Title:  Now and Always Yours

My rating is 5 stars.
In Now and Always Yours, we continue to follow Shannon and Greg in their new lives now that Greg has been paroled.  There is romance in the book and really deep meaningful conversations as various characters talked out their issues, both past and present.  Shannon is now married and has her niece and nephew living with her as well as her own two children.  Phillip is Shannon’s husband who shows Christ like unconditional love and an abundance of patience with teenagers and toddlers in the same house.
Now Greg is starting life all over and not sure what the future holds.  His dream of being paroled came early and the newness of being free has an adjustment period.  Shannon’s receptionist and close friend meets Greg and sparks fly!  Celia was raised in a home with two parents and realizes it wasn’t normal or functional the way her father verbally abused and emotionally withheld love from his daughter.
Throughout the book I kept realizing how the family takes time to be honest and talk through issues.  The family takes time to eat together, share about their days and prayer together in the evenings.  I also liked how when Greg realizes he likes Celia, he eventually talks to her about her own spiritual walk and reassures her that his love is not determined by her answer.  There is wisdom exhibited in the book when two adults realize they are emotionally becoming close and plan to marry, but never cross the line before the marriage vows.
Along with Lawfully and Legally Yours readers will sense the great importance placed on the family and friend relationships throughout the tale.  Lest we think that a work of fiction cannot become reality such as family time together, working through problems, showing love for one another, etc., we need to remember in the Bible Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
Look and lean on Jesus, read the Word, pray and watch God do what only He can do!  Enjoy the books too!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
