The Indomitable Eve by Merry Farmer review



blog break description.jpg
She was a fallen woman, betrayed and neglected… 

But when Eve deLaurent is handed a second chance to be with her sister, Amelia, she must take it. All she was looking for was to be reunited with her family. The last thing she expected was for passions to flare between her and the town’s reverend, Mark Andrews. 

He only wanted to help a lost soul… 

But everything about Eve reminds Mark Andrews that he is not just a man of God, he is a man. He wants her, longs for her--but, most of all, he wants to heal the rift between Eve and Amelia. Yet some pain runs so deep that only desire can fill it. 

You’re only as strong as the loves that hold you together…

This was a good book. I really like this cover! I will say I have not read anything else in this series so I really started out of order. I liked it enough that I will have to go back and start from the beginning. I loved that the pastor basically pushed Eve to work through her feelings. The sisters went through the same things together and both needed each other more than anything else. The story was a really good one. I loved the little play thing they do at the church and how Eve makes it all work.

What I didn't like 
I did find the way the sisters are a little on the unrealistic side. I think Amelia was to high on herself, so to speak. Eve was treated far worse than she should have been. Then the whole sex before marriage thing.. Everyone knows that is a sin no matter how you look at it and I found that to be unbelievable. I think that could have been left out and still have had a strong relationship between the 2 characters. I still find this to be a 4 star book even though I didn't like those things.

I still find this to be a 4 star book though. The story was a really good one. I loved the little play thing they do at the church and how Eve makes it all work.
