Book Description:

Life holds no surprises for Devon Murphy. Her life consists of keeping tabs on her aging Irish father, working part time at a coffee shop, and building her online graphics design business. Devon’s only tricky situation is a shallow relationship with the pampered and affluent Michael Turner, who sees her as just another woman to conquer. Following his father’s death, Brandon’s only goal is to expand the family business and live life on his own terms. That is, until he walks into the coffee shop one snowy evening and meets the enchanting, red-haired barista behind the counter. But can Devon and Brandon’s attraction for each other be strong enough to help erase their deepest disappointments and renew their faith in God?

Book Excerpt:

He looked up at the menu board. “I’ll take a Grande. Black, please.”

Chuckling, she thought about how impressed her dad would be with this guy. He considered anyone who drank coffee black in the same category as his favorite actor, John Wayne. She poured the coffee, and rang up his order.

“That’s two-dollars and fifty cents.” He handed her his debit card, which she swiped.

He took the cup. “Thanks. Have a good one.”

“Yeah, you too.”

He walked over to one of the upholstered chairs and sank down into its well-used seat. The shop owner had talked of replacing the pair of relics with some sturdy, leather ones. Leather would flatter this guy much better than the faded paisley print on the old ones. Devon glanced at him out of the corner of her eye. Yes, leather was definitely his style, but not the biker stuff. No, he’d look best in a rugged, mahogany leather jacket instead of the puffy, gray parka he wore.

My Book Review:

Devon's Choice is an inspirational Christian romance that follows the story of Devon Murphy as she works through the uncertainties and choices in life. Her personal journey leads her to opening up to all of life's experiences, standing by her beliefs, discovering what is really important in life, and what will bring her true love and happiness.

This is a wonderful story that easily draws the reader into Devon's story. You can't help but feel compassion and empathy for Devon as she deals with issues in her life, it is easy to relate to her and cheer her on as she comes to terms with the choices and decisions that she makes. I enjoyed watching as Devon and Brandon worked through their personal issues with faith, belief, and trust, so that their budding romance could be given a chance to develop into a loving and happy relationship.

Devon's Choice is a very touching story that is full of emotion, it will tug at your heartstrings and leave a smile on your face.

About The Author

  Catherine Bennett

Author Catherine Bennett I grew up in Ohio where I currently live with my husband and our two rescue Labradors. Some of my favorite things include reading, shopping, pepperoni pizza, Hershey bars and hanging out with my two grown sons. I also love dogs; so going to the dog park is cheap entertainment for my husband and I! Growing up an only child, I had many imaginary friends. I believe this - and a love of books - fueled my desire to write. It was many years later that my dream of becoming a published author came true. I’m grateful to God for always keeping a story in my heart and hope you are blessed and entertained by my book.
