But he worries that his feelings for the former bad girl could put his family at risk for small-town scandal. Lana knows she should steer clear of Davis. Yet she can't resist spending time with the h...more
Okay to be perfectly honest when I requested to review this book I did not realize this would be Christian romance. It usually doesn't bother me. I have read a few Christian Fictions before where it was pretty laid back, just a nice clean read. This one had a bit more overwhelming references in it, but I guess with a Christmas book it was kind of expected.
Anyway, overall just the general story-line was actually kind of ...more
Davis' children pray for a new mom "with brown hair" and right after they do brown-haired Lana and her daughter move to town. Davis remembers Lana as the bad girl from high school but despite malicious town gossip--and his own sister warning him away--decides to give adult Lana the benefit of th ...more
You can't get much cuter than three little kids who want to get their parents together! Two strong, well-developed characters and three children make this a very good book! Though Davis Turner is your typical character - widowed with two kids and raised in a good home with two loving parents, Lana Ross is a different story. An abusive mom, an absent dad, and a dysfunctional childhood put her and her sister in troubled times. Lana came out of it after she found Jesus. She's mov ...more
My Review: Sugarplum Homecoming
Parents should never sleep especially during the day when kids will climb anything. That would be scary to see your kids climb rocks to a waterfall. Nathan and Page got their dad to take them on a picnic by the falls. So while he slept they could climb up the rocks and get behind waterfall and say a special prayer. They want a new mom with brown hair.
Sugarplum is sweet, laughed so hard when Davis told how he scared some teenagers that breaking into her haunt ...more

"The jig was up. She'd prayed to get settled before her tainted past charged in with all guns blazing. Apparently, God, Who'd brought her this far, expected her to face her fears head-on."
Sugarplum Homecoming features a reformed bad girl, and I enjoyed the twist from the typical bad-boy hero in most inspy's. Lana has returned to Whisper Falls hoping to give Sydney a stable home, but she worries that the small town won't let the past stay there. And Davis? Considering his children's w ...more
This is a wonderful story that takes place over several months not just a mere few weeks with issues that take that long to fully work out. I must admit I saw this book as pretty predictable once the plot was laid out a little more, but regardless I found my ...more
This is a good story that's well written. The biblical messages reflect my beliefs regarding forgiveness, change, and courage through Jesus Christ. The life problems presented in the book are real problems adults face, with real solutions based not on violence and hatred, but on forgiveness and love. Good job.
Sometimes reputations are hard to live up too, but they are equally hard to shake. What happens in high school should stay in high school.
This story is about replacing a bad reputation with a new life full of love and hope. Running scared takes time to overcome.
