I wasn't sure how I was going to feel as I progressed through this story. One girl, two brothers. I'm always a bit skeptical about this type of plot. However, I can solidly say that this one was done with sensitivity and class.
The root beer float thing? I've never been in a LDS Singles Ward, so maybe that's a real thing, but I do love root beer floats, though maybe I'll never look at them the same again!!!
As a Mormon author, Jenny does add enough elements of her faith into the pages that may seem unfamiliar to someone who wasn't LDS. However, I don't think this is a problem. I read enough Christian lit that is written by authors who are always writing in elements of their worship, that while may seem a little foreign or different to me - I can fully embrace it in the spirit it is meant. I actually was really appreciative that Jenny included some references to God in regards to the circumstances the characters found them in. I never feel like the LDS authors go there as freely as other Christian authors do, and I really wish they would! I love that aspect of a novel, it brings so much richness and inspiration, along with the escape of a good book. So, what I am trying to say is, even though this book is written and marketed probably at mostly LDS members, I recommend Jenny's books to other bookish friends. She writes with skill and on a par with many clean Christian fiction authors, that sell their books and are widely known through the national marketplace.
Set in North Carolina, I swear this author is intent on getting us all to come visit the state!! I have fallen in love with her locations through her books. If I could jump in a car and start driving to NC right now, I would!!
I'm not even going to attempt a breakdown of the plot or story, because seriously I don't want to spoil anything for you. I loved this book, I loved that Emma & Elliot (Love at First Note) appeared in a small cameo, I loved the location, the characters - so diverse with such a depth that even the minor characters with leave you convinced of the significant part they play.
I'm not usually a fan of 'texts' or 'emails' within stories, well, that is unless its overdone. Not the case here. It was a clever way to add an alternate insight without having to write all major characters point of view. Keeping it to just Lane, kept the story streamlined, but the inclusion of the Hamilton brothers group text was genius.
Thank you to Jenny Proctor & Covenant Communications for the copy I won through a giveaway. This is my honest review.
I really loved Lane. I love the fact that she's so competitive in pretty much everything she does. But at the same time, she's willing to slow down and back off when she needs to, I really loved a scene in this book where she and the rest of the characters are biking as kind of a race, but Lane stops to care for someone who really needs her help. I also liked that she's willing to take a step back and think about things and be really honest with herself. That plays a big part in the plot of this one.
This book is really fun because there are not one but two male leads. That makes things fun, interesting and competitive! First there's Jamie. He's kind of a hunky man and at least as competitive as Lane, if not more. I liked a lot of things about him, he was willing to go out of his way to ask about Lane from his brother. That was sweet at first, but he wasn't really willing to find out about her himself. And I really didn't love how he acted during the bike scene I already mentioned.
Then there's Simon. Part of the fun of the plot is that Simon and Jamie are brothers and they spend a lot of time together. Simon is a considerate, and kind person. I love the way he was always noticing the things Lane liked and wanted. And I loved how he was always trying to take care of her.
This book is almost all from Lane's perspective. But I really loved the glimpses into what the brothers were thinking that you get at the end of each chapter where a bit of their texting conversation is included. This was so much fun! It was fun to see each of the brothers personalities come out there. And I loved the insights into each chapter it gave.
This book is so much fun! Go grab a copy! You'll love it!
