A ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review of Finding Charity by Jody Pardo
A short, sweet, little novella about finding joy and compassion…and, of course, a little heat and passion. Jody Pardo added a bit of passion, drama, suspense, and romance in a cute little package.
With great promise and Mark and Charity’s quick burning chemistry, I had high hopes for this short novella; however, it moved a little to quickly to completely develop the characters the way I would have liked. I wanted a deeper level of connection with Mark Lyon; I wanted to understand what made him bitter and cold at the beginning and how he was able to change his demeanor within a couple of days.
Although the author makes it clear that his attraction and concern for Charity is the reason, it is simply not well developed enough to make it plausible. Starting out the relationship with a completely sexual experience where he does not even know her name, to being pulled into her life within less than 24 hours, was hard to process. All said and done, it was a cute story that I think could be turned into a powerful story about redemption and compassion if the characters had been given the time and pages needed to tell their whole story. But…I still enjoyed it.
