Always On My Mind

Author: Susan May Warren
Publisher: Tyndale
December 2014
ISBN:    978-1414378442
Genre: Contemporary romance

Come home to the Christiansens’, where faith and family meet real life.

After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.

Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.

Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?

ALWAYS ON MY MIND is the fourth book in Ms. Warren’s A Christianson Family series. While it easily stands alone, readers will want to read the first three books in the series (plus the Christmas one) to be brought up to speed with all the siblings and the parents.  The books are:  It Had to Be You, Take a Chance on Me, When I Fall in Love, Evergreen, and ALWAYS ON MY MIND.

Sigh. I absolutely love Ms. Warren’s books, and ALWAYS ON MY MIND was just as good as I imagined. I picked it up, dove  in, and except for what I had to put the book down to do (like going to church Wednesday night) I didn’t put it down. It was that good. I immersed myself in this story. I felt Raina’s pain. Casper’s heartbreak and pride. And the faith message…. I love the way Ms. Warren’s books always minister to the hurting soul. So much truth in there.

I am absolutely waiting impatiently for the next book in this series The Wonder of You coming in July 2015.  There is a great hook leading into the next book at the end….

If you love contemporary romance, Ms. Warren is the absolute best. Don’t miss ALWAYS ON MY MIND.

Available in ebook and paperback. 400 pages.
