Review: Falling for the Millionaire by Merrillee Whren

I enjoyed reading Falling for the Millionaire by Merrillee Whren. 

My Thoughts

This was a sweet romance. I was drawn to Melody as soon as I learned about her fear of risk due to the many losses she'd endured in her life. After a blind date with Melody, Hudson wants to know her better, but she doesn't want the risk of a relationship with him. Hudson agrees to honor Melody's request not to ask her for another date which made me respect his character.

The story unfolded in a way where I could interpret the things that happened being by God's design to bring them together. Hudson's construction company is hired for an expansion project and Hudson's family plays a role in their relationship. I cheered for Hudson's family's intervention!

At one point, Hudson considered giving up his adventurous hobbies because he thought it would make him more attractive to Melody. I wanted to stomp my foot and say "Absolutely not!" to Hudson when he considered this! Thankfully this was only a fleeting thought and story went on to show Melody making a decision to trust God with Hudson's adventurous side. 

This is part of the Village of Hope series, however I have not read any of the other books and had no trouble reading this as a stand alone novel.

I borrowed this book from the library. I was not required to write a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Something that made reading this book extra special is that the library also had a large print copy which I borrowed for my mom (who loves to read, but has vision problems) and we read the book at the same time. 😊

I Was Inspired By

I was inspired by Melody's frequent prayers. She prayed often in her day and that was a good reminder to me.

From the Back of the Book

Millionaire Hudson Conrick is used to being liked for his family name and fortune. So when Melody Hammond cuts short their blind date, Hudson can’t help but be curious about the pretty ministry director. And when Conrick Construction wins the bid to expand the women’s shelter at the Village of Hope ministry where she works, he’ll get the chance to know her better. He soon learns that because of her painful past, Melody leads a cautious life. But as a former solider, Hudson craves adventure. Can he convince Melody that while he likes to have fun, his reckless days are behind him—and that he’s her perfect match?
