About the Book
A birthday pushing forty? He couldn’t care less.
Dating for the first time at his age? Yeah, he’s taking notes.
Agent Quincy Adams, aka “Q,” is on a mission to educate himself about romantic relationships—and more specifically, the pretty art therapist who’s captured his heart. For now, her signature smile has outlasted his bumbling ineptitude.
Easy-going Hope Montgomery has been sweetly silencing her biological clock, but Christmas separations trigger alarm bells. Is she a patient saint or a hopeless coward?
In a humorous turn of events, struggling newlyweds disrupt Q’s assumptions about the world and inadvertently nudge him toward a second chance for a holiday romance. If you enjoy near kiss misses and light-hearted inspiration, you’re a click away from a two-for-one love story!
In My Opinion
Rekindling Hope by Alicia Gilliam is a two-for-one novella.
The main story thread is about Q and Hope. While it took me a little while to connect with these two characters, once I got to know them a little bit, I was rooting for them. Q is not comfortable with people and Gilliam wrote his character well.
Readers get a bonus storyline with Seth, Cassady, and six-year-old Benji (who have been main characters in other books by Gilliam). While there was some backstory missing from this novella, I never felt lost or confused by what was happening with Q and Hope.
This is a good read to cozy up with on a rainy or cold evening and get lost in. Rekindling Hope is about letting go and fully embracing the people God brings into our lives.
