About the Book:

A Sensational CBA Debut in Contemporary Romance!  This summer author
Becky Wade makes her CBA debut with a fun — and funny — contemporary
romance.  Amidst the light-hearted banter and laugh-out-loud moments is a
compelling spiritual journey of one woman’s choice to listen to God and
wait on him.  Filled with humor and authentic romance, My Stubborn
Heart is shaping up to be the hit of the summer.

Kate Donovan is
burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need
of an adventure. When Kate’s grandmother asks Kate to accompany her to
Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in,
Kate jumps at the chance.

Yet, she discovers a different
kind of project upon meeting the man hired to renovate the house.  Matt
Jarreau is attractive and clearly wounded — hiding from people, from
God, and from his past.  Kate can’t help but set her stubborn heart on
bringing him out of the dark and back into the light… whether he likes
it or not.

My Thoughts:

This is one of those books that I could read over and over again. When
contemporary fiction is done right, it is one of my favorite things to

Kate and Matt both have issues they need to overcome, but they need each
other. They come to rely on one another. Their relationship grows
slowly and steadily throughout the book, and it doesn’t come without a
fair share of setbacks and heartache. Their story is so sweet and so
filled with hope that it will be sure to leave a smile on your face.

The supporting characters are very entertaining. All the seniors that
Kate, and eventually Matt, end up spending most of their time with are a
hoot. Big hats at tea time, antique shopping, and wily matchmaking are
all afoot when these old folks are around.  I am so glad that I took a
chance on this book because I absolutely loved it.
