As with most of the Love Finds You series, this was a re-read for me. The first time I read it, I noted that I found it "heartwarming and touching", leading me to believe that I would have rated it 4 stars. The fact that the book is heartwarming and touching hasn't changed this time around, but what has changed is my perception of the book.
First of all, I found Vance's attitude very annoying. He wasn't much better than the jerk of a Phys Ed teacher, Kent! Meg may have overstepped her bounds some, but it was with the best interests of his child at heart! I also really didn't care for how he couldn't let his deceased wife Angie go, even though he was fully aware that he was falling in love with Meg.
Meg was a very kind and caring individual, though a bit naïve at times, especially when it comes to her mother and Kent himself. I found I could really identify with her! I liked how she made it a point to say at one point that she didn't want to take Angie's place in Vance and Cammy's hearts, she wanted her own unique place in their hearts because she was a different person than Angie was.
The religious aspect wasn't preachy in this story, more like woven into the daily lives of the characters, as if to say that it was a natural thing to each of them. I especially liked how Meg found her way back to her religious roots in this story!
Overall, the book was interesting enough to read once or twice, but I'm not sure it would reach comfort read status for me.
