  • About the book:

    Everyone knows they can count on Paige Alder. But between volunteering at church, putting in overtime at work, and helping her best friend plan an anniversary party, she's lucky to grab a cheese stick for dinner. Paige can't even remember the last time she had a few minutes to relax or dig into God's Word. Then she meets laid-back Tyler, an attractive, Jesus-loving guy. Will he be able to help Paige get her priorities on track?

    My Review:

    I have loved every book I read of this author's. I have read all of the paper copies and one of the Amazon ebook short stories. This book starts a new series featuring Paige Alder. She is in her twenties and single and a Christian. She is a secretary instead of a counselor at the adoption agency she works at. She is a yes person so she is always over busy between church, work, and her best friend Layla. Its pretty bad when you are frequently eating a cheese stick for dinner and live on coffee from Starbucks. The author's trademark humor comes through in this book with interesting new characters and plot. I really felt for Paige and longed for her to start saying no instead of yes so she could have a more balanced life. Then Mr. Tyler comes into the picture. I love the subtle way the relationship develops between Paige and Tyler. He is trying to be a good influence on her and get her to slow down. All of the characters were well developed. I did not like the cliff hanger at the end though. I would have liked more conclusion in certain areas. Thankfully it is the first book in a series. I can't wait until October so I can read more! Highly Recommended. Teens and young adults even maybe adults will enjoy this book.  :)
