My personal Rating-
Eeeeeee! After having books four and five on my TBR for almost three years, I am so tickled pink to finally read them! After experiencing the Maya Davis fourth book with a new main character and enjoying it, I was more than happy to read this continuation of the Lauren Holbrook series—that happens to not be in Laurie’s point of view. Annie is definitely a pretty close 180-degree difference in personality compared to Laurie, but she still has that great faith and a fun sense of humor. (I just happen to like all of Erynn Mangum’s leading girls and feel a kindred spirit with all of them. :) ) Really enjoyed this novel and cannot wait to start the fifth book next!

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
