More than Grace
ISBN # 1-58314-551-6
Dr. Gregory Dixon contemplates leaving his neurosurgeon position at Robinson Memorial in DC after he becomes attracted to his temporary stint at prestigious New Yorks Lenox Hill Hospital. Although his wife, Jessica Grace accepts whatever decisions he makes, she hopes that these changes in Gregorys career will not affect their marriage. She misses the time they once had together.
Although Gregs love for Jessica has grown stronger, their best friends, Derrick and Sherri Madison have weakened. Derrick has been pushing Sherri to have another child, a son, while negating their daughter, Dee. When Derrick pushes Sherri to leave their home and live with the Dixons tensions mount between the two best friends. Grace wonders if Sherri has an eye for Gregory.
Bellamy ends the Grace trilogy with another sweet story. She creates loveable couples that readers want to root for.
However, too many subplots, back-story, passive voice, close attention to unimportant details takes away from the beauty and romance in this novel. And although romances have happy endings, too many loose ends wrap up too coincidentally at the end. Note this novel has various sensual scenes that may distract Christian readers from the illumination her novel providesGods providence manifested in fatherhood. Nonetheless, Bellamys fans will enjoy this spicy and sweet alternative to secular romance. (April, 256 pp, $14.00)
