I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook through their Blogging for Books program. This is the second book in the series and I found myself wishing that I knew more of what had happened in the first book. Most of the characters were very good and interesting. There were several things that happened that seemed a little to coincidental. I enjoyed reading the story and had a hard time putting it down, but there were parts that I had a hard time believing. I did like the theme of the story about building bridges, and how it takes two people to try. I would give this book 3/5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson as part of their BookSneeze program. I lived in the South for 4 years. You can not live in the South and not know who Rick and Bubba are. I admit that I only listened to their show a few times, but I enjoyed it when I did. I was curious when I saw this book, and so I was excited to read it. I really enjoyed this book. It is written in a very readable way. I would call it an easy read. It was fun to learn how these two came together and how the Rick and Bubba show came to be. I appreciate that they are willing to share their faith and acknowledge the help of God in their lives. I would recommend this book to anyone. I would give it 4/5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah through their blogging for books program. I enjoyed this book. I really like Susan Meissners writing style. I found the information about the Salem witch trials fascinating. It was fun to see how all of the characters lives were similar and yet so different. Lauren comes to understand herself so much better through the events of the book. She comes to see herself as she truly is, and not just as she wants to see herself. I would give this book 3.5/5 stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program. I enjoyed this book. It talked a lot about being an intentional parent. It talked about building a strong relationship with your children while they are young, and then the relationship can continue on into their teenage years. The book also talked a lot about being confident in your parenting. Children can tell if you don't mean what you say, and they will take advantage of that. She also talked about involving God in our parenting. This book made me think about the way that I am parenting my children, and gave me some useful ways to improve my methods. I enjoyed it. I would give it 4/5 stars.
