Book Description: 

From bestselling Christian fiction author Sally John comes a brand-new series featuring broken lives, new beginnings…and unexpected romance.

Welcome to Casa de Vida–eleven quaint bungalows located three blocks from the Pacific Ocean in tiny Seaside Village, California. Owner Liv McAlister never advertises vacancies beyond a small hand-lettered sign out front, preferring to trust that God will send the right tenant at just the right time. And He always does.

Meet Jasmyn Albright–she’s had more than her share of bad breaks lately, beginning with the tornado that demolished her farmhouse. Emotionally fragile and feeling utterly alone, Jasmyn heads west, hoping to outrun her heartbreak. And she doesn’t stop until she notices a small sign that reads “Vacancy.” Before she’s quite aware of how it all happened, Jasmyn finds herself the newest tenant at Casa de Vida. She hardly dares to hope that her fortunes might be about to change…but of course when God is at work, anything can happen, and new beginnings are one of His specialties.

Sometimes among strangers, family happens. And sometimes, when we least expect it, romance is a welcome guest.

Review

 

I haven’t read anything by Sally John is a few years so I was so excited to see this book published this year.  She is a talented author.  In this book she weaves a web around her readers, drawing them into her characters’ world. I read this book in two sittings, unable to put it down. The characters came alive on the page and were easy to relate to. John offers wonderful insight into each character’s make up, and how she handles her problems. I loved how she portrays Jasmyn’s crisis and healing as well as the faith that Liv has for God to bring the right person to the rentals.Sally John seamlessly ties the sub-plots together through masterful writing. Her secondary characters are just as delightful as the main ones and tote a tad of mystery around them. When I turned the last page of this book, I sighed. I didn’t want it to end. I look forward to the next installment.
