Longing, book three in the Bailey Flanigan Series, picks up where Learning ended. After a long and lonely silence from Cody Coleman, Bailey Flanigan becomes closer to her one-time Hollywood co-star, Brandon Paul. Nights on the town in New York City and long talks on the balcony of Brandon's Malibu Beach home make Bailey dizzy with new feelings and cause her to wonder if her days with Cody are over forever.

Meanwhile, Cody's work coaching a small-town football team has brought him and his players national attention. In the midst of the celebration and success, Cody finds himself much closer to a woman who seems to better understand him and his new life.

Even so, never does much time go by without Bailey and Cody experiencing deep feelings of longing for each other, longing both for the past and for answers before they can move forward. Will an unexpected loss be the turning point for Cody? Will Cody and Bailey find a way back together again for the first time in more than a year? And if they do, will their brief time together be enough to help them remember all they've been longing for?

    " This was a book about Bailey, Cody and Brandon. Bailey took a job in New York and lived with a nice older couple. She went to bible study and was working on Broadway her dream come true. Cody had walked away and had not been heard from in months. Bailey went to see him the night before she left and told him about New York they said goodbye. Brandon courted Bailey seriously in New York and would come for just one night to watch her perform. Brandon was learning to be a better man for Bailey and growing in his faith daily. Cody had a amazing season with football and was getting serious with Cheyenne. Cheyenne saw the way that Cody looked at Bailey. Cheyenne had terrible a horrible car accident and Cody was there to help her. The book was sad at the end and things Cheyenne said made me wonder if that is the way things will end up or not. Bailey and Cody had another day together and Brandon postponed his engagement to Bailey. "

    " I am a big fan of any Karen Kingsbury book. I am a bit biased I am afraid as I love to read something I am not at all nervous about reading in front of my kids. I love the way her books can intertwine without them seeming cheesy or redundant. And this series has quickly become a fave. "

    " This was one of the better books in the series and even had me a little teary eyed. Still waiting to see how the main characters play out in the end. You know you have to wait for the final installment to find out their fate. "
