Next up on the review train is Take Three by Karen Kingsbury!
She has to be my most favorite author ever. Especially since she was stumbled upon by picking up random books at the library. Seriously her books are so amazing. This is the 3rd in a series that had originally started as the Baxter series. If you haven’t read any of those. I would totally recommend starting from the beginning. They are seriously amazing. You won’t regret it at all. Karen has this way of making you feel like you are right there in the mix of it all. Its great.
So Take three continues the stories of Bailey Flannigan and Cody Coleman. But is also equally centered on Dayne Matthews who is the long lost brother of the Baxter kids. There is a lot of info when you don’t read from the beginning. But Karen writes in the details so you aren’t totally lost when you start reading a different series. Moving right long. This series is about movie making. Dayne was an actor. As are some of the other characters in the book.
This one mainly follows the end of a movie that had been made by Chase and Keith. They have a mission to see their films show Jesus to everyone. Now that’s finally panning out. But Chase is at a weird point in his life at that time. And then God sure had some different plans when it came to Chase. You’ll find out when you read the book though. I wont tell you exactly what plans they were. That’d ruin the book for you!
During that change. Dayne has joined Keith with the movie making. Being an actor that was something he felt called to help with since he knew the business. But during this time of transition, Keith and his wife Lisa were having a transition of their own. Things with their daughter Andi had gone downhill. Was she depressed? Or was something else super serious going on with her?
There is so much in this book you won’t ever get bored. And you may shed a tear. It is so awesome. Karen Kingsbury has such a great writing style. I just love it. Definitely pick this one up you won’t regret it. But read the ones before it too! Amazing novels for sure.
Thank you to Zondervan for providing me with this book. I received this in exchange for my review. I wasn’t compensated in any way.
