Review: Love Lifted Me by Sara Evans & Rachel Hauck

Love Lifted Me By Sara Evans and Rachel Hauck

Pages:  320

Goodreads:  Jade never knew happily-ever-after would be this messy, loud . . . delicious.
Jade Benson embraces unexpected motherhood when her husband Max gains custody of his young son. As she and Max work out their newly formed family, an invitation to coach Texas high school football sends them on a journey.
Then a stranger reveals a painful secret, and Jade faces her hardest challenge yet. When she surrenders her heart to God and to her husband, Jade discovers the joy of love lifting her above her fears.

Kritters Thoughts: The third in a series of heart wrenching stories that have an air of Christian fiction, but do not shove their religious views in your face.  Written together with country singer, Sara Evans, and well seasoned fiction author, Rachel Hauck - this series hits straight to the heart with each flip of the page.

With a gap in time between reading the second book and this third and final in the trilogy, it was still so easy to get back into Jade's life and be swept away by her struggles and extreme faith and forgiveness.  As this is the third in the series, I can't talk too much about the specifics of this book because you must go read the first two before you dive into this one.  Jade and Max are a couple that have real emotions and real experiences that help make this book enjoyable.  This couple has trials and tribulations just as another other couple.  

A job change, a big move, and the struggle to start a family are themes in this book that almost anyone who is reading can relate to, I felt Jade's struggle as she moves for Max to follow his dreams.  Whether you are a fan of chick lit or women's fiction, this series would be a perfect start to a cold winter weekend.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
