Publisher's Description

After tirelessly climbing the ranks of her Chicago-based interior design firm, Lane Kelley is about to land her dream promotion when devastating news about her brother draws her back home—a quaint tourist town full of memories she’d just as soon forget. With her cell phone and laptop always within reach, Lane aims to check on her brother while staying focused on work—something her eclectic family doesn’t understand.

Ryan Brooks never expected to settle down in Harbor Pointe, Michigan, but after his final tour of duty, it was the only place that felt like home. Now knee-deep in a renovation project that could boost tourism for the struggling town, he is thrilled to see Lane, the girl he secretly once loved, even if the circumstances of her homecoming aren’t ideal.

Their reunion gets off to a rocky start, however, when Ryan can’t find a trace of the girl he once knew in the woman she is today. As he slowly chips away at the walls Lane has built, secrets from his past collide with a terrible truth even he is reluctant to believe. Facing a crossroads that could define his future with Lane and jeopardize his relationship with the surrogate family he’s found in the Kelleys, Ryan hopes Lane can see that maybe what really matters has been right in front of her all along—if only she’d just look up.

    This review was written for Just Look Up.
    Once again, Courtney Walsh does not disappoint. I loved reading both Paper Hearts and A Change of Heart, and now, Just Looks Up delivers another heartwarming, small-town contemporary romance that proves just as lovable.

    Lane Kelley and Ryan Brooks cross paths in their hometown of Harbor Pointe, Michigan, and becoming reaquainted is no easy task. Both characters have pasts that continue to affect them and must be overcome. As their relationship develops and the truth comes out, Walsh shares a beautiful story of worth and value and discovering whats really important.

    An excellent read for fans of contemporary romance, Just Look Up is an easy book to recommend. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from Courtney Walsh in the future.

    Thanks to Tyndale BlogNetwork, I received a complimentary copy of Just Look Up and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Courtney Walsh is a new author for me, having never read any of her books, I was looking forward to diving into this one. I'm glad to say, she didn't disappoint. Instead, she soared in expectations and I've found a new author to seek out.

    Just Look Up is about Lane Kelley who is an interior designer for a design firm in Chicago. Leaving behind her home in a small town, she has been determined to have nothing to do with her family and the memories left behind. But tragedy strikes, and she must return home. While home, she comes across an old friend, who is determined to bring out the Lane he knows must reside within her rigid walls. If only he can get her to relinquish hold of the phone and laptop.

    This story kept me intrigued and curious as to how it would all play out. When a turning point came in the book, I was nowhere near the end, so I knew that there was even more to the story. I was glad. I wasn't quite ready for the book to end where it did.

    Once, again, new author to me whom I relish reading more from in the future. There are little things that were brought up, such as Ryan and his duty overseas, but I admit, that I didn't focus much on it, knowing that I was focusing on the Lane story. However, that part of his life also explained his plans for the grand opening.

    What I took from the book, was my own addiction to the digital devices, and my own decision to spend more time "just looking up".

    I did receive this book complimentary from the publisher, but all thoughts and opinions are my own within this review.

    For some busy, just trying to cross off all the items off their daily "to do" list would make them feel accomplished, but not for Lane Kelley. To say that she lives for her job would simply be an understatement. She lives and breathes her job as a potential promotion as creative director looms before her based on the success of her presentation. She knows her ability to tap into exactly what the client needs and aside from the nervousness residing within her, she knows she shouldn't be at all worried. I mean everything in her career has lead up to this one pivotal moment in her life, so the fact she spent every waking moment practicing her speech and presentation should count for something. It has all lead up to this moment to sell her idea to a tech saavy company known as Solar.

    Just as she is about to face her fears, she is interrupted by a phone call from her assistant conveying to her, she has to take this call. Even the company head is looking her way wondering if she will pass this up for a phone call. However when Chloe tells her its from her family and she NEEDS to take that call, she wonders what could be so important that it couldn't wait for a couple of hours. Her brother Nate has been in a serious motorcycle accident and it doesn't look good. Despite her well-meaning intentions, she is told not to wait and get home right away. It is a home she walked away from years ago and despite all their attempts to lure her home and away from her job, she had never looked back. Now it seems with the only choice but to head home, she might just be giving up her promotion. Her company will give her a couple of days but they expect her back by Monday.

    Lane knew one day that motorcycle would lead Nate into an accident and that is exactly what has happened. He had been out riding with his best friend Ryan Brooks, who also crashed, but he was the lucky one. Her brother remained in a coma. Lane and Brooks had grown up together and it should be no surprise that he is one of the first people to greet her at the hospital. He always seemed to be the one to protect her even when people and friends teased her about being fat, nicknaming her Pudge, but now that person no longer exists even shedding all those pounds in an effort to leave her past behind. But for Ryan, Lane has always been the one person who knew him the best and even despite their rough childhood, they shared something more than what meets the eye. Now all he has to do is convince himself that he can't share his feelings with Lane since it is only a matter of time before she heads back to her busy job in the city and once again walks out of all their lives.

    I received Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh compliments of Tyndale House Publishers. This is such a coming of age in reverse story as Lane has to deal with her lack of self esteem and bullying when she was in school, not only from those in her class but those in her family as well. Even her heart's desire in hoping to land a husband was taken away from her and now she must do what she can to get back to work as quickly as she can or else her entire identity will be lost again, but was it ever her true self anyway? I can understand so many things from Lane's point of view from becoming so consumed by work that it fills up every ounce of time and you don't see it happening. You trade off one success to make up for past failures and I love that Ryan has never lost hope in her and teaches her that life awaits outside of work once again and that family is what you make of it. 5 out of 5 stars in my opinion.

    This was one of those books that once I started, I could not put down. In fact, I started reading it one evening after work and finished in the wee hours of the next day.

    In part because I could empathize in a way with Lane Kelley. While Im not estranged from my family, I do live 2500 miles away and often feel out of the loop when I get together with them. And none of them betrayed me the way a member of Lanes family did hers. Theres so much pain and hurt to Lanes story, I couldnt help but feel for her.

    And then theres Ryan Brooks. AKA Brooks. Oh, this man! He was the icing on top of this story. His steadfastness. His determination. His desire to become more than what his past dictated. I admit it. I fell a little in love with Brooks.

    On the other side of disappointment, fear, and heartache lie healing, forgiveness, and the possibility of love. Courtney Walsh carriers readers through Lanes journey of busyness masking her loneliness to a quieter, more fulfilled existence.

    A summer read with depth and heart that will stick with you after the final words, Just Look Up is a must-read for lovers of story that immerses you in the characters world.

    loved this book. this was a wonderful story of forgiveness. a story of finding a lost soul. sometimes life causes is to hide and bury ourselves. Lane did just that. slowly she begins to discover her true self and learns to forgive.
