Book Review: Happily Ever After (Deep Haven #1) by Susan May Warren

Footsteps to Heaven has been her dream for the longest time, a dream she doesn't think she deserves, a dream she thinks God should not give her.

But, God does provide.  He provides a wonderful house on the lake in Deep Haven for Mona.  It's a wonderful old house she needs to remodel into her bookstore and coffee shop along with her best friend, Liza, who will be selling pottery.

He also provides a handyman by the name of Joe.

Joe comes with Rip the dog and a suitcase of secrets.  His reason for appearing in Deep Haven is to visit his brother who lives at The Garden, a place for people with mental disabilities.  If he tells Mona about his brother he fears he could lose her.

Joe holds another secret, the real secret to why he runs, why he never stays in one place for very long, why he may end up leaving.

Along with Joe's secret is the devastating discovery someone wants to destroy the bookstore before it opens.  Mona sees this as a sign from God that He doesn't want her to have her dream.   Mona has her own secret, one that makes her believe God could never forgive her or give her what she wants.

What secrets are Joe and Mona hiding?  Will Footsteps to Heaven fulfill Mona's dream?

I read this book for pure pleasure.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated for this review in any way.
