Book Review - My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded--hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.

When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?

My review:
I was interested in this book right off the bat. The idea of having an old family house to renovate sounds interesting. I enjoyed the characters, especially the shenanigans of the older folk J The main characters were likable enough although I am sure I would have said something about Hockey guy’s rudeness if it were me. It does seem odd that no one previously tried to draw him out. Overall a good book, I would recommend it to others.
