A Saint Comes Stumbling In by Bonnie McCune
Can a rejected wife conquer self-doubt, trap a criminal, and win love? A patron saint might help...
Thirty-something Joan Nelson has more to contend with than a biological clock or an identity crisis. Despite her ardent belief in a conventional marriage, she finds herself deserted for a younger, slimmer woman. Lacking any skills or education, she's thrust unprepared into the nightmare challenge of making a living for the first time in her sheltered existence.
A job as a receptionist in a law firm is the first rung on the ladder to her independence. Yet the taste of success sours when Joan considers the emptiness of her personal life. How can she reconstruct her damaged life and heal her bruised ego? Ill-equipped for the singles scene, she embarks on a confusing, sometimes frightening, new lifestyle.
When Joan stumbles on a crime perpetuated by a charming cad, she must defy her boss, jeopardize her newly won stability, and reject her friends. Her namesake, Joan of Arc, provides a model of courage and insight. If she risks danger and uncertainty, will she discover that independence and adulthood can be both enjoyable and fulfilling? Does optimism beat pessimism? Who would have dreamed her final victory could solve a childhood puzzle while it brings her true love?
Ms. McCune's debut novel is brilliant! I stayed up later than I intended to finish this romantic, laugh out loud story. It is a page turner that simply captivated me. I warmed to Joan and I felt she learned and grew throughout the story. My heart went out to Joan as she has some sad things happen in her life that she has to heal from and come to terms with. She also made me laugh so much. I loved it. Kevin the guy is a saint! Oh the things he puts up with. I like that he also wants what is best for Joan. I enjoyed the crime/ mystery aspect as well. I would highly recommend this delightful read. It has handful of swear words. But other than that it is clean. I wish Ms. McCune all the best in her career as an author!
