"The Thief, The Damsel, And The Dragon" by Angela R. Watts

About this book:

  ““... the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.” ~ Psalms 91:13
  Edward Prosner is going to steal from the small town mayor of Fall Springs, North Carolina. He’s got a flawless plan of action and is determined to return honor and justice to his father’s good name. The problem he faces? He needs a date for the mayor’s dinner party.
  Lucy Levitt is a huge romantic at heart, but with her family’s ranch and her part-time job, she has no time for dating. She believes God will place her soulmate in her life when the time is right. When the new man in town asks her out, how can she say no?
  The first date seems ordinary enough, but then they begin to realize that they can’t fight their dragons alone.”

My personal Rating-
I honestly am not sure what I was expecting when I started this short book and after finishing it, I’m not sure if it met up to my thoughts. I don’t think this book was my cup of tea as I wasn’t really a fan of the main characters, but the author shows potential for future books! I would suggest no head jumping in the writing style for other books, but the faith content was good. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
