Publisher's Summary

Inspirational Readers Choice winner Cathy Marie Hake has written dozens of compelling novels, including Letter Perfect.

Although Laney's been sweet on Galen for a while, he's always considered her his best friend's tag-along sister. But when Galen finally sees Laney as the wife of his dreams, a vile lie shatters his hopes and a leveled shotgun repays his kindness - on the very day he plans to pop the question.

Bittersweet by Cathy Marie Hake

This was one of the most enjoyable books that I have listened to. Cathy puts so much of Christ into her books which I love.
I am trying to read all of hers.

Wonderful book!

This was another great story by Cathy Hake. So many twists and turns in this story. I just knew everything was not going to come out the way I wanted it to but everything came together wonderfully. Narrator did a great job.

Cathy Marie Hake books are the most spiritual novels I’ve read!

This author’s books are very well written and also teach Christian truths and values. I’ve ‘read’ many authors who toss in some ‘Christ talk’ but the Christian theme is woven into her stories in a remarkable way—I believe.

Excellent Christian Love —Better Than I Could Do

When the love of her life is forced to marry another, Laney learns to love others far better than I could do. Galen and his mother go beyond what I would do. But the story shows God’s plan in a beautiful way. Excellent characters and plot. I’m glad I tried one more of Cathy Marie Hale’s books. Narrator is perfect.

this story is all emotion, and next to no action.

the story war narrated fine, but was pretty much all about emotions and had next to no action, which was disappointing.

My favorite!

Out of 7 (all 5 of her Gooden series and Letter Perfect and this one) Cathy Marie Hake's books this is my favorite. This book display's God's redemptive love is such an amazing way.
The narrator, Stina Nielson, did a great job. I enjoyed her narrative skills in Forevermore too.
I hope Cathy Marie Hake has more like this one.
