    Uplifting, Powerful, and Full of Love!Any Dream Will Do by Debbie Macomber is a beautiful story about second chances, love, trust, faith, and redemption! Debbie Macomber has a wonderful way of bringing all her characters to life - simply an incredible story from beginning to end. Shay Benson loved her brother Caden, and all she wanted to do was help him stay out of trouble. Unfortunately, that act of kindness cost her three years of her life behi...

    I really enjoyed this book! A different change of paceDebbie Macomber is known for her stories of overcoming mistakes and regrets. Of people changing and finding new paths. And, also, connecting with those that are seemingly opposite’s in every way. But this story seems to take that theme to a different level.I’m not sure what it is that made this book different for me. Two completely opposite people that are struggling to find an answer to w...

    Such a good and sweet book! I cried several times! There needs to be a sequel. I'm not ready to leave these characters. There are two curse words in this book (in context and makes sense. There is a convict and ex con in the story, it's not all roses) but besides that, exceptionally clean. I love, love, love how the characters healed separately and then were friends and then dated. Sometimes in romances I want to scream when the author has two br...

    This is a great little read. Not the kind I usually gravitate to. But very enjoyable. I felt really connected to the characters, Drew and Shay. It has some great themes that I think are important. It's a romance, sure, but so much more. Shay commits a crime to save her brother and gets caught. She goes to prison. When she is released, she has no money and nowhere to go. She finds herself getting out of the weather in a church. That is where she m...

    Confession--Apparently I thought this author was someone else when I entered to win this from Goodreads. I was not expecting Christian lit. That said, this is very easy reading. Macomber is definitely a pro and tugs away at those heartstrings in an unlikely romance full of near misses and outside pressures. What makes the book really excellent in my opinion is the deft handling of "church people" and showing their, well hypocrisy may be too stron...

    A few months ago I was talking to an acquaintance about books and she mentioned how much she likes Debbie Macomber because the books make her happy and she feels "safe" reading them. I'll definitely need to point her towards this book because I know she'd love it.I too enjoy this author, and I liked this one and its focus on basically just the main characters and two points of view (although the side characters were lovely). Shay was a great prot...

    Picking up a book by Ms. Macomber is like a balm for the soul. While this starts out a little differently from her others, the wonderful storytelling we've come to expect is still there. She has a gift for creating magic on the pages. I love Shay immediately. Getting out of prison after three years, she feels all is lost. Until a kind stranger helps guide her where a future may be possible after all. This spans over a year so friendship and roman...

    I love Debbie Macomber's Christmas stories. I haven't read too many of her books that aren't set during Christmas time so this was a fun change of pace for me and her books. I really enjoyed it! I enjoyed the different characters, the pacing, the lapse of time, the theme, the plot. Definitely an all around good read.Shay is one of those characters that you feel torn about. Not torn in a bad way but torn because you see the struggle and dilemma th...
