Thursday's Talk About the Book

From "A Peek at My Bookshelf" by Deena Peterson 

Chasing Sunsets by Eva Marie Everson



Fair warning! Eva Marie Everson is back with a new fiction series, so don't pick this one up thinking all things will be nice and tidy at the end. While I've enjoyed all of her stand-alone novels, it's nice to have a series to look forward to!


"Chasing Sunsets" is about life not turning out like we've planned...can I get a witness! Kimberly Tucker is making her way through the valley of the divorced. Problem is, she hasn't a clue as to what went wrong. And her two sons are caught in the middle of the animosity between the two former spouses.


Maybe a vacation back in time will help her clear her head? Not literally...but back in Cedar Key, where life felt less complicated and the air was fresher. While the boys are with their dad, Kimberly returns back to happier memories and to hopefully make some new ones.


Unfortunately, she didn't know her first love had returned as well. Seeing Steven Granger puts a crimp in Kimberly's sense of peace. But maybe it's time to talk about the past and heal and move on...


...and see what the future holds.


I enjoyed my time in Cedar Key, and look forward to more stories from this lovely locale. No word on how many novels, but I'm hoping for at least four or five...or six or seven...


My thanks to Donna Hausler at Revell for my copy, and I'm giving "Chasing Sunsets" four out of five bookmarks, with a key to the future as a charm. Take my advice...give that key to God and let HIM plan your future...and then FOLLOW HIM!!


Happy Reading!
