Spatzle Speaks: Hoping for Joy (Book Review)

Reading Time: 2 minutes

51sbsfx7llPrism Book Group has released another book in their “Love is…” series of romances based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.  Hoping for Joy by Penelope Marzec is about love always hoping.

Hannah isn’t your typical blushing bride-to-be. She’s beginning to wonder whether her fiance will ever marry her. He’s preoccupied with helping his father care for his niece, Joy and keeping Joy’s mother, his sister, out of jail as she repeatedly gets in trouble with her addictions.

While Hannah understands the challenges he’s facing, she’s feeling a tad neglected and as if she’s not important to him. He’s not even a believer.

Logan is overwhelmed with responsibilities and really doesn’t think of his fiancee all that much until she’s attacked and almost killed by his sister during a robbery. But how can he balance the needs of Hannah with those of a little girl, a lost sister and a father who’s health is failing. How can he salvage his relationship with Hannah in the midst of all that?

This is a story of lost hopes and dreams giving birth to new ones and as a dog, I adore children so little Joy was my favorite part. That and she has the same name as someone in my house! A romantic suspense that will warm your heart. I give it five bones, because I’m a dog and I don’t do stars.

  1. I won Root Beer & Roadblocks. I finished reading it the other day & it was one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It touched me and I cried in several places. Susan has definitely been added to my favorite authors list. Thank you so much for the book. I’m so glad its a paperback. Its a keeper and definitely going in a “pride of place” on my bookshelves. If you haven’t read the book please do. Its one that will stay with you for a long time. Its a wonderful heart-warming story. I went to the Pelican book site and tried to leave a review but was unable to find the review area.

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed Johnny’s story! On my blog here, my dog does reviews and he even reviewed the book! (I have a silly dog but he loves me). Thank you for posting on Amazon especially. You definitely made my day. ((Hugs!))
