STONE OF DESTINY by Mary L. Ball


Taylor Harrison pours everything into Mugful's Beverage Company, where she works as CEO. When Granny Kay has a bad fall she asks Taylor to return home to oversee some house renovations as well as search for a treasured family heirloom; the sapphire ring that has been missing for fifty years. Knowing it means a lot to Granny Kay, she reluctantly decides to cash-in her unused vacation time to come help. Brent Roberts is in charge of the renovations and when he and Taylor first meet, well, things get off to a bad start. But Brent's kind and gentle ways get Taylor's attention. The more they see each other, the more comfortable they become. Brent would like a relationship with Taylor and though Taylor is interested, she is only focused on getting things completed for Granny Kay and getting back to her life and her job. Finding the ring, however, just might change everything.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Stone of Destiny. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters, except I have to admit that I didn't really like Taylor very much at first. She did grow on me though as the story went along. Brent was a terrific guy. A gentleman who expressed kindness is a tangible way and knew how to wait on the Lord. I loved Granny Kay. Everyone needs someone like her in their life. She always tried to point Taylor to the Lord. The relationship between Brent and Taylor is tender but definitely had some tension to it. The idea of finding what's important in life was well done. The Lord uses different things to get a persons attention and you see that done in Taylor's life. If you like hunting for a lost ring, renovating an old house and finding out what's really important in life, then you would enjoy Stone of Destiny.

Mary is an awesome writer. I've enjoyed two of her books so far.

Sherry Kuhn said...

That's great Victoria! I enjoyed both books as well. I think I have at least one of your books but haven't had a chance to read it.

I'm so glad you stopped by.

I enjoy Mary's writing so much. She brings in characters you want to follow, and her books aren't easy to put down. She weaves her Christian faith throughout and there's no doubt the reader will know the Lord leads in her craft.
STONE of DESTINY is an excellent read with many suspenseful moments.
