After September by Stephanie Smith GIVEAWAY

You can enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post.
Is there a chance for love later in life, after divorce or the death of a spouse? Rose Davis is about to find out. Rose's ex-husband, now married to a woman half his age, tells Rose he is moving to Washington D.C. His dream of being involved in national politics is finally happening. But what about Rose? Making the decision she needed a change, she sold the house in Portland and rented a cottage on Saint Croix. She met the doctor of the local orphanage and her life was about to change again.

This novel is pure romance. There is no complex plot involved. There is not additional information to learn about something interesting, something I like to see in a romance. There is a steamy romance. I was a little concerned about the intensity of the romance between Rose and Patrick, the doctor. It was a little too physical for me.

The strength of this novel is highlighting the difference between a faithful Christian and a nominal one. Rose was angry with God after her divorce and distanced herself from Him. Patrick is a faithful Christian and the difference in their lives is well presented.

I recommend this novel to those who enjoy a Christian romance that is all romance and quite intense with respect to the physical attraction between the characters.
