Summary

When Alex O Donnell's world falls apart, she finds it hard to imagine that a door to a new world will open.  Leaving everything she knows behind, Alex moves from her Baltimore apartment to a villa in Italy where she discovers the inherited vineyard she never knew existed and a life of possibilities beyond her hopes and dreams.   Arriving at the villa, Alex is taken aback by the animosity and scorn of the vineyard's co-owner, Nicolas Giordano.  Resentful of Alex's sudden appearance, Nicolas struggles to maintain his control over his business and his feelings for his new partner. The discovery of a journal from World War II becomes the tie that binds Alex and Nicolas as they work to secure their future while putting together the pieces of a puzzle from the past.  Unlock the hidden secrets among the Whispering Vines.

    God longs to restore fractured relationships, broken souls, and divided churches—and He wants to use imperfect people to do it.

Wiersbe’s Be Restored commentary, this eight-week study includes engaging questions and practical applications that will help you connect God’s Word with your life.

    Ryan McKinley has tried to move on from his ex-wife, Abby. He’s sulked, he’s gotten angry, and ultimately he bought her dream house. Big mistake.

Her parents still think they’re married and now Ryan knows it too. It’s just a one-week road trip with the man who broke her heart. What could possibly go wrong?

    “Save the Date is a sweet romance filled with laugh-out-loud moments. Jones breathes new life into the clichéd ‘relationship of convenience’ plot with characters to root for.” —RT Book Reviews 
    You are cordially invited to the wedding of the year with the most unlikely bride and groom. Save the date . . . and say your prayers. 
    When funding for Lucy's non-profit job is pulled, she is determined to find out why. Enter Alex Sinclair, former professional football star and heir to Sinclair Enterprises—the primary donor to Lucy's non-profit organization. 
    Both Lucy and Alex have something the other desperately wants. 
    Alex has it all . . . except for the votes he needs to win his bid for Congress. Despite their mutual dislike, Alex makes Lucy a proposition: pose as his fiancée in return for the money she desperately needs. Bound to a man who isn't quite what he seems, Lucy finds her heart—and her future—on the line. 
    Save the Date is a spunky romance that will have readers laughing out loud as this dubious pair try to save their careers, their dreams . . . and maybe even a date.
