Book Review: Always You

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was filled with bookish delight (okay that’s every weekend but whatever). Today I’m sharing a book review on Jennifer Rodewald’s Always You. It’s a Potter House book. So grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and read my thoughts!

About the Book

They made a pact of friendship. Love was not supposed to be part of the deal.

Lauren is desperate to escape the massive shadow of her father’s and sister’s political careers.

Matt is running from the biggest disappointment of his life.

After a messy meeting in a snowbound airport, they launch a new friendship, founded on a mutual love for the Lord and an agreement of respect. They find themselves working together at the Lake Shore Resort, thankful to have each other as they each carve out a fresh start. But as the winter season wears on, and through a few interesting predicaments, one begins to feel more, and the other…well. Maybe neither knows what they really want. Already wounded from the things they’ve left behind, Matt and Lauren wrestle with what comes next. Afraid to move forward. Not wanting to go back.

Each must face a dilemma that only the hand of the Potter can smooth into a hopeful, promising future. Can they surrender past hurts, as well as their future hopes and plans and trust the good intentions of the God they both love?

Always You, a contemporary Christian Romance, is Book 5 in The Potter’s House Books Series (Two). Stories of hope, redemption and second chances. Read today and be blessed.

My Thoughts

pin me

This book is absolutely adorable. From the horrifying–yet hilarious–way Lauren meets Matthew Murphy until the end, I was entertained and captivated by Always You. 

Ms. Rodewald created a wonderful cast of secondary characters that also brought entertainment to this inspirational romance. From the staff at the resort to Matthew Murphy’s brothers (who I desperately hope will get their own stories). I could easily see this book as a movie (Hallmark anyone?) and will probably reread this when I need a good laugh.

If you haven’t read Ms. Rodewald, let Always You be your introduction. You won’t be sorry.

*I received a complimentary copy from the publisher. My review was not required nor influenced.
