Where There’s Faith is a story of second chances with a twist. The author skilfully brought together Robert and Faith in spite of their traumatised pasts. In fact, they are attracted to each other from the first grumpy encounter. The two seem to find each other again and again to help and support each other.
Sweet, bestselling author Faith finds peace in the cottage offered by her friend to write, she also finds love. Only she does not know or remember if it is the real thing. Not knowing where she came from or who she was Faith is wary of finding love with Robbie yet she cannot stop herself from falling for him. He is equally conflicted about moving on after his wife’s death but succumbs to the love he feels for Faith.
They bond over the cold winter days and the trauma both have faced. Little do they know how much they have in common. The book is a little bit predictable as I was able to guess the connection but not the twist! The author spun a tale of mystery, second chances and deceit. A love lost because of selfish people. I found the story interesting with twists that kept the story going. I wanted the two of them to find each other.
The author has written a good book with many secondary characters, which find their stories in other books, but this one comes out fine as a standalone book. I felt the other characters enriched the story and added layers to the book.
The suspense in the end when the two are about to meet made for a gripping read but I felt it to be a bit simplistic – a few more details about the original crime since Faith cannot remember anything would have helped. How the culprit is caught when lives are in jeopardy made for a thrilling but short read. Also, I wanted to know why Faith was left the way she was when she had her accident. These, however, did not stop me from enjoying the book.
Where There’s Faith is a bittersweet love story that tugged at the heartstrings, a read for a cosy weekend with a book and happy endings and new beginnings.
“Anything is possible if you truly believe.” – This is indeed true for this book.
Where There’s Faith (Fairfield Corners Book 3)
A past she can’t remember. A love he can’t forget.
After hitting rock bottom, Robert Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly and alone at his family’s lake cottage. Blaming himself for the accident that claimed his wife and unborn baby, he spent most of his time alone and grieving until Faith moved into the cottage next door.
Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and would give her the time to figure out her next move. But then she met the reclusive guy next door.
Robbie and Faith – can two broken people who vowed to live their lives alone find happiness together?
