Review: A Song to Call Ours by Merrillee Whren

A Song to Call OursI really enjoyed this contemporary romance novel. The fourth story in the Front Porch Promises series, A Song to Call Ours also stands alone nicely. The characters were dynamic and full of heart, questioning how to know when a leading was from God or from their own desires.

Amanda frustrated me at times with her spur of the moment decisions and resistance to Mitch. However, she was still a character that I liked and hoped the best for. I thought Mitch was a great guy and empathized with him all throughout the book. And, my goodness, there was one point in the story that the author perfectly captured the heart wrenching feelings that Mitch was experiencing, and I could feel it myself, too. So moving!

I’ve enjoyed this entire series and can recommend each of the stories to fans of contemporary romance.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
