All in Good Time Book Review!

 I have a passion for reading, I always have. In a way, I think it's what brought me to have a passion for writing.  All In Good Time by Maureen Lang is an extraordinary book that I enjoyed front to back. Each flip of the page took me deeper into the story.

About the book:

"Dessa Caldwell has a dream: to open Pierson House, a refuge for former prostitutes in Denver’s roughest neighborhood. But after exhausting all charitable donations, Dessa still needs a loan, and nearly every bank in town has turned her down. Her last hope hinges on the owner of Hawkins National Bank.

Henry Hawkins has a secret: though he owns the most successful bank in town, his initial capital came from three successful raids on Wells Fargo coaches. Now he’s the most eligible bachelor in Denver, but to protect his criminal past, he’s built a fortress around his heart. Not even the boldest matchmaking mother can tempt him . . . until the day Dessa Caldwell ventures into his bank requesting a loan.

Though he’s certain her proposal is a bad investment, Henry is drawn to Dessa’s passion. But that same passion drives her to make rash decisions about Pierson House . . . and about whom she can trust. One man might hold the key to the future of her mission—but he also threatens to bring Henry’s darkest secrets to light. As the walls around their hearts begin to crumble, Henry and Dessa must choose between their plans and God’s, between safety and love. "

My thoughts:
 I honestly fell in love with the main character very early on. I think in a way I see so much of myself in Dessa and that inspires me. I think every woman can relate to her in one way or another. Dessa is strong willed and very smart. She is independent and goal oriented.  These are all great qualities in a woman and the fact that Dessa has so much passion really drives you to continue to read each page without putting the book down. 

I found the book to be a  joyful read from cover to cover. It puts you on the edge of your seat and literally forces you to want to read more. Lang did an amazing job at keeping the audience  right there in the middle of the action. We can relat to the characters and the struggles. We feel as if we are in the middle of the book. I love how the characters were weaved together for this amazing love story to blossom. The book really comes to life and  gives you a whole new experience in a way no other book could. It's truly a remarkable read!
