Stuffed With Love: A Thanksgiving Romance Book Reviews:
ReNita A. Burgess has a God-given talent for linking you in with the characters in this wonderful Thanksgiving Romance book “Stuffed With Love.” I really enjoyed reading this narrative about Thanksgiving. ReNita makes sure that the readers will discover about the chemistry of the main characters and it seemed conceivable the way how they were connected. Victoria Patterson and Alan McKnight both needed to take a break from the nagging circumstances and from their ex-spouses. “Stuffed With Love” ministers to us about how the characters of Victoria Patterson and Alan McKnight were able to be so drawn to one another out of an awkward circumstance. While reading this narrative, I can truly mentioned it was a Thanksgiving miracle for both characters. Alan truly needed some deliverance away from his miserable ex- wife, Brenda. She didn’t want him but she didn’t want to see Alan with anyone else. She also tried to tear Alan down right in front of their children. You can tell that their Children were suffering because of the selfishness acts from their mother. Victoria was still felt betrayed by her best friend Kimberly and her ex- husband Eric. She didn’t even want to come home for Thanksgiving because of the hurt she experienced from Kimberly and Eric. The way on how Alan and Victoria met and connected, they got the chance to build their friendship in which directed them to a marvelous and passionate Thanksgiving Romance. The trials and tribulations that they both experienced with their ex- spouses, it was faith that they started to have hope in finding happiness together. Due to the facts, after their first encounters in the beginning turns into an everlasting relationship built on love and fellow feeling. Both Alan and Victoria could have been stuck in their past relationship with their ex- spouses but they allow God to lead them in the directions of falling in love again. “Stuffed With Love” is an awesome narrative not only about Thanksgiving and romance but it was also about letting go and experience the power of forgiveness. I am hoping that ReNita will be working on a sequel to this narrative to see what’s going on with Alan and Victoria. Awesome Read!
