  • She’s been hurt one time too many — can his patience and love heal her empty places.

    Cinda Bryant is done with men. They are not to be trusted, and only true to you until another pretty face catches their eye. Didn’t that happen to her mother? To her sister? To her, when the man she’d been engaged to for years did the unthinkable? So, why, does her heart skip a few beats when her shop is broken into, and the very attractive Officer Ortega is there to help?

    Daniel Ortega has been waiting for the right woman to come along, and Cinda is that woman. After a painful past, he’s prayed and searched for the woman God has for him, steering clear of any others. But is Cinda too wounded to see how much he cares for her? Will the woman who is determined to come between them destroy their budding relationship?

    When Daniel asks Cinda to teach a quilting class for the group of troubled teens he’s helping, he doesn’t expect her to work a miracle in their lives as well as confirming his convictions that she is his one and only. When an enemy from her past comes back to town, and Daniel’s mistake from years ago comes to light, will placing their trust in the Cornerstone of their faith be enough see them through?

    Cornerstone is a wonderful story filled with characters that became family and some that needed to be put into their place. The characters are complex with their strong points and flaws. Cinda had an issue with trust considering men but a beautiful designer and teacher of quilts. Officer Daniel Ortega is attractive to Cinda and seemed to be present when she was in need.

     

    As the story unfolds, the well thought out scenes, dialogue and ups and downs of the characters kept me absorbed until the last word was read. The underlying themes of letting go, learning to trust, forgiveness, helping others, and the analogy of God being the cornerstone even in designing a quilt made this story a winner. I appreciate the way Daniel connected to young teens that didn’t have a solid home and family support.  It was nice to catch up with Asia, Ian and other characters from the first book, Matching Points. Farrier is becoming a favorite author with her Christian Contemporary Stories that have you seeing the characters as friends and neighbors going through similar struggles. I look forward to the next book in the Driftwood series to see how everyone is doing that became family.

     

    I received a complimentary e-book from the author without any obligation to write a positive review. I have shared my own thoughts with this review.
