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.

Natalie Walters5 Stars Out Of 5It's time to look up and read this AMAZING novel!!November 9, 2017Natalie WaltersQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm so glad I looked up and found this amazing book! This is the first full-length novel I've read by Courtney Walsh (I read her novella A Sweethaven Romance in Right Where We Belong-check out my review on Goodreads) and I've been missing out.
Just Look Up is a highly relevant story and I loved author, Courtney Walsh's note at the end of the story explaining how the plot came to be.
Let's talk characters. Right away we're introduced to Lane Kelley, a woman who has strived to climb the corporate ladder of success. Chained to her cell phone it takes a life threatening accident to pull her eyes up long enough to face her painful past, which includes childhood friend, Ryan Brooks.
You guys, this story has all of the emotions and I believe it has everything to do with the masterful way Ms. Walsh crafts characters. Each character, even minor characters, are created with such depth it was impossible to not grow attached to the feelings of each as they played out. If that wasn't enough you have this story--this one that mirrors real life in its authenticity and develops this powerful theme that won't likely leave me anytime soon.
This story does not shy away from the devastating reality behind personal pain, regret, fears, and heartbreak but Ms. Walsh brings balance penning a sweet story where forgiveness, love, and beauty can be had if only we Just Look Up.
I highly recommend this book to readers who love a heartwarming romance that tackles tough issues but will leave you inspired, hopeful, and absolutely ready to book your next stay in Harbor Pointe.
