About the Book
They made a pact of friendship. Love was not supposed to be part of the deal.
Lauren is desperate to escape the massive shadow of her father’s and sister’s political careers.
Matt is running from the biggest disappointment of his life.
After a messy meeting in a snowbound airport, they launch a new friendship, founded on a mutual love for the Lord and an agreement of respect. They find themselves working together at the Lake Shore Resort, thankful to have each other as they each carve out a fresh start. But as the winter season wears on, and through a few interesting predicaments, one begins to feel more, and the other…well. Maybe neither knows what they really want. Already wounded from the things they’ve left behind, Matt and Lauren wrestle with what comes next. Afraid to move forward. Not wanting to go back.
Each must face a dilemma that only the hand of the Potter can smooth into a hopeful, promising future. Can they surrender past hurts, as well as their future hopes and plans and trust the good intentions of the God they both love?
Always You, a contemporary Christian Romance, is Book 5 in The Potter’s House Books Series (Two). Stories of hope, redemption and second chances. Read today and be blessed.
In My Opinion
I’m always a fan of a friends-to-more story but one from Jennifer Rodewald, one where friendship is born from a most embarrassing situation, is something not to miss.
Lauren and Matt are fun characters. They have a great rapport with each other, including some witty banter and silly nicknames. They are also real. They struggle with things in their life. They’ve both got people in their lives who have used them but they each deal with that in their own way.
Whether she’s writing deep subjects or more light-hearted stories (like Always You), Rodewald always leaves me at the end of her books feeling like I’ve traveled with friends.
And the good news is that there are plenty of Murphy brothers to hang out with in future books. I’m looking forward to finding out who prankster Jackson’s match is and also really want Connor’s peel back some layers on Connor.
