Walk A Straight Line by Michelle Lindo-Rice Review

walk a straight line


Two friends . . . Two brothers . . . Two weddings . . . Too many secrets . . .
Colleen MacGregor rededicated her life to God when she met and married Terence Hayworth. However, her happily-ever-after will have to wait, because she has some serious dragons to slay to sustain her marriage and keep her friendship with Gina Price intact. After fifteen years of friendship, Colleen must now draw the line and stop telling Gina everything.
What did God do to her friend? Gina finds it hard to deal with Colleen’s newfound faith. She thinks Colleen has become self-righteous, subjecting Gina to her holy tirades whenever the mood strikes. When Gina begins dating one brother, while simultaneously falling in love with the other, boy, does she get an earful! Gina, however, is way too busy trying to sort her way through her own murky feelings to worry about her soul. Her heart wants what it wants.
Michelle Lindo-Rice explores the complicated world of female friendships. Can a friendship survive when one friend becomes saved?

I absolutely L-O-V-E-D Walk A Straight Line! Colleen and Gina are lifelong friends whose friendship comes into question when one of them decides to have a closer relationship with the Lord. Many questions arise such as can one still love their friend if they choose not to walk the same spiritual path as you and can a friendship remain intact if a person decides to live life on her own terms instead of following God’s Word?

“Colleen stopped her cold. “You’d better get out of my face, or you’ll be picking your teeth up off the floor.” She knew she was saved, but she meant every word. It was eye for an eye time, and she wasn’t going to turn the other cheek – except to slap it.”

I applaud Michelle Lindo-Rice for showing that even in Christian fiction it is ok to portray your characters as having real-life emotions and reactions. She doesn’t gloss over anything and make it seem like Christians live a life void of drama. Walk A Straight Line was a dream to me. The words flowed effortlessly off of every single page. Every time I flipped a page it built upon the last one and moved the story forward. Walks A Straight Line is so far one of my favorites of 2014!
