Joyfully Yours and Pumpkin Cheese Cake – A Perfect Pairing

by Pepper on November 2, 2013

PPP-Joyfully YoursHi Friends – I’m starting off my new series of  Pepper’s Perfect Pairings with recommendations on a fun little holiday romance that was just released, Joyfully Yours, by Amy Lamont.

Here’s the official blurb:

A musician and a priest walk into a grocery store—singer Faith Leary thinks this is a better opening for an off-color joke than a recipe for romance, until she finds herself ogling Father Michael in the checkout line the day before Thanksgiving. 

When Father Michael first steps in to bail Faith out of her financial jam, Faith thinks she’s being picked up at the grocery store. Right up until she catches sight of the black shirt and tab collar. Since not much in her life is going her way lately, it doesn’t come as much of a shock when Michael turns up at her mother’s Thanksgiving dinner. What does come as a surprise is the attraction that springs up between them. If only he weren’t a priest, he would be perfect for her. 

Faith’s sister finds Father Michael attractive, too, and she’s making no bones about it. Scenes from the Thorn Birds flitting through her head, it comes as a relief to Faith to find out Michael is not exactly what he seems. It’s good news until she realizes her sister is a far better match for him than her screw-up self could ever be. But if that’s true, why does Michael insist on seeing only the good in Faith, no matter how often she falls short of her too perfect sister? 

Friends, you are definitely going to want to enjoy this book with a serving or two of delicious pumpkin cheesecake.  It’s sweet, rich, and highly addictive. I pretty much could not put the book down. Loved the characters, complete with Faith’s nutty family and Michael’s overall yumminess. There were lots of lovely moments that reminded me why I adore the holiday season, and I definitely cheered at the ending. Get out your forks and prepare to love this book.  Here’s the Buy Link on Amazon.


PS – My own holiday story – Sunny’s Second Chance – will be releasing shortly as part of the 3-story anthology Candlelight and Kisses. I’m so excited about this one. Can’t wait to share it with you.
