What is better than to read a story you enjoy? Well, I can tell you that without hesitation: 4 stories in one! This eBook is such a great deal, as it is 4 novels in 1. Instead of purchasing all of the separate novels, I choose to get all of them in one, as I did not want to be interrupted in reading the fantastic life story of the main character. One of my friends tipped me that the Laura Palmer Series of novels would be something I would enjoy. Interestingly, I started with the 4th novel, just before I came across this 4-in-1, and therefore I decided to stop the 4th, and start from the beginning. The author has an addictive way of writing, as I just could not keep my eyes off my Nookcolor to stop reading. There is lots of humoristic novelty embedded in the story lines, and at the same time, the story is quite serious in such a way that it touched the life's of the other characters, as well as the readers. Although Laura Pedersen was an unknown author to me, these 4 novels have made me one of her newest fans. I almost cannot wait to read any of her other work, and secretly I am hoping for another Hallie Palmer release, maybe some in-between untold stories?
This is actually 4 ebooks in one. The stories are all well written and very entertaining. The author does an excellant job of writing these stories and I would recommend them to a friend. Once you read this I'm sure that you'll agree with me as well.
This is the Hallie Palmer four book series containing the books: Beginner¿s Luck, Heart¿s Desire, The Big Shuffle, and Best Bet. Beginner¿s Luck touches on the main character Hallie Palmer who has one dream which is to make to Vegas. This series touches on her journey to get there and all of the issues she deals with along the way. Heart¿s Desire continues with Hallie finishing up her year in college and more of her life¿s struggles. The Big Shuffle continues again with Hallie¿s story as she experiences her father¿s death leaving her mother in deep sadness. The final book in the series is called Best Bet resuming the story of what happened now that her father has died leaving behind ten children and money is tight for the Palmer household. Halley learns she is four credits short from graduating from college and she is forced to leave home which carries another fun journey. I have read all of the books and every single book was humorous and touching at the same time.
A great read for any age these four books in one are hilarious, charming and life-affirming. Good for the beach, a long plane ride/car trip, or just anytime you're feeling down. But be warned, you will laugh out loud.
Buy this book. Read it. You will be laughing hysterically through each page. And yet at the same time you will feel a mix of emotions as you follow the journey of Hallie Palmers life. Love, Lost, Sadness, Happiness, Selfishness, Caring, Giving, and Taking. Hallie is just like anyone you'd meet on the street. Which I think helps people connect with her more. They can be like "I've done that" or "That is something I would do too." Having each book in the same location is great because you don't have to put the book down to start the next one. Just flip the page and continue on the journey. A very recommended book for anyone that wants a story to lighten their day. Each book is fairly long but is an easy read. I loved it.
This is a great deal for such a splendid bundle of books. It follows the exciting life of Hallie Palmer from her teenage years to adulthood. The story is touching, deep, and has many lessons in it. It develops perfectly and you find yourself dying to know what is going to happen next. You will also find that each story is laugh out loud funny. The characters are absolutely fantastic. You will instantly love them. One of the best things about this series is how real everything is. The characters have their own personalities and are believable. This is an amazing series and everyone should give it a shot!
Paid for but can not open to read. This is the second book that this has happened it.
