A Garden For Sarah

acfw Finalist 2005

Sparks fly when Sarah meets Rick at Fairview’s first landscaping outlet.

In a tank top and khaki shorts, with muscles rippling, it’s easy to see why female customers are flocking for Rick’s attention.

Sarah’s mother pushes her to give this more than attractive gardener a little encouragement, which is exactly why Sarah isn’t the least bit interested. She has to set her well-meaning, but meddlesome, mother straight. “I am not interested in a dirty, sweaty gardener.”

Of course, Rick chooses that moment to appear behind Sarah. Is he insulted by her comments? If only she could explain, but how does one explain a lifetime of embarrassing, though comedic, moments with an interfering mother?

When Rick asks Sarah out, she has no choice but to accept. According to Rick, it’s the only way she can prove she has nothing against dirty, sweaty gardeners everywhere.

Sarah agrees, and over the next few days, Rick does everything he can to sweep her off her feet. From potted plants, a hammock for her backyard, and hours on his knees planting flowers in her garden, Rick has mounted an offensive for Sarah’s heart. Not only is he respectful to her parents, but his devotion to the Lord is an inspiration.

Sarah wants to let go and follow her heart, but she’s experienced far too much deception at the hands of men who think they know best. Why does she get the feeling Rick is hiding something?

A Garden for Sarah is a Christian fiction romance of approximately one hundred eighty-six print pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misunderstandings lead to self realizations, September 14, 2013
By Linda Elliott – This review is from: A Garden for Sarah (Kindle Edition)
I always enjoy a quick and easy read, and this book is that. The characters are well developed and believable. The two main people Rick and Sarah, both have issues, just like we all do. Both handle problems and honesty in perhaps the wrong way, so much like most of us. However, they get through it, given a bit of time and helpful nudges from caring friends. I haven’t read this author before, but do look forward to reading more of her work.

Wonderful believable Christian characters. Felicia has the ability to present her characters as true Christians with a sexual innuendo that makes them appear true to life. Great read.

I know a book is going to be good when the first paragraph catches my attention and this book did that from the first paragraph to the last. It made me laugh, smile a lot and sweet romance mixed with strong faith. Already looking for more books by this author, who is new to me and praises to her.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant Christian love story, August 9, 2014
By Jenny – This review is from: A Garden for Sarah (Kindle Edition)
A great easy read, a love story for any age group. The fact that it has religious values Rick didn’t seam overly fussed that he was deceitful and lies through his relationship with Sarah but no one is perfect, it shows a true human side and not perfection which nobody is. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
