"God's curse or God's gifts? An enjoyable inspirational romantic comedy"

This Thanksgiving would be different for ER Nurse Sunny Elders as it is the first since the death of both her parents from cancer. She is joining her sister's family on this cruise with the promise to watch the children with hopes they can restore their relationships after the stress of grief. Little did she expect to literally bump into Texas rancher Dan Jarrett. Was he destined to be just a friend-in-need or her soul mate?

Dan's widowed mother married after a whirlwind courtship on a cruise ship and at the insistence of her new husband, they were celebrating the family holiday on a cruise hoping to share the joy they experienced when they met a month ago. Dan does not believe in love-at-first-sight; so does not trust his stepfather. He has not been shy in showing his displeasure. Adding to his frustration his match-making sister and the accident prone Sunny. He is sure it is God's curse, not God's gifts he is experiencing this Thanksgiving.

Dan's growly but affable personality looses its edge when combined with Sunny's hilarious tendency to have unusual things happen to her. You will find this a naturally entertaining part of this story and not overwhelming slapstick. IT HAD TO BE YOU is a G-rated romantic comedy that provides an enjoyable reading experience. As with most inspirational romances, there is a definite Christian message to be found while reading, but it is presented in a manner that does not detract from the tale of finding unexpected love.
