Once again author Jo Huddleston created a well-written, clean, sweet, romance, in Betty’s BlessingHuddleston‘s created quite a character in Betty;  funny, snarky, and opinionated.  She’s doesn’t mind stating her opinion.  However, Betty’s immature when it comes to relationships;  always expecting the worse. I wanted to shake her and tell her to grow up;  I became very impatient with her.

You will love Greg;  a man who had searched for something in his life; has he finally found it?  He’s ready for a permanent relationship, however, he’s mystified by Betty at times.  Then a two crisis’ occurs;  will Betty resolve her issues, opening her eyes and seeing the truth?

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.
