Stand in Groom by Kaye Dacus

Stand In Groom, Kaye Dacus' recent release, is an excellent book. I highly recommend it after you'd had a stressful day and want to get away. One thing that really stands out in my mind about the book is that Kaye's heroine is a beautiful, full-figured, size 18 woman. Kaye shows us that a size 18 woman is as beautiful as size 4 woman. The hero, who works out several times a week and is in good shape falls for this shapely woman. This book also speaks to us of what God can do to heal relationships and past hurts. I won't go into detail other than to say that the heroine was hurt badly years ago and has never been able to forgive and let it go. God works everything out in HIS timing. Kaye does an excellent job of showing how God comes through and answers prayers. Our hero and heroine face many obstacles, but healing and a happy end is found for all. This was one of those books that I could not put down. Kaye did an excellent job of portraying her characters so well that we come to know them as friends and can't wait to see what happens next. So, make a bee line for your Christian bookstore and pick it up. You won't be disappointed!
