Publisher's Summary

Longing, book three in the Bailey Flanigan Series, picks up where Learning ended. After a long and lonely silence from Cody Coleman, Bailey Flanigan becomes closer to her one-time Hollywood co-star, Brandon Paul. Nights on the town in New York City and long talks on the balcony of Brandon's Malibu Beach home make Bailey dizzy with new feelings and cause her to wonder if her days with Cody are over forever. Meanwhile, Cody's work coaching a small-town football team has brought him and his players national attention. In the midst of the celebration and success, Cody finds himself much closer to a woman who seems to better understand him and his new life. Even so, never does much time go by without Bailey and Cody experiencing deep feelings of longing for each other, longing both for the past and for answers before they can move forward. Will an unexpected loss be the turning point for Cody? Will Cody and Bailey find a way back together again for the first time in more than a year? And if they do, will their brief time together be enough to help them remember all they've been longing for?

    "Disappointing"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Longing to be better than the print version?

    I thoroughly enjoy all of Kingsbury's books, but this series has really been disappointing for me. After getting to know Bailey in the

    "Where's the UNLIKE button?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Possibly. This was by far my least favorite book by Karen Kingsbury but as with all the books, the life changing message out weighed the bad.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Karen Kingsbury? Why or why not?

    Of course! She normally tells wonderful stories!


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    Bailey's voice was great. It just matched the picture I have painted of her in my mind. My least favorite was Brandon...he just seemed like a child. Not to mention, Karen, why oh why did Bailey let him keep calling her BABY everyother sentence? That nickname really didn't match her character at all!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Decisions.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very sad and more than a little suprised at the direction this book went. I felt like readers were led down one path for the last several years and then suddenly expected to be happy embracing an entirely different situation out of the blue. I hung on as long as I could waiting for the tide to shift but I finally got so tired of wondering that I lost patience and Googled the ending of the last book. I was suprised and so dissappointed in how things were going to end that for the first time ever in my history of reading Karen's books, I literally lost any interest in the final book.I still haven't read it, even though it has been a few weeks since I finished Longing.

    "Too drug out."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The Bailey Flanigan Series, although I liked it , was just plain too long.


    Would you recommend Longing to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe


    What aspect of the narrators’s performance would you have changed?

    I felt like she just wants to sell more books, but unfortunately it tends to loose ones interest.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, because you can't get to the point of the series.
