A feel good romance

If you enjoy a feel good romance, a book that you'll finish reading and just want to give it a hug.  Then Always on my Mind by Susan May Warren is a great read to pick up!
I've read a few other Christiansen Family novels before in her series, so I knew even before I started the first page, that I would likely enjoy this book.

Raina Beaumont, is your average girl, with average problems who makes average mistakes.  Except recently her average mistake lead to more than she could have anticipated.  After loosing what may have been the love of her life.  She is now alone single and expecting a child any day, she isn't sure what to do with her life, let alone the baby.

Casper Christiansen is an adventure seeker who loves to search for treasure.  After his trip to Honduras failed to help him forget the woman who filled his heart and then broke it he isn't sure what to do.  But one thing is certain, he isn't going to find it on another treasure hunt, at least not right now.  So home to Minnesota is where he is headed, with a little hope that visiting Raina and getting past some unresolved feelings may make a difference.
The only problem is, when he imagined seeing Raina again, it wasn't anything as he expected. Especially since only minutes after seeing her, he is helping rush her to the hospital to have a baby. He's also pretty sure that the baby, is someone else's, the same someone that caused him to leave Minnesota in the first place.

When Raina makes it clear that there is no future for her and Casper, he does what he knows.  He goes home, to Deep Haven, to reset and see where he wants to go from there.
Unexpectedly, and unknowing of Casper's plans, Raina also makes her way home to Deep Haven. Eventually their paths collide, and Casper decides if he can't have her, he still wants her as a friend. However, the problem with friendships, sometimes they can lead to more, and sometimes less.  But at the same time, you never know what kind of adventure either can bring.

Susan May Warren does it again, and brings us into another Christiansen's family romance.  With her ability to create characters that we love, and can relate to.  With a story line that could be something real rather than just fictional.  You won't be disappointed!
I loved this book, and loved the characters, you really do walk away from this read feeling good!
I recommend this book for ages 16+, its content is appropriate for any audience.

  1. Hi there,One dedicated characteristic of Susan's stories is her message and tie in with the narrative of Christ's redemption.She perfectly illustrates through her characters' lives the sacrifice of Jesus,His persevering quest for mankind, and His ready forgiveness and love.God's love is not gave on individuals due to their achievements,but rather in light of elegance indicated to them in brokenness.Thank you.
