WOW! Ok, I am going to say it. This was my favorite book in this series. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to throw my book against the wall, but I couldn't quit reading long enough to do that. *Smile* This book was wonderful, I think it is Kellie's best writing to date, and I loved the other books she has written. This book strikes a chord with me because we are seeing so many mass shootings in this crazy world we live in. This is a survivor book. And while it is fiction it is truly a wonderful book of surviving against all odds. I don't have enough words in my vocabulary to describe how much I enjoyed this book, so I will say it with stars. 5 stars from this reviewer.

A Reason To Stay
By Kellie Coates Gilbert
Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can't control
As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she's anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she'd like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary's life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man--and his overbearing relatives don't know the meaning of boundaries.
Faith and Geary haven't been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn't be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.
Kellie Coates Gilbert takes you on an emotional roller coaster as she weaves together unexpected trial, self-discovery, and forgiveness in this profoundly honest portrait of the tensions that can break a marriage--and the ultimate healing power of love.
