About the book: 

Keeper of the Stars (Thomas Nelson, January 2016)

Because it's not always love at first sight!

When her mother died from pneumonia, Penny Cartwright was heartbroken. But now, after burying her younger brother just 12 years later, she is devastated. Anger, guilt, and sorrow cloud Penny's mind, and the last thing she wants is to be reminded of her pain---but that's exactly what happens when a stranger comes to town.

Trevor Reynolds has been chasing fame for more than a dozen years, but his musical career can't get off the ground. While on the road, an accident kills his young drummer, Brad Cartwright. Trevor wasn't behind the wheel, but he still blames himself . . . and so does Brad's sister, Penny. Now Trevor finds himself in Kings Meadow, determined to follow through on his final promise to his friend.

Still feeling the pain of Brad's death, Penny and Trevor must learn that forgiveness is the only thing that can heal their hearts. And if they do forgive, something beautiful may rise from the ashes of heartbreak.

My Thoughts

I really wanted to love this book, and I do love the setting and the backdrop of the story, but the characters never really grabbed me. They didn't make me want to care. Maybe it is the seasonal blahs, but I just didn't get into the story at all. I struggled through the book, and while the setting is lovely, it is not a favorite from this author. But it is not a deal breaker either, I will read her next book, I am sure. I just wasn't over the moon on this one, which always makes me feel bad, because I want to love every book I choose to read. Overall I have to give the story 3.5 stars. This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
