Stephanie Steele was recovering from breast cancer when she encountered Finn Hartley, a former lover from four years ago. Although the breakup was her idea, the chance meeting opened her mind and heart to the possibility she may have made a mistake. Their differences did not seem so monumental to her and she realized the years apart had changed them. Finn dealt with his pain, moved forward in life, and volunteered with Casting for Recovery. Stephanie kept her pain secretive and overworked to avo...more

Hooked by Betina Krahn is a 90-page story that hooks the reader from page one. The book is part of Harlequin’s More than Words Outreach where famous authors write about real life issues. Betina Krahn recognizes the work of Donna Fischer, the Arizona program coordinator for Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit organization that runs fly-fishing for cancer patients. All that said it is still a romance. Something Krahn does very well.

Stephanie Steele moved to Atlanta to be closer to her fami...more

Great story!

This book really "gets it." All the emotions and fears of breast cancer survivors. Also, I had never heard of casting for recovery. What a great organization!

Angie
This book moved me to tears often. As a person who works with cancer patients it hit close to home. As I read the book, I felt as if I were Stephanie. The differences in her public persona and her private persona, the struggles of her heart (of not being whole) of wanting something but not knowing how to obtain it due to insecurities. I think this is a wonderful book for anyone, but also should be given to those who have breast cancer. I love the idea of this Casting for Recovery group, and I ha...more

Wonderful story. Well written. What a wonderful program to highlight.

This book hits on issues no women wants to face but many have no choice. It was well written and makes women believe their out bodies is really nothing but a shell. We sometimes forget that what is on the inside is really all that matters. You can be the most beautiful on the outside but your attitude makes one more ugly then anything in this world. Different cancers are issues we all deal with at one time in our life. This is a hard warming book with lots of plus and well worth the read.

After I finished reading this story, I actually got online to find out more about groups that help people adjust to a 'new' life after/with cancer.

It's impossible to ignore that this book was written as a tribute to a program created to help breast-cancer survivors to cope with it, while learning together to fly-fish.
After the so-boring and academic introduction, I was impressed by the tone of the book who really rings true, is neither depressing, nor over-optimistic. I really liked both main characters, with their flaws and development over time.
Caro
This was a touching and inspiring book. I liked the main characters as well as all the rest. I enjoyed reading this book and would read it again. There were emotions, fun, understanding, self-discovery and humor. This was fun and heartfelt and good for a quick read with a upbeat and inspiring mood. Enjoy!
Kelly Akemann
A pretty quick easy read. A topic like cancer can easily turn a good story into a sad,.depressive one. Betina Krahn kept it a good stoey while showing there is life after a devastating diagnosis. It was fairly predictable, but overall.a.good book.
Christine
Now this is how a quick read should be! You connect quickly with the main character and the relationship doesn't feel rushed or phoney.
Arlene
Great book!!!!! If you know someone with breast cancer this book gives you hope.
Jennifer
A good book dealing with a difficult topic and a wonderful support organisation
April
The middle goes a little slow, but the ending more than makes up for it.
