Joyfully Yours by Amy Lamont Review - FREEBIE!

Title: Joyfully Yours
Author: Amy Lamont
Genre: Holiday Romance
Pages: 71
Price: FREE
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Book Synopsis:

A fun and heartwarming holiday romance.

When fate keeps throwing a handsome good Samaritan in her path, musician Faith Leary needs a little holiday magic to help her see he’s perfect for her.

A musician and a priest walk into a grocery store—singer Faith Leary thinks this is a better opening for an off-color joke than a recipe for romance, until she finds herself ogling Father Michael in the checkout line the day before Thanksgiving.

When Father Michael first steps in to bail Faith out of her financial jam, Faith thinks she’s being picked up at the grocery store. Right up until she catches sight of the black shirt and tab collar. Since not much in her life is going her way lately, it doesn’t come as much of a shock when Michael turns up at her mother’s Thanksgiving dinner. What does come as a surprise is the attraction that springs up between them. If only he weren’t a priest, he would be perfect for her.

Faith’s sister finds Father Michael attractive, too, and she’s making no bones about it. Scenes from the Thorn Birds flitting through her head, it comes as a relief to Faith to find out Michael is not exactly what he seems. It’s good news until she realizes her sister is a far better match for him than her screw-up self could ever be. But if that’s true, why does Michael insist on seeing only the good in Faith, no matter how often she falls short of her too perfect sister?


This book will immediately capture your attention with the enticement of forbidden fruit. The main character, Faith, is caught off guard by a gorgeous man. There's only one problem. He's a priest. Turns out though, he's not THAT kind of priest. Faith still doubts her ability to be with a man of the cloth. After all, she's a bar musician who makes a living with odd jobs. What priest would want that in a woman?

Joyfully Yours is a wonderful novella for the holiday season. I loved the relationship Faith has with her family and that Michael, the priest, is characterized as being HUMAN rather than just a priest. I also really enjoyed the ending. It was a heartwarming tale that I highly recommend.
