{{Book Review}} Mars . . . with Venus Rising | 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.

wenty-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.

*My Review*

I really enjoyed reading “Mars…with Venus Rising” even though the frequent food descriptions made me super hungry! lol.  Hope Toler Dougherty has included all of the tempting recipes described within the story. I will be making these recipies very soon! 

Loved the strong characters, & the well-developed plot. Hope sends out an  excellent message about reliance on God, this story held my interest from page 1(one) until the end.. This was my first time reading anything by this author, but I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for more of her books.
