    2 Pastors' Kids that Will Tug on Your Heart

    Pastors' Kids Are Supposed to Go Into Ministry, Right? Natalie is the grown pastors' kid that is supposed to go into ministry. It's been her plan so long, it has never occurred to her that that might not be God's plan...even though she's not a fan of the public speaking that seems to go along with the job. She put her life on hold to take care of Dad, and after losing the job she didn't really like anyways, she has the opportunity to get "back on track" with a ministry internship. That doesn't pay enough to cover her expenses. So she reluctantly accepts a job as the nanny for her ex-fiance's infant. Sounds like a great idea. Pastors' Kids See Everything that the World Isn't Supposed to See (but maybe should) My lead pastor? He's the same inside and out. One of the most authentic people I know. He makes mistakes - and he's open about that. But 16-year-old Lili's dad is the pastor, and he makes mistakes, too. Big ones. Church-splitting ones. And Lili seems to be the only one who knows. How do you reconcile that, Daddy? Love and Other Mistakes is more than Romantic Comedy Don't get me wrong. The romance is there. (Not obnoxiously so.) The comedy is there. I laugh so hard reading this book. Natalie's life...oh my. It's like my track record of breaking dishes with my superior clumsiness. Except it's not dishes that break in her life. It's her life. But seriously? These two pastors' kids will tug on your heart. They will make you feel compassion for anyone felt stuck in a lie...or anyone who has been trying to live up to a dream that isn't her own. I just wanted to put my arm around Lili and take her to Starbucks. And maybe introduce her to my Mpact Girls so she won't feel so alone. This book was a little bit like that Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle seasoning: the right combination of spicy and sweet. And it might remind you that no matter what you've messed up in your life, be it love or other mistakes, it's not over yet. There's always a new day, a fresh start, and there's nothing broken our God can't redeem. I received a review copy of this book; all opinions are my own.

    LOVE AND OTHER MISTAKES is a great study of relationships! It covers several strong friend relationships, parent/child relationships, several marriage relationships, several dating relationships, several hopeful dating relationships AND one old, romantic, formally engaged to be married relationship that ended very badly. (Is there any way to break off an engagement that doesn’t end badly?) Natalie Groves had a calling and a plan. Then she met Jeremy who also seemed to be a part of the call & the plan - until he ditched her after they were engaged! Natalie finds herself scrambling to find her purpose again. An opportunity arises & as she considers taking an internship on the way to her “Dream Job,” her life takes a drastic turn. Guess who’s home & with an infant son in his arms? New author Jessica Kate does a great job of taking readers on a walk through the mine fields in this plot! Her characters are believable because they are imperfect like the rest of us. They are experiencing many of our struggles and challenges and some we have not faced & hope we will never have to face! She makes you feel as though you’re a fly on the wall, and privy to extra information. The plot is complex as there is a great deal of action going on - health of aging parents, workplace woes, who can you believe or trust, love interests & the list goes on! You won’t be bored while reading! In the end, readers will be blessed to have learned that it it is always important to be surrounded by a strong family group, friend group and work group. Life is too short to not be spent with people who love you and that you love dearly. Working together for a common goal will seem much less like work. It’s interesting to see how the characters grow from their past mistakes. Very enjoyable book! I was provided an ARC of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishing & NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.

    Romantic Comedy

    Love and Other Mistakes by Jessica Kate is an okay story. It is fast-paced with lots of family “issues” going on. Seven years ago, Jeremy ran out on Natalie, breaking her heart. Now, he’s back with an infant son and needing a nanny. Natalie has spent all her savings helping her parents and she just lost her job. Working for Jeremy is her only option. Will old feelings re-surface or is Natalie’s hate of Jeremy too strong? This story started out with such promise but it didn’t end so well. The characters just didn’t seem to fit. There were several references Natalie’s underwear that I thought were in poor taste; it didn’t add anything to the story. The family “issues” seemed to drag the story without getting resolved. For a Christian fiction story there was not very much repentance for wrong-doing. It was just assumed that forgiveness was a given without really being sorry for the wrongs committed. More of sorry that they were found out. I wouldn’t recommend this book. I received this book from Celebrate-Lit in exchange for my honest review.
