Joyce Williams and Wayne Mahan have always been best friends; even after graduation, they continued writing letters. Joyce wanted a life of adventure far from her small hometown. Pan Am beckons and Joyce answers. With their ten-year class reunion on the horizon, each decides to attend. They are once more together in their hometown. However, Wayne has always had a secret love for Joyce and it is hard to hide when they meet again. Will his love ruin the perfect friendship? My romance book reviews of Friendly Persuasion follows. CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT: As always, Jo Huddleston created a sweet clean romance filled with small-town values, faith, love, and life-changing decisions. Huddleston's talent for interweaving faith and values into her stories without pushing those beliefs on the reader is evident in this story. Sadly, Joyce's character is portrayed as a young woman who has never been close to her mother. She wanted out from under the stifling environment of her mother and her small town. She's deeply frightened of ruining the best thing in her life if she and Wayne change the dynamics. She is the classic person who does not see what is right before her face, but everyone else had always known. When she comes to a life-changing revelation, is it too late? Wayne is a true man of faith, Christian values, and patience. I loved his personality and willingness to let Joyce go her own way. Jo Huddleston held the outcome close to her chest as she wove the threads of her story together, including anxious moments for the reader. Did Joyce wait too late to come to realization? Will all be lost because of fear and indecision? MY OPINION: Friendly Persuasion's a quick read of seventy-five pages. The story is well-written with well-developed characters, and excellent plot lines. Huddleston included many facts about the 1950's career and requirements for becoming an airline flight attendant; I found this fascinating. I did not realize to become a flight attendant that the rules and regulations were so strict. Her scenes transitioned smoothly, and the writing flowed well, and her characters are full-bodied with a deep Christian faith which is the backbone of their lives. The love and romance in Friendly Persuasion are clean and sweet. Huddleston does not rely on sex to expand the word count or carry the storyline, nor did she include fluff. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone who reads sweet clean romance novels. Jo Huddleston also included a preview of her coming book, Wait For Me. FRIENDLY PERSUASION RECOMMENDATION: STARS 4 ALSO, PLEASE NOTE In addition, I borrowed Friendly Persuasion from Kindle Unlimited and received a copy from the author. I chose to voluntarily review the book/novel with honest romance book reviews. Furthermore, reviews of any novel are dependent on the review author’s opinion. Consequently, all reviews online and on my blog, are my opinions. No one influences my voluntary romance book reviews.

    1950's Airline stewardess Joyce Williams returns to her hometown in East Tennessee for her ten-year high school reunion. At the reunion, Wayne Mahan tries to persuade Joyce that God's timing has finally brought them together as He planned. I picked this book because I figured the reader would get the experience of flying, specifically through the view of a stewardess. Didn't happen. Instead, we go to a class reunion. I enjoyed that part of the story. 1950's Airline stewardess Joyce Williams returns to her hometown in East Tennessee for her ten-year high school reunion.

    Having a best buddy is awesome but when returning home for a class reunion and that buddy has something he has always wanted to tell you he says that night. Could this be the right timing for him to say something. Is god bringing them together so His plan for their lives goes the way he planned it. Wonderful sweet romance. Well written by Jo Huddleston.

    Class reunions can be boring or the best thing that can happen. Joyce chose one pa t follow and success was hers. Wayne followed his path by they only rote letters to each other. Until the class reunion... Everything changed.

    Simple story Not my usual type read. Very simple light storyline. A bit stilted and just didn’t flow for me, but again not my usual type read.
