From the Back Cover

Very few things distract Katie Addison when she's on a mission, whether it's opening her home to abused women, rehabilitating injured horses, or helping tall, gorgeous Warren Tate mend his broken heart. But when financial difficulties pile up for her, Katie hesitantly admits she herself may need help. Since his fiance left him, Warren is done with women---especially independent women, which he'd guess describes Katie Addison to a tee. Reluctantly he agrees to help Katie with her financial troubles. But when his budget doesn't include Katie's daily lattes, Warren realizes he may have a challenging client on his hands. Meanwhile, Sheriff Ben O'Keefe can't seem to get Katie's attention. Everyone in town knows he has had a longstanding crush on her. But to Katie, Ben is just Ben. When mysterious events turn Katie to him for help, is it the chance Ben has been waiting for? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

That he has a valid excuse doesn't placate her.
Barbara L. Lemaster
I also felt the author did a great job of kind of reminding us that you really need to stick to a budget and that aspect of the book was pretty real.

I really felt like I'd somehow bought the rough draft of this story.

I admired what the heroine was trying to do in this book. I also felt the author did a great job of kind of reminding us that you really need to stick to a budget and that aspect of the book was pretty real. What disappointed me is that I would have developed the relationship with the sheriff far more. It would have been great to have a stronger conflict as to what the heroine really wanted in a man. Funny, but I didn't care for Warren at all throughout the entire book, so I had a hard time relating as to why the heroine would have wanted to seek him out in the first place. I don't want to spoil things here, but she also needed to forgive the sheriff LONG before she did once you find out what really happened. We're talking about holding a major grudge!

I bought this book at a local bargain outlet, based solely on the author. Every book I've read by her, to this point, has been thoroughly enjoyable and well-written. I am not sure what happened with this one, however. I really felt like I'd somehow bought the rough draft of this story.
Please read something else she has written ( I suggest "Monday Morning Faith" -before you choose to read this one. I found it choppy, lacking substance, and totally unrepresentative of her wonderful historically based series I have read prior.

i liked this book but i was geeting sick of knowing about the main characters addiction to lattes and i knew in the middle of the book who was harrasing her. i lkie that even though she came from an abusive background she still wanted to help abused women. i was wondering how the women in the shlter kenw about the place. she said her income came from medical transcriptions but there was one clininc in the whole town. if it was a small town how sick did these people get? overall it was a hopeful book

Now and Always is a very easy read. It flows smoothly in most parts. It was a little predictable though. I was about half way through the book when I had a good idea of how it would end. But overall it was very good. I loved the characters, especially Ben with his signs and fun loving personality!

I enjoyed reading Now and Always by Lori Copeland. The story makes some good points, especially since the main character experiences for herself the attitudes that contribute to enabling abusive behaviors. As I read, I saw what she was doing and thought, "Now that's stupid." But when a person is in a relationship and really wants it to work, he/she seems to make all kinds of allowances for the other person's inappropriate and abusive behaviors. For this reason, I would recommend it for high school girls and others who are at risk for being involved in destructive relationships.
I have a few issues with the writing of it. Katie's obsession with lattes is overdone; her relationship with Ben should have been developed further; her interest in Warren is not quite understandable, and it's pretty hard to get frostbite or to freeze to death when the temperature is above freezing. The other thing that isn't fully explained is the location of Warren after Katie falls off the cliff. He didn't go back to the car, but no mention is made of where he is found.

Typical Lori Copeland! I love her style and stories! I have leaned that I can not go wrong with buying her books. It is always that was well spent!
