Grab your favorite beverage and have a seat; my romance novel review of Donna’s Detour follows.



First let me state, what a relaxing fun read I found in Donna’s Detour.  Written with young adults and adults in mind, this book is clean and sweet.  I found Donna and Tommy’s faith touching and enriching.  This Christian romance will warm your heart.

Author Jo Huddleston crafted a smooth well-written book.  The story-line moved gracefully from chapter to chapter as we came to know Tommy and Donna.  Furthermore, the character development proceeded throughout the story-line as we find Tommy and Donna have great faith in God and his guidance for their lives.  The story-line has just the right amount of religious elements for believability without pushing the reader.  As a result, you need not be religious to enjoy this novel.
