Sweet

Nice story. Got a little confused at first because I didn’t realize that there were 2 different couples, I thought it was going back it time. But caught on. The author must be involved with a 12 step program because there’s a lot of principals in the story that come from the program but also based on forgiveness which if God can forgive us we should be able to forgive others. I liked the females voice but starting out with the male voice threw me. I didn’t care for his voice to begin off with. During the story it was ok. But there must be other smoother rhythmic better sounding out there. I noticed there’s lots of good female voices but not to many men’s.
Overall I liked it. I’m just not used to nice happy endings. We need more of these!

Love this series!

I have been thrilled with each of these books. The characters are so real, the subject enthralling and I can't get enough. What a talented writer to be able to have this many books in a series and keep the readers grabbing the next one. Which is exactly where I am headed.
