Until I Found You
Until I Found You by Victoria Bylin
I really enjoyed this book. Victoria Bylin is a new author to me, but I plan to find more of her books. I found her style of writing to be fun, full of faith and realistic. You are sure to fall in love with the storyline and characters. Nick Sheridan comes to the rescue of Kate Darby more than once. He is not proud of his past as a bestselling author, but as a new Christian has the chance to save KateÃ¢ÂÂs grandmothers newspaper and write about the important things. Kate puts her career on hold to help her grandmother Leona when she has a stroke. Nick may be her hero but wants so much more. I was intrigued by all the information on LeonaÃ¢ÂÂs beloved condorÃ¢ÂÂs. I give Until I Found You 5 stars and highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys Christian, contemporary and romance fiction
I want to thank the author Victoria Bylin and publisher Bethany House for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me. I would also like to thank The Book Club Network Inc. for providing me with this book in exchange for my honest review.

Changes, Choices and California Condors!
(I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review of it.)
HereÃ¢ÂÂs what I really liked about the book:
In this day and age, when careers and freedom are so valued over more important things, we see a realistic struggle with what is the best course to take. Big city vs. small town, helping family and friends vs. success in the worldÃ¢ÂÂs eyes, etc. The support of NickÃ¢ÂÂs Christian brother as Nick, a brand new Christian learns what it means to be a Christ Follower, is great! There is a real, honest progression of struggles and learning process as he figures it all out, what his life should look like now and how he can help Kate in the same way once she makes the same decision he has.
But this part bothered me:
I've lived in California for 10 years now, and have never heard anyone from here say Ã¢ÂÂ1-5Ã¢ÂÂ³, which they use in the story. ThatÃ¢ÂÂs what people like me say that are from Oregon, so I thought is was weird that they donÃ¢ÂÂt call it Ã¢ÂÂThe 5Ã¢ÂÂ³ as everyone here does, (I like authenticity).
Anyone with a fascination for Condors will probably enjoy the story as thereÃ¢ÂÂs quite a bit about them here. I hadnÃ¢ÂÂt heard a lot about them before this. :>
All in all, itÃ¢ÂÂs a pretty good story! See for yourself!

How strong is my faith
Kate Darby has everything she think she wants, A great career, A loving Grandma and is living in the limelight. When tragedy strikes she must learn to trust in others and God as well. She is unprepared for the twist and turns that she must face. Can she ever trust in a God whom she can not see? What about love, is there such a thing as forever kind of love? She never imagined meeting anyone like Nick Sheridan.
Nick is a man once in the same kind of fast lane in life that is now learning to trust in God himself. He never intended to be anyoneÃ¢ÂÂs hero. Yet, he seams to always be helping out the beautiful Kate. Will he loose his faith or will he loose Kate?
Victoria Bylin writes with much passion and chemistry. I enjoyed the personalities throughout this book. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes Contemporary Romance Christian Fiction. I was given a copy of this book by bookfun.org (The Book Club Network) for my honest opinion.

Contemporary romance with old-fashioned values
"Until I Found You" is a contemporary romance with some good, old fashioned values. Kate Darby is a single woman with a fast-paced, career minded life. She is happy with that life and loves her job and career, but she often feels empty inside.
Nick is a newer Christian trying to do things right. He desires to do his best for God and others with his life. When Kate and Nick meet, things happen! Sparks fly! And they both discover that maybe there is a bit more that they desire for their lives...
Victoria Bylin has written a sweet story full of modern day issues that we all (could) face. She has added humor, emotions and even a few "hero" scenes. Bylin did a great job adding faith, love and family into her story. "Until I Found You" is a lighthearted and enjoyable read.
I received this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
