-ins with the police. The upside is that handsome Officer David Harrington handled both situations.

Laura, still stinging from years of 

making poor choices, has come to Oregon to take control of her life.​ She recently renewed her relationship with God and the church, and she’s in the process of writing her next mystery. But is she ready for romance?
 
David has a rule: don’t get close to women. He is ashamed of his unlawful past, a father in jail and an alcoholic mother. His triple date dare is a sure-fire way to keep women at bay. Who would love him with all his baggage anyway?
​When he asks Laura out, David figures she will crash and burn as planned. He had no idea she would not only change the rules of his famous dating dare, but sneak her way into his heart.

Purchase: Amazon                          Add to shelf: Goodreads

I recently moved back to Oregon with my husband of 31 years, where we’ve built a house on 68 acres about 40 miles outside of Portland. After growing up in Oregon, we’ve lived in Utah, Arizona, and Hawaii. We have three children, two girls and a boy, all grown and all writers themselves. We also have a dog (Golden Retriever) and a cat (Black). I love to write inspirational romance and hope my readers will be both entertained and uplifted by my stories. When I’m not writing, I love to paint (watercolors, oils, and acrylics), sew, knit, crochet, and read (of course)! My second novel will be published in 2017.

Talking to God as though He was just sitting right next to her or walking alongside her was the kind of prayer that worked for her.  She never had been good at the formal prayer stuff, the kneeling and organized prayers of thanking, offering, and asking.  She didn’t even always end her prayers the way she had been taught, “in Jesus’s name,” but she knew her heart was in the right place, and she was working on being closer to the Lord.

This was my first read of Ms. Henderson’s. I always love reading a new author because I’m hoping they’ll move to my list of must-read. And after reading The Triple Date Dare, I can honestly say I’ll read Ms. Henderson again.

The Triple Date Dare was a romance, but not your stereotypical one. See David has some issues–and don’t we all?–and Laura likes a challenge. I absolutely loved their meet-cute! You know that first time the two main characters meet. This one takes the cake! I won’t giveaway details, suffice to say I couldn’t stop laughing.

Each meeting afterward, upped the ante for anticipation and sparks flying between Laura and the handsome police officer. What I liked most was the epiphany David experiences near the end. I wanted to shout with joy when Laura returns his advice.

​All in all, this romantic coast-side read kept me engaged and thankful for the Savior’s redeeming love.

*I give this a 4 out of 5.
​**I received a free copy through SLB tours. This review is my own, honest opinion.
