Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/29/2014

    " Another good read from Lisa Wingate. Not quite as awesome as her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wing | 1/19/2014

    " Very similar to the first book about people come to the town of Daily, Texas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cesily | 1/18/2014

    " I liked this book. Definitely had some funny moments. The start I thought was a little too long and went a little too in depth with a few of the characters shady pasts. I did enjoy the comparisons of a good horseman to the way God deals with each of us. Enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laurie | 1/16/2014

    " I didn't think much about this book at all because it was so boring! It had a good story line but it was all shot to pieces because Wingate went into too much detail too the point of exhaustion! It was nice that she could be so descriptive, but it was to the point where it no longer held my interest and I was just skipping page after page of unnecessary information! I will not read this book again and was disappointed in it. Someone needs to write a book that is christian but not so boring! This is why I don't read christian books, but I thought I'd give this one a try anyway. Big mistake! "

    " My second trip to Daily was great fun. The author does a fantastic job of painting characters and mixing humor with romance. She makes me want to move there and visit with the folks down at the cafe. "
