Manila Marriage App: Passport to Romance by Jan Elder
Shay Callahan has applied for the wife of a missionary in the Philippines. That is a long way from Maryland, but she needs to get away. When her marriage application is selected, she is ready for a vacation at someone else's expense.
Dr. Timothy Flynn is the church history professor and academic dean at Pacific Rim Theological Seminary. Timothy has no experience with women. Why would he submit a marriage app to find a wife? Will Shay be a good fit for him?
These two characters are fun, flirty, and full of life. Timothy expects Shay to be demure, a perfect missionary wife. Shay expects Timothy to be stodgy and proper. Will they be able to get past their misconceptions and get to know each other before the time is up and Shay heads back to Maryland?
Shay finds more than she bargained for in the Philippines, including finding her way back to a relationship with God. Where had He been all this time? Right there with her, waiting for her to seek Him. Pick up this great book today to find love, laughter, and fun. I laughed, cried, groaned, and cheered with Shay and Timothy as they got to know each other. The humor and the real to life experiences had me turning the pages. I didn't want this story to end. Can't wait to read more by this author!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
