  • Virginia Lieto

    Return to Paradise, by Tim Speer, makes for an interesting read. David Martin, a Catholic investment banker from Dallas, Texas, is in the process of driving to his hometown in Missouri. OOPS! His car suffers a little mishap near Spring River Missouri, requiring that he stay in town for a few days.While in Spring River, David learns of some unsavory financial happenings in town. Such dealings promise to make life miserable for many of the local citizens. David suspects that the action is illegal. [...]

    I love the new cover! I judge a book first and foremost by the story, and I really like this story. It's one that makes me hopeful there are still good, honest people willing to help those that have been taken advantage of. There's a soft spot in my heart for farmers who lose their farms because of poor lending practices, tax laws, eminent domain, or any reason out of the control of the landowners. My inner editor wanted to suggest some of the narration be changed to "show" versus "tell," but I [...]

    First off I would like to express my thanks and deep appreciation for the gift of this book in exchange for an honest review. I would guess that the author may be surprised to know I am an atheist :O So I will start off by saying I recommend this book to Christians ;) Its the story of an ordinary guy named David Martin who ends up in a town called Spring River after an accident. There, he meets a waitress and finds out that many of the locals are about to face serious money problems. People are [...]

    Just when you start making plans, God has His plan to use you somewhere else. This was a wonderfully written story about the power of prayer, listening and paying heed when God speaks to you, God's timing, and how all things work together. Not a heavy read, very enjoyable - so enjoyable that once I started, I read right to the end! I appreciated the explanation of some of the differences between the Catholic and Protestant beliefs and showing that there is room for both to live together peaceabl [...]

    I have read a few Christian Fiction novels, but never a CATHOLIC Fiction novel. This book is a must read for any Catholic. Tim's explanations of the Eucharist and the Crucified Christ are worth the read all by themselves.The story itself is quite engaging as well. It really starts at the words 'holy cow'!!I leave you to discover the rest of the story and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.


  • JoAnn Oswald

    Great Christian FictionRefreshing story of what happens in our lives when we trust God and listen with our hearts and turn to prayer. People of all faiths should enjoy this book even though the main character is Catholic. I would enjoy a sequel to this book where the main characters future lives and journey with their faith is developed.

  • NancyDrew

    WHAT a marvellously clever written story!!!!!I never thought this book would have such a very clever plot!!!!!. first I thought "where is this going?", but the more I read the more I loved it,and then all I could think was " Wow,is this ever really amazingly miraculous!!!!!God surely DOES work in mysterious ways,and this just goes to show you what can happen when you pray persistently, and yeah it COULD have happened in reality!!!!!

    I am always excited to find Catholic fiction books. I thought this one was good but lacked elements of a great story. It seemed that this was the outline of the story and that it was perhaps rushed. The message and the plot were good if sometimes a little unbelievable. Miracles do happen but in real life nothing is perfect and doesn't all happen according to plan. The characters, dialogue, writing and Catholic theology were just very straightforward information without feeling and depth. I was n [...]

    This is a lovely novel. If a book doesn’t engage me, I may not finish it. I read Return to Paradise from beginning to end, enjoying every page. Yes, there’s more telling than showing, but the grammar and punctuation are perfect. Written in a style more popular in a bygone era, take off your editor’s hat, as I did, and simply enjoy the story.If you’re Catholic, you’ll appreciate the author’s sprinkling of familiar things throughout the book. If you’re not a Catholic, sit back and le [...]

    If you enjoy a clean, gentle romance, then you'll probably like Return to Paradise. Both the premise of the story and its message appealed to me. There aren't a whole lot of Christian romances featuring Catholic characters, and that makes it stand out from so many other novels.I think another pass by an editor would make this book better by minimizing backstory, increasing climactic tension, and taking a closer point of view. That's the only thing compelled me to put it at 3.5/4 stars. I look fo [...]
