Review of Delivered with Love

Delivered with Love by Sherry Kyle is the story of a woman, whose adventure of finding who she is starts with one love letter. Claire James has been struggling for some time now. Her mother died after battling cancer, her sister's husband is a drunk who takes her money, she's just lost her job, and all she has left is her mom's old '72 VW bug. The car contains a mysterious old letter addressed to her mother, which makes Claire determined to find the sender. So determined, in fact, that she moves everything she has to the return address on the envelope, Capitola. Once she arrives, Claire begins to find out who she really is, but her employer and landlord, a man named Michael, seems to be hiding something from her. Joined by a spunky elderly woman, a handsome police officer with some cooking skills, and a new friend she meets on her journey to Capitola, Claire's life is forever changed.

This story is really heartwarming. The "coincidences" in this book shows the awesome power of God to be able to work things out, even though we may not see it. Claire's friends are an interesting bunch, but I love the warmth of the relationships. It was also interesting to follow Claire's journey of finding who she really was. The character of Blake, the police officer, is sweet and charming. 

The man in this book named Michael is a character who has his own share of guilt and pain from a huge mistake from his past. Though this book does not go into details or anything, it is clear he broke his marriage vows.

All in all, I rate this book four out of five stars. It will be released in April 2011.
