ARC Arrival: The Transformation by Terri Kraus

The Transformation (A Project Restoration Novel)
by Terri Kraus

Publisher: David C. Cook

About the book: Oliver Barnett is a good contractor, a good Christian, and an obedient son, never in trouble, never one to rock the boat. . .until real-estate developer Samantha Cohen enters his life and offers him a controversial renovation project: Transform an historic church into a restaurant/night club. Samantha, full of life, vitality, and wit, is unlike any woman he has ever known--in more ways than one. However, with Samantha's less-than-innocent past and the fact that she's Jewish, Oliver's not sure if he should get involved with her or the Blue Church project.

At the same time, Oliver's old girlfriend Paula rekindles a long-ago relationship with him--with the enthusiastic encouragement of his domineering mother. Paula would be the safe choice, and the choice that would appease Mom, yet Oliver is drawn to Samantha because of her beauty and her exotic nature. Oliver finds himself in a most unsettling dilemma. Does he do what's right by the nice girl his mother has chosen for him, or does he follow his heart? (back cover)
