Shelves: bad
The book started ok, The characters are likeable Jill and Jacob. It did not take long for the book to get just stupid. Mike and Valerie secret 9 year marriage, what ever. These two family are intertwined but nobody know each other, stupid. The ending was horrible. If it is a wired way that they hope in by the rest of the books it did not work for me. Bad book

This book was so much fun to read! I could not put it down. All the characters introduced in this first book were so funny, normal and/or quirky. They all had issues that everyone has dealt with at some point in their life. The author has such an engaging way of writing that you find yourself fully involved in the story. It is like a "Soap Opera" in book form but has a much better story. If this book was made into a TV series I would watch it.

I became so involved with the "Cast" that I went to t

I enjoyed this book even though it has a bit dirtier then I had hoped and it really isn't a "Christian" story. This also the first book I have read by this author and if this book is any indication of her talents, I will read many more.

In today's story, we meet Jill, an owner of a badly wounded heart from a divorce and wants to stop over but be very weary of love. She meets a man named Jacob, who has it bad for Jill. At this point the author weaves a delightful story with a host of wonderful cha

This book has a handful of great characters and a storyline that kept me interested and wanting more. I plan on looking for more books by Claudia Hall Christian as this book was a great enjoyment. I highly recommend this book for those who need a nice escape.
This was pretty entertaining. With a cast of characters that rivals any soap opera. The story centers around Jill and her siblings and their antics. The story starts off and your along for the ride and let me tell you this story has multiple stories going on so pay attention!! It's plot might be a little convoluted but it works. I was never bored that is for sure. With psychics abounding and secrets between siblings (and there are a lot!) second chances, attempted murder, true love, and other in ...more

Fun, light antics in Denver with local cameos too!
This book was so enjoyable, the characters felt like friends, the story engaging. I do plan to go on with the following installments. The only downside was the characters were so connected - no one was outside. It is also a quick read. I was looking for something to clear my mind between my normal diet of paranormal romance and found new characters to get involved with. This story is fun!

Denver Cereal begins with our heroine, Jill, making a choice -- and it doesn't end the way she expects it to

Too many characters that are too closely linked with one another became confusing.
Annoying characters, very predictable story line with the exception of the attack.
So many spelling and grammar errors, glad it was free.

Found this book on BN website as a free book for the Nook. Was pleasantly surprised on how fun it was to read. It was a bit confusing at first with all the different characters, but then they all started to flow together and was much easier to follow. It was really fun to read a book with local places and people involved. The characters seemed like every day people with every day issues. Just fun read. This is a "serial" book, and I've already downloaded the 2nd part from and can' ...more

This book is awesome

Claudia Hall Christian makes the characters seem so real. I am so going to read the rest of the series.

dumb! The families are all intertwined but oblivious to what goes on between them. The whole story was sex. What a waste of a good story idea.

I'm really enjoying this series. Its goes to my email and I read a new part of the chapter every day. Her other books were good too: The Fey, Who I am, Learning to Stand, Cascade and Ceilia's Puppies. When I first started reading it I could download the first book for free and have been reading it ever since, We are on Chapter 208 Part 3 (there's about 5-6 parts to each chapter.The setting is Denver Colorado so the talk about specfic streets and restaurants located there. Very interesting.

I love the Denver cereal series - the characters are very likeable and very down to earth. From the first page of the first story I was captivated. A must read for all Claudia Hall Christian fans and those people who should be fans!

I first read The Fey series which I thought was wonderful. Grammar is sometimes not the greatest, but it is one of the reasons that the price of the books are lower so they didn't spend too much money on editing (author explanation). The characters are delightful and the plot really pulls you in. Like the Fey series, I can't put them down and I became very involved with all their stories. This series is highly recommended.

I'm not sure what to think. It was hyped almost like a mystery and I got it free through my BookBub deal of the day... But it's more like a rambling half-assed romance. And I get that it's set in Denver, but the insistence on naming every street they drove on and buildings they went to just seemed like overkill. As if it were screaming, "Look! Look! I can prove it's Denver!"

Enjoyable story, but convoluted with so many characters; it got confusing at times. Pretty good character development and plot; it felt like reading a soap opera. It's interesting how the story was improved by multiple people, yet the document maintained a fair amount of errors. Overall, a good read, and a free download.
Story is good, characters are interesting, but after reading for something like 600 pages, the book ends but the story doesn't. You need to go to the next book, then the next, and then continue on to the website. This book is not a stand-alone in a series, it's just one part of an extremely long story with no apparent ending.

I was really disappointed. I really liked this book in the beginning and couldn't put it down. Then too many storylines were introduced and it became very hard to follow. The series continues online at the Denver Cereal website. I started reading but have lost interest. Maybe I will start reading again later.

This one was an easy and nice read. There were a bit too many characters to keep up with for my likings. I also didn't quite get Celia's role, other than being the mother and the hassle with the father was also a bit much.

What really surprised me though was the ending! A tad fast, or was it just me?

Really enjoyable book. Almost read like a soap opera...several pages of one scene with specific characters...then it jumps to a scene with other characters...then back again. Well written, with lots of characters, so you have to pay attention!

If it weren't for all the editing issues (read the kindle edition), I think I would have enjoyed this book more.
