Facing the past brings a family back together
Love's Gamble - Emily Murdoch
Another quick sweet read. I have enjoyed watching this family come back together. This is Aaron's story and his hard road home. He is misunderstood but tried to live up to his reputation. Phoebe enters his life, and despite her secrets, she brings him to face his past. They are sweet together, and I loved their journey.

This is my unsolicited review for a story that I received as a gift.

A super-cute YA romance/coming of age story.  Effortlessly readable, with characters that felt real and were likable.  A realistic look at a celebrities life from their side of the camera.  Seriously, It would suck to read about your supposed life on the front of a magazine cover at the grocery store…the price of fame, I guess… While the ending had a bit too much drama, especially when the book had stayed away from overdone drama most of the way through, I found this a refreshing read, and just what I needed.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  Yeah, I may do so soon, actually.

A feel-good storyline paired with excellent narration and I couldn't help but love this.  A coming-of-age story about trying to fit in and wanting to just give up on it ever happening.  But…the thing is when you're not looking for something…that's when you'll find it.  

 

Does the storyline always seem plausible…not all the time, but it doesn't really matter.  It's not really the point of the story.  (I mean, seriously, I would never want my 16-year-old daughter walking the streets at night by herself, and I don't care how safe the town is supposed to be.)  But hey, I really liked Elise, her quirky family and most of her adorable friends.  Along with the narrator, they all made this a rather enjoyable listen on Audio.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  Yes.

Her Baby, His Love - Lynne Marshall

Her Baby, His Love by Lynne Marshall Taylor, a nurse looked at the picture of him in the paper and it was his marriage to another... Not the first time it happened to her but still devastating. She ends up in Charity Montana to reinvent herself-pregnant and she has a place to stay in. The house she rented is in bad shape but the elderly woman is welcoming-Dixie. Native American Joe her property manager and owner of the nursery and Joe helps ex cons find work under supervision. Love hearing of the nurser and the plants and their attributes. Joe is attracted to her upon sight. Alternating chapters of Joe and then Taylor and their interests as they keep running into one another. Like how she investigates her new surroundings, all stores have woman's first names Love hearing the meditation garden-I can just imagine it and what all the symbols stand for. She opens up to him and he to her as to their past. Her ex is not yet ready to be done with her although he's married. Misunderstandings and you don't know who she's going to end up with, including her own baby...Love Joe's solution although he's staying away from her. Love knitting, don't see that very often any more and religious interjections. Toe ring-just don't get these, like tattoos. Human chain gang, novel idea! Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Their Christmas Miracle is excerpted and an author bio. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.
