Amanda5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing!June 23, 2018AmandaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This story follows Lane, who struggles with social anxiety and has trouble fitting in with her family. She still feels the effects of her childhood, where she was nicknamed Pudge and not treated well.
I related to Lane in many ways. She felt very real and the descriptions of her anxiety were very accurate. As I was reading, I was reminded of some difficult memories from my childhood of being teased and feeling left out. I also related wholeheartedly when her brother was almost questioning her anxiety and making her feel like she could control it. (Been there, done that). I also found myself nodding furiously during the scene when she goes to her hometown church.
I loved how Ryan helped Lane to see where her priorities should be and found his love for her to be very special.
The town of Harbor Pointe was a great setting and Im excited to know that this is only book one in a series of stories taking place in this small lakeside touristy town.
I also found Lanes job as an interior designer to be interesting to read about. Ive often thought that would be a fun job so it was fun to learn some of the ins and outs of it.
Overall, I loved this book. The writing flowed very easily and I flew through the story and was very sad to see it end. I will definitely be reading more books by Courtney.
sdg5 Stars Out Of 5just Look Up - Its great!April 24, 2018sdgQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I loved this book. Ryan is the perfect hero. He overcame so much to become a man of honor and steadfastness. Lane struggles to accept herself and believe in herself even after shes become everything she ever wanted to be. Families are not always what we wish them to be but Ms. Walsh shows us that sometimes we just need to accept them, and ourselves, for what and who they are.

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing!December 29, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is real life at it's best -- and worst. Fragile family dynamics, broken lives and the hope God brings if we have the faith to see it. I felt emotionally pummeled as I wrestled right along with Lane and Ryan.
Lane who has always felt like an outsider in her large and boisterous overachieving family. Who struggles with body image issues and feelings of self-worth. Has the need to prove herself worthy which alters her priorities in a disastrous way. There were times that I got impatient with Lane but then Walsh would deliver another gut-wrenching tidbit from her past and I'd get her that much more.
And Ryan who has risen above horrific circumstances to become a man of integrity. The Kelley family has played a pivotal role in his life. Lifting him up when his own family failed him. Providing him with the kind of direction and acceptance he could never find at home. He has become the honorary brother and son.
And then a single reckless act catapults Ryan and the Kelley family into a journey of self-discovery and healing. And the catalyst for a romance that Lane never saw coming. A deeply thought-provoking story that left me wondering how many times I've let fear keep me from looking up and seeing the wonders God has in store for me.
