One man running from his past, two women he’s attracted to, and a peculiar town that won’t let him go. Matthew Sadler rides his ’77 Harley into Happenstance, intent on passing through, but people and events conspire to prevent his leaving. The elderly Barlow sisters consider Matt their knight on a motorcycle. Matt is entranced by Roni, the other lodger at the Happenstance Hotel who bears an uncanny resemblance to Matt’s beloved, deceased wife. The young doctor in town, Paula Percy, adores Matt’s motorcycle. However, she is suspicious of the woman from the hotel. As the days pass, the quaint little town, with its unique residents, begins to show its sinister side. When evidence of multiple thefts leads to Matt’s door, he must deal with a mystery and yet more false accusations. Do the old diaries of Amanda Rutherford Barlow hold the answers Matt so desperately seeks? Will Happenstance finally let him go, or does he have a reason to stay?
The author did a wonderful job writing this book. The beginning of the story looked nothing like the end. The twists, bends and curves of the story was superb. I enjoyed how the author wrote about how God works behind the scene in the lives of his children. Matt has lost faith in God and was running. Almost ran off the road by two wonderful sisters into Happenstance. I enjoyed reading how he got to let go of the past and face the accusations against him head-on. Even though he has to experience Roni’s wrath in the process. You’d be enamored by the two sister’s Gracyie and Emm. Wonderful women. Their spunky will make you laugh and admire them despite their age. Everyone gets to have a second chance and Paula did. I love how the author introduced her into the story! Everyone loves a love triangle story once in a while.
God’s workings behind the scenes and his consistent pursuing of mankind ran through this story.
I received a copy of the book and this is my honest opinion.
Am 20 something ish. I love God and I love to see people know Him. I love books, reading and reviewing them. My genre I read is Christian fiction and my favourite sub genres are in this order, Biblical fiction, historical fiction, contemporary and suspense. My blog is just about the books I read and review. So I pick the lessons I learn from christian fiction and share hoping people who read find God and have a relationship with Him. You can find me on Instagram @elbatya
