Any Dream Will Do (New Beginnings #4) Reviews
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
A few months ago I was talking to an acquaintance about books and she mentioned how much she likes Debbie Macomber because the books make her happy and she feels "safe" reading them. I'll definitely need to point her towards this book because I know she'd love it.
I too enjoy this author, and I liked this one and its focus on basically just the main characters and two points of view (although the side characters were lovely). Shay was a great protagonist - she had been through a lot and felt wort ...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
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
It's been years since I've read a Debbie Macomber book. Despite the religious undertones i enjoyed this low-keyed romantic book. Stories about redemption and finding oneself always intrigue me. If you are a Macomber fan this book is a must read.
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
I listened to the first two books in this series and I really enjoyed them. the third book not so much. this book not at all. the only reason I gave it two stars was because I just could not bring myself to give one star to Debbie Macomber. I am really shocked at the rave reviews that this book has gotten. you all must be hard core Debbie Macomber fans because I cannot think of anything that I liked about this book. it was extremely predictable and so corny. I'm sorry I can't say an ...more
