Loved this novel! Jan 4, 2007
I had a nice review written just a couple minutes ago and it seems to have not posted. I cannot retype it all, but I will say that I highly recommend this story! This was one of my first Christian fiction reads and this book prompted me to read more! I am a Christian, but I have been skeptical about the genre. I was not disappointed by Aisha Ford's novel. Great storyline, great character development...it was all here. It's levels above some books I have read.
Good Story, but was the script flipped?...hmmm May 15, 2006
Ford offers a good read. The setting and plot appear predictable but offer some juicy turns and twists. The characters are not super original but do bring something to the plate that makes them interesting enough to follow. The storyline is well written and delivers a good read go to the library and check this one out you'll have a relaxing time which is why it was given a Bronze rating..
WOW....Gotta Read It! Sep 7, 2005
This was my first time reading anything from the author but best believe it won't be the last. The author hit some very important facts about God, work-place, employement, relationships, etc. The two most important ones to me: be careful who you talk to in your work-place b/c they might not be who they say they are, they might end up being the one to save your job and always put God first when making a decision and you can't go wrong. Please pick this book up and enjoy every page from beginning to end.
Unresolved resolutions Jul 14, 2005
Life for Sabrina Bradley is not going well. Still reeling from a recent broken engagement, Sabrina makes her way through the pain by working tirelessly at her job. She work as the assistant to Darci Oliver, the host of the talk show Daily Dose. Darci seems oblivious to her demands on Sabrina and her quirks make Sabrina's life increasingly more difficult. Darci especially turns up the heat when she notices the producer (also her ex-boyfriend), Avery is obviously attracted to Sabrina and making efforts to pursue her.
In a fit of desperation, Sabrina fills out her resolution list with the last item being, "Do not fall in love." In search of content for the show, Darci unwittingly gets her hands on Sabrina's list. With the promise of a bonus and a promotion, Darci encourages Sabrina to place herself as one of the participants on the "resolution" show. Soon the attention and pressure to keep the resolutions start to take a tole on Sabrina. In the midst of the chaos, Avery continues to pursue her and that "Do not fall in love" resolution becomes the hardest one of them all to keep!
This was second novel I have read by Aisha Ford and I love how she develops her characters. There were so many times during the read I wanted to give her advice or just pray with her. Through the humourous and often dramatic storyline, readers get a chance to see how impulsive decisions made out of pain and frustration, can truly backfire. Through Sabrina readers will be reminded of a valuable lesson which involves us letting go and letting God heal us. We need stand through out trials and wait patiently for what He has for us on the other side. Not wanting to give the ending away, I love the way things worked out for Sabrina!
Aisha Ford is one of my new favorites! Apr 1, 2005
This was a fun romantic story with lots of interesting supporting characters. At the heart of the story is Sabrina. She is a sweet, single Christian who is looking for positive changes in her life and her walk with Christ for the fast approaching New Year. One of those things she hopes will change is her frustrating relationship with her boss, talk-show host and diva extraordinaire Darci. Sabrina's convinced that Darci is standing in the way of the promotion that she deserves. In addition to a few other changes like losing weight and staying far away from distracting romantic relationships, Sabrina is sure that making these changes will lead her to the more fulfilling life she wants
The interesting twist of this story enters when Darci mistakenly gets a hold of Sabrina's New Year's resolution list. Having become suspicious that her ex and the show's producer Avery has a burgeoning interest in Sabrina, Darci decides to make a deal with Sabrina that will hold her to her resolutions and keep Sabrina away from Avery in the process. The promise of getting the promotion and financial gain that she desperately wants is just too much for Sabrina to turn away from. So she decides to participate in Darci's scheme - in front of television cameras no less as Darci decides to track the progression of Sabrina's New Year's resolution for a ratings boost on her talk show.
Sabrina's journey is fascinating - even as she starts to kick herself for swearing off romance - especially as Avery is looking better and better.
Ms. Ford's writing blends humor, drama and romance very well. The stories that develop about Darci and others only add to the interest in the main story line surrounding Sabrina, Avery and Darci.
