Pretty Little Pieces by Carmen Schober

I love Christian fiction that covers tough topics while keeping the story hopeful and real. This novel delivered all that and more!

Georgina is a TV personality for a “fixer upper” type show. She’s all set to star in a new series with her boyfriend, when he blindsides her with a “pause”. Reeling from a devastating loss in her personal life, she’s forced to try and rebuild her career, while dealing with her twin sister, and a new romance with an ex military sniper.

I loved how real both characters were. They weren’t perfect by any means, and had some tough wounds and struggles to work through. The thing I love about Christian fiction is that they come to find grace and strength in Jesus. It’s not just a “self-help” fix, or going to each other to be the saviour.

Also really enjoyed the whole TV show aspect. It’s fun to see some behind the scenes of what it takes to pull off a great home improvement show.

If you’re a fan of contemporary Christian romance, don’t miss this one. Can’t wait to see what Carmen writes next!

From the back cover:

Ambitious influencer Georgina Havoc and her designer beau Lance Broussard have been dubbed the next Chip and Joanna Gaines, but their happily-ever-after falls apart when Lance blindsides her with a "pause." The show must go on, so Georgina takes on the task of renovating a forgotten cottage in the tiny, tight-knit town of Tarragon, Tennessee on her own.

Georgina has a plan to save her relationship--and her show--but a surprise drop-in from her troubled twin sister makes things extra messy. That, and the presence of rugged ex-sniper Cassidy Stokes, who throws a wrench in all her plans.

As she salvages her shattered life, will Georgina retreat to the familiar or embrace a new design?
