Book Review - Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate

Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate is the third book in her Daily, Texas series, although it can easily be read as a stand alone title, it makes you want to go back and read more about the town of Daily, Texas and its inhabitants....

From the publisher:

Sometimes Life's Storms Blow in Unexpected Possibilities Never Say Never Kai Miller floats through life like driftwood tossed by waves. She's never put down roots --and she doesn't plan to. But when a chaotic hurricane evacuation lands her in Daily, Texas, she begins to think twice about her wayfaring existence. And when she meets hometown-boy Kemp Eldridge, she can almost picture settling down in Daily--until she discovers he may be promised to someone else. Daily has always been a welcoming place of refuge for those the wind blows in, but for Kai, it looks like it will be just another place to leave behind. Then again, Daily always has a few surprises in store--especially when Aunt Donetta Bradford has cooked up a scheme.

My review: This is a great, light read that encompasses values, romance and a little danger, Mother Nature style.  The book follows two story lines - that of Donetta Bradford and Kai Miller... it's interesting to see the story unfold from both perspectives as they both struggle to balance the past with the present and enrich their lives by embracing love.  It has a good moral message and a sweet story line.  It reminds us that there is still good happening in this world, even when the world seems to be turning upside down.  The story builds from Kai helping Donetta and her friends outrun a hurricane reminiscent of Rita and others... and ends up with both women finding what they need in life. 

If you like Christian fiction, small town stories and good writing.  I recommend adding this one to your summer reading list - it will make a good, thoughtful beach read - if you can wait that long to read it!  I also recommend checking out the first two books from the Daily Texas series:
