RachelGender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Romance, Faith and ExcitementSeptember 2, 2015RachelGender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed this book. The romance was just right, the writing awesome and the characters well thought out. I didn't have any trouble staying engrossed in the story. It flowed wonderfully and there was never any lag to it. The story was steady from start to finish. I enjoyed the spiritual aspect and appreciated Carly's never wavering faith. Victoria did an excellent job of blending faith and real life together without compromising the gospel. She also made Carly seem real and human, not like a perfect Christian know-it-all which is what I have found in some books. I love stories that read as if they are happening in real life not completely made up fiction. I also was able to learn something in this book. I knew nothing about FASD before reading this book. It brought to light many things I didn't even realize. FASD is a very sad thing especially since it is so preventable. I enjoyed Victoria's writing very much and can't wait to read more of her books.
I was blessed with a copy of this book by TBCN in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.

Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Wasn't exactly what I expected but I enjoyed itAugust 19, 2015Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the first Victoria Bylin novel I have read and I was impressed. She is a good author and I enjoyed the plot as well as how she portrayed the characters and her inclusion of some very touchy matters.
The book is about a family whose father has made his share of mistakes. Dr Tremaine has many regrets and is trying hard to make up for lost time and bad choices. He is attempting to remedy those with his SOS list and a summer with his children. While his efforts are worthwhile, it isn't exactly going as planned. The story begins with Penny, his daughter, getting lost in the mall.
Enter Carly, ex-social worker, with regrets of her own. Carly is in LA strictly for the purpose of studying and getting her degree, but her heart is still back in Kentucky where she grew up. She pretty much dislikes everything about LA - the rush of life, the smog, the traffic, and the people are not quite like they are in Kentucky. But God has a plan for her and a purpose for her life, and when she finds Penny in the mall, she can't help but wonder what path He is leading her on.
There were several characters in this book I could relate to. The story line tugs at your heart. I was also able to relate to some of the situations those characters had to deal with. The relationship between Carly and Dr. Tremaine was an interesting twist. Although, I wouldn't necessarily label this book a mushy romance. Dr. Tremaine is not a believer and Carly is, and does her best to share her faith with those around her. Carly has very good convictions and morals based on how she believes God wants her to live. I like Victoria's approach to the whole save-yourself-for-marriage concept. She also addresses Penny's condition of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and how it affects families, children, and caretakers. I definitely gleaned a lot of insight from this book. If any of this has peaked your interest, you'll have to read the book. :-)
