Happy Monday, Reader Friends!
Today I’m happy to share a review of Jaycee Weaver’s latest release, Adrift. Have you added this eBook to your TBR pile yet? If you preordered this beauty is waiting and it should be moved to the top of your pile!
Let’s get started!
About the Book
The Blurb: “I’m overwhelmed.Truth be told, I’ve been overwhelmed for years. Adrift in a sea of stress and grief and clinging to the life raft of responsibility.
It’s time I start swimming again. And someday? Maybe surf the waves instead of being pulled under and dragged out to sea.
God offers so much more for Erin than a life of treading water, focusing all her time and attention on running a small business while raising her kids after the death of her husband.
Through strangely poignant dreams and a series of run-ins with an unexpectedly attractive guy from church, Erin finds the hope she’ll not only feel alive again, but maybe even ride life’s waves victoriously.
Adrift is the first of several novellas tied to the fictional Grace Springs Fellowship in the full-length Everyday Love series.These journal-style novellas are roughly 18-20K words, filled with vivid imagery and reflect the ways in which God at work in the main character’s life.”
All. The. Feels!
I loved everything about Adrift. The tone and mood actually reminded me of Nicole Deese’s All of You. And even though this book is a novella, it’s story is told in its entirety. Of course, I didn’t want to leave Erin’s world once I reached the last page, but I had the warm glow of a good story.
There is such a great illustration of being adrift in grief that when those scenes came to the forefront, I slowed my reading (fast reader here) to soak them in.
This isn’t my first read by Ms. Weaver and it certainly won’t be my last. And I’ve decided that Adrift is my favorite of hers and that I will now be a lifelong fan.

About the Author
Jaycee Weaver lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her amazing husband, three daughters, a crazy shih-tzu, and a dwarf rabbit. When she’s not writing, she’s probably in hot pursuit of her 90 million other hobbies or shuttling the kids around. Jaycee loves to read books in multiple genres, drink too much coffee (honestly, when are they going to make the coffee IV a real thing?!), sing, take landscape and floral photos, sew, cook, bake, and craft nearly anything. She considers herself a recovering perfectionist and sometimes hot mess. She does her best to live her faith in action, being open, honest, and real; letting God be Lord over the good, the bad, and the ugly even when it’s hard.
