This is one of the sweetest books ever. It wasn't just 'aw, this is fluffy and uplifting!' it was realistic and BEAUTIFUL.
-- The writing style was so sweet! It played like a movie in my mind. Another EPIC thing was the way things were described from an artist's perspective... with the colors and all. Just, gah!
-- The Story/Setting was vivid, wonderful description, and well done!
-- The themes were incredible. The way hope was brought to life, how the love could be felt bouncing off the pages, ho
It’s rare that my family hears me gushing out praise over a contemporary romance novel, very rare, but they heard me sing the praises of this dear and meaningful novel by Michaela Bush.

To be completely honest, the opening scenes and first encounters with the main characters fell flat for me, and I spent the first few minutes reading nit-picking at the writing style. Very quickly, though, I found myself engaged in the story and genuinely awed and in respect of the author.

I’d heard good things about this book and so picked it up one time. Unfortunately I only got to around 14% before I stopped. There were a few reasons I didn’t finish.

1.) I wasn’t interested in the characters enough to keep reading.

2.) My biggest complaint was this. The single young lady invites a homeless young man to stay in the bottom of her Victorian home, and eat with her, and there is not one else living there with them. She wakes him up in the morning too. That is not something I can condo

I have been a writer at heart since I was six years old. After over a decade of dreaming, my first book "Welcome Home" was published in July 2016, and more have been quick to follow! I am a Christian and enjoy time with my family (both biological and church) and my horses. I hope my books inspire you in some way, shape, or form. In today's world, we don't need crazy, offended, and sultry, we need ...more
