Book Review: Finding Stefanie

Finding Stephanie by Susan May Warren is touring the blog-o-sphere this week! I have thoroughly enjoyed this book--despite the distractions of my 3 little ones and life in general I just *could.not* put this novel down! There is a splendid mix of intrigue, romance, faith and inspiration set in a modern atmosphere. Susan has a fantastic way of weaving just the right amount of imagery into her tale to guide your imagination in bringing the characters to life. I think that just about any gal looking for a pleasant diversion can really get into this book. While Finding Stephanie is the third book in a series you don't really need to have read the other two books--they're all free standing and you can pick up any one and feel as though you haven't missed a beat.

Stay tuned for two exciting contests at the end of my post for a chance to win a prize!

When she put her dreams on hold to help run the family ranch, she never imagined they would slip out of sight. Luckily for Stefanie, those dreams are about to come knocking at her door.

Lincoln Cash has gained fame and fortune on the big screen, but a crippling secret leaves him one last chance to make his mark on the movie industry. With dreams of hosting a new film festival, Lincoln intends to remodel a sprawling ranch in eastern Montana to make it the new Hollywood hot spot.

Unfortunately, a house fire threatens his plans. So does opposition from his new neighbor Stefanie Noble, who's not thrilled about his Tinseltown changes. What Lincoln and Stefanie don't know is that the fire won't be the last disaster to threaten Lincoln or his future. Someone is out for revenge... but who? And who is the real target?
