When his ex-fiancée marries someone else, landscaper Gus takes a vacation away from his Bahamas home, visits his cousin in the USA, and falls in love with a pastor’s daughter. Is it just romance on the rebound? Or is there something serious going on in this friends-to-more travel romance?
Pray for Me is the fifth novel in USA Today bestselling author Jan Thompson’s Vacation Sweethearts series of standalone Christian travel romances. We first met Gus in Smile for Me (Vacation Sweethearts Book 1). At that time, he had left the corporate world and was a landscape gardener in the Bahamas. Pray for Me is his story.
Unwanted time off…
After losing Veronique, Augustus Moss III needs a distraction and a change of scenery. He takes a leave of absence from his landscaping job in Nassau and flies to Atlanta, Georgia, to visit his cousin, Byron Moss. When Byron’s whole family catches a cold, Gus ends up staying at Pastor Fitzpatrick’s house and finds himself drafted into serving in some of Midtown Chapel’s summer ministries. He agrees to help because he is a friend of the pastor’s eldest daughter, Tallulah, who seems to believe strongly in charity work.
Women’s Ministry Director Tallulah Fitzpatrick is not only ministering to single moms in the Atlanta area, but she is also on the Midtown Chapel committee to plant a new church in the small town of Lakeside in North Georgia, where her grandmother still lives. Pulled in many directions, she is grateful to have Gus volunteering. Although she has made up her mind to only marry an ordained pastor, she can’t help being drawn to Gus, the landscaper with an MBA.
Are Gus and Tallulah just flirting with each other for the summer, or will the romance last into the winters of their lives? When a problem arises at Midtown Chapel, Gus does something unexpected, surprising even himself. Will he lose Tallulah due to his spur-of-the-moment decision that he can’t follow up with when he returns to the Bahamas?
