Daniel Montgomery, the man behind the camera, is after more than just a story. Will he be satisfied with anything less than Allie's heart?



My Review ~ ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Okay this is not a new book at all! This book released in 2006 but it has been on my TBR pile for so long I finally decided to pick it up and read it in between the other books I've had to read for review and I am so glad I did!! This was my first time reading a book by Christine Lynxwiler and it definitely did not disappoint!! I am so glad I picked this book on a whim at the bookstore because I absolutely LOVED this book! It was such a fun read I couldn't put it down. I was hooked from the very first sentence:

"Today's my thirty-fifth birthday. And for the first time in my life I wish I were a man."

If that doesn't intrigue you I don't know what will! This book had me chuckling out loud and the relationships between Allie and her Pinky Promise Friends is of true friendship. She has knows these ladies since childhood and they do life together so its easy to relate to them. The relationship between her girls, mom and brother are relatable as well. And the relationship with hunky, blue eyed, Harley riding, bookstore/coffee owner, camera toting, former rebel,amazing guy Daniel is swoon worthy!!

I loved too how the author inter weaved God into the story without being too pushy. Allie had to learn a very important lesson to let go and let God. She is what you would consider a control freak and has these ideas in her mind on how her life should go. (Don't we all have those moments) Daniel tries to help her realize that sometimes you just need to let go of all these ideas and take the road that God has already mapped for you not the one you are trying to carve out for yourself!

I HIGHLY recommend this read if you enjoy Chick-Lit! Make yourself some popcorn, grab some chocolate and enjoy the book. You won't want to put it down!

I am saddened to find out that this author is no longer writing because I think her writing style is so much fun! I will definitely be finding her other books so I can read all that I can from her. In the meantime you should start out with this one if you can!
