Priceless (She’s Worth Fighting For: A Novel)

Title:  Priceless (She’s Worth Fighting For: A Novel)
Author:  Joel & Luke Smallbone

My rating is 5 stars.
Hold onto your heart when you begin reading this story because it really is a riveting novel!  What starts with a couple leaving their daughter with a mother-in-law so they can have some time together becomes a tale of lives forever changed!  The main male character is named James and while not a rich man by any means, has a good marriage with a loving wife along with an adoring daughter.  James’ life takes a tragic turn that begins his descent into places of wrongdoing, committing acts that he never thought he would.
While his descent is an easy slippery slope, climbing back out and becoming the father his young daughter needs is another matter altogether.  James feels if he can just make one huge score with a large payoff, his life will at least become more stable and he can have his daughter back with him full time.  What he didn’t anticipate in this decision was that again his life would become entangled with other people and perhaps he would fall in love again.
My understanding is this novel is due to become a movie released October 14th of this year.  The ending is a mixture of astonishment and amazement at least as far as this reviewer/reader is concerned.  Also, learning who these young men are who wrote the story with Nancy Rue I think will touch people as well. The tale is very moving and it has suspense, romance, tragedy, and forgiveness just to name a few themes.  This is a very well written and touching book one that I hope many will read!

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…
