This book was okay. This is the 2nd book I have read from this author and maybe her books are just not for me. She is a good writer, I am just not loving her books.
What I liked: I really liked Amy’s kids and her oldest Bekah was having some spiritual issues with being Mennonite. Parker and Adrianna made me smile. Also I was glad to see Tim work through his grief over the loss of his wife and child as well as face his past with his parents.
What I did not like: Now I don’t want to bash this book but at the same time I want to be truthful. I found both Amy and Tim kind of boring. Its not that I did not like the characters its just they where kind of flat. Amy was sweet but at the same time by the end of the book I really did not feel like I knew her any better then the beginning and she had not real spunk. Tim did have to deal with more issues and came across as better developed but again the storyline seemed to drag on at times. Also the romance so so. The spark was very dim and the ending was sweet but I felt like the characters really did not interact enough to get to that point they did at the end.
Over all this was a so so book and honestly I would not tell someone to read it. Maybe to some it would be a good book and maybe I have gotten to used to female characters who come across independent and spunky. The story was well written and the ending made me smile but I was very glad to be done with this book and move on. Every person had a few authors who you just can’t get into their books and this might be one for me. Read other reviews and decide for yourself.
