    This book was very straight forward and reminded me that we all struggle and have choices that can lead us astray.... God is always there.... we are then ones who don't always see him, not the other way around. Good book!

    ...... by the stories I hear in this series. Choices are made every day, but how often do we really listen and wait for God to help us with the right answer. Good, good book.

    I was emotionally invested in this book and I am so glad I listed to it. I see no end to wanting to hear stories about this great family and how just like us all have our share of secrets and struggles.

    Just continue with Karen Kingsbury and you will not be disappointed. I am already worried about what I will do when I finish all 3 series on the Baxter family. You get to know these characters and want to stay in the know about their lives and where they will be later on.

    Luke, golden boy and the Baxter family's only son, has walked away from everything that mattered most to him: his faith, his family, and Reagan, his only love. Devastated by the events of September 11, 2001, Luke decides that life is random, faith a fraud, and God a fantasy. A baby is about to be born, but with Reagan a thousand miles away in New York City, Luke has no idea he's the father. Now, though, someone in his family learns the truth.

    This is the 3rd one in the series and it was just as good as the others. You get to know these family members so well and can't wait to see what twists and turns their lives take, all the while seeing them draw closer to God.

    If 4.5 was possible that would be my score. It is so nice to listen to stories about Christians who struggle the same way we all do. This book didnt concentrate on one sibling, but the whole family. I am moving on to the next one. I AM HOOKED!

    A Betrayal . . . Kari Baxter Jacobs is furious, hurt, and confused. Her husband, Tim, a respected professor of journalism, is having an affair with a student. Stunned, Kari returns home to the Baxter family to sort things out. But when an old flame shows up, she is more confused than ever.

    Debbie says: "Great Story Based on Christian Principles"
    "Big fan already!"
    Overall

    Loved this book and can't wait to hear the stories of all the other siblings in the other 'R" series by Karen Kingsbury. There are great Christian traits seen in characters, but it isn't preachy. It's enough to make you look at yourself and think of how you could improve. I am downloading the next one today. One complaint would be that the story seemed to wrap up a bit quickly, whereas the rest of the book was more detailed, but still loved it.

    Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

    Erin says: "Entertaining & Edgy"
    "Great for my first audio book"
    Overall

    Could be a 5 but I have nothing to compare it to. Some foul language so that could be an issue, but not alot and it was a great story. I was eager to for the next day so I could listen again. I will definitely get the next Lucas Davenport book when it comes out.
