Review: ‘What Matters Most’ (The Spencer Family) by Andrea Boyd

About The Book
Jolene Spencer had been perplexed from the first mention of Micah Abrams. Why would a grown man uproot his life and move two states over at the urging of Jo’s momma? How did he and Ma even meet? And he’s raising a daughter by himself. Where is the child’s momma and how does she fit into his plans?
When Jo first sees him standing on the front porch, staring like a deer caught in the headlights and seemingly unable to speak, she pegs him as a shy one. But then he walks in with a confident swagger and mingles with her family like he’s been there all his life.
Jo finds herself falling for the stranger and his adorable little girl. A dream that had been tucked away and forgotten about suddenly seems within her grasp. Then her worst sin is exposed, and it all turns to ash. She’s not the woman she once was, but does that even matter? Micah seems willing to set her mistakes aside, but can she forgive herself?
About Andrea Boyd
Each of Andrea Boyd’s series represents a different genre but all fall into the category of romance. All offer an element of her own brand of humor. And all are a tribute to God. Besides writing, she loves spending time with her family, quilting, going to car shows, and driving around in her 1968 Barracuda convertible. Andrea lives with her husband, Tommy, and at least a couple of cats in York County, SC.

My Rating: 5 stars!

‘Some people had to hit rock bottom before they called on God. Maybe she was nearing that point.’

This series, which I suspect isn’t quite over, has been so very good. Heartwarming. Precious. Deeply moving, and, I must say, at times very heartbreaking. I wept during the reading of this one. Jo’s troubles and the affect they had on her heart hurt to read sometimes.

Andrea Boyd knows her stuff, creating great characters and weaving their joys, problems, heartaches into a rich and moving story. Well done!
