    Each one of the books in the Glenbrooke series is unique. This one is no exception. Meredith’s story is quite different from the previous ones, but it’s just as good. There are laugh-out-loud scenes as well as tear-worthy moments. I loved it.

    Okay, just when I thought I was going to have to power my way through the rest of this series by sheer force of will, I get blindsided with this wonderful book. I couldn't get enough of the characters. I've wanted to experience Jake's story ever since first meeting him a few books ago, and I absolutely want Meri to be my best friend and have decided that we are wacky, kindred spirits. This piece was well paced, had great dialogues, and the superf...

    I really enjoyed this sweet and amusing Christian romance. The characters were well drawn, and I liked the plot a lot. Also, I truly enjoyed seeing how the protagonist grew not only as a person but as a believer. This series is full of both great characters and great stories where character lessons and spiritual truths are interwoven with the fun plots.

    This was the first book I read in the Glenbrooke series (though it's the sixth), and it's my favorite! I absolutely adore it! A sweet, non-typical romance set in the present-time. Movie stars and young women searching for the perfect balance. Humorous and fun, Waterfalls made a perfect summer read for me.

    Shelly Graham's sister Meredith gets her own story in this book, also connecting us with a male character from a previous book in the series. Meri has a lot of good things in her life - a good job that she enjoys, a cute cabin to live in, family nearby - but is also longing for fulfillment of her teenage dreams to marry. She is gregarious and spunky, yet expects to settle down with a man like her pastor father. So when God rocks her world by brin...

    Well, this book was a lot more fast pasted then Clouds, for sure. Meri was a fun spunky character. Something I am not-spunky lol. There was never a dull moment with her, even though I feel like I would have been somewhat as goofy as her. I loved being back in glenbrooke with my gang. And I also loved that Meri was an editor. Being a reader and lover of books, that was cool to read about. Overall I give this book 4.5/5 ⭐ Well, this book was a...

    There were a couple of serious laugh out loud moments in this book. I read this whole series a long time ago. It's been fun revisiting it.

    The opening of a camp by Meredith's sister and brother-in-law brought her to Glenbrooke where she met the only man who made her heart leap, Jacob Wilde. He has other ideas about love, however. Strange ideas that work to break Meri's heart. She can't get him out of her mind and out of her life as his newest project brings them closer together.Meri is a children's book acquisitions editor and Jacob Wilde is an actor looking to turn into a producer ...

    Hands down my favorite in this already wonderful series. As a teen and even into my mid-20s I relate so much to Meredith and her struggles waiting for God's timing. Sure it's idealistic, but that's what makes it so fun. What if a quirky girl really could capture the attention of a handsome movie star? Considering how far-fetched that is, I think Robin did a great job making everything around it realistic.On a side note, as a teen I found this boo...

    It was my first Glenbrooke book and very easy to read even without knowing the earlier stories, perhaps because not much of the story actually does take place in Glenbrooke. The story was okay, nothing special. All the thoughts running around in the head of our heroine slowed the pace a bit too much and detracting from the overall enjoyment. But what really annoyed me was that the blurp on the back of the book told the whole story! It is supposed...

    I am truly enjoying this series of books. This one is about Meredith who works for a publishing company to determine if a manuscript is good enough to publish. She is also the sister of Shelly who the last book was about. Meredith also has some things to get straight and in the process she does some funny stunts.

    I tried to like this book I really did. I loved all of the Glenbrooke Series, except for this one. This one was the lone hold out that no library in my area had. I ordered it on ebay, and anxiously saved it for a cross country plane trip.I was so disappointed. In my opinion, it didn't "read" like she even wrote it, almost like she used a ghost writer.

    Another re-read, good book, a bit farfetched perhaps, but still very enjoyable. I love this author and every one of her books I will read again and again.May 2015 ... enjoyed this re-read ... love the waterfalls ... love the spiritual insight, and I love how all these books wind around familiar characters, but with entirely new and separate stories.

    I wanted to like this book because I'm a huge fan of Robin Jones Gunn; however, this particular book did not earn even a 2 star rating. Sorry Robin! P.S. Whispers (Glenbrooke #2) is sooo much better!

    4.5 starsThis was such a sweet and wonderfully romantic story ... one of my favorite in this series so far! Meri was a really fun character to get to know. I enjoyed the tension between she and Jake and how she is learning to lean solely on the Lord for her future. Great story!

    A delightful, Christian, romance story with humor and wit. Takes place in Oregon which gives it an extra plus!

    That love is a choice and its more about commitment than feelings. Praying with someone from the opposite sex one on one is very intimate and should not be taken lightly.

    This is a good romance novel where both Merideth and Jake need to discover their love for each other. This is a sweet story with a strong Christian theme in it.

    Very sweet and loving. Allows for someone to seek help through Christ about similar issues within. I only wish that the author would have continued on a bit with the story.

    It's been years since I last read this book. I can't promise great writing but it was a nice story and made me want to be an acquisitions editor. I'd like to re-read this book as an adult.
