Waiting for Spring
Hi, Drama Queen here.
News Flash: I like gobs of drama in my stories!! Oh. You already knew that? What gave it away...?
Book Rating: Best of the Best
OK, so the more I read Cabot, the more I love her stories. They will surprise you with their simple, heart-warming romances and real-to-life experiences.
WAITING FOR SPRING is book two in Cabot's latest series, and I have to say I L-O-V-E-ed this story.
Charlotte Crowley is one of the best leading ladies I've read about in a long time. She was SO real. Her genuine nature, her strivings to be more like Christ, her devotion to her son and the love she carries for the leading man were all fabulous. She is carrying a horrible burden/secret (No! Really?! teehee, I know it seems a bit over done, but I just love it, and apparently I'm not alone...Right?). When Barret Landry comes along, her life begins to change in more ways then she can ever imagine.
Barret is also totally wonderful. Throughout the story he deals with his own struggles as every character should, but what I cherished most about this story was the way their romance developed. Cabot usually keeps you hangin'...no kisses until the end, no real, deep passion between the characters for a while. In most cases I would say, snore. However, the way the relationship between Barret and Charlotte changes and deepens over time was SO real! I savored it! It was an enjoyable shift from the heavy drama that typically draws me like the pull of a sixty-ton magnet.
Should you read this book? Yes. Will you like it? I'm thinkin' you will. Do you need to read book one first? You don't need to but it might help, and if nothing else would be fun because that's a good book as well.
This book is available January 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
Also, thank you to Revell for giving me this book in exchange for my honest review!
