Calming the Storm - Melanie Snitker

Synopsis: Rachel has to drop out of school to care for her recently orphaned niece. Brandon, her professor, becomes concerned when he learns about her situation and wants to help. He's falling for her but she's having a hard time accepting that she's not going to be abandoned once again.

Review: There's not a ton of passion or drama in this sweet romance.  Rather, it's a slow progression as Rachel comes to trust Brandon.  Her past has left her skeptical and unsure of building relationships with others.  Snitker does a good job of developing her characters and the story.  Brandon and his family are steady and loving and it's not hard to see and believe that Rachel will soon come to accept that she can be loved. There is quite a bit of praying, and reliance on God is a a central theme.  This is not a light romance but it's not heavy and overbearing either.  It's a lovely story of two people learning to trust God and love each other rather than all of the drama that comes in a fast paced, passionate love story.
