    Whenever Lauren K Denton puts out another book, I m there I find her books to be great comfort reads, the kind of book you can relax into They are strikingly atmospheric, she has a gift for making you feel like you re right there with the characters In this book, we are both on a secluded artist s retreat with a single mother who is a budding photographer, and on a dairy farm with a husband and wife who clearly love each other but have let their difficulties conceiving come between them The Whenever Lauren K Denton puts out another book, I m there I find her books to be great comfort reads, the kind of book you can relax into They are strikingly atmospheric, she has a gift for making you feel like you re right there with the characters In this book, we are both on a secluded artist s retreat with a single mother who is a budding photographer, and on a dairy farm with a husband and wife who clearly love each other but have let their difficulties conceiving come between them The latter may not sound like a great setting, but it s actually warm and fun to read about I found it to be evenengaging than the first.Jenna has been slinging coffee at a local shop for quite some time now It s not the best job, but she enjoys her co workers and it supports her little family She has two little girls who think the world of her, and no help from their father She long ago abandoned her dream of being a serious photographer, but has started dabbling again in her spare time When a good friend extends an invitation to an incredibly exclusive retreat for artists, it s almost laughable at first How can she leave her children for two weeks, leave her job But there is the money she s been saving for a vacation and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity She s soon phoning her sister, pleading with her to take care of her kids while she s away Betsy can t say no to her sister Her husband Ty isn t as enthused about having two little visitors for a couple of weeks at first, but soon warms to the charming kids Throwing twopeople into their busy lives on the farm still adds some tension Unbeknownst to little sister Jenna, Betsy and Ty had been trying to have a child of their own, but things didn t work out Close to turning 30 with little hope of the thing she wants most, Betsy has been pushing Ty away As two weeks stretch into even longer and the girls begin to wonder if their mother is coming back for them anytime soon, Betsy and Ty have to protect their farm from a hurricane and it becomes clear that this summer will make or break their marriage.Super enjoyable story for me, ideal for curling up on the couch and getting lost in the words I found the characters to be fun to read and the situations certainly interesting enough to keep my attention If you enjoyed The Hideaway, I think you ll like this one too If you haven t read either, get on it I received a copy of this book from Net Galley and Thomas Nelson, thank you My review is honest and unbiased.

    For me, this book was a bit of a struggle The writing is well done and the plot is solid I just didn t feel much of a connection to the characters and the pace was slow I kept anticipating a big reveal or tragedy or transformation There was growth within our main characters two sisters who had grown apart through their adult years The emotional distance between them was only compounded by the literal physical distance in miles as they lead extremely different lives So if you are looking For me, this book was a bit of a struggle The writing is well done and the plot is solid I just didn t feel much of a connection to the characters and the pace was slow I kept anticipating a big reveal or tragedy or transformation There was growth within our main characters two sisters who had grown apart through their adult years The emotional distance between them was only compounded by the literal physical distance in miles as they lead extremely different lives So if you are looking for genuine and realistic fiction, this is a commendable novel I tend to gravitate towards energetic action stories, even if the story isrational and less fantasy Thanks to NetGalley and publishers for an advance reader s copy in exchange for this honest review.

    Hurricane Season by Lauren K Denton was a bit of a difficult read for me I found the pacing to be extremely slow and I felt like there wasn t much happening throughout the majority of the novel I was left with wantingfrom our two main characters and it just fell pretty flat for me The writing is beautiful and complex but I found myself skimming through a lot of the story because it just felt pretty boring to me I was waiting for that big change or transformation between our sisters Be Hurricane Season by Lauren K Denton was a bit of a difficult read for me I found the pacing to be extremely slow and I felt like there wasn t much happening throughout the majority of the novel I was left with wantingfrom our two main characters and it just fell pretty flat for me The writing is beautiful and complex but I found myself skimming through a lot of the story because it just felt pretty boring to me I was waiting for that big change or transformation between our sisters Betsy and Jenna. and it never came I found myself unable to connect well with the characters and it was hard for me to get overall invested in this one.Overall, this one was just ok Thank you so much to Netgalley and Thomas Nelson for the advanced arc in exchange for my honest review.Published to GR 3 31 18Publication date 4 3 18
