"All Things Work Together for Good…"

Daria Simpson is a strong devoted Christian with a rewarding career and loving Aunt Lenore, who has reared her since age eight after the death of her parents. Although content with her Christian walk, Daria is restless with being single.

As a Black educated man with a lucrative job and no children, Michael Greer would be considered a good catch if it weren’t for his "ghetto" ex-girlfriend and his quest to "hide" from God.

Fear and humor bring Daria and Michael together and sparks of a true romance begin to burn, but only after Michael surrenders his life to God.

In her debut novel, with the skill of a master storyteller, Toni V. Lee conveys realistic Christian relationship issues with applicable solutions. Ms. Lee teaches powerful lessons on Christian dating, forgiveness, and family values without making you feel as if you’re
being preached to. I loved the wisdom, directness, and hilarious humor of older when in this story. I hope Ms Lee’s next novel is a sequel.
I highly recommend this book to single Christians who are dating and to those struggling with forgiveness.

Book Description

He who finds a wife finds a good thing . . . (Proverbs 18:22) When Michael Greer barges into Daria Simpson’s home to avoid a belligerent ex-girlfriend, Daria is not impressed. Then Michael renews his relationship with Christ and begins attending her church. Suddenly, the atmosphere becomes electric, and despite her best intentions, Daria can’t get her mind off that man. Soon they’re having monster alerts that have nothing to do with ogres or dragons. Hilarious encounters, eccentric aunties, and a persistent ex-girlfriend give them plenty of action, but nothing prepares them for the arrival of a secret baby who reveals an awful secret. Will Michael walk away and fulfi ll Daria’s fearful expectations, or will their attraction mature into a godly love that lasts a lifetime?
