Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kyle (The Christian Girl's Guide to Style) moves from tween girl writing in her debut adult novel with the unlikely scenario of a 35- year-old love letter found by 23-year-old Claire James in her recently deceased mother's '72 Volkswagen glove compartment. After Claire loses her waitress job and is kicked out of her sister's apartment, she heads to Capitola, Calif., in search of the author of the love letter, having become obsessed with ferreting him out. After a series of clunky mishaps, Claire lands a job and a place to stay, where she conveniently meets up with her mother's long-lost love. Part mystery, part comedy, the story places Claire in the middle of numerous unlikely emotionally charged situations with the residents of Capitola. Determined to unravel the secret behind the love letter, Claire doesn't give up until the truth is told. Kyle's interweaving of so many characters is implausible and contrived, and she fails to connect readers emotionally with Claire and her search. (Apr.)
Library Journal
After her mother's death, 23-year-old Claire James finds a 35-year-old love letter in the glove compartment of her mom's 1972 Volkswagen. Following a series of mishaps that leave her jobless and homeless, Claire travels to California to find the author of the letter. VERDICT This first foray by an author of tween fiction into the adult market is haphazard at best. Characters are never fully developed, and the story line seems implausible. Readers interested in reading about family secrets would be better served by the works of Colleen Coble or Jane Gardam's Faith Fox.

    Surprising

    I got this as a free ebook, and thought why not read it... I was very surprised that I liked it. I've never read anything by Sherry Kyle before.

    Claire is a lost soul, trying to find her place in the world. I can totally relate to that. I didn't find the issue to of Christianity to be thrown in my face hard at all. It was in my opinion very subtle. I personally LOVED the way Sherry had God working in every character's lives to bring them to the place they ALL belonged.

    This book gives you the romance that I love, the redemption that I think we all crave, and the acceptance that I think we all desire.

    There are discussion questions at the end of the book, so this would be a good book for a christian reading group.

    I don't think you will be disappointed reading this book.

    Truly enjoyed the story and the authors writing style. She kept the book moving along without a lot of drab details to slow it down. My kind of book and I will be looking for more Sherry Kyle books.

    A beach read with heart

    The cover screams cute beach read, and Delivered with Love is definitely that - you can smell the surf and the interior of that '72 VW. But it's so much more. Sherry Kyle writes from the heart. I cared deeply for the characters as they grappled with identity, forgiveness, and whether or not to reveal their own transgressions. This is a touching story, and I'm looking forward to more novels from Sherry Kyle.

    Nice Easy Read

    I would have liked to have seen some of the secondary characters fkeshed out a bit more. Especially Tom and Mark. It was almost as though the writer was going to make them creeper but she did not go there. Mystery aspect was good. A lot of it wa tiied up into way too neat bows. I thiink she needed more character description as well. And more fleshing out if characters. About another 50 pages would have helped! Religious aspect did not affect me until the very end where it became very preachy. A nice, light read.

    Witty and sweet

    This was a humble book. It was a little hard to get into at first, but once you do it flys! It does have God weaved subtly throughout the storyline, but if you can look past that it is still a good read. I am Christian myself so it only made me love the book more. I suggest giving the book a try!

    Refreshing

    At first i really wasn't sure how much i was going to like this book but as i kept reading i just loved the story. It was very refreshing to actually read a book that is christian based but at the same time it wasn't forced. The values and the morality of believing and having faith fit well into the sory line of this book. It was a very nice read.

    Great read...

    This book flows really well. I loved the story and the characters. Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to do...especially to forgive ourselves. Mistakes happen and if we want forgiveness for our sins, our mistakes...then we have to forgive others. God bless.
