Don’t lean to your own understanding. Acknowledge God in all your ways, and He will direct your path.

Does time truly heal a broken heart?

Cody thought it had until she walked into the diner like she owned the world and back into his life as if she owned him.

Can betrayal ever be completely forgiven?

Cindy thought it could until she saw him with the bleached blonde. Her Cody!

Separated eighteen years, Cody Wayne Buckmeyer and Cindy think they can put the past behind them and work toward a common goal, a congressional seat . . . but is that possible?

Bipartisan Love, set in 1969, tells the story of what happens when life takes individuals down different paths but then provides an opportunity for the two to come together again.  At first, I found this story slow and found it difficult to like or concentrate on the plot. But as the story went on, I found myself caught up in finding out the outcome of the story.  As stories go, one that takes a Democrat and a Republican and pushes them together first for a political campaign and then allows them to find love, the story eventually caught my interest.

Cody and Cindy belong together, but they both have secrets from the time they were apart.  Cody’s mother and sister both want Cody and Cindy to marry, however, Cody’s sense of honor forces him to honor the commitment he made to Amy.

Initially, I found Cindy to be pushy and overbearing.  I have to say, I did like Cody from the beginning, but I disliked Amy from the beginning.  Amy, the fiancee of Cody seems to be artificial and a money hunter.  All she wants is the money, power, and prestige that would come from marrying Cody.  While engaged to Cody, she chases after Bill, a Marine whom she actually loves.  When she winds up pregnant by Bill, she attempts to rush a wedding with Cody.  When that attempt fails, she moves on to the idea of having an abortion.  But I have to say I am glad Cody’s father intervenes and gets Bill to rush to her side before the abortion could take place.

This story includes mentions of rape and abortion, so if these are triggers for you, you may want to avoid this story.

However, if you enjoy reading about small-town life, politics, family, and love, check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

About the Author

caryl-mcadoo-212x300

Praying her story gives God glory, award-winning, best-selling author Caryl McAdoo loves revisiting beloved characters in her novels. And her readers are glad she does! She’s blessed that her titles earned over fifty-percent 5-Star ratings and eighty-five to ninety percent 4 & 5-Stars! With forty-four novels (thirty-four in the last four-and-a-half years), it’s obvious she loves writing, but singing the new songs the Lord gives her also rates high. (Listen to a few at YouTube.)

Married to Ron, her high school sweetheart, she counts their four children and eighteen grandsugars life’s best blessings. The McAdoos live in the woods south of Clarksville, seat of Red River County in far Northeast Texas, waiting expectantly for God to open the next door.

 

More from Caryl

I totally enjoy revisiting characters from previous stories! That’s one reason I love writing ‘Family Sagas” like the Texas Romances that has ten full-length novels and Cross Timbers Romances with two books and counting! The third launches this coming September.

In BIPARTISAN LOVE, we get to spend time again with the Buckmeyers—Travis and Emma Lee from Texas Romance Book Ten CHIEF OF SINNERS. My heart could barely leave these dear people after book ten, so I’ve written a few “Companion Books” (five and counting 😊) that go with the Texas Romance series—either going back to meet ancestors or forward for their descendants or just more stories with the characters you already love.

Readers first met Cody Buckmeyer and his kissing cousin (by marriage) best friend Cynthia Kramer as pre-teens in SON OF PROMISE. In that story, Emma Lee, so longing to be a mom, gets her heart’s desire in Cody, her husband’s son she’s never known about. The two youngsters became fast friends, but Cindy went overseas when LBJ gave her father an ambassadorship.

It’s been eighteen years, and Cody’s engaged to another. After her letters stopped, he gave up all hope. A liberal Democrat, Cynthia comes home after working in Hubert Humphries’ losing bid for the presidency, and wants Cody, a conservative Republican, to run for a Congressional seat with her as his campaign manager!

How’s this supposed to work?
