A Twist of Faith - Mitchell's Crossroads - Book 1 - Pepper Basham

My Rating
★★★★★ - You have bewitched me, body and soul. (More Info)

About the Book
Dr. Adelina Roseland has worked ten years in research as an accent reduction specialist to attain her dream job. But a secret wager to transform Appalachian cattle farmer Reese Mitchell into corporate material challenges Adelina in ways she never expected, threatening her new position. 

For one, Adelina didn't plan for the faith and friction of Reese, or the unexpected influence of his chaotic family. Now, drawn into a culture she'd tried to forget, Adelina finds the warmth of family, the hope of faith, and the joy of love melting away the deep wounds of her past. 

But when Reese discovers that he's a pawn in her climb up the academic ladder, will he forgive Adelina's deceit or will their miscommunication end in two broken lives?

My Thoughts
If you have read any of Pepper's books, you will know that she has a tendency to wreak havoc on your emotions. On one page you could be getting all teary-eyed because of Reese's tenderness and compassion...And 2 pages later you are about to thrown the book across the room because you can't handle the suspenseful stress that is being thrust upon you. 

You think I'm joking...But it is the TRUTH. I have never read a book by Pepper that hasn't brought me to tears. 

Reese Mitchell is all kinds of swoony. From his unpolished accent to his tender-loving heart. Dee swoops into town and is hoping to swoop out just as quickly...That is until God grabs a hold of her heart. Tormented with the fears and expectations of the past, Dee has very low expectations that anyone would be able to accept her for who she is. 

I LOVE when authors infuse the love of the Father into the hero. Reese is a fire-lightin', dirty diaper changin', backwoods raised, pure Appalachian, man. Dee, although raised in the mountains has her eyes set on a much bigger prize...in her opinion. 

Both Dee and Reese have unforgiveness and hurts of the past that they must learn to let go of. Forgiveness can be hard to give, and harder to receive in some cases. Especially the forgiveness that God has for us. Knowing that we don't deserve it and yet He showers us with His grace daily. 

Pepper Basham captures the grace and love of the Father in a tender and touching story that will move your heart and open your eyes to the forgiveness and redemption that He has for you. Grace Mitchell is hands down one of my favorite people EVER!!! I can't wait to see more of her in Pepper's upcoming book Charming the Troublemaker which releases November 1.

I received a complimentary copy of A Twist of Faith from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
