    Didn't want to put it down

    This was a creatively written story about a woman and her family. Her character was so real and moving. I didn't want the book to end!

    I really liked this book

    A story about one family in the midst of their daughter's wedding. It has love, crisis, lost dreams, hope, and humor. I found it to be a real page turner.

    So Real!

    This book illistrated true human emotions in everyday circumstances. I found myself in these characters and hated to close the book when I was finished! I can't wait to see what Spaugh will deliver next!

    Cheers for 'Something Blue'

    This is a beautifully written story of a young woman's realization that her dreams of a picture-perfect life will never come true, and really can't come true for anyone. The author vividly captures the character's thoughts and personality, and by the end of the novel, you feel as though you are saying goodbye to a new friend you've just become very close to.
