Win a KitchenAid Mixer in Susan May Warren’s Hawaiian Chef Showdown!

Susan May Warren's newest book in the Christiansen family series is out!  This novel, When I Fall in Love, is about Grace's story.  Read below to find out about this latest story.

About the book: 
Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she'd vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled-or maybe yanked-away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.
Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen. Which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.
Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace's faith will face its toughest test yet.

My Review:
This story was full of adventure for the homebody sister, Grace Christiansen.  I loved that the story was in the fun state of Hawaii and included a cooking class and competition.  It definitely added to the storyline.  The relationship dynamic between Grace and Max kept the story exciting all the way to the end.  Several of the characters are dealing with "baggage" that they have lugged throughout their lives thinking that it was something they could never let go of.  Life can be full of things we hang onto thinking we don't have the power to let go.  Of course, the problem is that the power to let go of the things that beset us doesn't come from us but from God.  Each of these characters struggle through how to give their baggage over to God and begin to trust Him with their lives.  Susan May Warren weaves together a beautiful story of how trusting God with your life is really the only way to truly live.  If you're looking for a fun new series, pick up the Christiansen family.
