Waiting on Love - Leah Attwood. A review by Kathy Smail

Is it ever too late to do the right thing? 

Tanya Reeves dreamed of happily-ever-afters and a family that included a husband and children, but life rarely turns out as planned, which she discovered the hard way when she got pregnant in high school. For seven years, she has raised her daughter without a father, however, the dream never died. 

Scott Lamar never meant to abandon his daughter and pregnant girlfriend, but life happened, and college provided a means of escape. All that changed when he found faith in God, and now he wants to make up for his past mistakes. He concocts a plan that sounds crazy to most, but he pushes forward, determined to be a part of his daughter’s life. 

Waiting on Love is a delightful story about love that needed time, forgiveness and redemption to flourish. The question of doing 'the right thing' was relative to the main characters and to a lesser extent at least one of the supporting characters as well.
I felt that this story could have had a little more length to it but as it is a 'Christmas' novella supporting other books in Atwood's Modern Convenience series, I can live with it. I will be making a note to read more of her books however. I assume that as this book is 
As I don't really read too much about a book and author before I write a review I didn't think that I had read anything by Atwood but found that she has written several books in collections that I have including this one Christmas Blessings which is currently available for pre-order for $1.31(A$) and will be released 30th October 2016. Other authors in this upcoming collection include Belle Calhoune, JoAnn Durgin, Heather Gray, Angel Moore, Melissa Tagg and Alexa Verde.

I’ve pre-ordered the Christmas Blessing collection so will enjoy that in a month or so.

  1. Collections of novellas are becoming popular, aren't they? ;)

    I've read a few of Leah Atwood's stories and they're always good. Thanks for the review.

  2. I'm looking forward to the Christmas Blessings collection and yours too!

    I've got lots of collections and I love getting to know new authors but I find it hard to track. That's the bit I miss when reading ebooks, I can't line books up as easily as I did on a shelf!

  3. Kathy, thanks for sharing your review with us :)
