"Wonders Never Cease" A Book Review

So, what happens when you take a single working mom, her daughter who sees angels, and a live-in boyfriend who thinks the rules don't apply to him? You get an interesting book, "Wonders Never Cease" by Tim Downs.

When I first picked up the book I thought it was going to be about the relationship between the two adults and the struggles involved in step-parenting. Instead, the plot evolves into a story about a man who has always tried to use shortcuts and underhanded means to get ahead in life. And of course, he always fails. This time he capitalizes on a Hollywood star's accident, the fact that people will believe anything they read, especially if Oprah endorses it, and a little girl's belief in angels.

In the end, he gets everything he deserves and then some!

This was a fun and easy book to read that reminds you that 1. there really is no substitute for hard work; 2. your past will catch up with you at some point and 3. people tell us who they are, but too often we don't listen.

I received this book from Thomas Nelson publisher's as part of the booksneeze review program. I was not required to write a positive review.
