From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a new book featuring everyones favorite family—the Baxters, which tells the story of how John and Elizabeth first fell in love.
From the day they met, John and Elizabeth were destined to fall in love. Their whirlwind romance started when they were young college students and lasted nearly thirty years—until Elizabeth died of cancer.
So when John Baxter is asked to relive his long-ago love story with Elizabeth for his grandson Coles heritage project, hes not sure he can do it. The sadness might simply be too great. But he agrees and allows his heart and soul to go places they havent gone in decades. Back to the breathless first moments, but also to the secret heartbreak that brought John and Elizabeth together.
At the same time, Baxter family friend Cody Coleman is working through the breakup of his complicated relationship with Andi Ellison. He is determined to move on when a chance sighting changes his plans—and heart. Can Cody convince Andi to give their love another try, or is it time for them to say goodbye for good?
As school comes to an end, Cole presents his report on the love story between his grandparents John and Elizabeth Baxter. It is a tale that touches the hearts of the entire family, and one that causes Cole to better understand his own beginning.
Whether youre meeting the Baxter family for the first time or finding them all over again, Love Story will stir your heart and remind you of the generational impact of love and the eternal bond of family.

If you have not yet read any of her books about the Baxter family, you can start here and be just fine, her books fill you in on any part you may have missed in previous books. However if you are like myself and have read most, if not all of this series of books about the Baxter family here is another great one.
There are over twenty, (yes, twenty) books around the Baxter family. some may wonder how anyone can write so many books about one family and they not get boring, well read this series and you will see. You will fall in love with the entire family even their family friends. You will laugh, cry and maybe find yourself in one or more of the characters in one of these books.
This book takes you to the very beginning, to a love story about the Baxter family parents. There is heartache, struggles, finding God and so much more.
Kingsbury has a unique style, each chapter may be from a different characters perspective and in this book some are even taking you back into the past. There are typically more than one main focus throughout the book, but as a reader you are not lost.
I love the way her characters are flawed, they are very much life like. I am so glad to hear more from the Baxter family and hope there are more to come.
jsrn185 Stars Out Of 5A true love storyJune 17, 2017jsrn18Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Such a touching and inspiring story. Even though it is John and Elizabeth's love story, the book is so much more than that. It provides stories from many of the characters from all the Baxter family books. Loved how even though its been a while since we had a new book about this family its like things pick up close to where the previous series ended plus even if you haven't read any of the series it gives enough back story to completely follow the story. Can't wait for the next book in the series.
Michelle F5 Stars Out Of 5Karen Kingsbury's BEST NOVEL YET!June 9, 2017Michelle FQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0This book, "Love Story," seriously is Karen Kingsbury's best novel so far and my new KK fave! The Baxter Family "Love Story" is absolutely amazing, inspiring, and touching!!! If you don't know the Baxters, that's okay! The way KK intertwined the characters of the Baxter Family throughout this love story is just brilliant! If you do know the Baxters, you will find out the beginning of Elizabeth's and John's Love Story, and oh what a story it is!! And how Cody struggles with his broken engagement from Andi, because he never stopped loving her. Get out the tissues and happy reading!!!
BTW...a TV series of Karen Kingsbury's Baxter Family is coming soon!

After a couple of spin off series, I stopped following the story, but was intrigued when I found this title. I was able to pick the story back up and follow the story line without feeling as if I had missed information and I was able to fully enjoy where the story resumed. As always, Karen Kingsbury offers true to life, vibrant characters who each had a part to tell without overwhelming the reader. I was challenged in my view of life while still enjoying the magic of getting lost in an amazing story.
rkfall5 Stars Out Of 5A great beginningJune 8, 2017rkfallQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you haven't read any of Karen's books in the past you are missing out!! And if you have you definitely want to read this one!! Such a sweet beginning that came in the perfect timing of things. I'm really glad that she chose to go back to the beginning of it all and fill in this part of the story. With Karen's writing you get some real, raw events but they are woven into the story so well that you are swept into it with the characters. Back in a simpler day that wasn't for them very simple... I recommend that you check this one out!!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
