Aloha Rose by Lisa Cox Carter
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I was so interested in this book.
I’m a sucker for a good story about adoption or children.
To be honest—I’m a sap and I enjoy pretty much anything that tugs at the heart strings.
I really looked forward to and wanted to enjoy this story. It seemed to have everything I was looking for in a great story.
However, I am going to admit that I couldn’t bring myself to finish this book. The description sounds fantastic and I've loved every other book that I've read in the Quilts of Love series. This one just wasn't a hit for me.
I don’t always read Christian literature but when I do, I expect a higher standard. I was rather surprised to see the acronym “snafu” and the term “flipping” and “bimbo” used in the Christian genre. I was a big turn off to me to the point that I had to walk away from even finishing. Had this not been a Christian book I would have been able to overlook but I feel that it was highly inappropriate for the genre.
