Publisher's Summary

An unusual friendship forms between a young history professor and the grandmother of one of his loveliest students. This lighthearted clean Christian romance is set in the rolling hills of the Palouse, in the university town of Moscow, Idaho. When master's student Katherine King receives an unsatisfactory grade on an exam, she learns two valuable lessons: don't lose your cool with a young, handsome professor and, two, don't tell your grandmother about it. Part one and two are combined in this audiobook.

Very Christian Romance

TARGET AUDIENCE: This is a clean, predictable Christian romance. Heavy in both the Christianity and the Romance. This is a great book if you are “traditional Christian,” would not necessarily recommend to my Mormon, 7th day Adventist, Catholic or Jehovah’s Witness. Also if you are looking for a book with mild to moderate levels of spirituality, this also may not be for you.

PROFANITY AND SEX: None, of course. Thank you.

STORY LINE: Young student struggles with her attraction to her professor who is only a few years older than she is. She struggles with her feelings knowing that a relationship with a professor is taboo, plus how dare she give him a B?

NARRATOR: Does very good at separating the voices. Really enjoyed listening to this book.

OVERALL: Although I knew that this was a Christian romance, not all Christian books are created the same. The story line was great, but to me it was a little over the top on the religious parts of the book. With that caveat I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. I have given it a 5/5 star rating.

fun, unique storyline!

Sherri Schoenborn Murray’s Sticky Notes is creative and original. Her characters are real, with quirks that make me smile and little annoying habits that just make it that much easier to forget that they are actually fictitious… and not people I know in real life.

This story centers around the adorable Ethel King, who lives near the university in Idaho where her granddaughter Katherine (who lives with her and is also a star within these pages) is pursuing her master’s degree. It opens with Katherine contesting a grade she received from her handsome, young professor, Quinn Benton. When Ethel finds out about Katherine’s less-than-gracious behavior, Mr Benton becomes the recipient of a surprise visit from Ethel.. and a box of her special cinnamon rolls. Soon an unlikely friendship has sprouted between Ethel and Quinn, much to Katherine’s dismay.

Even though I had suspicions about where the story was going to end up, it kept me surprised and wanting to hear “just one more chapter”. I’m happy with Sticky Notes. Well, except that I wanted more! 🙂

I believe this book takes place in approximately 1999, although it was published in 2014. So take that however you’d like… I wouldn’t classify it as historical fiction, although it’s really not quite modern either. 🙂 It works very well logistically for this story, as there are a lot of communication aspects that would change the story details if it took place at another time — either earlier or later.

Well this book has to be a cinnamon roll. No question. And I think it fits because it’s sweet and has substance.

Clean and Sweet

I really liked this book and looked forward to listening to it every chance I could get. Really wish the ending were a little different, though.. I so would have enjoyed hearing more of what the main characters were thinking in the end and maybe even a little of their life in the future...

The end was a little disappointing

It was a funny good read. I enjoyed it. The ending was however disappointing. It makes sense and following the story line I just found it rather blah compared to the rest of the story.

Cute and Fun

A great listen. Funny and heartwarming too. Not quite the ending I wanted but I guess that means it kept me on my toes.

Fun Romance

A fun book to read and listen to. Catherine is a college student frustrated by a lower grade than she expected. Marching into her handsome professors office with her feelings about the grade is the start of this love / hate(hate isn't really the right word)... relationship. Catherine goes home and tells her grandma (whom she lives with while attending the university). Grandma tells Catherine that if she takes a batch of Sweet Cinnamon rolls, this will fix her grade for sure! Catherine refuses, so grandma goes instead! The professor enjoys the rolls and even goes as to eat them in class, much to Catherine's horror! Ms. Schoenborn did a very good job with her character development. I would recommend this book to all audiences interested in a good clean romance.

I loved it. Great story and a lot of fun.

It's been awhile since a book made me laugh outloud. I was sad to see it end but enjoyed my time with these endearing characters.

Grand Ma takes the Cake

If you could sum up Sticky Notes in three words, what would they be?

Funny and a little judgmental??

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the scenes with Grand Ma. She was just so sweet and innocent with a little spunk.

Any additional comments?

Overall I give this story 3.5 to 4 stars. Narrator, Valerie Gilbert seemed to have fun with this narration. I did not like how she said Grand Ma vs granma or gram-ma. The articulation of the 'd' sound made the term of endearment cold.

I have mixed feelings about the story content. Why would a professor invite a graduate student to a social event where her professor would be present? Why would a relationship between them be encouraged? Quinn, Carl, Joe, Katherine all seem to judge others by "their covers". It's odd when Katherine is forced to issue her various apologies in the story. In general, Katherine seems to run hot/cold...so does Quinn. The narrator, kept me listening. I thought Grandma Ethel stole the show and made this story enjoyable.

Sweet

Received this book for free in order to get an honest review. I enjoyed the clean sweet characters of the book. The characters had depth and where very likeable. The bible references where good as well. No bad language or content in the book at all.

Sticky Notes: Ethel King Series, Book 1

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”



I like the overall plot of grad student and her professor being attracted to each other, but must wait a few weeks to pursue a relationship.


This is a clean romance that may or may not happen. Benton and Katherine are supposedly Christians. They are both childish, and play games with each other, using other people in the process. They randomly prayed asking God's will, but went about with what they wanted. The plot drug along so s...l...o...w...l...y, could of been condensed down and pace picked up.

The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.
