Untangling The KnotUntangling The Knot

“I did what?”

Twenty-eight year old Gabriella Bessu is St. Therese’s meticulous wedding ceremony coordinator. So the fact that she has mistakenly signed her newest couple up for an annulment, rather than a wedding, sends her Catholic guilt into overdrive.

But who can blame her? The groom is gorgeous and his two kids tug at Gabriella’s heart in a way that overcomes all her best intentions. Before long she’s in over her head, fixing her mixed-up plans and helping the children and dad come to terms with their haunting grief for the mother and wife they lost years earlier.

Can Gabriella untangle her own fears and accept the messy life that God has handed them?

My review:
This book reminded me of the movies in the 90’s I used to watch when I needed a break from my life. You’d immerse yourself in these movies so that you’d feel better and uplifted. It was refreshing to read a story that centered around God but was not preachy or vanilla. It was a true story about guilt and confusion that led to redemption for both parties. It delved into the harshness of death and loss. It showed how easily it is to isolate yourself and be stuck in a rut before you know. I loved the emphasis of having faith in something and how sometimes you just need to let go and have fate work its magic. I highly recommend this book. It was like a breathe of fresh air in my drama filled life. :)
