Reviewed by Sefina Hawke for Readers' Favorite

Slow Road to Love (A Sunburned Land Series Book 1) by Juliette Duncan is a Christian contemporary romance that would appeal most to an audience of middle-aged and older adults who enjoy Christian romance stories. Maggie Donovan’s life took quite a turn when her politician husband of thirty-five years left her to be with a woman much younger than her. This leads to Maggie choosing to divert her focus to her job as a reporter, her children, and her church. Her devotion to her career leads Maggie to travel to the remote Kimberley area where she meets widower Frank Goddard. Will Maggie and Frank be able to put their pasts behind them and form a relationship or will their differences prove insurmountable?

Slow Road to Love by Juliette Duncan is a well-written book with a visually appealing cover image. I liked the fact that the author chose to put the two main characters on the cover as it gave me a clear picture of what each one of them looked like. I liked that Maggie and Frank were not the typical characters one reads about in romances as both were older and they each had already been in a marital relationship, which gave each of them more depth as a character. I enjoyed following Maggie through her troubles and feelings as she got to know Frank and, more importantly, as she opened her heart to him. Overall, I greatly enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to being able to read the rest of the series in the future!
