Title: Just Let Go

Author: Courtney Walsh

Release Date: June 5, 2018

Genre: Contemporary Romance

For Quinn Collins, buying the flower shop in downtown Harbor Pointe fulfills a childhood dream, but also gives her the chance to stick it to her mom, who owned the store before skipping town twenty years ago and never looking back. Completing much-needed renovations, however, while also competing for a prestigious flower competition with her mother as the head judge, soon has Quinn in over her head. Not that she’d ever ask for help.

Luckily, she may not need to. Quinn’s father and his meddling friends find the perfect solution in notorious Olympic skier Grady Benson, who had only planned on passing through the old-fashioned lakeside town. But when a heated confrontation leads to property damage, helping Quinn as a community-service sentence seems like the quickest way out—and the best way to avoid more negative press.

Quinn finds Grady reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s uptight and too regimented. Yet as the two begin to hammer and saw, Quinn sees glimpses of the vulnerability behind the bravado, and Grady learns from her passion and determination, qualities he seems to have lost along the way. But when a well-intentioned omission has devastating consequences, Grady finds himself cast out of town—and Quinn’s life—possibly forever. Forced to face the hurt holding her back, Quinn must finally let go or risk missing out on the adventure of a lifetime.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

I loved this book. So much so that I hated having to put it down for the non important things such as cleaning house or cooking dinner! Just Let Go was so realistic, so much like people everywhere today. And I love the Title because letting go and Letting God in on our problems would be so much easier than trying to fix them ourselves.

Quinn and Brady both had so many issues to fight through. But first they have to like each other because they didn’t get off to a very good start. Both had anger issues caused by heir past and they just didn’t want to let the past go. Would a real relationship work for the two?

Along with my love of  story, the characters are fantastic and they make the story so much  more  interesting. Ms. Walsh deals with a lot issuess that so many people face today, it’s  hard to pinpoint just one.  And the plot flows so smoothly. I appreciate that this book is full of love and redemption, caring and loving people. This is an amazing Contemporary Fiction for anyone looking for a good clean fun read.

CFBA Presents…..A Sweethaven Homecoming by Courtney Walsh

This week, theChristian Fiction Blog Allianceis introducingA Sweethaven HomecomingGuideposts (August 2012)

byCourtney WalshABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Courtney Walsh is a published author, scrapbooking expert, theatre director and playwright. Her debut novel, A Sweethaven Summer, was released in February, 2012 by Guideposts Books, and will be followed by two additional novels in the series. She has also written two papercrafting books, Scrapbooking Your Faith and The Busy Scrapper and is currently working on her third, The Scrapcrafter’s Idea Book (F&W Publications, February, 2013.)

Courtney has been a contributing editor for Memory Makers Magazine and Children’s Ministry Magazine and is a frequent contributor to Group Publishing curriculum, newsletters and other publications. She has also written several full-length musicals, including her most recent, The Great American Tall Tales and Hercules for Christian Youth Theatre, Chicago. Courtney is a member of ACFW and is the current PR Manager for Webster’s Pages, a scrapbooking manufacturer. She lives in Colorado with her ultra creative husband and three children.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Suzanne’s daughter, Campbell, journeys there in search of answers to her questions about her mother’s history.

Suzanne’s three friends-Lila, Jane, and Meghan-were torn apart by long-buried secrets and heartbreak. Though they haven’t spoken in years, each has pieces of a scrapbook they made together in Sweethaven.Suzanne’s letters have lured them all back to the idyllic lakeside town, where they meet Campbell and begin to remember what was so special about their long Sweethaven summers.

As the scrapbook reveals secrets one by one, old wounds are mended, lives are changed, and friendships are restored-just as Suzanne intended.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

A Sweethaven Homecoming continues the story of Meghan, Jane, Lila, Adele and Campbell as they work through their differences and friends as well as with their husbands and children. Country Music Star Meghan is shocked that ex-husband Nick wants full custody of their twins, and  flies home immediately after finding out about the custody suit. But why should she be so surprised? She hasn’t seen her twins in two years! Jane still can’t forgive Meghan because she still thinks she is partly responsible for her son, Alex’s death. Lila has filed for divorce from Tom because she can’t forgive him for being the missing father of her childhood friend, Suzanne’s daughter, Campbell. Campbell was excited about spending the summer at Sweethaven because of her budding relationship with Luke, only to find out he is really being distant, and hardly speaks to her. And Adele is finally spending more time with her grandchildren, which is Meghan’s twins. And she wonders if Meghan will ever more back and claim her children.

 

Wow! All of this makes for a novel full of drama, and that is just what this story is! Another Courtney Walsh book that I thoroughly enjoyed. However I did think a little too much emphasis was put on Meghan at times. Even though she’s dealing with a lot, so is Nick and her twins, so at times I really didn’t feel sorry for her. There is so much in this book that I will just say when you start reading, you will not want to put it down until you find out what happens with everyone involved!!

 

Crafted with characters that are so believable and real, this is a story that sticks with you a long time after you finish reading. I only hope for another book in this series. This is truly a book about love and forgiveness, and I appreciate Courtney showing how God’s forgiveness can change hearts and restore love between old friends, husband and wives, mothers and daughters and other family members. This is a book well worth your read and I highly recommend it.

My Thoughts on this Book!

Wow Courtney Walsh has written an amazing debut book! I didn’t want it to end, and I sure hope there will be a Book 2. With a wonderful cast of believable characters that you grow to know and love, and a heart-breaking story, you are sure to want to read this awesome book.

Suzanne was a good single mom who lovingly raised her daughter Campbell the right way. Only she never wanted Suzanne to know who her dad was. A phone call prompted Campbell to visit her mom because she had something important to tell her, but it was too late for both Suzanne and Campbell. This started a whirlwind hunt for answers and to find her dad in the process. Along the journey, many unknown things were brought to surface, putting closure to many answers to secrets looming at Sweethaven.

This is a book you do not want to miss! It is just one awesome book, one of the best I’ve read in a while. Go grab your copy and enjoy a few days comfort and rest in “A Sweethaven Summer.”
