Turnabout's Fair Play: A Review

When Maureen O' Connor decides to set up her grandson Jamie with Flannery, the granddaughter of the handsome visitor at her church, she never expects to find love for herself. Jamie and Flannery know their grandparents are right for each other, so they endure hanging out to throw the elderly couple together. Through a series of mishaps trying to set each other, the four characters find their own matches.

I enjoyed this book. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the first two books and gotten to know the characters better.
I like the surprise connection between Flannery and Jamie, their shared secret interest. I didn't like the "big" conflict that seemingly tears them apart for a bit---it seemed over-dramatic for a response on Flannery's part. 

I loved Maureen and Kirby and found their romance at an old age to be sweet and a nice addition to the typical romance. Although I don't see myself reading a romance novel about two characters in their 80s, I enjoyed it as a secondary plot.

So, while the book didn't cause me to think deeply, I would recommend it (although I would read the first two first) to fans of Christian fiction looking for a relaxing summer read.

I received this book in exchange for my thoughts. My opinions are my own.
