    "Not a Romance by any definition"

    I can't begin to say how disappointed I was with this book.

    First, I bought it not realizing it was supposed to be a "Christian" romance.

    That was fine, once I realized it. What was not fine was the distinct impression I had that the author had been led by some third party to change the essential plot device in order to fit some unknown set of requirements.

    Third, an opportunity to show redemption and salvation to a nefarious character, it was discarded without enough explanation as to why.

    Fourth - a Romance always has a happy ending. If it doesn't, it isn't a romance.

    The author needs a new editor, I think, or a new publisher.

    "Really awful"

    The message in the Christian book is a mess. The main character is told by others that God loves loves in spite of a youthful mistake and her unique spirit. What is shown however, is that she must atone for her "sin." The real sinner in the story gets no chance for redemption.
    Spoilers----

    The elders of the church, should've been smacked in the head with first stone! Instead she doesn't marry the pastor, not just because she doesn't love him, but because her hats and having sex once will cause trouble with the deacons.

    This is stupid on many levels. MC is beloved by all. How can she be beloved and a scarlet woman that's not good enough for the pastor unless she gives up her hats and evil bicycle? It's important to show not tell. This might be a good beginning of a Christain romance, but without the redemption or HEA- it isn't Christian or a romance.

    "Not Worth The Listen or Dough"

    This book had neither passion nor sex. Instead it was a religious book masquerading as a romance novel. The main character was sweet but dippy, and the suitors were jerks. Save your dough!
