Synopsis

Elementary school music teacher Callie Stevens thinks she’s finally figured out God’s plan for her life—she even made a list to keep her on track.

Moving in with her brother and reconnecting with her ex-boyfriend are at the top of the list. What’s not on the list is running into her childhood crush, Ryan. God wanted her to connect with Kyle, right?

Trying to figure out God’s plan is hard enough. But a dating-averse older brother, the young blonde who adores him, a pregnant best friend, and Callie’s continual mishaps make her wonder whether her best laid plans were truly God-inspired.

My Thoughts!

We all have at least one what if question and this whimsical story is all about that big what if. Callie looks back and realizes that she may have let “the one” get away because she was scared of commitment . As she looks back on it, she decides it’s time to make it right and heads home. .You’ll have to read the book to see what that story goes.

This book is well written, fun, emotional, and a true pleasure. It was my first read by Beery, but she quickly made my favorite authors list.  The characters are well developed, easy to relate to, and unique. I love how the characters all work together to build the story. There’s no extra fluff added in. It’s all good hearted, emotion pulling, have you on the edge of your seat reading! I highly recommend it!

Author Connection!

Karin wrote her first novel in 2007 to cope with her husband’s cancer diagnosis (no worries – he’s cancer free now!). With the support and encouragement of her family, she submitted that manuscript. That particular manuscript has not been published yet, but Summer Plans and Other Disasters, her first published book, releases in September 2018.

Karin writes contemporary and speculative fiction stories with a healthy dose of romance, but she’s also expanded her repertoire: she writes feature stories for the local paper, copy material for businesses, and blog posts for herself and others.

When Karin’s not reading, writing, or editing, she enjoys cooking and baking. She plays the piano and sings (the key of E, please). She kayaks with her husband in the summer, watches football in the fall (Go Blue!), and enjoys Christmas lights all winter long. Shy but extroverted, Karin adores her nieces and nephew and loves spending time with her family.
