One of many authors I really enjoy reading their books is Julie Lessman. Her books
are wonderful, full of love, humor, drama and written in a way where you feel like
you are right there. I just finished "Grace Like Rain" and of course, it was great. One of many things I love is the family closeness of the McClare's and the closeness between Grace and
her grandpa, a retired judge. It makes you want
to visit the family and move in. If you have never read any of her books, be prepared to be hooked.
Here is a synopsis taken from Amazon:
He’s everybody’s lovable rogue.
She’s nobody’s fool who hopes to steer clear.
Until a thunderstorm sinks them both into a sea of love.
Blake “The Rake” McClare has a notorious reputation as a womanizer, which is why soft-spoken Patience Peabody carefully avoids the lovable rogue attorney at the law firm in which they both work. Until a rare thunderstorm brings them together in a love soaked with the grace of God ... and sparked with a little lightning of its own.
Julie Lessman is an award-winning author whose tagline of “Passion With a Purpose” not only underscores her intense passion for God and romance, but her staunch advocacy for sexual purity before marriage as well. A lover of all things Irish, she enjoys reading what she writes -- close-knit Irish family sagas as well as both historical and contemporary religious and inspirational romance for the sweet and Christian markets.
