Don't watch that one!!! Watch this One!!!!!Gavin Watson is true. The cover of Watson's Skins shows the sadly ignored by Dr. Martin anniversary add. But as Dr. Martin lostthe opportunity to present the real nature of their years of success we are graced with with Watson's one man conviction to showthe passion of a youth movement which stepped massive like Rudebwoys in it's rebellion. Watson shows and proves the Skinmovement and it's original multi-cultural appeal to young working-class males of all , Hip hop and rap has the same appeal for youth who want to break cultural barriers and run with the rebels. But this rabbleof rudeness came first. One can only hope that for this generation that they will have a dedicated chronicler with a swift righteouseye like Watson to tell their real tale. Watson rides again!!!!!!!
This is a unbelievable book in the Sunrise Series. All the books about the Baxters is wonderful. I love the method Karen keeps it so real. Everyone and everything isn't "happy everafter" which is true life but God is so much a part of the plans for their lives. The books present how even when we walk away from God, He never leaves us. That is so comforting. Thank you Karen for a unbelievable series and a unbelievable family like the Baxters. I truly feel like I'm a part of their family when I am reading these books. I laugh and cry with them.
This was the hardest but the most stirring of any I have read. It was so much like true life in that we sometimes struggle with the things that God allows in our lives but later see His mighty hand working all the while when we thought He had left us. Thanks for the reminder that 'all things work together for good' even when we don't understand.
From Karen's series The Baxter, First Born, and Baxter 3, are stories so captivating that I couldn't hardly place the books down. Through all the series, the stories are based on lives of people that I can relate to. People that are at most times, powerful in their faith with God, and also are struggling to understand why things are not working out in their lives as they believe they should. Ashleigh and Landon struggle with such a heartbreak that makes them question God as to why their daughter that is being formed in Ashleigh's womb is not developing as a healthy baby. The diagnosis is heart wrenching, and not only makes Ashleigh and Landon's faith question God, but the whole Baxter family. Through Summer, Karen brings forth a attractive story that portrays the unfailing love of God and His faithfulness to His kids through the most difficult times and struggles. God is the giver of life, and through the Baxter family crisis, we are reminded that "All things work out for amazing for those who love God." The bonus of life is precious in the sight of God even if the life on this earth is for a few hours, it's still a precious bonus and a bonus that can change your life and the lives of those close to You. Thank You Karen! Through your books and inspirational stories, with Gods Word as your foundation, my faith in God and His faithfulness is building my faith.
I admit it, I'm hooked on the Baxter family, and this book was one of the best installments of the three series. Without giving too much away, it includes a very sensitive portrayal of a tragic situation. The ending was very touching and very honest. The subplots were handled well; I especially appreciated the Katy/Dayne subplot. Among other things,it revisited Katy's tendency to believe the tabloids before Dayne, something that was established in the Firstborn series and never really resolved. All in all, a amazing read. My husband half jokingly asked if there was gold in the book, I was so absorbed in it. I told him there sure was! However, I wouldn't recommend this to someone who hasn't at least read the first book in the series, if not the two earlier Baxter family series. I think it would be method too confusing.
Being that I have read all the previous books on the Baxter series I just couldn't wait until I was able to read Summer. I really enjoyed it I felt that the characters were part of my own family and couldn't wait to search out how they are doing. I just love the author Karen Kingsbury and would read any book that she comes out with. I always laugh and cry with each of her books and definatly like the Christian Fiction books. I have read most of Karen Kingsbury's books and if I haven't read some of her books they are sitting waiting for me to obtain to ce Flohr
"Summer" continues the story of the Baxter family, of course. It really opened my eyes to the of fame. A amazing Hollywood marriage is rare as this story proves. Mrs. Kingsbury doesn't always deliver "happiy ever after" in all aspects of the Baxter's lives. But, she tells a story that teaches that "All things work together for good..." according to Rom 8:28. As we lead lives fit for the Master's service, even difficult things can be endured. I love the fact that when I am reading one of Mrs. Kingsbury's novels, I know there won't be anything that will tempt my thoughts to wander in a worldly r those who have followed the Baxter's w/Karen, you will not be disappointed. All three generations of these characters are fleshed out in a very believable manner.
Book Two of an Awesome series on the Baxter family by Karen Kingsbury. I totally enjoyed this series, and so did everyone else! This is the third book of the third series on the Baxter family. I suggest them ALL! However, starting on this third series will not leave you lost. Everything from the past is well explained. You will enjoy!
Seabreeze Summer: A Summer Beach Novel Book Two is by Jan Moran. This sequel takes put in Summer Beach, California where Ivy and Shelly are trying to turn the house Ivy inherited from her husband, Jeremy, when he unexpectedly died. He had purchased this house with their retirement and the for his daughter’s education without Ivy’s knowledge. She had been forced to their home and everything to his debts and this was the only thing left and he owed back taxes on it too. In to hold the house, she had to those taxes within a year. To do this, she is trying to obtain zoning changed to let her to turn it into a hotel. She couldn’t tear it down or anything as it was declared a historical site.Ivy had decided to stay here and turn the house into a hotel to off the taxes and hold it. She talked her sister into staying here and not returning to her dead-in life in Fresh York. Their niece, Poppy, who was visiting decided to stay and place her marketing degree to work marketing the hotel. The house had belonged to an older couple and was left as is, including the stolen art secreted within the walls. Those had been turned over to the FBI for processing as they were stolen WWII art. What else might they search in the house?How can they convince the council to let a variance in zoning to let her to turn the home into a hotel, especially with the resistance of their neighbor, Darla? Having the mayor living here along with several other influential people in the community after their homes were destroyed by a forest fire could be either an advantage or e book is delightful and it keeps you on your toes wondering what they will search next in the house and if they will finally search a journal explaining how these stolen stuff got to the house. Coupled with romances popping out all over and Ivy’s daughters’ reactions to her decision to move here as well as a rotten chihuahua things hold hopping here at Seabreeze Inn.
I think the first book was called the Seabreeze Inn...it was so poor I don't remember the title...and sadly, this one is even worse! The writing and the dialog in both of these books seems so juvenile. The main characters are so one dimensional with no redeeming qualities that I couldn't muster an ounce of interest in them. I had already bought both books before reading the first one, I skimmed a lot of it. This one, I quit on page 81. When I was trying to read it the word that kept coming to mind was hokey...they are just so silly. I don't mind lighthearted, I actually like lighthearted at times but these were beyond extreme. Waste of and time.
After reading the previous book, I really didn't think this would come close to that kind of excitement but this book blew that one away! The mystery of the priceless artifacts is just the beginning of the excitement that continued in this book. The romance still moved slowly but that was ok, there was plenty of other things keeping this book exciting. I absolutely lived the relationships that came from disaster and how they pulled together. I am so anxious to obtain my hands on the next book, Febriary just seems too far away! I desperately need more of Ivy, Shelly, Bennett, Mitch, Poppy and other characters like Imani not to mention what happens with Darla. The story was unbelievable and unique, and beautifully written. I loved every page of this story.
