  • This is my first book to read from this author and I can say that without a doubt this story will forever stay with me. I was not t sure what to expect from this book, but I have found an author that can write a story so focused on family and the turmoils that happen that I didn't want the book to end. It is a short read, but packed with betrayal, unforgiveness, lost love and emotions that will grab your heart as you feel the characters pain and struggles. Jolene is set to marry a very important [...]

  • At first glance, I thought Fiddler’s Fling would be a typical long-gone-wrong-and-then-right-again romance. But it is so much more.

And does it spectacularly.Jolene and Dwight, high school sweethearts, no longer have much in common. In fact, they are poles apart in almost everything. Until Jolene finds out that her father is dying. Past hurts and present ambitions t [...]


  • This is another book from this author that I thoroughly enjoyed. Her writing style and the way she portrays her characters result in pulling the reader into a story that is hard to put down once you have started it. This story follows Jolene, a young woman that is planning her wedding and has a promising career that is called home by someone she had a past relationship with to help care for her father who she feels she was never good enough to earn his love and acceptance. It is a beautiful stor [...]

  • Fiddler's Fling is a well-written story of love and forgiveness. Jolene has not forgiven herself for mistakes she made as a teenager. Her father has not forgiven her for leaving her hometown and becoming engaged to someone he abhors. When Jolene learns of her father's terminal illness, she returns to Brookside and attends church where, for the first time, she asks for God's forgiveness. Linda Wood Rondeau has written an excellent story of a family's love, romantic love and God's love. I recommen [...]

  • Fiddler’s Fling is a contemporary Christian romance about forgiveness and re-establishing relationships. Jolene Murdock has to decide what and who is really important. Fiddler’s Fling is a local music contest that becomes a symbol of Jolene’s life – should she play her fiddle with her father or leave for life in the city. I really enjoyed this story. I received a copy from the publisher by way of The Book Club Network (bookfun) in exchange for an honest review.


  • I enjoyed reading Fiddler's Fling. This was an intriguing tale of mistakes compounded by trying to cover them up and the pain we cause ourselves and others when we try to enforce self-imposed punishments. The author did a good job of dealing with a difficult subject in a Christian context without being preachy or judgmental.


  • A lot of romances, even Christian romances, can get monotonous and/or sappy, right? Well, this one can't be classified as either boring or gooey. No way.Jolene Murdock is a young woman who is upward bound. She's engaged to political hopeful Robert Ashworth, soon-to-be New York State senator, and she's under the watchful and instructive eye of Robert's mother, the woman who had become her substitute mother.The problem is that now her father--who hasn't spoken to her since she left to work for Rob [...]


  • Wonderful readSo refreshing. Enjoyed this book very much. Proving God's love for us no matter what we do in life. Enjoy!


  • At first, this seems to be the story of a couple who broke up because of a silly misunderstanding, then when they're brought together again, they realize there really wasn't a problem and rebuild their relationship. But what kept Jolene away from Dwight was a serious secret sin, not a silly teenage misunderstanding. She was also estranged from her father and from God. She had to forgive herself before the relationships with her father, the man of her dreams, and the Lord could be restored.


  • Suburb read!!! Mixture of misunderstood family love, mistakes of the past, estrangement, the influence of a powerful family, resentment and self punishment make for a unease way of living. Until Jolene Murdock faces the struggles within herself, she will be stalled in forgiveness of self and others. She needs to learn to seek redemption first from God then from the people who really love and care about her unselfishly.Will she be able to turn her back on the fame and fortune her finance has give [...]

Even though estranged, Jolene decides to go back home and try to restore her relationship with her father and help him.This is a wonderful story about love and forgiveness, redemption and restoration.I just loved the theme of this book -- that unforgiveness rips apart, but with God, even the worst things can b [...]


  • I think this was a nicely written story. The characters were well developed. The story held my attention from beginning to end. I didn’t know how it would all end, and was satisfied with the ending. Just enough drama and suspense to keep me reading. The one issue I did have with the book was that the dialog wasn’t always clearly identified as to who the speaker was and sometimes I had to re-read it to identify the speaker. Overall, nice read.


  • A beautifully written Christian romance. Fiddler's Fling has a great plot and well developed characters. You will love some of the characters and others not so much. This book drew me in from page one and I could not put it down. It is the type of book that I hate to see end.


  • Sweet love story, formulaic but a nice escape. Honest, I'd rate it higher if I liked romances. The writing is sound, the characters well-rounded, and the messages are on point for today's youth. Nice job, Linda!
