|Terri by Sharon Srock
About the book~
Despite a bustling day care center and a new foster child, Terri Hayes hungers for a family of her own. Then a plumbing mishap leaves her homeless and questioning God’s plan. Steve Evans’s gracious offer of his basement apartment as a temporary solution is an answered prayer.
Steve is a successful writer and a good father, but Terri is horrified when Steve’s book research leads him to a harsh confrontation with the parents of her foster child. She needs to distance herself from Steve, but her efforts fall short as his two scheming daughters plot to make Terri their new stepmother.
Will harsh words and sneaky plans drive Kelsey’s family further apart and put a wedge between Terri and Steve, or does God have another plan in store?
Sharing my humble opinion~
This series is set around four friends and their friendship. The first book introduced Callie and the women of Valley View while this book picks up with Terri, a single owner of a day care center and new foster mother, but you’ll connect with all the friends again. This author writes multiple characters well, and I was never confused at any point in the book with how many characters were on scene at any given time.
I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing of the story line and the conflicts, including the romance thread. I won’t spoil the ending for you, but it caught me unaware, and I love that! This isn’t a book to curl up with for one night. As with Callie, Terri’s a book that you’ll chew and digest over a few readings. Packed with a powerful message of God’s redeeming love and His desire to heal fractured relationships, Terri will satisfy romance and women’s fiction lovers alike.
