- A bit of suspense, intrigue, and romance by Vera on 5/23/13
My thoughts: She's got a career as a respected pediatric physician in Colorado. Friends. Security. Just no husband. No kids of her own. And that is mostly fine. Then an emergency situation in a restaurant throws new options in her path.
There is teen who has lost Mom and Dad in a terrible accident and now he is living with his much older, single brother. Top it off, the teen was adopted from the foster system when only six years old. But his now guardian-brother is bothered and bewildered by the responsibilities of caring for a child or rather a teen. The emergency restaurant episode is clear evidence of this. As it turns out, the emergency is right up Dr. Kendall's alley - allergies! But the big brother really doesn't want involvement with Dr. Kendall because they seemed to butt heads at every turn. But soon another emergency emerges.
Big brother, the grounded pilot, has a medical issue of his very own. One he hopes will go away on its own but cripples his flying future. The interaction and growth of friendship between Dr. Kendall and Air Force pilot Griffin Walker is riddled with twinkling fun, God's direction in ways they sometimes have trouble following, and attraction to each other that bewilders and annoys.
Throw a bit of suspense and intrigue into the mix and you have a delightful contemporary story that is a good weekend or beach read. Enjoy and then pass it along to a friend.

- Things Are Not Always As They Appear by Maureen on 5/17/13
I enjoyed reading this sweet story. Things are not always as they appear. We are with Dr Kendall Hayes who is thirty-six, and not married. She thought she could have it all...a medical career, a husband, and children. She is at that point in life where it doesn't look like it is going to happen. She is again going to be a bridesmaid in her friends wedding.
There is so much going on in Dr Hayes life, busy, busy. Her chance meeting with an old friend Dr Heath Parker, may put romance in the picture. He seems to be all that Kendall would want!
She also stumbles upon, really, when she is at the restaurant with her friends, Ian Walker as he collapses and nearly dies. He is there with his brother Colonel Griffin Walker.
We deal with some tough subject here, but God is in their lives. All they need to do is trust. There is also a side story here with one of Dr Kendall's office workers. She is trying to adopt a child, and things are not going well, but help comes from an unlikely source.
We find things are not always as they appear, and we will root for hopefully the right people to come out on top! This is a great, fast, page turning read, and the only part I was disappointed in was....I wanted more!
