The House that Love Built: A Review


Brooke still mourns the death of her beloved husband. Owen has moved to her small town to spite his ex-wife who always dreamed of living there. Will they find healing in each other's arms?

It's hard to summarize this book because while it's mainly about Brooke and Owen, there are several side characters who get chapters throughout the book. Brooke's mom gets a second chance at love. Owen's uncle moves to town. And, probably my favorite is Hunter, the young man with a horrible past who finds a future for himself while he helps remodel Owen's house that holds a secret from the past.

The characters were all complex and deserving a book of their own, so some of the book felt rushed because there were so many stories and layers to each character. Some major events were glossed over because there was so much to cover. Because I loved the characters so much, I wish this had been stretched out to two books or for Hunter to get his own book.

Overall, I enjoyed this book full of great characters. Fans of contemporary Christian fiction will enjoy this one.

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