Set in the world of the Grant Us Grace series, this novella tells the love story of Matt and Laura Stephenson, who are familiar with Wisdom to Know, Courage to Change and Serenity to Accept by Elizabeth Maddrey.
Laura Willis is busy planning her wedding to Ryan when she catches him cheating. Again. This time with her best friend. She throws her fist, and her ring, in his face and immerses herself in work at Brenda's House of Hair. But the salon is awash in drama too as Brenda cuts corners and goes on a rampage.
Laura's coworker hairstylist, Matt Stephenson, is searching for other employment options and a new place to live. Deciding to take a risk, he determines to open his own salon and invites Laura to partner with him. Can their friendship survive the undertaking or will this joint venture be more than either of them bargained for?

I enjoyed this book as an audio book. This is the second book I have listened to in this format and found that I enjoyed being able to go about my day’s activities while listening to a wonderful story.
I didn't really like the slow, overly sweetness of her voice, and there was not much variation in the tone and depth of the voices.
No. I enjoyed listening to it as I got ready for the day, ate meals, did house work etc, but was not able to sit and listen to it all at once.
The author, while writing a gentle love story, also explores some areas of conflict such as unfaithfulness, stereotyping, moral purity etc. Joint Venture is an easy read/listen and is bound to bring a smile to your face. I will look for other books in this series and books by this author. I gave this book a top rating for its heart warming story as well as its wholesome portrayal of young love.
Believable, honest, innocent
Matt. I liked how he tried to be a good sportive friend and didn't want his friend to get hurt even though he had always loved her,
Definitely the restaurant where she finds Ryan in a lip lock with her best friend, Lydia, I loved how she finally found her backbone and was able to stand up,for herself and start making decisions on her own,
I have a hard time sitting for three plus hours so No,
At first I thought the narrator's voice was too soft and sweet sounding but the voice grew I me and I soon found it to,be very pleasant to,listen too.
