A Billion Reasons Why

A Billion Reasons Why
By Kristin Billerbeck

About the book:
Katie McKenna leads a perfect life. Or so she thinks. She has a fulfilling job, a cute apartment, and a wedding to plan with her soon-to-be fiance, Dexter.

She can think of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter…but nowhere on that list is love.

And then in walks Luc DeForges, her bold, breathtaking ex-boyfriend. Only now he's a millionaire. And he wants her to go home to New Orleans to sing for her childhood friend's wedding. As his date.

But Katie made up her mind about Luc eight years ago, when she fled their hometown after a very public breakup. Yet there's a magnetism between them she can't deny.

Katie thought her predictable relationship with Dexter would be the bedrock of a lasting, Christian marriage. But what if there's more? What if God's desire for her is a heart full of life? And what if that's what Luc has offered all along?

My Review:
I was captivated by this book and every time I closed it I had a smile on my face. The characters are well developed and multi-faceted, just when you think you have one of them pegged they surprise you! Luc seems a little arrogant but really I think he just goes after what he wants and Katie struggles to stifle her passion to be proper but blossoms as she went along.

The entire book asks ‘do you follow your heart or follow your mind’. Only you can decide if Katie made the right decision but I loved reading the book with all the way it drew in every sense as Kristin Billerbeck described New Orleans, Katie’s inner thoughts, and the throw back to the forties.

Favorite Line:

“God didn’t paint you with a brushstroke of safety, Katie. He brought out the fiery colors for you.”
