Never Say Never, Daily Texas Series #3
All the right stuff for a fun read
Captivating characters thrown together by a hurricane. All the ingredients for a wonderful read, and Lisa Wingate delivers it with some down home humor undergirded by wisdom. Inspirational and fun, Novel Journey and I recommend this book for a really good read.

Never Say Never
This is a book with an exciting adventure of a ride. All of the characters are deeply thought out and connect in ways that show just how small the world may be. I was disappointed that it ended so abruptly. I would have liked to have known more, but hopefully this won't be the last in this series.
As a reviewer, I do feel the need to point out that this is not a Lori Wick book. The main characters start kissing pretty early, but other than that, it does not go any further in the physical intimacy department.

Natural Disaster, Love, & Texas - 5 Stars!
This book is part of the âDaily, Texasâ Series by author Lisa Wingate.
The book centers around a natural disaster and how it effects the lives of Kai, Kemp, and Donetta as well as the other residents of Daily, Texas. Kai, is a cruise ship employee not sure where life is leading her. Kemp, is a washed out pro-ball contender that is stuck coaching the local school that he once thought he would escape through baseball fame. Donetta, is Kemp's Aunt and resident matchmaker that wonders if her husband still cares her after all their years together. Throughout the story the author weaves the characters together breathing new life into Daily, Texas. Kai comes to understand God better while she learns to love others. Kemp comes to accept and actually enjoy the life God's given him and Donetta has her questions answered in a profound way with a wonderful and surprising twist.
I give this book 5 stars! It opens up with a bang and kept my interest until the last page. I felt the author did a really good job developing the authentic Texans all the way to the pickup trucks.

A GREAT read!!
I received this book from Bethany House for review. And I had no idea until I began doing research after reading the book, that it was the third book in a series. Which says a lot to me---it could definitely be a stand-alone book.
I like Lisa Wingate's writing style. Although when I read the first page of the book and it started out with what I later learned to be a little Creole accent that I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to wade through the book. But it was a small spattering throughout the book.
I thought this book was highly engaging. It tells the story of Kai Miller who has had a very hard upbringing--being dragged from pillar to post with her dad--and abandoned by her mom. She feels unworthy. She lives on the coast when a hurricane blows through and the book gives a great description of a hurricane evacuation and all of the dangers involved. Kai runs into three older women from Daily, Texas and the rest of the book is the interaction between these four women, a nephew, and an African American church amidst a hurricane relief effort.
