Giveaway -- Guest Review of Susanne Dietze's "First Things First" in First Love Forever Romance Collection


"First Things First"
novella by Susanne Dietze
Five Stars *****
A Sweet Reminder
Review by Andrea Stephens

"First Things First" is in First Love Forever Romance Collection (Barbour, April 2018) By Erica Vetsch, Susanne Dietze, Cynthia Hickey, Marcia Gruver, Carrie Fancett Pagels, Martha Rogers, Lorna Seilstad, Connie Stevens, and Jennifer Uhlarik

I was very touched by each of the novellas in this 5 Star book. Each story tells of a couple separated by time for varying reasons, being reunited in unique circumstances.

-First Things First by Susanne Dietze. Georgie and Ward grow up together and fall in love. Thinking he would never be good enough to marry her, Ward leaves town. He returns years later, a lawyer, hoping to better his family name and reputation.

As Georgie and Ward work together to clear her brother of bizarre charges, they realize the feelings they had for each other are still there but they decide to just be friends. I can't say exactly what happens without spoilers. I can say drama ensues, things of the past come to light.

There is a sweet message reminding us to let God take care of things and put Him first.

Giveaway: An autographed copy of First Love Forever.
