So, I didn't have high expectations going into this book. It was my first by Lisa Wingate and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it more then I thought I would and the plot kept me turning the pages, (rather quickly I might add) and I enjoyed it enough to say that I would read more from Lisa. She's a good writer, although I found she had the characters explaining quite a lot of stuff in their thoughts...
Altogether, I don't think I'd read it again, but I would recommend it to fans of contemporary fiction who like a little Hollywood thrown into Texas.
Once again, I was totally involved with the characters and read the book almost straight through. I did have to sleep some. The Daily, TX characters seem like friends that I don't see often and I find myself wondering what they are doing now. Maybe the next book will tell me if the ranch for children materializes. I hope this series continues on and on. But, I will say that the covers don't really do the stories justice. They look like the typical, shallow romance, but there is so much depth there.
I just finished reading this book and it is a steal at $2.99! I enjoyed the way Lisa Wingate took you in and showed you how great everything could be. I laughed and I cried. I highly recommend this book.
This novel was my first experience with Lisa Wingate, and it was a great one. As I mentioned in a previous review, Lisa does Christian overtones without hitting me over the head with a Bible, which I always appreciate and try to emulate in my own writing. However, more importantly, in Lauren and Nathan, Lisa has given us two real people with fabulous jobs, personalities, and conflicts to deal with. Nathan, in particular, was easy to identify with because we're both writers, though I don't do screenplays. I also liked how Lisa handled Lauren's guilt without overblowing it, as some authors tend to do. The realism of these characters, as well as the unique backdrop in which they find themselves (on a movie set, but without stereotypical glitz), makes for a great romance. I'd have liked to see more time spent on the actual movie, but otherwise, this was a thoroughly enjoyable book. I'm hoping Lisa can give us at least one more visit to Daily.
