Book Review: Mars...with Venus Rising by

Mars...With Venus Rising
Book Description:

A meddling horse, paper bag floors and a flying saucer on the town square. The little town of Mars has it all--including a brand new resident who might spell heartache for one of its own.

Twenty-something Penn Davenport yearns for an exciting life in the big city and wants to shed the label of orphan that she's worn for years. To achieve that dream, she must pass the CPA exam then move away from the two aunts who reared her after her parents died in a plane crash.

When John Townsend-full of life and the joy of living-moves to town, he rattles Penn's view of herself, her life, and her dreams...which isn't such a bad thing until she falls for him... and discovers he's a pilot.

Book Review:

If we start out with the cover, I will admit, it really does nothing for me. I like the bright colors, but it doesn't strike me as very professional. Honestly, I'm not sure I'd pick this up off the shelf to see what it was about.

If I was to describe this book in one word I think I would use: Uncomplicated. This is a story about overcoming personal fears. There isn't much of a conflict besides the personal ones, and it's just a simple simple story. I was wondering if it was self-published since it doesn't seem to flow just right, but it is a cute simple Christian story. I don't see myself reading this again, but I don't regret reading it once.
