Dance instructor Ava Carlisle lost her fiancé in a tragic car accident. Pedicab owner/operator Sawyer Mancini understands her pain all too well.
Ava and Sawyer aren’t looking for love when they meet outside an Indianapolis, Indiana hotel. Drawn to one another, these two lonely souls discover they share much in common during a six-block trip when Sawyer pedals Ava home to her downtown apartment building. When they unexpectedly meet a second time, both interpret it as freedom from the chains of past heartache and the Lord’s blessing to pursue a relationship. Although they intend to go slow, Ava and Sawyer tumble headfirst into the kind of love that only happens once in a lifetime.
A few months later, Sawyer uncovers a shocking revelation. He and Ava share an unfathomable bond they never could have imagined, and one that threatens to destroy their love. Is it a cruel twist of fate or could it somehow be God’s perfect plan for their lives?
Can Ava and Sawyer survive the ultimate test by fighting their way past old heartaches to be together and share...a love so amazing?
Love So Amazing is a delightful story by JoAnn Durgin. By page two I was already half in love with Sawyer Mancini and wanted Ava Carlisle for a close friend. These two characters display their faith, their pain, and the sparks that fly between them with charisma and charm. Sprinkles of humor add to the enjoyment. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Sawyer and his sister Allie, with her daughter Sophia bringing a wonderful dose of kid humor.
I am happy to award Love So Amazing five stars.
