Faith + Romance

I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to romance and religion, I tend to think of the two as mashed potatoes and chocolate — fine on their own, but preferring to keep them separate from each other. Because of that, I found myself steering clear of inspirational romances, under the impression that the romance would be diluted and overshadowed with talks of God and religious virtues. Silly, I know, but then it dawned on me that I couldn’t truly consider myself a romance lover unless I at least gave every category a chance.

Enter Souvenirs by Barbara Phinney, an inspirational romantic suspense and my first foray into the “inspy” sub-genre. You can read my RT review below, but in terms of the inspirational genre, let me just say: if all inspys are as well-written and filled with awesome character chemistry as Phinney’s books, then I’ll be seeing a lot more of them in my future! Harlequin has multiple faith-based categories — Steeple Hill Café, Love Inspired, Love Inspired Historical, Love Inspired Suspense, plus more —  so there’s an abundance for me to choose from. Glancing through them, I can’t help but notice the great covers, and everyone knows that a standout cover only makes books that much more enticing… Am I right??
