Then, Again - Karen Stivali This is my first venture into a Karen Stivali book.. Karen, she's a keeper. I only wish I had Then, Again in paperback so I could read it over and over!

Then, Again is a timeless love story. It's has that perfect blend of romance, steamy scenes and a little sadness to keep it real. I was addicted from the very first page and couldn't put it down til I got to the end. I cried and cried over Kay's grandmother dying and the days leading up to her funeral. I smiled thru my tears at Grandma's friends Trixie and Rosalie who were not only hilarious - in a way only old ladies can be, but were there to mourn with Kay. I fell in love with James from the first moment I met him and saw how Kay's heart sped up despite all she was going thru just by seeing him. "The One". I recognized that feeling immediately from finding my own "The One" and sympathized with all Kay's thoughts on whether he was just being nice or really liked her. The chemistry between Kay & James was remarkable to read and I absolutely loved how we alternated between their views and got to have a little inside to Jame's head as well! I honestly don't have a single bad thing to say about this one, it was a well written, wonderful love story that we all need once in a while.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review- it in no way influenced my thoughts. *
