This is Book 3 in the Sacred Vows series (Never Without Hope, Their Separate Ways). In my opinion, each one gets better. I hear there’s going to be a fourth installment, and I’m looking forward to it.

In Decision to Love, it’s eight years after Tony Perotta and Hope Williams’ affair ended. Now there are new problems. Hope and James’ son, Jimmy, has gone away to college, but returns home for the holidays with a startling revelation that devastates his dad, causing his final heart attack. Now, Hope is grieving the loss of her husband, and dealing with Jimmy’s situation.

For Tony, things aren’t looking so good, either. Until he is accused of killing his ex-wife, and is sent to prison for a short time. Before he is found to be innocent, and released, someone visits him there, and helps him to turn his life around. Then, his long-lost daughter from Italy contacts him, about which he is overjoyed. But Nina has secrets of her own.

Will the thread that connects these four people ultimately be what helps make them whole in the end?

Once I started reading, I didn’t want to stop. I had to, though, so I could get my chores done, and whatever else, but it was so, so hard. As in the other books in the series, I like how all of the characters act and react in a realistic way to situations that are relevant to today’s world. But as Christians, sometimes they mess up royally, and sometimes they do what’s right. Sort of like real-life people, eh?

As I’ve said so many times before, Michelle Sutton is one of my favorite authors. I enjoy reading edgy Christian fiction, and she does it so well, you could say she practically invented it. So, if you like edgy, or if Michelle is a favorite author, or even if you’ve never read her works before, I think you’ll love this book.
