Book Review: Undeniably Yours

Becky Wade's Undeniably Yours is a carefree, romantic novel with a twist of faith - simply beautiful! 

ISBN: 978-0-7642-0975-8
Product #: 51399

Back cover:  When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted--more interested in art than in oil--she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father's empire.

The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father's thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.

Bo's determined to resent the woman who's decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them--her wealth, his unworthiness, her family's outrage--and earn the right to love her.

But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their love--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

My Review:  This is an absolutely fantastic, summer read and a sweet novel for those that love christian romance novels.  The story line is crisp and the dimensions of the characters are reflective.  Reading this, I feel like I've stepped right into the farms and ranches of a Texan town and watching from the sidelines, it's that rich in description.  The stirring of a romance from Megan and Bo is pure sweetness.  They both have good hearts, good souls and a passion for Christ to bring that final fulfillness to their lives.  Though dealing with the sadness and blow of losing her father, Megan begins to put together a life in his shadows ~ running his Cole Oil company, keeping a farm afloat because she gave her word, and trying to do the right thing, keeping God as their center.  As Megan states, "she recognizes these small interventions for exactly what they were: God throwing her a lifeline through the words and hands of His people."  

From the budding romance of Megan and Bo, the grace of their selflessness to open their home and hearts to those in need, and to the antagonistic ex-husband who is determined to get what he wants at all costs, this novel is a page turner.  I stayed up until 2:30 am to finish it in one sitting!  From the excitement of this novel, I'm now anxiously awaiting reading other books written by Becky Wade.  

*Disclaimer:  I received this book for an honest review from Bethany House, a division of the Baker Publishing Group and was not required to write a positive review.  Any reflection of such is my own.
