Reviving Jules by Peggy Trotter will captivate you. Not only for the girl meets boy ideal, but also by introducing you to a little munchkin named Andi, who manages to manipulate her father to please her every whim. She is by no means selfish. She just wants a mummy. When by chance she meets Jules, and learns she lives alone, Andi determines to make her wish come true. Her challenge is to convince her daddy that it is a good idea. That is not so easy. Rhett has doggedly struggled to rear his daughter single-handedly, as well as give all that is required in his career. He is not looking to further complicate his life.

Jules is in a self-induced isolation. She avoids all relationships and especially those involving men as she attempts to find healing from past emotional traumas and mistakes. Rebuilding her life is hard enough. Each adult lives in a world of singleness, and they prefer it that way. Or do they? As the story progresses, it is apparent that little Andi will become the very reason that brings them together, but not in a totally expected manner. To say more will spoil the story.

I found the book easy to read, and the characters very true-to-life. Rhett and Jules fool nobody, not even the reader, when they each maintain their desire to remain single. As God turns the wheels of destiny in their favour, they cannot escape the inevitability of romance. A good book with engaging characters. Recommended for general audiences, with no offensive content.
