I loved this 20 chapter book. The beginning grabbed my attention and never let go. Lucian Lake (cute name) oversees construction of the Skyway bridge while Grace attempts to jump off it. An image startles her, causing her to fall and dangle on the edge. It was an intense moment because I was very worried about her safety.

Poor Grace. She was forced into therapy multiple times by her mother because she didn’t approve of her daughter. Instead of accepting Grace for who she was, her mom wanted to co

Grace: An Eternal Beloved Novel

This book surprised me, it wasn’t what I expected. Now let me say what I expected was good…but it exceeded even my expectations.

I was excited because I could not figure out HOW the author would put a spin on the mysterious stranger aspect…also the main character’s preoccupation with Death, I was wondering to myself… was she some type of Supernatural being… where Death was a type of curse placed on her, to keep her from her true mission? My thoughts were wandering t

I was pleasantly surprised with this book, the beginning took me for a loop... it definitely hooked me in and had me wanting to find out what was going to happen.

So here it is... ever since Grace was young she knew she wanted to commit suicide on her 18th birthday. She was never good enough for her family, she was the "black sheep" so to speak. When she finally decides to jump off of the bridge to kill herself she changes her mind, but then a panther shows up ready to kill her whether she wants

Okay, let's be honest here. I wasn't really sure what I was expecting going into it, I have mixed feelings about this book (I was expected more paranormal than it had). On one hand I couldn't put it down, I wanted to know what was going to happen. On the second hand, I hated Grace. It was like watching a soup opera or a novela, it had so much drama going on that I didn't care if I didn't like the main character, everything else kept me on the edge of my seat. Some of the other characters of cour ...more

Let me start with this totally wasn't what I was expecting. The first part of the book is a little slow, and I kept wondering is this a contemporary piece or a paranormal piece? And then everything clicked into place within the last thirty pages. What's so different about this book compared to my other recent reads is this one spans about ten years of Grace' life. And that could be why I thought the beginning was a little slow.

While reading the book, I thought the description was a terrible desc

Since her fifteenth birthday Grace has tried to end her life. She almost succeeds on her 18th birthday, Halloween night, but an external force almost startles her off the bridge that she was prepared to jump off, and a survival instinct kicked in. As she is dangling from the bridge, holding on for her life, Lucian Lake mysteriously appears to rescue her. Tall, handsome, and charming, Lucian becomes the older brother and best friend that she’d never had.

The author does an excellent job of definin

Mother, Educator, Wife, and Author. My mind wanders with curiousity. My loyalties lie with a time when my life was "so called", I was full of "Teen Spirit", and the best love in the world came from a "Champion Lover". I'm obsessed with the minds of men and women who have made a major difference for humanity. From Jesus to Jared Leto. :) Words are my playground. In them lies my passion. I live in P ...more
