"Gypsy’s Game" by Delia Latham is the third book in her Solomon’s Gate Series. What would a man do when in a dream every night an Angel came to him and told him God wanted him to marry a certain woman. After many nights Jal Garridan agrees and this leads him to Solomon’s Gate and Gypsy Lovelle. The only problem was that Gypsy wants a husband only for 6 months, long enough to collect an inheritance her father left her, even though he has been out of her life since she was four years old. When he offers to marry her though he had never seen her before, Destiny, owner of Solomon’s Gate wonders what he is doing. A Christian marrying a non-Christian is not one of the rules of her dating service. So the story begins in the lives of Jal and Gypsy. As Jal sets down rules for their marriage such as no divorce,daily devotional time together along with church attendance, can she abide by these rules? When God has his hand in any relationship it will turn out for the best.
After reading the first two books in the Solomon’s Gate Series I patiently waited for the third one to come out. Some of the same characters that one has come to love in the first two books are found here also but they do not overshadow the main characters. I enjoyed reading this book very much and really connected with Gypsy. There was just something about her that one could help but wish the best for her. A woman that had a heart so harden it would not only take the love of her husband but God to melt the ice. When she meets Solomon it made me stop and think. There are angels around us constantly and how they appear to a person can be in many ways. To Gypsy he was beautiful with a glow and soft translucent wings. This goes to show that when God has a plan for one’s life, no matter what you try and do, you will not be able to change it. This book was so hard for me to put down that I read it straight through right up to the climatic ending. I would be hard pressed as to which of the books in this series I think is the best as they are all excellent but I think "Gypsy’s Game" is my favorite. I feel the book can be read as a standalone but for better understanding I feel one needs to read all three. Highly recommended for everyone.
