I have to say, I really, really enjoyed these two books. I was grateful to receive both books which are books 1 and 2 in this new series, written by a few authors under one pen name. I read the first book in one day, and the second one in less than two days. These books are fun, interesting, and will keep your attention. You will love the characters and get wrapped up in their lives right away!
The series begins when a grandmother and grandfather have to take in their three grandchildren when their mother suddenly passes away. The first book is entirely the beginning of their new lives together, as a new family - strangers, really - in a new place. The kids are all in those pre-teen and teenager years which makes it even more difficult. The grandmother struggles with the regrets she has from raising her own children and finds she has to rely more and more on other people to help raise these children.
The second book is still focused a lot on the adjustment of all of them to family life. There are totally new adventures, though, in this book. The kids seem to be really struggling, and Charlotte, the grandmother, is really second-guessing her parenting skills.
The family has to rely on friends and God, or else they are going to break under the pressure of trying to rebuild their lives.
I loved the conversations in this book and loved the writing styles of both books. I highly, highly recommend these series. I really want to read the next one when it comes out!
Thank you to Guideposts and Litfuse Publicity Group for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
