About the Book:
Karen Brown is angry at God, and at herself, for falling in love with Lionel Adams, her ex-fiancé. When her beloved suddenly disappears, along with thousands of dollars stolen from their mega-church, she re-locates back to her hometown in Annapolis Maryland to live with her mother. She’s stunned to discover handsome plumber Keith Baxter living next door. Keith is smitten with Karen, but wonders if she’s still in love with Lionel. He wants Karen to accept him into her life, but he doesn’t know if he’d be a good match for her due to his troubled past. Can Karen forgive Lionel, and let the Lord back into her heart?

My Review:
Wow! I am so amazed with Ceclia’s work! It just gets better and better with each book. I loved Cecelia’s books, John’s Quest and Milk Money, and this one is no different…it did not disappoint.

In Bittersweet Memories, Cecelia pulls together amazing new characters and a plot that will capture your heart from the beginning. She tells a story of heartache, broken trust, yearning and learning to accept God’s redeeming love and His will. I can relate alot to Karen with her broken trust issues, but I also felt drawn to Keith and his struggles as well. They were just fit so well with the plot and I didn’t want to say goodbye to these new friends.I was smiling and praying with them and I even found myself crying at the end.

If you are looking for a wonderful, heart warming and God filled story then I definitely suggest that you grab a copy of Chesapeake Weddings, which includes this amazing story, Bittersweet Memories. Is it worthy of 5 stars? You bet! At least that is what I feel about it. Grab a copy and see for yourself, the amazing talent of Cecelia Dowdy and her God filled stories.
