While on vacation in the USA, secret billionaire Augustus Moss III falls in love with the pastor’s daughter and secretly funds all her ministry projects in this story of unrequited love.
Pray for Me is the fifth novel in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Vacation Sweetheartsseries of standalone Christian travel romances. We first met Gus in Smile for Me (Vacation Sweethearts Book 1). At that time, he has left the corporate world and was the landscape gardener at Chapel by the Sea Christian School in Nassau in the Bahamas. Pray for Me is his story.
Unwanted time off…
When his ex-his fiancée marries one of his best friends, Gus needs a vacation to get his mind off his lost love. He takes the entire summer off and visits his cousin Byron in Atlanta, Georgia, where he finds himself volunteering at Byron’s church, Midtown Chapel, in its ministry to homeless teenagers. Coming from a wealthy family, Gus has never seen people that poor and in distress.
The single and unattached ministry director, Judy Fitzpatrick, finds Gus perplexing. He has at least two MBAs from a prestigious university, but he would rather plant a garden for a fraction of the salary. When Judy asks for volunteers from church to help build tiny houses for homeless families in the community, Gus signs up to do landscaping. He gets so involved in the project that he doesn’t seem to want to leave, escorting Judy everywhere she goes. Is he more interested in the ministry itself or in Judy?
When Midtown Chapel, Seaside Chapel, and Riverside Chapel come together to plant a new church in the small town of Laurel Lake outside Atlanta, where Judy’s grandmother still lives, Judy and Gus both volunteer to join the survey team to locate a church site for the new Lakeside Chapel. The laidback, small-town atmosphere draws them together, causing Gus to do something unexpected that might change their entire relationship. Will he be able to turn back the clock or will he lose Judy forever due to his one decision?
