Book Review: Almost Forever

It is no secret that I am a huge Deborah Raney fan and her latest book, ALMOST FOREVER does not disappoint.

The story is about love, betrayal and guilt, all rolled up into one tension building story. What I loved so much about this story and all of Raney’s books, are the redemptive themes. The book portrayed Bryn’s guilt for the death of 5 firefighters with clarity and depth. And the responses to life’s mistakes that ripple through other’s lives and just what happens when one careless action affects an entire town

Reading this book was like coming home. The book deals with the human condition in a way that the reader actually feels their lives unfold. I believed all the motives behind the actions and loved the romance that was sprinkled through the story.

It got tense about half way through the book and I was anxious for the characters and what would happen to them.

It felt well researched and I loved every minute. Like being wrapped in a warm blanket, ALMOST FOREVER drew me in and tugged on my heart strings. A true keeper.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author for my copy to review.

  3. I really enjoy Mrs. Raney's books too and was delighted a few years ago to find out that she is acquainted with the family of one of my good girlfriends! We E-mailed back and forth a few times, she is so sweet. :) I'm looking forward to reading Almost Forever.
