Is a little respect too much to ask at a parent’s funeral?


Apparently it is for Destiny May. Clay Gallagher is built like a small mountain and far more vocal than is fitting when he shows up late to her mother’s “going away party.” When it turns out he’s not even at the right funeral, Destiny demands retribution in the form of an escape from the day’s dreary proceedings. Spending time with a handsome stranger who makes her laugh is more therapeutic than fighting with her overbearing family.


Clay finds Destiny beautiful, charming...and intelligent. So why is she stubbornly determined to open a Christian dating service? Clay has little respect for such a frivolous profession, and doesn’t think the small, conservative town of Castle Creek will welcome such a progressive business. But when Destiny is threatened by an anonymous caller who deeply resents her and what she does for a living, Clay makes it his business to keep the saucy redhead out of harm’s way.


Trouble is, spending time in her company weakens his defenses, and Destiny may be the one thing Clay can’t escape...if he even wants to.

Well over a decade ago, I read a book about a young woman who operated a dating agency. At that time, datings services hadn't become quite the "thing" they are now, and I was fascinated by the concept. Immediately I wondered, what if such an agency existed for Christians? I played with it in my head. Stewed over it as I washed dishes, mulled it over as I made beds, dreamed up scenes as I drove down the road. I talked about writing a book based around a Christian dating agency when I was interviewed, but the only real "work" I'd done on it was in my head. Then one day, it was as if God pointed a finger at me and said, "It's time. Do it." By this time, the dating agency had a name - Solomon's Gate - and it had become an entire series of books, rather than a single stand-alone. I started writing. God started leading. Things started happening...little touches of the divine that made their way into Solomon's Gate. I had such a wonderful time with this series, and God taught me so much through it. Love it, love it, love it!

In Destiny's Dream, Latham writes a story with a nice blend of humor and romance and a neat little thread of intrigue. You won't want to miss this first installmentin the Solomon's Gate Series. Latham knows how to weave a wonderful story and balance it with biblical truths to inspire and challenge the reader. Destiny's Dream belongs on every reader's bookshelf.
