FORGIVENESS IS HARD

This book is definitely a stand alone from the rest of the series. The voice of Bev left a lot to be desired. She is in her 20's and sounds like someone cranky and whiny in their 60's. I always seem to have a hard time with the start of these books. It is always slow and lethargic. Once you get into it, it is good. Claire was really naive. She allowed what happened to her father dictate what she thought what real love was all about. Then she allowed her "beautiful" neighbor to come in her life and take over her and her husband's life. The first thing you need to realize is you never tell someone you just met (or long time not trusted friends) all of your business!! You also don't need to spread what goes on with you and your husband with other women (or men). That is called stupid in the first realm. I did not get it that Claire could not see what was going on with her husband when he started acting up and getting mad with her for anything she said or did. If he could not understand the hardship she was having with getting pregnant, then that should have been a clue that something else was going on with him. I wanted to jump in the book and shake her to wake up and smell the coffee, girl. When Wes comes back and begs for forgiveness it is a little trite. Those kind of people never last. At least Claire finally takes time to really evaluate the situation and not immediately jump back in and get hurt further. To me Scott was the saving grace of this whole situation. He understood his wife for what she really was. Someone not to be trusted. I don't know what the laws are in Canada but in America, Claire was entitled to get all of Wes' things since she was still his wife at his death. But more importantly she was his beneficiary. No legal entity or insurance company would mess with that. Claire was more giving than I could ever be in this situation. I even had to sleep on this and try to look at it from all sides. Nope. I would not have given the funds up. Especially after all they had put her and Scott through. Forgiveness is really for the person giving it. It helps to relieve you and help you to move pass the situation. Did it help the other woman?? Eventually. However, that should not effect the persons giving the forgiveness. Whether the person getting the forgiveness gets it or not, at least the person forgiving is done. I will say, this book really made me stop and think about the forgiving issue and how God forgives us. All we do and say and He still forgives. Now that is the miracle and His Love. P.S. I am a little mystified that a lot of the people in the series are having a hard time getting pregnant or losing their kids. What is up with that?? Having lost an adult child I know the heartache this brings. But faith and hope makes a difference.

A promise should not be broken

This book seemed more like a stand alone, instead of a part of the “Color of Heaven” series. This book deals with cheating spouses. I was shocked the husband went from loving to a cheating jerk. The cheating woman was very manipulating and not someone I’d like to know. I have a hard time seeing a good man become a cheater and a manipulative woman have a 180 degree turn. I liked Clare, her sister, and the neighbor friend, Scot. I also liked how good prevailed. Over all I’m glad I listened to this 12th book in the series (although I don’t know how it fits into the series)

Voice of Bev

Voice of Bev is awful! It’s like nails on a blackboard. Rest is just okay.

Sweet story

Loved the story but the narrator drives me crazy with her voices. The character’s voice is great, but her sister Bev is one such voice that makes me want to cringe. I had to make fun of it while listening just to avoid giving up on the book. I enjoy the author so I’ll move on to the next book in hopes the little old witch voice isn’t there.

Typical premise. Unimpressed

Don't be blinded by the title, this is hardly a book about Christmas, but rather a book about a woman who falls in love, gets her heart broken by her cheating, no good husband who runs off with the neighbors wife, he ends up getting the wife pregnant and then he is killed on an accident and leaves a pregnant adulteress behind.

I thought I would love this one, but the main character comes off as extremely Whiney, needy, obsessed with having a baby and very difficult to relate to.

The ending is as you would expect. She falls in love and has her happily ever after with the neighbors husband.

Usually I like this series, but not this time.

The narrator did a great job at the main character but for all other characters even the sister, Bev, she sounded awful. Maybe like a 100 year old smoker.
