ABOUT THE BOOK:  Joy Worth arrives in Puerto Rico on her honeymoon trip–without her ex-fiancé. On a tour, she meets Park Ranger Benigno Arroyo. On several more outings, he shows her the joy of living through the beauty of his beloved island. She begins to hear God’s voice again. Joy so loves the island she decides to stay. Benigno falls in love with Joy but realizes her pain is still fresh. Joy loves him but doubts her judgment. Can Benigno Cook earn her trust and love while helping her learn to hear God’s still, quiet voice again?


Hi! I am a Kentucky gal who loves to write stories set in small towns with huge hearts. I’m a child of God, a wife, mom, and Mimi who taught school for over 27 years and now enjoys writing, reading, scrapbooking and walking. I love hearing from readers on my website or blog.

My thoughts:

I loved the spiritual aspects of this book. How many of us have struggled to hear God’s voice, or maybe we even stopped trying because we didn’t like what He might have to say? Joy has found herself in that place but starts to find her way out in this lovely setting.

The author did a great job painting a picture of Puerto Rico. I could see it in my mind very clearly.

The romance between Joy and Ben seemed to happen fast, but it is a short book so it kind of has to. I maybe would’ve liked to see a slower build so it felt more authentic but overall it was very good.

There are many things to enjoy about this book. If you are looking for an escape this might be the next book you should pick up.
