Double Shot by Erynn Mangum

I wish every book I read was like this one. Double Shot by Erynn Mangum is the third in her Maya Davis series and this time we follow Maya and Jack all the way up to their wedding and of course there are some bumps along the way. Erynn has a way of bringing her characters right into the heart of the reader and they feel so real that I almost want to talk to them while I'm reading. Laughter abounds in this series and if you're a fan of Kristin Billerbeck or Jenny B Jones then you need to discover Erynn Mangum. LOVE this series!

Maya's character continues on her quest to "be the light" to those around her and does so without being preachy, her lifestyle is what sparks the interest of her coworkers and ends up having them visit her church and Bible study. This is something that Christians can learn from, we don't always need to have all the answers or need to be pushy pushy pushy about our faith. Sometimes people see in us what they're supposed to. I appreciated this about Erynn's characters.

Hunting with Maya for the right dress, right caterers, right florist and right venue was also fun and brought back good memories of that time in my own life.

Thanks Erynn, for this CLEAN READ! Can't wait to read more of your books!

From the back cover:

Can coffee and chocolate make everything better? It's worth a shot.

Now that Maya Davis is engaged to her longime friend and sweetheart, Jack, there should be no more worrying about the future, no more questioning God. Everything should be perfect, right? Actually, it's just the opposite: Things are complicated. Where are they going to live? What kind of wedding do they want?

And when Jack is offered a once-in-a-lifetime job in Seattle, things begin to unravel even more. Can Maya trust that God is in control even when things seem to be a disastrous mess?
