I LOVED this book by Sandra D. Brickner. The humor made me laugh-out-loud, while the depth of Lucys spiritual journey made me analyze being true to Gods plan for my life. Sandie has a real gift for weaving humor with spiritual growth, and writes a very strong story. Anyone questioning Gods purpose in their life, and wondering if they might try to help Him with His job will benefit from reading it. I was reading late at night and laughing about certain scenes until my daughter asked what was so funny. I read a few scenes to her and had her laughing, too. Im surprised we didnt wake up the whole house. It was a great moment. We really laughed over the horse scene. You just have to read it. I loved the recipes included in the book, could visualize being in the story with the characters, and, because Im originally from that area, I LOVED the descriptions and setting. I miss the Ozarks so much! Thanks, Sandie, for a fantastic, fun read.
This is a laugh out loud romantic comedy with God's will for your life as it's cental message. Sandra Brickner does a phenomenal job wrapping the two together in her first inspirational romance. Lucy Binoche is a 30-year old single woman who is searching for Mr. Right. She belives she has finally found him and in order to "close the deal" she agrees to a week long retreat in Snowball, Arkansas pretending to be someone she is not. Her best friend Matt watches the transformation and is frustrated that Lucy can't see what a fantastic person she is just as God intended her to be, no transformation needed. This light-hearted comedy handles the deeper subject of being authentic with comedic flair and grace. A wonderful read. I couldn' put it down. I know you won't be able to either.
From the first moment that Lucy sets her cap to attract Justin Gerard, Sandra Bricker takes the reader on a merry chase that takes you to a camping spot in Snowball, Arkansas where Lucy and her friends encounter all sorts of adventures made more exciting by Lucys mishaps trying to fish, ride in a hot air balloon, explore a cavern and ride a snowmobile; all things she tried to do in order to attract Justin. From bug bites to a sprained ankle, Lucy endures it all for love, but is it the wrong love? Is what she truly wants right under her nose?
LOVE FINDS YOU IN SNOWBALL, ARKANSAS is a quick and wonderful read! I read most of it on a travel day flying from Dallas to Orlando for vacation, and could hardly wait to finish it that night at the hotel. Lucy Binoche is a quirky, lovable character who keeps you chuckling as she bumbles through the singles retreat searching for love, when all the while it is there for the taking. All of the characters in the singles group are well written, lovable, and real.The story is well told by author Sandra Bricker. I loved this book and look forward to reading her next book.
Lucy Binoche falls in love the second she meets gorgeous Justin Gerald at her church in Little Rock, Arkansas. She gets her best friend, Matt, to introduce them, and when Justin signs up for a week-long singles retreat in Snowball, Arkansas, Lucy signs on the line right below him. So what if she cant hook a worm and Justin is the original outdoors man. Immediately after signing up, Lucy gets Matt to help her learn how to hook a worm and cast a line, and even how to sit in a canoe. And even though Lucy doesnt exactly master the tricks in Matts living room, shes convinced the camping trip will be a breeze, even though Lucys idea of roughing it is suffering through a long line at Starbucks and staying at a 4-star hotel. How long can Lucy pretend to be someone shes not? Will the new Lucy snap a boyfriend?LOVE FINDS YOU IN SNOWBALL, ARKANSAS, is the second book in the Love Finds You series, and it is a winner. I totally loved Lucy, and Matt, and all the other secondary characters. The book is funny and lighthearted, and even better, it is set in my part of the country. I enjoyed watching the characters tour areas that Im very familiar with. The faith message is very well down, and not preachy. My only problem with this story is that there were liberties taken with the October weather conditions in Arkansas, but this is fiction. I loved this book and cant wait to read this authors next Love Finds You book coming in 2009. Dont miss this new series by a brand new publishing house.
