A Worthy Pursuit

A Worthy Pursuit
Karen Witemeyer
Charlotte was given custody of an exceptional little girl, Lily. But her grandfather wants to use her abilities to help him cheat at business. So he's hired the best "retriever" for the job. But he fails to mention to Stone that he doesn't exactly have custody of Lily. So Stone arrives to retrieve Lily and gets the surprise of a lifetime. Now Charlotte and Stone must race against time to find a way to keep Lily safe from her conniving grandfather.

The writing had the author's signature humor and faith woven into the story. Several of the characters were endearing and added depth to the story. The plot wasn't super gripping or suspenseful for me and often didn't seem realistic. I love this author and while I definitely enjoyed the story, this wasn't one of my favorite of her books. I appreciated the way that she dealt with the issues the main characters had. She wrote the gifted children into the story in a sweet and delightful way. Overall, I would say it was worth my time since I enjoyed reading it, but I would have enjoyed it more if it had more of a realistic plot.

I received this book free of charge from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
