My personal Rating-

While I felt like the romance was odd in some places, it was a good story. It felt very similar to the style of a Hallmark Murder Mystery movie, but had quite a bit of Spiritual content & discussions for a smaller book that I really enjoyed. Also, side note: I like the name Ezri! It’s so fun! :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
