I have a really interesting book to share with you called Where Was God written by Sheila L. Jackson.
 
Synopsis:
Where Was God? Fayth Angelica Hope, questioned after the death of her father. Reared by a mother who could give, Cruella Deville, a run for her money as, “The Queen of Mean,” Fayth turns her back on the church, her faith, and love. She believed, no, just and merciful God would have abandoned her to the harsh brutality of her mother’s iron fist. Her emotional and spiritual scars run deep, lasting into adulthood. 
As a promising investigative reporter, she decides to change her name. Her given name of Fayth has more curses attached to it than blessings. She hopes the switch to Angelica will give her the clean slate she desires. 
Assigned to investigate financial advisor Jasion McCoy, Angelica goes in determined to expose him for embezzlement. She hopes the story will advance her career as one of the top reporters across the country. Instantly, there is an attraction. But she hides her feelings from him. After a series of missteps, broken heartedness, and rejections in her past, she buries the notion of any man, especially a man of his caliber, ever loving her. With the evidence stacked against him, she believes his only interest in her, is to keep from going to prison. 
Top-notch financial advisor Jasion McCoy is in the middle of an embezzlement scheme. When Angelica Hope shows up in his office, he knows he’s in trouble. She is one of the hottest investigative reporters in Port City and now she’s gunning for him. How can Jasion convince her that he is innocent? And how can he hold back his feeling for the woman who’s out to do him in?
Angelica had a very rough childhood and it got worse once her father died. Her mother abused her pretty bad until the authorities stepped in and took her away to live with her aunt and uncle. She became an investigative reporter and is now investigating a man whom she used to know but doesn't realize it yet.
 
Sometimes, things do work in mysterious ways and both of these people did not recognize each other from when they knew each other when they were younger. Jasion and Angelica both have problems to resolve and it doesn't help that an ex-girlfriend of Jasion's is out to destroy him.
 
Can Angelica prove he is innocent before it's too late?  Will she let someone in finally and stop blaming God for all the bad things in her life? This is a really great story for those who need to be shown that God sometimes does work in mysterious ways and he always works on his timeframe, not ours.
 
Happy Reading!
