Jennifer Slattery’s Intertwined: A Contemporary Romance Novel introduces you to life and death inside Tammy Kuhn’s ministry during her gut-wrenching and beautiful career where she encounters people during the worse times of their lives!
As an organ procurement coordinator, Tammy sees death, life, and faith on a different level than the family of those she meets.
Although her life is in single, divorced mom chaos, she’s giving hope to many, but her heart is filled with her own pain and bitterness. Will beauty really come from ashes even inside her own life?
In the middle of a contentious custody battle, Nick Zimmerman misses a dad he never had, and he won’t let that become his children’s future no matter what his ex plans. However, a business problem clashes with his children’s visitation and forever changes his life!
To see a high school love again should’ve and could’ve been a turning point in life. However, a death makes things different, pained, and even almost impossible.
***This opinion is my own.***
Intertwined: A Contemporary Romance Novel starts off with marital warfare, family crisis, and faith. In fact, Tammy Kuhn’s ministry is all about faith. She lost someone close to her and found a career.
However, inside her own life, she’s wondering if this ministry is hurting her children since that’s what some say, especially her parents. What really is hurting her children begins with a father who divorced their mother, doesn’t share their faith, and makes visitation a last priority in his life.
The decision of whether she should give up her career just might be taken out of her hands as her childcare issues don’t sit well with her boss, and her “preaching” has been seen as a problem.
On the other hand, Nick puts more money out for law fees to fight for custody, has employees to pay, a restaurant to run, and a bitter ex to deal with for visitation. Finally, things are looking up as visitation is gained, and he’s planning to bond anew with the children he loves.
The last thing Nick needs is something to go wrong, but when it does, he’s left numb, hollow, and wondering why this all happened.
Now, he’s praying for something good to come out of it all.
