Perfect Ways by Jeri Odell

Heartsong Presents #906
ISBN 978-1-60260-885-6

Adelaide needs a fresh start.

I can’t do this. Forced to sell all her possessions upon the death of her husband, Adelaide English suddenly finds herself moving cross-country, enrolling in college at forty-five, and landing a job as the new freshman resident director. But starting fresh isn’t easy—especially when Adelaide finds herself in the crossfire of a college scandal. . .and romance.

I will never love again. Dr. Isaiah Shepherd has never looked at another woman since his wife died. . .until Adelaide enters his world. Something about her fragile, caged spirit draws him, even against his better judgment. But as scandal unfolds, Isaiah must make a choice. Fight for the woman he’s falling for, or just let her go?

As rumors fly, will Adelaide find forgiveness, freedom, and even love?
Psalm 18:30 "As for God, His way is perfect; the Word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him."

Last week we shared our favorite states to visit. What is one that you haven't yet visited, but it's on your to do list?


  1. New York is on my must see list. Mostly because I want to experience New York City once in my life. See an actual Broadway play!

  2. Perfect ways sounds so unique!

    There are so many states I want to visit, especially along the east coast because I've never been to any of them. But, since my current WIP is set in Georgia and I've never been, I'd love to go there.

  3. Rose, you echoed my sentiments exactly. NYC is the place I'd most like to go. Maybe someday...

    Cindy, I hope you enjoy Perfect Ways. It is a bit different than any Heartsong I’ve written.

  4. I've been blessed to see all the states but one, and I'd love to visit Alaska... in the summer!
