Sara Reynolds has finally gotten her life back on track with God. Even though she turned her back on her serial dating past, she’s still working on being single and content. So, it’s a good thing Adam is obnoxious, even if he is the first guy to catch her eye in about a year.
Adam Lassiter knows all about Sara’s sordid history with men. That alone ought to eliminate her as someone he’d consider dating. After all, he’s made the effort to lead a life that honors God—even when it’s hard. But after a chance encounter in Jamaica, Adam has a hard time getting Sara out of his mind.
After Adam apologizes for how he treated her in Jamaica, Sara must adjust her first impression. When he continues to pursue a friendship—and more?--she has to decide if she can trust herself enough to respond. But even if she does, how can Adam trust that the changes Sara has made in her life are real?

I would like to thank Elizabeth Maddrey for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
A Tidbit of Trust is a moving story about changed lives.
Sara has finally surrendered her life to the Lord and is committed to living a godly life, but those who have known her reputation at church don’t believe she is different. She struggled with forgiving herself for her past, especially for the life she had lived as a Christian. There was a beautiful scene in the book where she is having a conversation about her struggle and expressing a desire to do penance for her sins. The response was a wonderful message about how Jesus’ blood is always sufficient to pay for our sins.
Adam was a total jerk to Sara when they bumped into each other in Jamaica. I didn’t like him at all at first because of his self-righteous attitude and lack of forgiveness. But as he saw how wrong he was, he began to grow on me. 🙂 The way he went from despising Sara to wanting to get to know her better was natural and was conveyed in a very believable manner.
This story is part of a series, however, it can be read alone. The entire series is very well written and enjoyable, though, so I suggest you don’t miss any of the books in it.
