Book Review – Leaving by Karen Kingsbury

The much anticipated Bailey Flanigan series starts off with the novel called “Leaving,” which begins where “Take Four” left off. Bailey still hasn’t had any contact with Cody Coleman, which is tearing her up. But she also has a friend in her former co-star Brandon. And when she is still a little down in the dumps she receives some amazing news: she’s getting an audition for a Broadway show! She is beyond excited and nervous because she had been working hard since the last audition she had.
And then what happened to Cody? He left his hometown on a whim to be closer to his mom who is behind bars. And then he took a assistant coaching job in a small town outside of Indianapolis. There are feelings left ignored though. Will he ever call Bailey to explain? Will Bailey move? Will she see Cody? And what about the rest of the Flanigan family? The transitions these characters go through are pretty earth-shattering.
These books are so exciting. The worst part is waiting for the next one to come out. This was an extremely emotionally packed book. It was seriously the only one in any of the Baxter or Flanigan series’ that has ever made this examiner cry. Bailey’s character is so real that she almost feels like a good friend. Karen has such a way with words that it makes you feel like you are right there in the middle of the story. All of her books could totally film-worthy. It’s hard to know what else to say without giving away all the great stuff in this book. It’s just an amazing story. They get better each novel. Please check out all of Karen’s books, especially this newest novel.
