Something Blue by Dianne Christner
Life is going well for Megan. She’s always wanted to marry a missionary and now she’s working with Chance, a charming and daring missionary pilot. Then Micah Zimmerman moves into her parent’s home as a pastoral candidate for their Conservative Mennonite church—and he doesn’t look anything like the gawky young man who had a crush on her in college. As Megan struggles with her own personal identity and faith, she begins to see the true difference between Chance and Micah. Will her insight come too late, or is there still time to find the hero of her dreams?
This book was almost frustrating to me. In the beginning, Megan goes back and forth between two different guys. Well that was fine for a while, but then it got a little old. All of a sudden she realizes one of the guys is not right for her, and she quickly forgets about him. It was too much for me. I did not like how she seemed like she was not capable of making decisions for herself. It almost seemed like the author could not think of a better conflict than which guy she should choose.
Halfway through the book, however, things started to get better. I loved the love story in the last quarter of the book, even if it took a while to get there. The conflicts and the plot became much more interesting as well. I almost feel like you could have gotten rid of the first half of this book and still enjoyed it.
I will not be reading this book again, but I am glad that I read it. While it was not the book for me, it may be just right for you. It was not all bad at all, and I recommend looking into it for yourself.
I received this book for free in return for an honest review.
