More About the Author

I grew up in Texas loving cowboys and rodeos, but relocated to Michigan after my marriage to a handsome Yankee who stole my heart. I still favor country love songs, and seeing a field of Texas bluebonnets makes me homesick, but I admit West Michigan has a beauty all its own.

Now I enjoy writing emotionally fulfilling stories centered on the relationship of a man and a woman and their often rocky road to love. Heart-warming stories of ordinary people and extra-ordinary love.

I'm a former president and founding member of the Mid-Michigan Chapter of RWA. I credit my chapter and my wonderful critique partners for their unlimited support and encouragement on my roller-coaster ride to becoming a published romance author.

When not writing, I enjoy reading, spending time with family and friends, and traveling. You can send snail-mail to: P.O. Box 140095, Walker, MI 49514-0095

I love reading romance, but have always had a soft spot for contemporary romance since that is what I started out reading. I admit that my time lately has been limited (and I know I'm not the only one!), so when I pick up a book to read for pleasure, I'm expecting a lot.
Well, let me tell you when I finished the first few sentences of ALL THAT MATTERS, it became all that mattered. I couldn't put this story down. From the first page Buddy Lee and Faith's story captured my heart. By the end of chapter one, I admit I had more than a slight crush on Buddy Lee. This charming man was pure in heart and the more I learned about him the more I rooted for him to get what he wanted. Faith's love.

Without giving away too much, because I want you to enjoy the story the way I did, feel the emotions and the triumphs and the frustration, I will share a little bit.

Buddy Lee showed his courage in overcoming a shame-filled past brought on him by his father. He worked hard and lived by a moral code of ethics, though not everybody realized this. As for Faith, I was instantly drawn to her for all that she'd gone through. Her plight in dealing with an overbearing father and how she was made to feel she needed to act a certain way because she belonged to the upper class of their small town...it broke my heart. Together this pair formed an unlikely friendship...good girl meets town bad boy. But Buddy Lee proves he isn't a bad boy when he rescues Faith time and time again from the situations she finds herself in. He takes the blame with no thought to how it makes him appear to others, his only concern is his friend. Faith.

REVIEWER - WENDE SHEETS

Buddy Lee Walker and Faith Morgan were friends in high school. Faith was the one getting into trouble and Buddy getting her out of those jams. They have not spoken to each other in 6 years, then a night like any other, Buddy finds Faith on his door step. Again, Faith needs help getting out of trouble.

Faith is engaged to Royce Webb and the wedding is just a few days away. There is just one problem Faith does not want to marry Royce. To many things have happened and Faith is afraid. With no one else to run to she turns to Buddy Lee for help.

Buddy Lee's mother died when he was 6 and his father failed at raising him. Buddy spends most of his time at his shop and stays to himself. He likes his quiet life then Faith shows up. She ask for his help and Buddy has no idea what he is in for ! After agreeing to help Faith his life is anything but quiet. He finds himself married and once again with the ugly title of "Boyd's Boy".

This was an excellent read ! I feel in love with Faith and Buddy right away. This book reminded me of the Robyn Carr's books. A good love story with lots of little twist !

Loralee Lillibridge has created a winner! Her characters are so real you just know you could bump into one of them on the street and you'd know who it was. Her story takes turns you wouldn't expect and there's always something there that keeps you from setting it aside. I kept saying "Just one more chapter then I'll put it down" but I couldn't do it. I was rooting for Faith and hoping she'd figure out what was staring her in the face the whole time and she finally did but Loralee took me on some unexpected turns to get there! Buddy Lee was a terrific hero you just can't help but cheer for. This one is a keeper for sure and one to reread, which for me, doesn't happen very often.

All That Matters

All That Matters is fun, romantic, sad,tragic, and suspensful all wrapped up into one good read. The reader immediately learns to love the characters Buddy Lee and Faith and the situation they have found themselves in. And they are drawn into the suspense and mystery that centers around a death.

The story moves quickly and can easily be read in a weekend making it a good choice for those with little time to sit and read. There are a couple of intimate scenes between Buddy Lee and Faith that are done in good taste within the scope of true love but I would still warn the reader that it wouldn't be appropriate for teens or those uncomfortable reading scenes with sexual content.

The mystery and suspense is good, the story line keeps the reader caring about what will happen, and the ending has its own twist and turn. All in all a very good story.
