Covenant Communications, 2014. 194 pages. Romance.
When Lia Carswel flees a lucrative Manhattan art career, she determines to give up painting forever. Working in a diner and trying to support her sister through nursing school by caring for her young niece, Lia is suddenly given a commission for a series of paintings that will make all their financial troubles disappear. But is she willing to go back to a profession that hurt her so badly?
This is a fun book by Jacobson. I found it interesting that, while the book is published by an LDS book publisher, the characters are not LDS and there is no mention of the Mormon church anywhere. The characters are intriguing and she puts just enough mystery into Lia's flight from Manhattan to keep you reading to find out what really happened. This was a nice light read, something you'll enjoy on a Saturday afternoon, wrapped in a warm blanket and sipping a cup of hot chocolate.
