The Text God: Text and You Shall Receive….

  ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  Text and you shall receive...

Jen Flanders moved to New York to be an artist. This translates into walking dogs for money, practicing yoga for sanity, and hitting up her friends at a local bakery to supplement her diet. Rent is due and she's running out of cash. After begging the universe for a sign that help is on the way, her phone pings with an incoming text. GOD: You can do it; I believe in you!

Gabriel Oliver Daly agreed to mentor a friend's younger sister. Unbeknownst to him, after losing her phone, said sister uses her dog walker's phone to text him about a job offer. He responds enthusiastically. 

Jen can't believe GOD is actually texting her! But who is she to question the ways of the universe? On the first day of texting, GOD gets her a job that will keep her afloat. On the second and third days he offers even more help.

Gabriel starts to think his friend's sister might be too flighty to make it in the legal jungle of New York. Why exactly does she need a survival job? Wasn't she supposed to be interviewing for a position as a junior lawyer? And why is she texting him random (not to mention very personal) stuff all the time?

When they finally meet, Jen realizes GOD isn't a deity but a divinely handsome lawyer. A complete stranger has answered all her prayers. After all, God does move in mysterious ways.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  I loved the first book in the series (they are all stand-alone) An Accidentally in Love Book Series, Text Me Tuesday, so I purposely allowed myself to read one chapter per day when reading The Text God. It was extremely hard to only read one chapter a day, but I had to make this book last a while.

It is no secret that Melanie Summers is one of my favorite authors. I also loved Whitney Dineen's The Creek Water Series. So imagine a six book series written by the two of them together… can I not ove it. 

Jen is absolutely hilarious-bills are due and she needs a job or to sell a painting when she asks for a sign. What she gets is a text message from GOD. Gabriel Oliver Daly is GOD, whose number is accidentally entered by a dog walking client of Jen into her phone. The text messages between Jen and GOD for weeks are just too funny. 

Gabe breaks it off with his finance and leaves his job. His family thinks he is having a breakdown. Jen and Gabe's world collides at The Salty Nut Tavern (owned by Mary and Joseph (Gabe's parents). When they both realize that Gabe is GOD and Jen is not his friend's sister - things get interesting. 

The Text God has a lot of humor through it, extremely funny characters and a great story line.  Another must read by Summers and Dineen. Now I get to start book 3 in the series, The Text Wars: May the Text be With You.

Whitney DineenUSA Today Bestselling author Whitney Dineen is a rock star in her own head. While delusional about her singing abilities, there’s been a plethora of validation that she’s a fairly decent author (AMAZING!!!). After winning many writing awards and selling nearly a kabillion books (math may not be her forte, either), she’s decided to let the voices in her head say whatever they want (sorry, Mom). She also won a fourth-place ribbon in a fifth-grade swim meet in backstroke. So, there’s that.

Melanie Summers: Currently resides in Edmonton, Canada, with her husband, three young children, and their goofy dog. When shes not writing romance novels, she loves reading, snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house. Melanie is a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as the International Womens Writing Guild.
