A Book Review

A Billion Reasons Why by Kristin Billerbeck.
This is a Christian fiction book.  It is about a quirky character named Katie McCenna.  She has two men in her life.  One whom she is engaged to and the other broke her heart years ago.  Now Katie is reunited with the one who broke her heart and she has to decide what God wants for her.
I did like this book! Sometimes Christian fiction can be a little, too perfect.  In A Billion Reasons Why all the characters are likeable, but have very believable faults and are most definitely not perfect.  Once I started the book, I had trouble putting it down.  It was an easy and enjoyable read.  One of those books where the characters really come to life for you.  The characters are easy to connect with.  The book also has a strong 40’s theme.  If anyone is a lover of the old movies and songs from that era then you will really enjoy all the references in the book.  Even though this book was clean and there was no direct biblical message in it.  However, fiction is supposed to be an escape.  This book was just that and more!  I love good, clean fiction.  I saw that the author has other books out and I will be putting them on my “must read” list.
