This ebook was provided by the publisher for review purposes, but all opinions are my own.
I’m not sure if it was the writing style or just the nature of the tale requiring a certain amount of set-up, but it took me a while to become comfortable with this book. When I did, however, I really enjoyed the journey and the spiritual and life lessons the author related as a result of her journey of singleness.
I would definitely recommend this book and I hope there’s more coming from the author!
Book description: Eight setups. Eight awkward dates. Eight things God tried to teach her along the way. (Some of which she’s still trying to figure out.)
Stephanie Rische was starting to feel invisible. All around her, her friends were getting married, and she found herself decidedly alone. Stephanie couldn’t help but wonder if there was something broken in her—was she not pretty enough? Not fun enough? Not dateable enough (whatever that meant)? So she started praying in earnest for God to bring the right man into her life. And instead, He brought her matchmakers. Eight of them, to be precise.
Beloved blogger Stephanie Rische debuts with this charming, vulnerable, and (who are we kidding?) often mortifying true story of a girl who tried really hard to find someone to fall in love with—even when she mostly just ended up falling flat on her face. But amid the most cringeworthy setups and awkward encounters, Stephanie found God’s grace and love meeting her there in ways she never could have imagined—once she opened her eyes to see.
