Book: Choices
Author: Jacquelyn Lynn
Genre: Contemporary Women’s Fiction
Release Date: April, 2019

In a horrifying moment of inattention on a dark morning, lives change forever.

When college student Samantha Lawrence takes her eyes off the road for just a few seconds to send a text, she swerves out of her lane and hits Kevin Wyland as he rides his bicycle. In a panic, she drives away.

After the crash, Samantha tries to find out who the rider is and the status of his injuries. She is shocked to discover that she knows him. Not only does she shop at the pet supply store he and his wife own, they are both regular customers of Joyful Cup, a popular neighborhood coffee shop, and friends with the owner, Joy Shepherd.

Consumed with overwhelming guilt and fear of criminal charges, Samantha decides to do whatever it takes to avoid being identified as the hit-and-run driver. Kevin struggles with anger, bitterness, and a crisis of faith as he embarks on the slow process of recovering from his serious injuries.

As their lives intertwine with increasing frequency, Samantha and Kevin both turn to Joy for advice and guidance. Can she help them find the forgiveness and peace they need?

This is a heartwarming story with a powerful message of forgiveness that will make you smile even as it brings tears to your eyes.

I was very interested in this book from the first time I read the synopsis. I began reading it and it was slow going at first and I almost put it down. I continued reading and I am VERY glad I did. The storyline picked up around Chapter 3 and from there I couldn't put it down. 

I really enjoyed reading this Novel by Jacquelyn Lynn. The author really brings the characters to "real life" situations and "real life" consequences and decisions throughout the book. The main character, Samantha, hits a pedestrian and then hunts down the person she hit. She knows the guy, Kevin, and even visits the same Coffee Shop as him. She doesn't want to face Criminal charges for the accident, so she is trying to find ways to make sure she is not "found out". Kevin does discover her and is going through physical issues due to the accident, but now emotional issues due to meeting her. Will the 2 form a friendship or something more? Will Samantha continue to try make "Consequential Choices" or will she make "Wise Choices"? Will Kevin forgive her? 

Choices really has a "Small Town" feel when reading the book. The Coffee Shop atmosphere is just beautiful. Choices is a book about facing life and making right Choices. It is also about forgiveness. I really enjoyed this first book in the Joyful Cup series and VERY much looking forward to book 2 in 2020! FANTASTIC BOOK! 

Jacquelyn Lynn finds joy in her faith, family, and friends, and in the knowledge that she is living God’s purpose for her life. In addition to Choices, she is the author of more than 30 non-fiction books including Finding Joy in the Morning and Words to Work By, as well as the meditations in the Christian Meditations and Faith Words Adult Coloring Books.

More from Jacquelyn

The idea for Choices first came to me more than five years ago. Though I’ve written (or ghostwritten) more than 30 non-fiction books, the process of writing a novel was both intriguing and intimidating. Once I voiced my desire, my wonderful husband Jerry Clement became my biggest champion, encouraging and even nagging me along the way as I talked but didn’t write. And when I finally began to write, he listened, offered suggestions, and proofread. Every time I voiced a doubt, he shot it down. As the manuscript neared completion, he designed the cover and supported me through the myriad of details that are essential to finishing and publishing a book. Had it not been for him, Choices would not be in readers’ hands today. As Choices began to take shape, I realized that Joyful Cup, the coffee shop where much of the story takes place, had many more stories to tell. The next book in the Joyful Cup Story series will be released in 2020.
