    • "The Isaac Project" is an incredibly charming contemporary romance between a woman at the end of her rope and a man who makes a life-changing choice.Luke… I must confess. I have a bit of a book crush on Luke. Once he sets his mind to something, he doesn’t let anything get in his way! Even before he realizes his feelings for Becky, he is determined to woo her. His exquisite yet manly tenderness with her is palpable and brought tears to my eyes more than once. I thought that the times he was w [...]

    • This was my first book by this author and all I have to say is"wow". This book was absolutely incredible. I loved the modern twist on mail order brides and how she incorporated the story of Isaac and Rachael. This book was both sad and funny. I found found myself on the brink of tears reading this book, tears from sadness and tears of laughing too much for too long. Although I was somewhat lost at the beginning the author quickly filled me in. I loved how realistic the characters were, I felt th [...]

    • Earlier this week I was scanning my Kindle for a contemporary book to read and I came across The Isaac Project, which I purchased a little while back. It was exactly what I was looking for!This story really had it all for me. It was a contemporary romance that was actually built on the story of Isaac and Rebekah in the Bible. The author did such a great job of writing a modern day marriage of convenience story in a way that seemed realistic. It was written in first person and after reading just [...]

    • This is the first book I've read by this author and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The writing for Luke is spot on. I could really sense the man's perspective. I wanted to shake Becky a couple of times. I understand where she was coming from and all she was dealing with but I kept thinking "this was your idea"! But that is how life is sometimes. The epilogue (so sweet) was a pleasant surprise, and just the icing on the cake. This one is definitely a "fairy tale" story but believable enough to love. Cu [...]

    • My thoughts:Becky and Luke. Sigh. These two are a match made in heaven. Literally. When we first meet Becky, she’s joyful, optimistic, and in love. That doesn’t last long. At all. And it’s when her boyfriend is caught cheating on her that her insecurities—ones that I think a lot of us women can relate to—really come out. Through heartache, misunderstanding, and pride—yep, that nasty thing—Becky has such a beautiful character arc and growth that results in breaking down that wall o [...]

    • This debut novel is a modern day retelling of the story of Rebekah and Isaac. While it had some cute moments, I had a hard time believing in an arranged marriage taking place in the given circumstances.

    • Becky has a problem. Her boyfriend just cheated on her and she needs a groom pronto. Her grandfather is dying of leukemia and wants to see her married. Knowing there isn't much time she turns to the scriptures and comes across the story of Rebekah and Isaac. That is her solution. She needs to find a worthy man who she could grow to love. She entrusts her best friend to find her the man. If you don't have your BFF to watch your back, who do you have?Luke is a good man who feels compelled to liste [...]

    • This book started out very rocky for me. I was literally even thinking of not moving past page 5. But I am so glad I presses on. Once her writing was firing in all cylinders, I really got into the book. I enjoyed reading a loosely backward version of Isaac and Rebekah. Very creative. It was my first book from Saran Monzon but will not be my last.I smiled, cried and giggled like a love sick teen at a very romantic bit although there are many.Luke is a definitely book boyfriend matierial. Loved hi [...]

    • Slow start, for me I prefer interaction between the main players as soon as possible. This took some time in this story. Cute read, and hard to put down, I always enjoy a marriage of convenience story. Given, there's not many of them in the Contemporary market - and this twist on the Old Testament, Isaac & Rebekah story was clever.

    • OH! I can so relate Rebekah with her independent personality. I enjoyed watching as she and Luke met and grew in their relationship. This story is a wonderful reminder that the Lord does work in all things to bring about our good.

    • I love when a story is fun, easy to read, and yet packed with faith. Sarah Monzon's debut novel delivers all of those, and I can't wait to find time to read it again! The Isaac Project is at the top of my favorite books for 2015. And the cover! Beautiful! Prefectly represents the well delivered story within, as well as the beautiful writing style. Definitely a must read on my shelf!

    • This is an adorable take on Isaac and Rebecca's engagement! It's a sweet, fun read, but it also emphasizes how true love is a choice. You can't help but fall in love with Rebecca's "Isaac."

    • I saw a really glowing review on The Isaac Project a few years back and have been wanting to read it ever since. It recently was offered for free on a Kindle deal and I snatched it up. Unfortunately, it fell far short of my expectations.I loved the concept of the book. Based on the story of Isaac and Rebekah in the Bible (Genesis 24, for those interested), Becky asks her best friend to arrange a marriage for her so her dying grandfather can see her settled before he passes away. If you’re a re [...]

    • (3.5 Stars) When Becky discovers that her boyfriend is a cheater, she's devastated. It's just not her day when a short time later, she discovers that her grandpa (Poppy), the man who raised her, is dying. His only regret is not seeing her married and happy. After searching for some measure of comfort, Becky remembers the biblical story of Rebekah and Isaac and is determined to have her friend find her a husband in a similar manner.The premise of this story is fun and interesting--almost an archa [...]

    • I loved this book! I know I know I say this about all the books I read but on this one I just can't help myself!!!! I really did like this book!!I can't imagine living in an arranged marriage but Becky and Luke managed to make a go of it with God's help. I think this is why I enjoyed the book so much! It is because it has God and horses in it. Poppy is an interesting character in my mind. In some ways he reminds me of my own grandfather. Always there if I needed someone to talk to or just make m [...]

    • There is no one more important to Becky Sawyer than her grandfather, Poppy. But his health is failing and she's not sure how long he'll be with her. His only wish is to live long enough to see Becky get married and know that she'll be taken care of. Unfortunately, Becky's boyfriend was less than faithful to her, so he's gone. Becky's friend hatches an idea: she'll find Becky a husband. An arranged marriage. How will they know who the right guy is? They'll pray for a sign.Luke Masterson is a well [...]

    • This book surprised me. It started out as a light-hearted read, cute with a foreshadowing of drama. The ex wasn't in it long enough for you to get emotionally invested, and her grandfather's illness seems a thing in the distant future. I couldn't help but like Becky - sweet, a little naive - someone I'd like to hang around with. Luke reacted to the project exactly how you'd expect, which was nice.But once the characters were introduced, the story took a turn for the serious. It had a depth that [...]

    • Usually contemporary romance is not one of my favorite genres. But I'm well aware of the fact that every now and then you're fortunate enough to stumble across a story with characters and a tale so beautiful and unique it will stay with you forever.Becky and Luke's story was one of those tales for me. I couldn't put it down until I reached the end. The characters were great and I loved the heroine, Becky. Also, the romance was so sweet!Overall, The Isaac Project was a wonderful read!

    • A fun read with a strong Biblical parallel. Loved reading the book from his and her perspectives. I think it was a unique way to write the book. Loved the character development. Can't wait to read more from Sarah!

    • 3.5 stars Christian fiction. I mostly really liked this book. Some parts I didn't jive with me but overall this was an interesting retelling of a bible story. I did love the overall message that love is a choice.

    • Love should be this way.Loved it! If we all had a great Eliezer in our lives, and waited on God, things would be different and happier for us all. Very well written. Be encouraged!

    • Love the idea of this. It was a sweet, sweet romance and I loved Luke!! He was so sweet to Rebekah!! She drove me a touch crazy with all her trust issues and insecurities, but it all ended well!!

    • About the Book:After catching her boyfriend cheating on her, Becky Sawyer decides she’s had it with love. This declaration puts her in quite the predicament, however, when she learns that not only is her beloved grandfather who raised her dying, but his last wish is to see her happily married. Turning to scripture for solace, Becky comes across the story of the deep love and commitment shared by Isaac and Rebekah even though they had an arranged marriage. Her mind made up, she asks her best fr [...]

    • Sweet RomanceI loved the idea of the Isaac Project! Following God is always a good choice in a marriage! Did I sob? Yes, a couple of times. I was incredibly concerned about Becky when she totally left, because she refused to ask him about what happened. Secrets are never a good idea! Then to have more bad stuff happen. So much sadness! But, there was a happy ending!

    • InterestingA modern day Rebecca and Issac story with role reversals. She is trying to grant Pappy's last wish and he thinks the whole thing is crazy! After much prayer, he follows the prompting to marry this independent and skidish cowgirl. Before long a sweet story unfolds.

    • So, what do you think? Far-fetched? The idea of arranged marriage in this age sure seems "off the rocker", but The Isaac Project gave us a story that very well reinforced the words, "match made in heaven." I've heard some hype regarding this book long before I read it, and in line with what I typically do, I go in not reading any reviews or even the book description. What an extraordinary story! What a project! Pulling from the story of Isaac & Rebekah, Becky, asks her best friend, Lisa to b [...]

    • I think the story idea is very original and it was fairly entertaining. I honestly had very high hopes for this novel and it fell a bit flat. I think a lot of it was too rushed. Like the few times the ex was brought back into the picture, there was just no reason to and it felt forced. Additionally, some of the writing seemed border line fan fiction-esque. Those things I can normally look over, but what really hit me quite hard was what the hero in the story thought a desperate woman looked like [...]

    • An arranged marriage? In this century?When Becky Sawyer decides to seek a husband through the inspiration of the story of Isaac and Rebecca, things get a little crazy. But no one could have predicted how quickly things would work out.Will Becky and her chosen spouse marry? Will everything work out? Will they live happily ever after?Read. The. Book.Just do it. No, it doesn’t all work out the way I expected it to; nor was it easy. But I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end. Read it. Y [...]
