Daisy Parker isn’t the woman that rock star Robby Grant would have imagined himself falling for. She’s soft-spoken, sweet, and lives by a strange code the struggling musician is recognizing as Biblical.

And he’s helpless against it.

Even if Daisy is hard-pressed to believe that a man like Robby would see her—a woman long forgotten by the rest of the world—as anything mor

This book is more than just a romance. It’s not all unicorns and rainbows. It shows what love is like in the real world. There are fights and people make mistakes. Communication is important and forgiveness is necessary.

Being a single woman, in a wheelchair, about Daisy’s age, I related to this novel on a deep level. I saw a lot of myself in Daisy; the stubbornness, the insecurity, the loneliness. Kimberly, hit the nail on the head with regards to what it’s like living with a disability and won

We each have a story we carry with us, in many cases, several stories where we, ourselves do not know how it will end. If I was to delve into the story of college, and one of the brightest moments I had that carried me through graduate schools, it was that of meeting author Kimberly Miller. Kim was one of our group trying to find our own path and way through college. We al loved literature and one of my defining moments from college was following in her foot steps as an intern for the Pittsburgh ...more

When the lead singer of the mega-successful rock group For Granted is released from rehab, spending six months staying clean he hopes to rebound and get his life back on track but in a different manner than he is used to. In rehab, Robby Grant finally understood what his agent meant, in making more money than he could ever spend, he'd avoided his real needs - to be loved for who he was as a human being and he finally understood he also had a drive to make someone proud of him. How to go about th ...more

A most worthy debut by Kimberly Miller. The story of a man who can’t grow up but has promise and a woman broken and abandoned by illusions of love was such an enjoyable read. I love it when I can invest in characters and want to hug them or smack them. Robby was so redeemable with the core of people who believe in him and real that I cheered for him from the start, seeing him through the eyes of his Uncle Nick, even though I wanted to dislike him and his immense ego. But contrasting him with Dai ...more

I just loved Daisy and Robby’s story it was sweet, warm and has a message to it. People come in and out of our lives just as problems and difficulties come in and out of our lives. Often times we live in fear of something and do our best to keep our emotions in check trying to fool ourselves by saying we don’t care and won’t allow ourselves to invest in other people but also in not living our lives to our full potential.

The path wasn’t smooth but with the help of good friends offering support, c

Picking Daisy by Kimberly M. Miller is an enjoyable and inspirational read.

The story centers on the relationship between Daisy, the musically talented heroine whose life experiences have changed her forever physically and left her mentally scarred, and hero Robby, a once successful musician who is spiraling toward rock bottom because of some bad choices.

What I loved about this story is the very gradual progression of friendship to romance. The subtle spark between these two feels real from the

This book was like a plane taking off. It took its time but once it got in the sky there was no stopping it. The characters draw you in to their story because their story is unique and the characters relatable. Daisy is lovable from the get go, but it took a good 1/4 of the book for me to tolerate Robby. As the book goes on you see the problems that both characters have to face and it becomes easy to cheer for them both. There are parts where it seems their story is all going to fall apart. It d ...more

Picking Daisy is not your average novel by a long shot. The characters grabbed me and pulled me in, Daisy, so very likable from the start, Robby handsome and charming ... like a little boy you can't say no to. But through the story, that egocentric but adorable rock star wheedles his way into your heart. The supporting characters were also well drawn, and this extremely well-written novel is sure to be a favorite. I was given an ARC copy of the book, but truly enjoyed it on all levels and the op ...more

This was a really good book. It was one of those books once you start reading you cant put It down. you just cant wait to see what is going to happen next. The characters were different and I would have loved a few more chapters. I didn't want it to end. A follow up book would be great. Daisy and Robby seemed so different, but when it comes to love we are all the same. It was a refreshing, clean
read. I loved it!!!! I would recommend this book.

A sweet story about the two people who should be most unlikely to ever meet. Both of them keep their deep, dark secrets well-hidden and both don't know what to do with the tenderness they feel for each other--except to continue going along on their own individual, lonely paths. I enjoyed the delightful cast of secondary characters who put so much effort in getting Robby and Daisy to realize their mistakes. This charming tale is well worth reading and highly recommended.

Full Disclosure - I went to high school with the author (and we both teach at the same college now), but that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a delightful romance. I wasn't sure what a Christian romance would be like as I am not big on stereotyping, but I was immediately impressed by the author's ability to build authentic characters while telling an interesting and compelling story. Let me know if you want your copy signed! ;-)

This was my first time reading anything from this author. This story is told from both perspectives of: the hero and heroine.

Interwoven in the story are people you root for, a dilemma that could go several ways, and lifestyles of the rich and famous.
