The PASTOR'S WIFE by Jennifer Allee

This was an interesting story line for me and at times difficult to believe. Maura Sullivan finds herself back in Granger for a quick visit and then "get out of town" before someone sees me. What she wasn't expecting was to find her husband at the reading of a will that she hasn't seen or spoken to for 6 years. Nick Shepherd is the pastor in this small community and has been for 6 years. Although both their hearts were broken 6 years ago, they find themselves thrown together again by the reading of this will. And I think you all know how this story will end.

I guess there are married couples who drift apart because one is so focused on their job and the other can't speak up and say what the problem is, but I find it hard to believe that for 6 years neither party tried to fix this problem if they loved each other as it was obvious they truly did. I enjoyed watching them get to know one another all over again, except this time they both listened, talked and became aware of their mates thoughts and feelings. I enjoyed reading the story, I just had a hard time wrapping my mind around some of the things that took place; but that is why it is called "fiction"!
