UNEXPECTED KISS by Regina Tittel

Carli Williams has a past she's not proud of but determines to make a fresh start for herself. A start that includes not getting involved with men and finding the father she's never known, which leads her into an adventure she may not be ready for. Ethan Durham is working on his engineering degree and waiting for the Lord to show him the woman he's meant to be with. Little does he know that the woman he picked for the photo reenactment of the WWII kissing photo just might be her. But one things for sure, he won't get the chance to find out if he can't stop the attempts made on her life.

This was a great installment to The Ozark Durham Series. It had lots of mystery and surprises along the way as you try to figure out, with Ethan and Carli, the answers to several contemplative questions. I would love to read Carli's brother's story! (hint, hint)! Although this didn't have as much romantic tension as Abandoned Hearts, the chemistry between Ethan and Carli was still great. Ethan, at times, reminded me of his father, which was fun. I was hoping to see Ann and Jacob again but they were only mentioned a few times. Unconditional love and forgiveness was the underlying message which I thought the author did really well. One line that I absolutely loved and highlighted in my Kindle was "...God doesn't bless us to raise our standard of living; He blesses us to raise our standard of giving." That is GREAT truth to remember! If you're looking for a fun story filled with mystery and sweet romance, then I recommend you pick up Unexpected Kiss. Now I am anxiously awaiting "Coveted Bride"!

I've been anxious to read what you thought of this one. From this area, I seem to get better reviews on Unexpected Kiss, but I have to say, Abandoned Hearts is my favorite and I'm glad it's yours.
Unexpected Kiss was written to reach those raised w/o fathers in hopes to help them understand their heavenly father.

Also, just as a note, my husband is the man on each cover of my books and will be on the future ones as well. On Unexpected Kiss, I'm the one he's kissing, but I'm wearing a wig!

Thanks for your reviews,Sherry, you have a beautiful blog!
