    What a great holiday read! The characters are believable, down-t

    What a great holiday read! The characters are believable, down-to-earth, and funny!  The story encourages me to use my gifts and talents to bring joy to my life while blessing others. There truly is no time like the present to enjoy life to the fullest! Kudos to Parker for an entertaining and thought-provoking novella!

    Great Read

    Enjoyed reading this book. I think everyone can relate to one of the characters in this book. I liked how the book showed Natalie using her gift to help others and how she balanced the loving yet complexed relationships in her life.

    Anxiously Waiting for Book Two

    I quickly fell in love with the first of Gifted Natalie series and I cannot wait to find out what happens next. Parker is a brilliant story teller, creating characters who instantly capture your heart. You will find yourself laughing, crying--and growing right along with each one.
