Fair Game

"Fair Game" by Carol Cox

This was the second book but not really a series. It had a few of the same characters but the main characters were different. I actually liked this book better than the first one. The book is about a girl who moves to Chicago to find her father and some adventure. She ends up finding romance and God's calling on her life. This one was a little less predictable and a little more intriguing. I enjoyed how the main character persevered despite some difficult circumstances. A little more than half way through the book I got hooked and couldn't put it down. A part of the book that made me think was when a man was people watching and saw a young couple that looked so happy strolling along. Then he said, "But if they hadn't made their peace with God, that happiness would only be temporary. Lord, draw them to Yourself. Let their joy be eternal and not based on the here and now." He prayed for perfect strangers, he saw their need for God, that their earthly joy would soon disappear. I want to be the kind of person who sees with God's eyes and prays for all those who need His lasting joy.
