Book Review: Nickels

By Karen Baney
Publish Date: 2011
Genre: Christian Romance
Personal Rating: 4 stars

Book Summary:
Niki Turner has finally arrived. Her career as a Software Engineer is soaring—she has just been offered the company’s most sought after account, Helitronics. Life would be perfect, if she could stop her roommate from playing matchmaker.

Then Kyle Jacobs mysteriously re-enters her life. As painful memories resurface, his presence turns her life upside down and threatens to waylay her career. She must find a way to work with him—after all, he’s the helicopter flight consultant for the new flight control system she’s coding.

Can she forget the past and see him as the new man he has become? Or will her resentment keep her from finding what she has always been searching for?
My Review:
Free download for my Kindle. I enjoyed this book. It was a great love story. Two people who have been caught up in the past and trying to overcome those differences. They have a great group of support from friends and family.

I wouldn’t say it was an unusual story, as to me it was pretty typical for a romance. However, there were different events within the book that made it different enough that I enjoyed it. It does have a lot of religious actions and events. To me that was the point of the story, finding Jesus, and other ways to deal with hard times and events that we may not understand.

I enjoyed Niki’s character. She is a workaholic which is understandable, but amazing that she has accomplished so much. Kyle was also very likeable and a well developed character. I was a little annoyed with the off-side romance/relationship for Marcy and Chad, but not so much that it ruined the story.

This is a very well written book with great characters and events. The author did not go into too many details of the country, but enough that I could envision what the area looked like.
Verdict: 4 stars. Even though it was a typical romance, there were enough different events and interesting events that I enjoyed the story.

Recommendation: To anyone who likes romance or anyone who likes to read religious books.
