BETWIXT TWO HEARTS reviewed by Trixi Oberembt

Authors: Amanda Tru, Cathe Swanson, Kari Trumbo, Alana Terry, Carol Moncado, and Chautona Havig

What a collection!! There are so many book tropes to enjoy in it--ie: Friends-to-love, Enemy-to-love, etc, that I think readers will find some of their favorite ones among this set. These authors are all new-to-me and that was an extra bonus, I'll be looking for books written by each one for future reading! The stories themselves are full of Christian faith playing out in imperfect people, so you'll meet characters like people you may already know living out everyday life. I felt like they could become friends in real life and I'm a huge fan of character lead stories. Some secondary ones I liked over others, but it just made for a well-rounded cast of characters.
Lastly, I've never read books based around a Christian online match-making service (not a dating site), so it was extra fun to meet the couples who were matched through it and see their love story being played out! There's so much to adore about each story and I'm sure readers will find this a refreshing faith-filled set of romantic fiction that satisfies both heart and soul.
