Welcome! Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby releases on April 30 along with The Bishop's Daughter by Patricia Johns and The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart. The ebook version of A Perfect Amish Match by Vannetta Chapman will be out on May 1. I am looking forward to reading these Christian novels.
Mini Miracles by Melissa Storm is the first book in The Church Dogs of Charleston series. It is snowy Christmas Eve night in Charleston, South Carolina when Pastor Adam Elliott realizes he forgot his cell and heads back inside Eternal Grace Church to retrieve it. As he passes their nativity, he hears a noise and looks in to find a Chihuahua with four newborn puppies. Pastor Adam scoops up the freezing mama and her babies and hustles them home to his daughter, Abigail Sutton. Abigail is a recent widow who is four months pregnant and she has lost her faith because she feels God failed to save her husband. Pastor Adam feels these special canines might be the answer to his prayers regarding his daughter. Mama Mary, the name Pastor Adam gave to the mama dog, immediately takes to Abigail. Can Abigail find her way back to God and regain her joy in living?
Mini Miracles is an emotional and illuminating story. I thought Mini Miracles was well-written with steady pacing which made it easy to read. I was drawn into Mini Miracles right away and read the book straight through. Abigail Sutton has become a hermit since her husband passed away. She has lost her faith in God and she cannot even find happiness at the prospect of her baby. Her father, Pastor Adam Elliott has been praying for Abigail. When he finds the Chihuahua’s, Pastor Adam believes his prayers have been answered. There is no manual on grieving. Each person handles it differently and must find a way to deal with it and move forward. It does not happen overnight and only someone who has lost a loved one can understand. Mama Mary and her babies are so sweet. My heart went out for the mama and her new charges. It was a miracle that Pastor Adam found them on a such a cold night. Mini Miracles is a story of healing, recovering faith, dealing with loss, and finding a way forward. There were many wonderful phrases in Mini Miracles. I want to share three of my favorites with you. “Lord works in mysterious way, but sometimes it’s quite difficult to see His plan when you’re standing right in the middle of it.” The other two are “The Lord will provide a way” and “wallowing solves nothing”. I am eager to read the rest of the books in The Church Dogs of Charleston to see how these Chihuahuas help others at Eternal Grace Church. Mini Miracles is an inspiring story that will touch your heart.
Mini Miracles is available on Amazon and through Kindle Unlimited. The next two books in The Church Dogs of Charleston are Little Loves and Dainty Darlings. Thank you for reading my review today. Tomorrow I am featuring The Mint Julep Murders by Angie Fox. May you have a joyful day. Take care and Happy Reading!
