Sing a New Song is a great debut novel for this author. The storyline is both thoughtful and moving. Michelle Lindo Rice creates characters that jump off of the page and into your heart. A page turner until the very end!

This is a great book. A friend of mine recommended it to me and I'm glad she did. This is the first book I've read in the genre of Christian fiction. I have to say that even though it's in that category, it really seems like it falls into other genres as well. It has elements of romance, comedy and suspense. The author handles some really difficult subject matter with delicacy and connects to characters in a way that makes a reader feel like they are real people rather than just characters in a book. It is a real page turner and as well as a story with an inspirational message.

I can't believe this is a debut novel. Great characters, original plot, and a soul satisfying message.

This book will bring you to tears. Ms Lindo-Rice has written such a compelling read. I could not put it down, and she made each of the Characters appear so real. As a young girl Tiffany Knightly was betrayed by someone who was supposed to protect her, her step-father. When her mother also betrays her, and blames it all on Tiffany, what can she do. She acts out like a lot of teens would...she becomes pregnant, and does not know which of the four teens are the father. How could a mother not be there for her child? Makes me sick!! Tiffany has been there every step of the way for her daughter Karlie. She has made the big time as a famous singer, and they are not hurting financially, but she has been given the worse news you could get. Tiffany is dying of lung cancer! How do you tell your fifteen year old daughter you are not going to be there for her? She certainly cannot depend on the mother who betrayed her. She does decide to go back to Hempstead NY, and look into who is her daughter's Dad?? Of the four, a few of them have made a good life, there is one, who we hope is not her Dad. One of them Thomas, did marry Tiffany and thinks he is her Dad. We get to the core of these families, and Tiffany touches all of them. Also she is reunited with her friend Myra, and unknown to Myra her husband Neil. Neil has had contact with Tiffany for many years. It is platonic, but loving relationship. This is a story of a strong love of God, men and woman who are tempted, but have a strong bond with The Almighty. We also hope during this story, that Tiffany rebuilding her relationship with God, will be healed. Yes we do find out who is Karlie's father, and there is an epilogue, so all is wrapped up. Enjoy! I received this book through Write Now Literary Virtual Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.

Tiffany Knightly wants to get her business in order in Sing A New Song by Michelle Lindo Rice. Tiffany has done well for herself with her singing career, which made taking care of her daughter, Karlie, easy. When Tiffany learns she is dying from cancer, Tiffany wants to make sure her daughter, Karlie, is taken care of. Tiffany decides to move back to her hometown to face her past so that her daughter can have a future. The only problem with Tiffany’s happily ever after is that she has to approach four men from her past to find out who is Karlie’s biological father. Tiffany knows this has to be done in order to see if Karlie’s father will be able to properly take care of her when Tiffany is gone. In the process of rectifying her past issues and mistakes, Tiffany rekindles friendships and faces fears that she has worked hard to forget. Tiffany soon finds out that she may be in a test that will strengthen her faith or have her turning away from God’s plan. Sing A New Song was a compelling story of a mother trying to do right by her daughter. It should not shock me that a mother would wait so many years to acknowledge the father of her child since it happens every day. I applaud the author for sharing a wonderful story of forgiveness and faith. I enjoyed the characters, plot and anticipation of finding out who was the father and this kept my attention until the end. I would have never guessed that Sing A New Song was a debut novel from this author’s writing style. I look forward to reading more of her work. I recommend Sing A New Song to others.

Sing a New Song has something for everyone, Drama, comedy Romance.  I enjoyed reading hard to believe this is the author first novel it seem so well put together. Having watch my mother stuffer from a lung disease not too long ago I could relate to Tiffany.  There were parts that I got a bit teary eyed.  Miss Rice really allows her readers to feel the characters in her book .  I look forward to reading more of her work soon.

Tiffany Knightly is a well-known singer from back in the day. A bad cough that refused to go away prompted Tiffany to seek medical treatment. She was diagnosed with lung cancer. Chemotherapy and radiation did not work and the cancer was rapidly spreading throughout her body. With the devastating news that she has less than a year to live, Tiffany decides to confront her past head on and go back to where it all began home, in the very house that changed the course of her life. Tiffany knows that it will be hard to tell her 15-year-old daughter Karlie that she is dying. Needing to set things straight, Tiffany must also let Karlie know that the man that she thinks is her father just may not be. Wanting to know that her daughter will be emotionally and physically taken care of, Tiffany is determined to find out who is the father. “Sing a New Song” by Michelle Lindo-Rice was an okay debut. I say this because the storyline from the very beginning was too predictable. I was actually reading this book with someone else and we both guessed early on how the entire story was going to play out. There were scenes within the story that had you literally shaking your head like, Seriously?! There were also gaps within the story. For instance, there is a part where Tiffany comes home from the hospital and a few paragraphs later it’s 3 weeks later. Not to mention there is a scene near the end of the novel that was just too much and not needed. It was kind of like the author said ‘let me throw this major thing into the mix,’ when all it did was actually come out like an added filler to the story. It just was not necessary to the storyline. All-in-all, this was an okay debut from this author. Had the story not have been as predictable it could have been rated a little higher. Reviewed by LeonaR
