CFBA: My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade

Song Stuck on the Brain: Don't Take the Girl by Tim McGraw. Oddly enough, this one got stuck in my head in the middle of the night, BEFORE I started reading this book and it hasn't let go yet. Turned out to be a perfect song for this story in a lot of ways. 

This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:
My Stubborn Heart
 Bethany House Publishers; Original edition (May 1, 2012)
Becky Wade


Okay, Becky Wade, I'm telling you the same thing I tell my sister every day... Get out of my head! :) Angel and I have our neural wi-fi set on the same frequency. We put a whole new meaning to being on the same wavelength. Ms. Wade just hacked my neural wi-fi. It's the only logical explanation for why Kate and I connected so much. (Swap the skinny for the 'full figured' and I felt like Kate could be me.)

I loved Kate and Matt's story, the humor was spot on, the romance was toe curling and Matt was the hottest man I've never seen. More than that though, the story goes above and beyond in telling a story of true love. She could have ended the story with Kate and Matt happily ever after in Redbud, PA. It would have been a good happy ending - and we would all have missed out on the true romance and passion that comes in the end. A VERY happy ending. I couldn't put it down. It left me all dreamy and happy and wishing I had another Becky Wade book waiting for me. Can't wait to see what comes next.


A Sensational CBA Debut in Contemporary Romance!

This summer author Becky Wade makes her CBA debut with a fun -- and funny -- contemporary romance. Amidst the light-hearted banter and laugh-out-loud moments is a compelling spiritual journey of one woman's choice to listen to God and wait on him. Filled with humor and authentic romance, My Stubborn Heart is shaping up to be the hit of the summer.

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When Kate's grandmother asks Kate to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Yet, she discovers a different kind of project upon meeting the man hired to renovate the house. ;Matt Jarreau is attractive and clearly wounded -- hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Kate can't help but set her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.

Becky Wade is a graduate of Baylor University. As a newlywed, she lived for three years in a home overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, as well as in Australia, before returning to the States. A mom of three young children, Becky and her family now live in Dallas, Texas.
