Reviews - What do customers think about Whatever Tomorrow Brings (The Californians, Book 1)?

One of Lori's worst  Jan 19, 2006
First of all, I am not 13 or younger, I just don't have an account.

But anyways. I am a big fan of Lori Wick, ever since I read the book Where The Wild Rose Blooms. But this has got to be one of the worst books she has ever written, even worse that the English Garden Series. The characters are disgustingly perfect: Kate is gorgeous and unaware of it (hah, somehow I doubt that would happen in real life) does everything perfect, and everybody loves her. Rigg is handsome and adores Kate. They marry. Wow. I'm sooo surprised.

This book has no plot. The beginning was pretty good, but after the 1st 5 chapters all you are waiting for is for them to get married. Great. Wow, I never would have predicted that.

There is only one good reason to read this book: Sean Donovan and Donovan's Daughter. To understand the 3rd and 4th books in the series, you have to read this one. So I advise you just to skim it and go immediately and read the 3rd and 4th books, which are excellent.

And if you have never read Lori Wick before and won't have the motivation to skim the entire book, then I advise you, go read Where The Wild Rose Blooms (Rocky Mountain Memories). That is an excellent, romantic book where the characters are not disgustingly perfect and not everything goes how it plans to.
Wonderful  Jan 5, 2005
When I read the reviews for this book I couldn't believe my eyes! This is an excellent book, I have read it a countless amount of times and I never tire of it. I have read the Yellow Rose Trilogy as well and I don't see that much of a resemblance.
Kaitlin, after losing her mother and her father going back to Hawaii, sets out for Santa Rosa with her younger brother and sister to acquire a teaching position.
She meets a man name Marshall Riggs who is not as he first appears. He immediately falls for Kaitlin, who is not ready for that kind of relationship even though she admits she is very attracted to him.
As more bad news comes from Kaitlin's father, she and Riggs draw closer together.
I originally read this book when I borrowed it from the library, as soon as I had finished I knew I had to buy it, and I did. You should do the same, you won't be sorry.
Mediocre read  Aug 28, 2003
I realize that Christian writing has to be limited in many aspects. It should be clean, edifying, and glorify God. That doesn't mean, however that it should be mediocre and predictable. Wick's characters are flatly two-dimensional. Almost everybody in the book is perfect-nauseatingly so. The heroine, Katie, is beautiful, tall, curvy, good to children, smart,adored by everybody, and should have cartoon Disney animals following her around and singing to her throughout the story. I wonder-did she ever go to the bathroom or have bad breath? Katie's siblings and love interest are also all good looking, and for the most part perfect as well. Riggs of course, is tall, handsome, funny, and a succesful business man. It is hard for the reader to really get involved with these unrealistic people; not that it matters,it's fairly obvious how the story is going to turn out.
Another stomach-turning aspect of this book is the fact that everybody cries or gets teary eyed over everything. Practically all one has to do is drop a dish towel, and it's time to gather together to weep for a few minutes. Well placed emotion can add to a story, but not if it's every few pages.
Structurally there are also some akward and poorly phrased sentences. Editing was a little weak.
One good thing about this book is that Wick isn't shy about sharing her faith and talking about Jesus, and that is done in a pretty natural way.
It can be a challenge to find a book that is devoid of violence, cursing, and sex. This book does fit that criteria. It is also pretty devoid of substance.
Disgusting at Times  May 22, 2002
OK, I like reading a nice light Lori Wick book from time to time, just like everyone else. Some are really cute... but others, like this one, are absolutely sickening. Everything about this book was wrong. First, it was obviously edited badly because it doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that there were many, many missed commas in obvious places. Also, this book seems a little contrived-like, haven't we read the "girl goes out West and meets perfect man" a few times before in a Lori Wick book? Some realistic characters that we can all relate to would be nice, too. I mean, unlike Kaitlin, I am not always perfectly sweet, demure, calm and composed-and it seemed like everyone else in this book was just a great person also (a.k.a. Rigg). Frankly, it made me want to GAG most of the time. It got really boring to hear more of each characters' perfect thoughts. To sum it up...a very poorly written, contrived book with perfectly "puppet-like" characters and bad editing. Can't Lori do better than this?????
Same story, different town  Feb 2, 2002
I first read the Yellow Rose Trilogy which I loved!!! That is why I bought the California series. I am giving this 2 stars not because it isn't a good book. It would have been a good book if I hadn't read the Yellow Rose Trilogy first. This is more of the same. Boy meets girl. Won't admit their love. Share a common faith. Finally admit they love each other. The only thing different is the names and the town!! Lori Wick is an excellent author and I share her faith in Christ. I just feel this is "more of the same".
