Love and the Silver Lining | Book Review


This disaster may be just what she needed.

Darcy Malone's dreams of mission work are dashed on the eve of fulfilling them: The Guatemalan school she was going to teach at has closed, and she's already quit her job and given up her apartment. Stuck in her worst-case scenario, Darcy accepts an unexpected offer to move in with Bryson Katsaros's little sister, despite the years of distrust between her and Bryson, the lead singer in her best friend Cameron's band. But as she meets those close to Bryson, Darcy quickly discovers there is more to him than just his bad-boy persona.

Needing to find a purpose for all her sudden free time, Darcy jumps at the chance to care for and train a group of unruly dogs, with the aim of finding each a home before their bereaved owner returns them to animal control. But it's Darcy herself who will encounter a surprising rescue in the form of love, forgiveness, and learning to let go.

"This lovely second installment of Gray's State of Grace series continues the story of longtime friends Darcy, Bryson, and Cameron. . . . Gray delivers a beautiful illustration of the power found in the courage to forgive and move on despite disappointment and regret. Those who enjoy contemporary inspirational romances should take a look."--Publishers Weekly

Another gem from Tammy L. Gray and her State of Grace series!

On the brink of fulfilling her dreams of and purpose for mission work, Darcy Malone's life takes an unexpected turn, and she must adapt her plan. A pack of dogs, a bad-boy singer (with more depth than she knew, perhaps), and a whole of emotion and soul-searching manage to weave their way into Darcy's altered plan.

Love and the Silver Lining is an absolutely splendid read. Page after page feels relatable as Darcy's frustrations and questions come out, and of course, dogs always make for charming side characters. The romance feels natural amidst all the other story elements, helping to tie everything together.

Easily put, I loved reading Love and the Silver Lining and wholeheartedly recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
