CFBA: Dating Dining and Desperation

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Dating, Dining, and Desperation
B&H Books (March 1, 2014)
Melody Carlson


Over the years, Melody Carlson has worn many hats, from pre-school teacher to youth counselor to political activist to senior editor. But most of all, she loves to write! Currently she freelances from her home. In the past eight years, she has published over ninety books for children, teens, and adults--with sales totaling more than two million and many titles appearing on the ECPA Bestsellers List. Several of her books have been finalists for, and winners of, various writing awards.

She has two grown sons and lives in Central Oregon with her husband and chocolate lab retriever. They enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping and biking in the beautiful Cascade Mountains.


Daphne Ballinger has learned to accept her deceased, eccentric aunt’s strange request that she marry in order to inherit her estate, along with taking over her aunt’s hometown paper’s advice column. But knowing and accepting that God’s will be done becomes harder when a new neighbor, a divorced socialite, learns of Daphne’s predicament and takes on the task of finding her the perfect man, even if it includes speed dating. When God does open Daphne’s heart, it is instead to take in a young girl left parentless and in the care of her dying grandmother. It may be a temporary arrangement until the girl’s uncle returns from the Marines, but God uses Daphne to speak His heavenly love and protection into the life of the child -- whom Daphne soon discovers has a very handsome and single uncle.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Dating, Dining, and Desperation, go HERE.

This is the 2nd book in the Dear Daphne series, and this book continues where the first left off.  While it's best to read both books, I'm sure you'd do fine just diving into Dating, Dining, and Desperation!

Melody Carlson writes another charming winner that will have you laughing one minute and crying the next.  Daphne is on edge, having to find someone to marry within a year in order to keep the house her aunt has willed to her.....and finding someone isn't all that easy.

This is a fun read, but beware, once you begin you may not want to put it down...and the end will leave you hanging, waiting for the next book in the series....which for the time being will be an Ebook.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
