Item description for Sunrise (Sunrise V1) by Karen Kingsbury...

As their wedding day nears, Dayne Matthews and Katy Hart are determined to keep their ceremony a secret from the paparazzi, while a terrible tragedy strikes the Flanigan family as Cody fights for his life after an alcohol overdose.

Publishers Description
2008 Retailer's Choice Award winner In preparation for their long-awaited wedding day, Dayne and Katy are determined to keep the ceremony a secret from the paparazzi. Their relationship grows closer and stronger as they plan together, but in the end it takes the help of the Baxter family and many of the CKT kids so that they'll even have a chance at a private wedding. John Baxter is thrilled that his oldest son will be settling down a few miles away, but he isn't sure how any of his kids will handle a situation he can no longer run from--the feelings he is having for his friend Elaine. In the meantime, the Flanigan family is struggling with their young boarder, Cody Coleman, Jim Flanigan's star receiver. After an alcohol overdose, Cody fights for his life. Only God's grace and a miracle can bring him back from the brink of death--physically and spiritually.

From Publishers Weekly
Welcome back to Bloomington, Ind., where some of Kingsbury's most popular Christian novels are set. Kingsbury's latest feel-good offering launches a new four-book series to follow the Baxter Family Dramas, which have nearly two million copies in print. She introduces a few new faces and follows familiar characters like the Baxters through their mostly sunny lives. Unfortunately, the plot is all but nonexistent. Hunky actor Dayne Matthews and the lovely Katy Hart are engaged to be married, but they face a dilemma: how to plan a private wedding that won't be overrun by reporters desperate for a shot of the Hollywood heartthrob tying the knot. Dayne hires a Tinseltown wedding planner who specializes in secret star nuptials, although Katy frets that keeping the wedding hush-hush may necessitate deceiving some close friends and relatives. Meanwhile, Jim Flanigan, football coach at Clear Creek High, suspects his players are drinking and tries to crack down. Inspirational platitudes litter the pages ("Jim already knew the possibilities. Now it was a matter of trusting God for the outcome"). Readers new to Kingsbury will have a little trouble keeping the characters straight and figuring out the backstory, but her many fans will relish this visit with old and new friends, despite the clichs.

Reviews - What do customers think about Sunrise (Sunrise V1)?

Sunrise is excellent!!  Mar 26, 2010
I absolutely LOVE anything by Karen Kingsbury, but the Baxter family series has become my favorite! I have to remind myself that they are a fictional family because I can really get caught up in their "life stories". This one though, had me sobbing in the final pages...I had to hurry up and get to Summer so that I could move on to happier moments! :) Looking forward to the next series of books - Take 1, 2 and 3! Keep 'em coming and I guarantee I'll keep reading and passing them on to friends!
AMZING  Mar 25, 2010
This was the first Karen Kingsbury book I picked up at the library and read... WOW! I was hooked!
I went back and started at the beginning of this series.
Sunrise  Jul 9, 2009
Cover and first couple pages of book in very poor condition but once into the book the pages were fine.
Sunrise series-book 1  Feb 17, 2009
This book came quickly after I ordered it and in great condition. I'd definitely order from this seller again.
get the actual book, not the audio book  Feb 16, 2009
I have read all of the Baxter books in each series, except for one book: Sunrise. I had no time to sit down and read the book, so I picked up the audio book. HUGE mistake. I did not care for Sandra Burr's voice at all. All of the men sound gruff and show no emotion. All of the women sound airy and whimsical like they're living in a dream world. After having read all of the other books, this audio book really ruined the series for me. I wish I would have waited until I had time to read the book myself.
