CHASING DREAMS

This was a very good book – especially if you like love stories with a hint of Christianity thrown in.  This is about Jo and Luke.  Jo is a sister to Phee and Britt, who are setting up and running a BNB.  Luke works at a radio station and is a Big Brother to Mateo, who’s mother recently passed away.  Mateo’s mother asked Luke to be legal guardian to Mateo, which went through just before she passed away.  Jo also worked at the lawyer’s office that handled the matter.  So that explains how the two slightly met.

 

Meanwhile, Phee is marrying Quinn and Jo is the wedding planner.  There is a beautiful clearing at the BNB property, so the wedding happens there.  Luke also happens to be a DJ and Jo hires him.  This is where the plot thickens.  Luke and Jo get to really liking each other, but Luke has baggage – Mateo.  Does Jo want to get into a relationship where there is a 12 year old included?  This is where you come in.  You will need to read this book and find out all the details – including an old boyfriend of Jo’s showing up.

 

Joanna Chandler always dreamed of becoming an attorney. But when she left law school to help care for her dying mother, stepping away from her single-minded pursuit gave her space to reconsider. The only question is, if not law, what should she do with her life?
To keep her mind off an uncertain future, Joanna helps her older sister, Phylicia, throw an amazing outdoor wedding on the charming Missouri property the three Chandler sisters own together. That’s when she realizes wedding planning could be a thriving business of its own. And Lukas Blaine, the handsome wedding DJ, opens her mind to the possibility of love on the horizon.
But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. The young boy he’s been mentoring has lost his mother and become Luke’s ward. Mateo is sullen and angry and needs constant attention. How can Luke possibly find the time to start a new relationship or saddle someone else with a wounded child? He may have to let go of the woman of his dreams–and crush her dreams at the same time.

 

Deb Raney

 

Deborah Raney’s first novel, A Vow to Cherish, inspired the World Wide Pictures film of the same title. Deborah and her husband, Ken, traded small-town life in Kansas–the setting of many of Deb’s novels–for life in the city of Wichita. They love traveling to teach at writers conferences across the country and to visit their four children and a growing brood of grandchildren (who all live much too far away).

 

Chasing Dreams became available for sale October 22, 2019.

 

I received a complimentary copy of the ebook from NetGalley for my honest review.
