what a lovely book it was!

while you might find many books with the same plotline- boy meets girl, they have sex, girl gets pregnant and drama embrakes. Misty Provencher managed to do it differently, thus making it her own.

the question posed is different: what happens when the GUY wants to keep the baby and the GIRL does not? does he have a say?

let me tell you, Landon does, and he tries his best to make sure that his opinion is heard and considered.

I enjoyed Landon's and Sher's story, their r

Four and a half stars: A sexy read with terrific characters that will leave you smiling!

Like many good intentions when drinking is involved, they often fly out the window. In a moment of drunken abandon, Landon makes a mistake. He ends up having a steamy sexual encounter with the bride’s best friend Sher. After the fact, he discovers that Sher was

The one and only complaint I have with this book is it was too short for me! Hale Maree (book 1 to this one) is one of my favs, like top 5. I fell in love with Landon in the first book and I was so excited for Full of Grace. I wasn't disappointed! I read this book in one sitting completely ignoring my screaming child and starving husband. I love the fact the book was told completely from Landons pov which is something I haven't seen in the new adult genre. It was refreshing not knowing what Sher ...more

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 20th MAY 2013:

RATING: 5 BEAUTIFUL LANDON STARS

After falling for Oscar Maree in Hale Maree, I wondered how Misty was going to write Landon. Oscar is a beautiful , phwoaaaarrr!! smexi lad whose persistence won Hale over, not to mention his...........

Misty wrote a most gorgeous voice in Landon. The lad is this mix of humour, thinks outside the box, not afraid to accept responsibility.... and can he make your toes curl.

Full of Grace by Misty Provencher


Where to start? I have told pretty much everyone that this book was fan-freakin-tastic and absolutely hilarious. I couldn't even tell you the last time I laughed so much, I was giggling and gasping all the way through.

Let me start by telling you about Landon, cause its in his pov - he's 24, has 5 older sisters, a job he likes, a bestie from childhood, a filthy mopless apartment, and he's a typical male he thinks with his penis. He's the perfect combination of crude and sweet. Honest and rati

Maja (The Nocturnal Library)
Full of Grace is a newly released companion to Hale Maree, Misty Provencher’s touching and original New Adult story that features an arranged marriage. It is, in my opinion, a slightly superior, more mature work, with better character development, better pacing and a far more believable plot. I’m rarely comfortable with female authors writing from a male perspective (or vice versa, really), but Misty Provencher gave such a lovely, genuine voice to Landon, and she was consistent throughout the no ...more

I didn't have high hopes for Landon after Hale Maree. After all, he had been dating a psychopath. Didn't say much for him. Plus, his looks could never compare to Oscar (I am such a sucker for dark hair & blue eyes after all). But Misty managed to get me hooked on a blonde guy with the way she wrote Landon.


**spoiler alert**






I loved this story and how incredibly sweet he was, especially in such a difficult situation. Standing his ground with Sher's crazy mom, writing love letters to his unborn

This was an ok read except for the CONSTANT GIGGLING Sher does which was annoying coz it made her sound so vapid and dumb.

This went downhill for me when Sher didn't come clean about her pregnancy to Landon. She tried to foist off her unborn baby to him which didn't really sit well with me coz she was unsure of who is the father. And to top it off her duplicity, she slept with him before coming clean. For me this is like leading him on or trying to soften him up for the big reveal. The author tri

This book is beyond amazing. I am in love with this unique story and characters. Landon...oh my gosh sweet Landon. I thought he was just a partying airhead of sorts in Hale Maree, but he so proved me wrong in this book. He should be an example of how all men should act. He is a definite swoon worthy book boyfriend. Then we have Sher.This girl is so strong an amazing...I even fell in love with her giggles.

Full of Grace is the companion book to Hale Maree by Misty Provencher. It tells the story of Landon Grace and Sher Traifere. I hadn't read Hale Maree, where these two first meet, but in all honesty it didn't detract from my enjoyment or understanding of the story.

Full of Grace picks right up where book one Hale Maree ended. In Hale Maree we met Oscar's best friend Landon. He's been partnered with Hale's best friend Sher in the wedding party. Sher is beautiful with long blonde hair, smells incredible and has an infectious giggle. Prepare to hear about that giggle a LOT. At times I would picture sponge bob laughing. Even Landon can't decide if he loves or hates the giggles. But Sher is only eighteen and I found that the constant state of giggles reminds yo ...more

I honestly don't know what to expect on this book. I enjoyed Halle Marre and after reading it I vowed to myself that I would read its companion novel and happily it didn’t fail. Yay!

Full of Grace doesn’t have the most original line of plot; this is not the first pregnancy-romance type of book I have read just like Halle Marre which is about arranged marriage. Like the latter, I was curious as to how the author would portray a story that is already done more than a couple of times, would she do s

Landon dances the night away with our Sher at their Best Friends' Oscar & Hale's wedding and can't keep the Sparks at bay. These two can not stop flirting with each other, they have really good chemistry and with a little booze thrown in on Landon's part one thing leads to another. Let's just say Fun was had and now enter in the repercussions...
Landon comes to find out that Sher is pregnant, without a second thought he steps up and says we will handle it. I will take care of you and our baby

How good can a female author be at writing a male voice in a book? In this case, enough to sweep me up for a day and fall completely in love with a total guy’s guy named Landon!

We first meet Landon in Hale and Oscar’s story, Hale Maree. Full of Grace immediately picks up where Hale Maree ended (yay!). Landon is nursing a bruised ego but thoroughly enjoying himself at Hale and Oscar’s wedding. He’s paired up in the wedding party with Sher, Hale’s best friend in the entire world. We all know I’m n

I loved Oscar and Hale’s story in Hale Maree, so I was excited when Misty announced there would be a companion novel. Then add the fact that it’s about Landon and Sher makes me a happy camper. I’ve loved everything I’ve read by Misty so far, and Full of Grace is no exception.

You really don’t need to read Hale Maree before reading this, but it’s nice to do so. Full of Grace picks up where Hale Maree left off, except now we’re getting Landon’s POV. Landon and Sher have a one night stand at a we

Misty does it again. She created another story that grabbed ahold of me and was unwilling to let go. I adore this series and even think I loved this one more than HALE MAREE. That is definitely saying something because I inhaled that one and loved every single bit of it. But the whole storyline of FULL OF GRACE, the characters, and the uncertainty of everything they were facing...it had me experiencing all kinds of emotions. I was a mess. Yes, a good mess though.

I was so excited to hear that Landon was going to get his own story, however I didn’t think it was going to be like this! I had the idea that Sher, Hale’s best friend, was going to play an important part and I knew it was going to be awesome. I was completely blown away by the turn out of the book. It’s no secret that Landon was my favorite, even from Hale Maree. There was just something about Landon that stuck with me and had me begging the author to give him his own book.

Full Of Grace by Misty Provencher was a very unique story. I wasn't sure if I was going to be lost. It is a companion novel the previous book is called Hale Maree. It originated between the couples best friends. I wasn't lost at all. I loved these characters and all their quirkiness. Definitely a story I am so happy to got a hold of.

From my blog.

**ARC provided by author for an honest review**

When got the email to sign up for the blog tour, I could only remember that I really liked Hale Maree, but for the life of me, I couldn't remember what the book was about. So, I had to find out the book and read some parts of it. It took me some time to remember the story line and figure out who's Landon and if I liked him, but once I did... Let's just say that I was signed up as fast as lightening.

"Full of Grace" opens where book one (Hale Maree) left us, with Hale & Oscar's wedding. This time Misty focuses on Landon *sigh* & Sher. This unlikely pair share a drunken passionless & very brief encounter. Although Landon finds Sher attractive, he has no intention of a serious relationship with her & the two go about their separate lives. Unbeknownst to Landon, that night resulted in a life long commitment that will forever bind him to Sher.........She's pregnant. Landon is det

After reading HALE MAREE, I was really excited for FULL OF GRACE. HALE MAREE was phenomenal and to know more about this series was definitely a high for me. So, FULL OF GRACE released and finding out it was about Landon and Sher, I was let down a tad, but still eager to find out more about Hale's best friend.
So, I began reading and found that FULL OF GRACE was written in Landon's POV. What a cool switch. I knew then that I was going to like this. So, the first chapter begins and

If you haven’t read Hale Maree, I strongly recommend that you do before reading this book.
Landon began endearing himself to me in Hale Maree. He seemed so fun of fun and laughter. I was excited to follow up with him in his own story. Writing the whole book from Landon’s POV was brilliant. His personality was perfect for telling what, at times, was a very heavy story. I loved being inside his head. He is funny, passionate, a little alpha dominate, determined, and loving.

Misty is one of my favorite authors, and to date I've read everything she has written, at least that I know of. Since I really enjoyed reading Hale Maree, I was extremely excited to read this 'companion book'. I think that Misty took on an edgy storyline here, which is something I admire about her writing, she doesn't fit in a box.

Landon was a sweet guy who just watched his best friend get married. He had no way of knowing how this night would change his life forever.

An enjoyable read! Both the first and second book have characteristics that I loved more than the other. While I do love that Landon has a bit more sense of humor, I still love Oscar a bit more because I find him a little more of a romantic (not that Landon isn't romantic in his own way as well). Landon, however, is more sex crazed which adds to the humor as he always tries to contain his sexual urges in the strangest of ways. (;

Although I didn't read Hale Maree the book that introduced the characters to this book I thought this book could stand on its own.
This story was very cute. Sher and Landon met at their best friends wedding and they had a one night stand . Or was it ? Sher was a 18 year old virgin when she met Landon and once Landon figured the virgin part out he can't help but feel guilty and try to contact her.

The only boy in a large family, Landon makes a refreshing male lead, in that his immediate thought isn't to wash his hands of Sher, or to encourage her to terminate her unwanted pregnancy, but to try to persuade her to keep the baby. Not that he initially thinks the whole thing through, which he realises when he and Sher start living together and reality kicks in.

Essentially this is a love story in a similar vein to Knocked Up, only it's a lot more sexy. Landon and Sher initially have very littl

While Hale Maree was lighter and funnier, Full of Grace was much deeper and serious. This time, MP tackles the storyline of the man who wants the girl to keep the baby, through the H's pov. Laced with humor, from Landon stealing Sher’s pants to fulfilling Sher’s “mom” bucket list, Landon must convince Sher that although her fear of turning out like her mother mayb be very founded, her life may not necessary turn out that way.
