Where Was God? Fayth Angelica Hope, questioned after the death of her father. Reared by a mother who could give, Cruella Deville, a run for her money as, “The Queen of Mean,” Fayth turns her back on the church, her faith, and love. She believed, no, just and merciful God would have abandoned her to the harsh brutality of her mother’s iron fist. Her emotional and spiritual scars run deep, lasting into adulthood.

As a promising investigative reporter, she decides to change her name. Her given name of Fayth has more curses attached to it than blessings. She hopes the switch to Angelica will give her the clean slate she desires.

Assigned to investigate financial advisor Jasion McCoy, Angelica goes in determined to expose him for embezzlement. She hopes the story will advance her career as one of the top reporters across the country. Instantly, there is an attraction. But she hides her feelings from him. After a series of missteps, broken heartedness, and rejections in her past, she buries the notion of any man, especially a man of his caliber, ever loving her. With the evidence stacked against him, she believes his only interest in her, is to keep from going to prison.

Top-notch financial advisor Jasion McCoy is in the middle of an embezzlement scheme. When Angelica Hope shows up in his office, he knows he’s in trouble. She is one of the hottest investigative reporters in Port City and now she’s gunning for him. How can Jasion convince her that he is innocent? And how can he hold back his feeling for the woman who’s out to do him in?


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review. 

Where Was God? is a Christian romance with a little bit of suspense. It’s the story of Angelica, who suffered a lot of abuse by her mother, and Jasion, who had a good childhood but is haunted by the memory of a girl he fell in love with when he was 13. 

I liked this story for the most part. It was easy to understand why Angelica put walls up around her heart and turned her back on God. It was also refreshing to read about how Jasion didn’t give up on her. His keeping Nicole a secret seemed totally out of character, though. I was pretty disgusted with Angelica when she was so quick to believe the worst about Jasion.

If you like Christian romance, I recommend this book if you don’t mind quite a few grammatical errors. One that made me laugh: Jasion was thinking to himself, “Say something stupid” rather than “Say something, stupid.”
