Award-winning Publishers Weekly Best-selling Author

Love and Other Mistakes By Jessica Kate

Natalie Groves had big dreams. Dreams that were shattered when her father was diagnosed with cancer and her fiancé left town without an explanation. Her world came crashing down. Seven years later, her ex, Jeremy “Jem” Walters, is back and needs her help—to take care of his infant son. What? She’s left stunned but has no other choice. She needs a job and her parents are in desperate financial trouble.

An opportunity of a lifetime soon arrives on her doorstep—an internship to land her dream job or at least that’s what she thinks. She moves into a schedule with balancing both responsibilities and finds herself struggling. To top it off, her feelings for Jem start to resurface.

Once again, her world begins to crumble and she’s left wondering where God is. Can both Nat and Jem learn to forgive and trust God with all the rest?

Love and Other Mistakes is this author’s debut and it’s amazing! It grabbed my attention from the beginning and didn’t let go. I loved the twists and turns. They kept me turning the pages to see how everything unfolded.

It’s an amazing story of love, forgiveness, and redemption.

The characters are delightful even though there were times when I wanted to throttle all of them! I loved their quirks and sassy attitudes. Added charm to the mix.

I love this author’s voice. It’s fresh, witty, and captivating. Her use of imagery throughout helps me to picture every scene. Can’t wait to read more of her books.

I give Love and Other Mistakes five M&Ms (you’ll have to read the book to know why!). This tale will delight the reader.

**I received a NetGalley e-copy of this book by the author and Thomas Nelson for my honest opinion.

Jessica’s Bio:

Australian author Jessica Kate writes inspirational romances that are fun, sassy and real. Jess is a screenwriting groupie, co-host of the StoryNerds vlog and podcasts, and her favorite place to be – apart from Mum and Dad’s back deck – is a theme park.

She’s traveled North America and Australia, and samples her favorite pasta wherever she goes – but the best (so far) is still the place around the corner from her corporate day job as a training developer.

She loves watching sit-coms with her housemates and being a leader in a new church plant.
