    Hi I m twenty five years old and movie star gorgeous The camera added thirty plus years and a few wrinkles Can t trust those cameras or mirrors either Along with bathroom scales they are notorious liars Honestly, I am the mother of three fantastic grown children who ve made me laugh and given me story ideas than I could ever write My husband, Charles, is my strongest supporter and my best friend He s even willing to eat fast food and help with the laundry while I finish one chapter Life is good and I am blessed Reading has been a passion since I was five years old and figured out those were words on book pages As soon as my chubby little fingers found they could put words on a Big Chief tablet with a fat pencil, I was on my way Writing joined reading in my list of passions I will read anything from the back of the Cheerio s box to Faulkner and love every bit of it In addition to reading I enjoy cooking, my family and the ocean I love the Florida beaches Listening to the ocean waves puts my writing brain into high gear.I love writing romance because it s about emotions and relationships Human nature hasn t changed a bit since Eve coveted the fruit in the Garden of Eden Settings change Plots change Names change Times change But love is love and men and women have been falling in and out of it forever Romance is about emotions love, hate, anger, laughter all of it If I can make you laugh until your sides ache or grab a tissue then I ve touched your emotions and accomplished what every writer sets out to do.I got serious about writing when my third child was born and had her days and nights mixed up I had to stay up all night anyway and it was very quiet so I invested in a spiral back notebook and sharpened a few pencils The story that emerged has never sold but it s brought in enough rejection slips to put the Redwood Forest on the endangered list In 1997 Kensington bought two books for their Precious Gems line Two years and six books later the line died with only four of those books seeing publication But by then Avalon had bought a book and another, and another Ten years later the list has grown to thirty nine Last year Sourcebooks bought the Lucky Series which is in the bookstores now They ve also bought The Honky Tonk Series which will debut with I LOVE THIS BAR in June and will be followed by HELL, YEAH, MY GIVE A DAMN S BUSTED, and HONKY TONK CHRISTMAS.Folks ask me where I get my ideas Three kids, fifteen grandchildren, two great grandchildren Note I was a very young grandmother Life is a zoo around here when they all come home In one Sunday afternoon there s enough ideas to keep me writing for years and years Seriously, ideas pop up at the craziest times When one sinks its roots into my mind, I have no choice but to write the story And while I m writing the characters peek over my shoulder and make sure I m telling it right and not exaggerating too much Pesky little devils, they are I have a wonderful agent, Erin Niumata, who continues to work magic and sell my work I m very lucky to have her and my editors who continue to believe in me.Happy reading

    Hannah O’Malley is thrilled to finally be free of her abusive husband, but it will take a bit of healing and the help of friends and family to get past the emotional damage he caused. Lucky for her she has an amazing support group and her lovely little six year old daughter, Sophie to ease her back into normal. I just loved the close knit group of friends and the two old ladies, basically the group’s matriarchs, Aunt Birdie and Aunt Rosie! These old ladies were not above stepping in to solve [...]

    Not sure I get all the great reviews. I wonder if I read the same book?The premise was good and it started out strong, but the execution was weak with one dimensional characters, an unrealistic portrayal of survival and recovery, and absolutely no tension to entice the reader to keep turning the page. I also didn't feel the author handled the topic with care. The tone and execution were too casual and cavalier for such an important topic for womenI'd recommend a pass on this one.

    The general synopsis is as follows: the book follows a woman named Hannah O’Malley who divorces her abusive husband and sets up her home as a shelter for abused women. The book is all about abusive relationships and finding love again. Hannah has a daughter named Sophie and many friends, including a man named Travis who is her old secondary school crush. I think that Hannah’s development was really good. I can understand her character: I saw Hannah as a woman who has been abused and is there [...]

    I hated this book. It's about a woman getting divorced from an abusive husband. I was expecting and hoping for some sort of dark and twisted novel, but instead it was happy like a Hallmark movie. Everything worked out perfect. There was not an ounce of darkness involved, nor did it seem real. People aren't this happy when getting out of an abusive relationship. People leave with ptsd and psychological trauma. The conversations in this book were so surface-level it was annoying. And they were eat [...]

    DNF'd when I read this: "What the " Travis picked up the shotgun and ejected both shells. "Aunt Birdie, you brought a loaded gun over here with that baby?""She'll be six years old in a few weeks. And there ain't a way in hell I can kill a man with an unloaded gun. I don't have the strength to beat him to death with the butt," Aunt Birdie fussed!!!!!! A LOADED GUN WITH A SIX YEAR OLD?? Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez. Sometimes I despair of the world.One star for the utter utter stupidity.

    This book was a torture. It's literally about nothing A woman gets her freedom from an abusive husband and runs straight into a knight in shining armor? Wtf? Where is all psychological trauma stuff? And the conversations between her and a new man Twilight dialogs seemed more realistic. I just did not like this book very much.

    This was a fun book tackling a very serious subject: domestic abuse. I enjoyed the audiobook although the accents were sometimes overdone. Also, I loved the fact that my favorite bourbon, Pappy Van Winkle, was included!!! I'm a Kentucky-born girl and I love my bourbon!!!Go Cards! L1C4!!

    What an absolutely awesome book. The characters were rich and full body with life and seasoned with spunk. They had a good sense of family and friends yet a healthy dose of we can’t help you until you ask for it. It was amazingly well balanced in how it was done especially when dealing with an abusive situation a lot is at stake. Not only for the one being beaten but for those around them and those they may be trying to protect. Carolyn showed that Hannah O’Malley’s abuser used high tech s [...]

    Absolutely terrible.The storyline is actually ok, I would give that 3 stars.But the fact that owning guns, keeping them loaded and unsecured in homes with children, and using them to kill people, runs repeatedly throughout the story completely ruins it for me.Carolyn Brown often sets her stories in Texas, but this one was much more gun-loving and white-trash than they usually are.Hated it to the point that I will never again read another Carolyn Brown book.

    CheesyThis book was not particularly interesting, beyond the premise. Ten years after high school, all the women friends are in abusive relationships. Conveniently, the guy friends have been in love with the victims since high school. They never acted on their love because they were embarrassed to be a romance writer and a fashion designer. But they all lived happily ever after.

    Ruth Anderson
    This book has nothing to move the story forward. The only conflict is resolved in the first chapter. The sayings in this book are supposed to sound "country". Instead they sound like someone who's never been to a rural community's idea of "country".Overall, I couldn't wait to for this book to be finished.

    Alexa
    I hate having to give a book one star. But I had to make myself finish. The dialogue was the worst. The chapter divisions were completely random. The story was flat. The idea was insulting. And it bordered way too closely to Christian fiction for me.

    RomanceI'm not a romance novel fan. But the stories of women healing from bad relationships made reading a romance novel worthwhile

    Sweet. Sappy but sweet.

    DNF. I don’t usually leave a book incomplete, but I am finding myself agreeing with the negative reviews that I’m reading here. It’s incredibly boring and unrealistic. Tired of the shining 5 year old that NEVER gets tired or upset, the constant “she must have something new everything time someone leaves the house”, and complete lack of conflict to drive the story forward. I’m usually happy with a fluffy read, but this one was flat.

    When this author was new and fresh to me, I found that I loved her work. I was thrilled to read her newest work. However it might have been that it was what I was *what* I was choosing that kept me so happy. But the last few books I have read are so similar in theme that wonder why I am even bothering with reading them. I can tell exactly how it is going to proceed and end.The Lullaby Sky is the traditional 'Southern small town abused by rotten husband woman becomes strong but has a poop load of [...]

    Ignorantly written story for people who haven't anything between their ears. The subject of wife abuse is very serious and not to be made light of. This book treats it so stupidly and thinks it is cute for the main character's grandma to carry around a gun while she babysits the main character's daughter and then talks about killing the father? Sick.

    BzBooks
    This is a biased review because I could never finish the book. It was started out with court drama and getting one's life back post-divorce, but the romance of a best-friend crush just seemed implausible. The plot was also too slow for my taste, the main character development was flimsy. I just couldn't get past about 100 pages. Send me a message if you think I am wrong, and I will take another look.

    Jane Brewer
    Too predictable for me. I mean seriously, EVERYBODY is abused? They're all friends? They ALL find love? I don't knowwhere's the tension? The climax? Cute idea but lacks the originality and plot twists that I love. Thank you to for this giveaway!

    Eileen
    I won this book in a giveaway from . I love the power of women The women in this book were amazing. They were there for each other as several healed from abusive relationship. This is a great read and really shows the beauty of friendship and love.

    Made my teeth hurt this was so sweet. It was alright. Got it mainly because I enjoy this audiobook narrator. And she made the story work for me in a way it would not have it I had just read it on my own.

    This unimaginative story is about a young mother who picks herself up after a divorce from an abusive wealthy man. The main character is surrounded by a bunch of unrealistic yet supportive friends. Including a man from her youth who secretly loves her and is willing to be her "on call" bodyguard. He is a rich author of romance novels but he's too embarrassed to tell the love of his life that he writes books because she might think he's a "sissy". One friend is also being abused by her husband, b [...]

    This is a book I would have no problem reading again. The idea of recovery through acts of service was a great concept. Creating a safe house for other battered women after leaving a batterednlife proved to be something that spoke to me. Throughout the whole book the sweet child's point of view from Sophie a six year old girl was very interesting and rang true for a mother whose had kids just like her. Seeing that not only your friends but also strangers can be in the same place you are helps yo [...]

    Tedious and strangely sexistThe story revolves around a woman who divorces her abusive husband and her interactions with her friends, family, and other abused women who come and go from the shelter she turns her home into. Luckily, she has a perfect, handsome, strong lifelong friend who has always been in love with her to protect her and all of the abused women who come stay with her. Because of course women need men to protect them from abusive men. The story was tedious. It was obvious who the [...]

The book shows her transition from being divorce and dealing with the trauma. At the same time she's coping with raising her five year old daughter Sophie who is a pleasure to see through [...]

    Good writing overall, slightly bland sometimesIt was a very descriptive book (often overly so, for my taste - for instance in one scene it went into great detail about who's sitting next to whom, but it wouldn't end up being important to the plot). The plot never built up to a huge climax because it never built up a problem beyond "young woman needs to rebuild her psyche and life after escaping abusive marriage". And I appreciate the slow pace of the sort of Bildungsroman. I just didn't see such [...]
