The Thief, The Damsel, And The Dragon by Angela R. Watts

Today is the second day of the blog tour for Angela R. Watts new debut novella, The Thief, The Damsel, And The Dragon. I meant to have this posted earlier, but today is my little sister’s birthday and I was distracted today with going to thrift stores to find stuff for her.

“… the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.” ~ Psalms 91:13

Edward Prosner is going to steal from the small town mayor of Fall Springs, North Carolina. He’s got a flawless plan of action and is determined to return honor and justice to his father’s good name. The problem he faces? He needs a date for the mayor’s dinner party.

Lucy Levitt is a huge romantic at heart, but with her family’s ranch and her part-time job, she has no time for dating. She believes God will place her soulmate in her life when the time is right. When the new man in town asks her out, how can she say no?

The first date seems ordinary enough, but then they begin to realize that they can’t fight their dragons alone.

My Review:

You know what? This novella was different from other forgiveness stories I’ve read. Perhaps it may come across as preachy to others, but I personally found this one to be a refreshing read. It hit me with all of the feels, and I found myself getting emotional many times… even realizing I want to be at a better place than I am at right now. And the cover, just…. the cover! It’s just so gorgeous and professional looking.

Ed. I wanted to punch him, then I really loved him. He was such an idiot at times, but I guess he learned an important lesson about stealing as well as forgiveness. I actually find it funny that he cared strongly about something actually didn’t even happen to him. I was super glad he got off of the dark path he was starting on, and ended up making a better life for himself.

Lucy was one of those characters that love God. Although she trusted and loved Him, she was like any other normal human being and doubted Him. She was a realistic character, and that’s one of the things that are important to have in books. Her accent was so adorable! I also really loved how she was a writer herself. I loved what she had to say about books:

TTTDTD, quote 1

Angela weaved in Bible verses perfectly, one of the things that was very refreshing. The writing was done wonderfully, and I found myself really liking the romance between Ed and Lucy. It wasn’t like the kissing romance we see in most books today (like sudden love), but rather more of a different love.

I can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like about this book, because of how clean it was. There was a moment with very minor “violence”, but this would otherwise be something I think many others would enjoy. And after reading this, I know I’ll be watching out for more wonderful works by this author.

If you love clean Christian contemporary reads, then this would totally be the perfect thing for you!
