DESTINY'S DREAM by Delia Latham
While Destiny May is attending her mother's funeral, Clay Gallagher sits down beside her. Destiny wonders who he is because she doesn't recognize him. When she finally figures out that he's at the wrong funeral she asks him to help her escape from all the family greetings that go on after a funeral. Clay whisks her away and makes her laugh and it doesn't hurt that he's handsome as all get-out! Clay finds Destiny very attractive and interesting. He's never met anyone quite like her. She is determined to open a Christian dating service which seems like a big waste of time and money to Clay. But when Destiny receives a threatening phone call Clay steps in to be her personal guard and keep her safe. The question is can he guard his heart?
The was an enjoyable story. I liked that it was really like having two stories in one. Destiny was an interesting character. It seemed like she and Clay fit together well. I had kind of a hard time liking Destiny's sister though. She seemed a bit harsh to me. I enjoyed the mystery surrounding who was threatening Destiny and you don't find out until very near the end who it was. I really enjoyed CJ (Clay's brother). He was a neat character. The whole Christian Dating Service idea was an interesting concept. I thought this author did a great job with the ending.
