I’m divided when it comes to how I feel about this book. I think the plot is an important one. The Book Store Rule focuses on three couples and shows the reader how there is no such thing as a perfect relationship, even if you’re a Christian. Ms. Jones weaves Scripture throughout the book and her faith is apparent. Not a Christian, though? Still give it a shot. It’s not a very “preachy” book, though, of course, it is Christ-centered.
The part about this book I had trouble with was the dialogue between the characters. I understand that each character is an educated professional adult, but that does not mean that each character needs to talk the exact same way (Everyone seemed to speak “proper English,” complete with a minimal use of contractions). Because of this, several parts of the book not flow naturally.
Other than that, though, it’s a good book that I recommend.
