Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kyle (The Christian Girl's Guide to Style) moves from tween girl writing in her debut adult novel with the unlikely scenario of a 35- year-old love letter found by 23-year-old Claire James in her recently deceased mother's '72 Volkswagen glove compartment. After Claire loses her waitress job and is kicked out of her sister's apartment, she heads to Capitola, Calif., in search of the author of the love letter, having become obsessed with ferreting him out. After a series of clunky mishaps, Claire lands a job and a place to stay, where she conveniently meets up with her mother's long-lost love. Part mystery, part comedy, the story places Claire in the middle of numerous unlikely emotionally charged situations with the residents of Capitola. Determined to unravel the secret behind the love letter, Claire doesn't give up until the truth is told. Kyle's interweaving of so many characters is implausible and contrived, and she fails to connect readers emotionally with Claire and her search. (Apr.)

New author Sherry Kyle will keep you turning pages in Delivered with Love. Young Claire James has faced tough times, particularly with the recent illness and death of her mother. When she loses her job and is sent packing by her alcoholic brother-in-law, Claire sets out on her own. Led to the seaside town of Capitola, California, by an old love letter she finds in the glove compartment of the 1972 VW Bug that had been her mother's car, Claire suddenly finds her life being propeled along by a series of amazing events -- events she will eventually come to understand are being orchestrated by a God who loves her and is drawing her to Himself. As the story unfolded, I couldn't wait to find out how the author would resolve all the questions her story presented: Who wrote the letter? Why had Claire's mother kept the letter for 30 years? What were the secrets in Michael's past that were so troubling? Would Claire ever be able to accept her past and trust in the power of love? I look forward to more works by this author and hope she will give us a more detailed picture of the setting she obviously loves. Capitola sounds like a wonderful place.

Delivered With Love--delivers--romance, suspense, conflict, humor and terrific true-to-life characters. Every one of them has something special that drew me in. And the setting, Capitola, California, is a lovely backdrop to this heart-warming story that will keep you turning the pages. A great start for debut novelist Sherry Kyle.

Even though I am a Christian, I usually avoid "Christian fiction" because most of the time it is cheesy, overly sweet, and many times just generally poorly written. This was no exception on the first two points, although it was better written than I would have expected. But I'm glad I got it for free.

This book is okay. I didn't realize though, how very religious it was going to be. It seemed every other page was "God provides", "God loves you", "Have faith" - ETC This didn't start until about the middle way through the book. I had to fight to read the rest of it, because it was just so unrealistic. There is no way that Claire would meet ALL of these people who had so much faith in God - and the characters they didn't seem realistic at all. Don't get me wrong, I am religious, as well. Just I think this book went way too over the top. And it very much rushed the end of the book. I think this author could have done so much better. Would I read it again? No. Did I feel like I wasted all that time reading it after I finished it? Yes.

I really enjoyed most of this Christian chicklit. The story is about a girl named Chloe and her hunt (obsession) to find the person who wrote her mom a love letter. After being kicked out of her sisters apt by her no-good brother-in-law she jumps in her mom's (who died a year before) VW bug to head to the address found on the note. After wrecking her car, God sends many(almost to the point of non-believeable) people her way to help her with finding shelter, a job, a little romance, and the actual man who wrote the letter. The reason I only gave it 3 stars is because Chloe sometimes annoyed me. Some of the things she did to find out who wrote the letter were quite immature (IMO), especially the beach scene with Michael and Mitchell and their wives. She was also quite wishy-washy toward her neighbor, Blake, and their budding romance.
Overall though, this is a good read with a nice ending.

Not worth the read unless you are stranded with no other option. It seems like half the book is the main character asking questions in her own head. I know it is a religious book, trying to make a point about God directing everything and providence, but the amount of coincidences in this book was unbelievable. I'd give it a pass.

The cover of Sherry Kyle's Delivered with Love is terrific. I only wish what was in-between the covers was as appealing. The premise is good, but my primary issue with this debut novel is that the secondary characters overshadow the heroine. Claire is sweet and unassuming, but naive to the point of being careless and putting herself in potential danger. It seems that any time she needs something, someone is there and - voila! - provides just what she needs. I certainly understand and appreciate how the Lord can provide time and again, but this is overkill. The hero is too perfect, the dialogue stilted at times. Above all, it's the unrealistic coincidences that killed the joy of reading this novel. It's surprising to the point of shocking how a major publisher could release this debut novel - which shows appeal and promise on the part of the author - without an overhaul. Delivered with a little more time and care, it could shine. I hope Ms. Kyle has another opportunity to win me over with her next fiction offering.

I found this book free on Amazon and looked like a good read. I was drawn in immediately! The book was fast paced and a quick read. The language and the writing was not spectacular and the way the author wrote seemed very unsophisticated. For a quick, cute read this book worked but IT IS NOT A GREAT WORK OF LITERATURE BY ANY MEANS!

The main plot seemed really unrealistic and almost dream like. In real life, this would NOT have happened. When the main character, Claire, gets into a car accident, the people whom she hits take her in for the night on their RV. Claire then calls a tow truck company and the driver ends up taking Claire in for the night, which ends up being a few weeks. The family she stays with buys her stuff and even puts a down payment on a house. When Claire ends up renting a house, the guy next door falls for her and of course he is a perfect gentleman.. surprise surprise! I feel that it was kind of cheesy and very unrealistic.

If you are looking for a decent quick read, I would suggest this book.
