The first part of the book was really good then it seemed to turn preachy, talking about faith and god, etc Next they were praying This wasn t what I expected and if it had been labeled a Christian romance then I would not have chosen to read it Beware.

Small town life, books really make it look like it is the way to go, not that I m ever going to move to a small town, but still.Obviously I enjoyed the setting of this book, I like the ideal quaintness of small town life, not sure if that is really how it is though Really liked the characters Katie was a strong smart woman, but because of this I had a slight problem with the premise of this book I understand people are in bad marriages where they don t realize it, because it is comfortable and i [...]

I never read a book with so many affairs at the beginning With that said I actually started out not liking this book, but as it progressed I fell in love with the characters especially Derek I thought he was just so amazing and such a great guy From the moment he sees Katy you can tell he feels something and when he is with her he doesn t want it to end but yet he is taking it slow for her I like how Katy grew in the story and became a person that I ended up really liking I love how she learned [...]
This book started out really strong, but unfortunately went downhill with a plot romance that moved too quickly Katherine finds out her husband Ron is cheating, she s shocked and decides to leave him They supposedly have a perfect marriage, so she is understandably devastated She takes off without speaking to her husband and plans on divorcing him Okay that s all fine, but she winds up meeting the hero Derek within a couple of days, and is basically in love within two weeks really This was so un [...]

When I started reading this I thought that something was in the water with all the infidelity and the illnesses it seems like a bit much But as the story unfolded and you got into it, you realise that this is not only a story about a woman trying to find herself but of one of deep love in the face of heatbreak and of finding peace in that love I love Nancy s books and this one was no exception I did find it hard to get into Katy s character but once I did it flowed better for me It s a sweet st [...]
Satisfying ReadLife After Perfect is a most satisfying read It touched my heart deeply tears and smiles abounded This is a story filled with heartache and heart healing Kudos to Nancy Naigle for giving readers a story with such a strong life s message and endearing characters to bring life to that message
Nancy did an awesome job with life after perfect She brought forth some difficult subjects that people deal with everyday Took their sufferings and renewed faith in the fact our plan is mapped out for us ahead of time No matter what we think is our perfect we have ultimately no control over what our destiny has in store for us.
What A Beautiful StoryLife sometimes seems perfect until things go wrong and you find it wasn t really perfect But you can rebuild and find a new and maybe better life Katy and Derek find each other when both were pretty low together they find a new life.
New state, New adventuresAs always, Nancy delivers I think I m going to like Boot Creek as much as Adams Grove I m assuming this won t be the last we hear of these new friends
This is a great story about two people trying to put their lives back together Katherine realizes her life isn t as perfect as she thought it was Derek is still getting over his late wife The two find each other accidentally The story is both sad and hopeful I really enjoyed it.
Life isn t perfect and neither are people This book isn t perfect, but it certainly captivated and held my interest throughout I generally read cozy mysteries and very few romances Nancy Naigle is one of my few exceptions I do so enjoy her writing I look forward to reading of her books.
Great character sNeeded a good summer read Love the way Nancy tells a story Feels like you belong in the little town, as the story progresses.
First time reading books by Nancy Naigle I won the 3rd book to this series and had to read the first books in the series Nancy Naigle is a very good writer Her characters are realistic and believable I had a hard time putting down the book it was definately a page turner I like how she shows you can learn how to deal with lose in peoples lives I am looking forward to the next books in this series Don t want to be a spoiler so am going to say If you are into romance with a little moral support on [...]
Enjoyed the storyThis is one of those stories where On wanted an epilogue at the end to bring me up to date on the two main characters, Derek and Katy Loved Derek, but Amy frustrated me some by not being honest along the way about her situation I assume they ended up together at the end and wanted to know about their lives a year or two into the future Beyond that, I still found the story worth reading and liked the supporting characters.
Another great readI really enjoyed this book by Nancy Naigle She develops her characters very well and her stories , while they may be easy to figure out, are always interesting to the end Not a lot of smutty, dirty sex, but there s enough romance that you know that the couples involved in the story are really human So far I have liked all of the books of hers that I have read.
