    Bookends

    Before this book I had attempted to read one of Liz Curtis Higgs' books, but couldn't finish for lack of interest in the story. Then I picked up Three Weddings and a Giggle (totally suggest reading it) and loved her novella in the book. I loved it so much that I went back and found Bookends at my library.

    I don't know what I expected really when I read it, but this book was just wonderful. I loved the storyline and while at times I told myself that the plot should seem more boring than it did, I realized that the writing was what made it so good and intriguing.

    Liz Curtis Higgs is so great at mixing in a level of reality into everything she writes, that it seems as if the characters could be your close friends telling you the story. It seems real! At moments it almost didn't seem as if I was reading a book. I loved her writing and thought it added so much to the story.

    Bookends is funny, dramatic, passionate, romantic...everything! I would totally suggest this book to anyone interested in a funny Christian romance.

    Not your typical romance novel...

    I enjoyed this book probably more-so than I had expected. It's a romantic comedy sure to fill you with deep emotions, real-life situations, and make you laugh aloud. It's a great book to read with a church book club and you can dive deep enough to get spiritual influance or just enjoy the book for all the other fun aspects it will provide. Give the book a chance and you will not regret it.

    Intelligent, witty and utterly delightful

    I don't know when I've read such a delightful book! Jonas and Emilie and a whole cast of other wonderful characters wormed their way into my heart and charmed me like I haven't been charmed in a while. Incredible writing and a message of faith seamlessly interwoven...this book has it all!

    Highly Recommended Lighthearted Romance

    With fully developed characters in a modern setting, Higgs keeps the competing interests of history professor Emilie and developer Jonas as the major conflict. As the two slip and slide their way toward a romantic interest, both characters change and develop toward a satisfying end.

    Love her writing style

    I really enjoy Higgs and was pleased to find another of her books. This was very different from others I had read and a pleasant diversion.
