A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury was a book that at first I didn’t like but by the end I loved the book and the characters. This is the second book I have read by this author and I have fallen even more in love with this author than I was before. I wasn’t a huge fan of Jade and Tanner’s parents throughout the entire book. I know it is because of how they acted towards each other and if I am being honest small town crap just bugs me. I really did like Jade and Tanner though so that made reading the book not so bad. This is the second book in the series but you don’t have to read the books in order so if you just want to read this one you won’t be lost. This book was a super easy read and one that I was able to read in a couple of days so you don’t have to commit tons of time to read this one. If you love chick lit I know you will love this book as much as I did.
About The Book
Had they found each other again after all these years, only to lose everything that matters most?”
“As children, Jade Conner and Tanner Eastman were best friends–until scandal drove them apart. Then, one golden summer, they find each other again. Through endless days they share their hearts and souls and dreams of forever. Then, in a moment of weakness, they make a decision that will tear them apart for nearly a decade.
In their own separate corners of the country, Jade and Tanner have become fighters for religious freedom. Now Jade’s unfaithful husband is determined to destroy her in a custody battle that will rock the nation and shake people’s understanding of faith and freedom. Could Jade lose her only child because of her faith? Only one man can help her in her darkest hour. And only one old woman knows the secret about that summer and the truth that can set them all free.”
