Everything about hair salon owner Bianca Morgan is supersized, from her body to her kind and outgoing personality.

Longing to meet her daughter, Bianca is devastated to learn her daughter doesn’t want to meet her. Fortunately, Bianca finds comfort in a growing friendship with single dad Daniel Serrano. Bianca has been attracted to Daniel’s smoldering Latin appeal ever since he came to Rose Island four years ago with his daughter, Joy.

This book addresses some important topics. It’s a great book that made me think. The main character is an overweight Christian woman. She is liked and respected by most people who know her. During the story she has to learn to love herself.
She gave a baby up for adoption in her senior year of high school. And long’s to know her daughter.
I really liked the book as Bianca is life like as are her struggles.

This book scared me. A story line that is so easy to imagine happening. There are a series of terrorist attacks, in order to stop the attacks FEMA is given authority that threatens America With FEMA in charge of the USA There are armed State guards that are shooting Americans, marshal law, and censoring of the press.
A great book to read.

It’s a great story that I finished in one setting. A clean romance. My only issue was the narrator spoke so soft the majority of the time the volume was on high and I still had to have total quiet around me. #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

I really enjoyed this book. Not having read the first two books I had no problem with the story line. I had a bit of a hard time at first with the narrator being male and doing female voices but was soon entranced in the story and enjoyed the way he did all the voices.
This story is a romantic historical novel. The characters are realistic and they are brought to life in the story.

I really enjoyed this book. It's a series of books all in one audiobook.
It starts with an attempted assassination on a princess. The audiobook contains the stories of the 3 sisters, a half sister, and a cousin. It's well worth the read. I had trouble turning it off it was that good.
