Amazing Gracie Book Review

I was still out of library books to read and I finally resorted to reading the books on my shelf.  I have been trying hard to do that for at least the past three years but I always end up back at the library reading their books.  I grabbed Amazing Gracie by Sherryl Woods which I am not sure even how I got it but it was there waiting for another lighthearted and lightweight paperback read so that I could carry it around in my bag.  Well, it didn't last long enough for me to carry it much of anywhere because I read it in less than 24 hours!

Gracie MacDougal quits her job in France running a high end hotel and realizes that she has no where to go.  She returns to Seagull Point, Virginia, where her family had their only vacation as a child.  The picturesque town calls to her, as does the waterfront Victorian house she envisions as the perfect bed-and-breakfast.  Kevin Daniels, the person managing the Victorian, isn't interested in selling Gracie's dream house. The two become friends because Kevin decides that it is his job to entice the uptight businesswoman into learning to relax.  He already has way too many people depending on him, and has no intention of adding one more.  In order to find out if their friendship lasts, you have to read the book and find out.

I really like the way that Sherryl Woods writes because you are in the middle of the books feeling like all of these characters are family or friends.  The other great part is that it keeps you so involved that you can't put the book down!!  The great writing keeps the book moving so there is never a slow part to put the book down.  There are multiple relationships going on even though most of the book is about Gracie or Kevin, there are cousins, aunts, and neighbors that you enjoy meeting.  I hope to meet these characters in another one of her books soon and can't wait to pick up another one of her series soon.  I hope that you check it out at your local library or bookstore and enjoy it as much as I did.


  1. Sounds like a good book! :) I need to get up ap book review this weekend as well and hopefully get another book read & reviewed this week! Just need time.... lol!

    1. I have three books sitting next to the computer that I have moved tons because I still haven't written the reviews. I am so far behind but we are busy with the new house remodel and I am exhausted. We usually fall asleep on the couch every night with a million more things that we have to do the next day. I just took a load of laundry out of the dryer that has been there for no less than three days because my son was out of PJs. Life is crazy when you are moving!!
