    Two Thumbs Up

    Ever dread finishing a book because you just know the next one you start won't come anywhere near to being as good? This was how I felt when I read the last page of Disguised Blessing. <P>Before this, I'd read and enjoyed The Beach House, but Ms. Bockoven's latest surpasses that. I read the book in one sitting, not wanting to have to put it aside for the night to find out how it ended. The dialogue is convincing and the characters totally sympathetic and in one spot I was in tears. <P>Ms. Bockoven does an admriable job of showing that us while life may be horribly unfair, with love and hope the score can be evened. <P>I urge anyone who wants an uplifting book to read to put this one your To Buy list. As for me, I'm off to hunt up the author's backlist.

    Another heartwarming book focusing on relationships

    I love Georgia Bockoven's books and always look forward to the next one. Her books always focus on family and other close relationships, and capture my interest and attention from the very first chapter. It was interesting to read about the life of a firefighter, burn victims, and all of the things we think could never happen to us. I learned alot, as well as enjoyed getting to know each character. Georgia's books always leave me dreading the end and wanting to know more about the characters she has created. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any one who enjoys reading contemporary romance novels. Catherine, Lynda, Rick and all of the rest of the characters became a part of my life for a short period of time. I look forward to Georgia's next novel.

    wonderful contemporary relationship drama

    Catherine Miller feels good about the world as she vacations with her beloved teenage daughter Lynda and her beau Tom Adams. Adding to her feeling of euphoria is that Tom and Lynda seem to get on so well together. However, her idyllic world crashes down around her when Lynda is badly burned during a party and is flown to a Sacramento hospital for emergency treatment. Tom fails to be there for the distraught Catherine and unceremoniously hides from the woman who badly needs his support. <P>Local firefighter Rick Sawyer works closely with burn victims, making sure they receive the needed emotional support to surmount the trauma. As he works with Lynda, the duo hits it off as if they are old buddies. He also falls in love with Catherine, who is weary because her first two choices in males (Lynda¿s father and Tom) let down both herself and her daughter when they needed them. <P>DISGUISED BLESSING is a wonderful contemporary relationship drama that will enthrall readers with its message of hope. The plot centers on everyone¿s reactions to Lynda¿s trauma. All the charcaters are fully developed so that their motives and actions toward Lynda feels genuine. The lead couple makes a fine pair, but Lynda¿s plight steals the show, as the audience wants her to fully recover. Georgia Bockoven knows how to pull the strings of her audience and this novel is a virtuoso performance. <P>Harriet Klausner
