Any Dream Will Do (New Beginnings #4) Reviews
Such a good and sweet book! I cried several times! There needs to be a sequel. I'm not ready to leave these characters.
There are two curse words in this book (in context and makes sense. There is a convict and ex con in the story, it's not all roses) but besides that, exceptionally clean.
I love, love, love how the characters healed separately and then were friends and then dated. Sometimes in romances I want to scream when the author has two broken people start a relationship. This was done so ...more
Debbie Macomber’s books are a safe bet for me when I’m in the mood for feel-good, uplifting reads with a happy ending. Granted, her books sometimes seem like too all-rounded, too neat, too beautifully wrapped-up, and this book, Any Dream Will Do is no exception in that equation, yet it still hit me in the feels much stronger than I had anticipated and gave me a lot of emotions.
As usual, Debbie Macomber’s writing is clean, solid and emotionally evocative. In fact, well, I might be a bit partial t ...more
I am beginning to really, really like Debbie Macomber's books. They're not my usual type of romances -- historical or suspense driven, with big, rich alpha males. No, all the people in Macomber's books are people that you'd recognize from your own life.
Her themes of second chances and redemption really do your heart good and this novel is no different. At first, I was worried that since one of her characters was a Pastor that I would have to put up with a lot of preaching, but that wasn't the c ...more
This was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the story and did not mind the religious tones at all. I normally shy away from any book that contains too much religion. It can get in the way of the story, in my opinion.
But, this book was a beautifully written story about starting over and forgiveness and it really struck a chord in my heart and my thinking. The characters were well developed from Shay to the most minor character. I felt a part of the story which is rare.
Thank you to NetGalley and Rand ...more
From the first to the last page this story became a compelling page-turner, and I could just see it unfold like a TV movie, and it sure would make a great one.
Shay Benson has not had an easy life, and early on took responsibility for her brother, and in the end it costs her dearly to the point she ends up in jail.
Fate or not, I believe God had a hand in bringing her just where she needed to be on that December day, and just where Pastor Drew needed her to be. Yes, he needed her as much as she ne ...more
This is a great little read. Not the kind I usually gravitate to. But very enjoyable. I felt really connected to the characters, Drew and Shay. It has some great themes that I think are important. It's a romance, sure, but so much more.
Shay commits a crime to save her brother and gets caught. She goes to prison. When she is released, she has no money and nowhere to go. She finds herself getting out of the weather in a church. That is where she meets the pastor, Drew. They form a friendship that ...more
This book was amazing from start to end and deserved far more than five stars I couldn't put it down as had me hooked from the first page and I just wanted to keep reading to find out what would happen next. So many twists and turned you really don't no what will happen next. It's a story of romance and starting a new life and proving dreams can come true. The book is based round two main characters shay and Drew and how they need to find themselves in different ways and how they save each other ...more
Picking up a book by Ms. Macomber is like a balm for the soul. While this starts out a little differently from her others, the wonderful storytelling we've come to expect is still there. She has a gift for creating magic on the pages. I love Shay immediately. Getting out of prison after three years, she feels all is lost. Until a kind stranger helps guide her where a future may be possible after all. This spans over a year so friendship and romance slowly develop. Pastor Drew is a rare breed of ...more
