How do you know destiny when it knocks on your door, or recognize it if it’s always been there? Christian Riley, Elizabeth Horace, and Oscar Albright grew up together, the clichéd “church kids”, but Chris quickly found everything about his life stifling. When he moves to Los Angeles to get away from everything his existence has dictated for him, he doesn’t expect Elizabeth to follow him, but he’s known for as long as he can remember that she loves him obsessively…just as Oscar loves her. With Chris’s faith in tatters, he has no interest in Christianity let alone morality. Yet in the thirteen years that follow, he finds himself returning to Elizabeth whenever he hits rock bottom. When a serial killer/rapist’s attack of Elizabeth is mercifully thwarted, Chris’s world collapses in on him. The attack has changed Elizabeth. She realizes she’s put her life on hold for too long. Has Chris fallen in love when his angel of... More > mercy is no longer available to him? Destiny… Do you believe?< Less

4 ½ Stars! “This story shows that, quite often, what you are desperately searching for in your life has always been there, unseen due to its familiarity. And as with Elizabeth, it also shows that love is often blind. Too blind. The lucky ones realize it before it is too late. Once again the author, Karen Wiesner, has written an inspirational romance that kept me reading far longer than I should have. (I rescheduled a dentist appointment just so I could finish it.) I would also like to mention that a card game (called Destiny Poker) is played in this story. A small section, in the back of this book, tells how the author came up with the game. Since the idea first came to mind, Destiny Poker has been tweaked and refined and is now available to the public. You can find details on how to play Destiny Poker in the book. The author has even made a special card deck, which you may choose to order. (I have a deck. The back of each card has a picture of the book’s cover. I have to admit... More > that the cards are gorgeous.) This is a stand-alone story. No other book needs to be read to fully enjoy it. The characters have well-developed backgrounds and are so believable that, were they real people, I could have called them my friends. A wonderful story to curl up with on a cold night or take with you on a plane or vacation. Very heartwarming.” ~Huntress Review 5 Stars! “A wonderful inspirational second chance. The latest inspirational visit to Peaceful, Wisconsin (see Family Heirlooms and the Friendship Heirlooms Series) is a wonderful romance starring a lost soul and the love of a woman destined to return him to the flock. The lead couple and Oscar make for a strong tale as love is blind but in this case not in the traditional meaning. Fans will enjoy playing Destiny Poker as Karen Wiesner provides a tender second chance at family, love between soul mates and with the Lord drama.” ~Genre Go Round Reviews 4 Stars! “DESTINY was a very nice story. And if you like, Christian romances, you’ll like this one. You rooted for the characters to find the peace and love; they needed in order to feel whole. There were some serious issues and Chris faces them head-on. You sympathized with the characters and hoped they finally got what they wished for and they’d be happy once they received it. Definitely worth reading.” ~BTS eMag< Less
