Loving Reader Reviews
Review by Pat, April 4, 2012
Every time I read a book in this series I think the next one can't be any better, but I'm always (happily) wrong. Loving was wonderful. Such a great story. I hate for this series to end. All of the characters seem like family to me! May God keep giving you such great story ideas that touch hearts and change lives! I hope one day to meet you in person - if not here on this earth then in heaven with our blessed savior! Thank you for each book, can't wait for more!

I love Karen Kingsbury books, she is a very talented author and makes the characters seem real and makes you get to know them. This is the first time I've ever been disappointed. From the beginning Cody and Bailey belonged together, I think Brandon would have been a better match for Andi. This story was very similar to Katy and Dayne's. Was hoping Cody was going to fight for Cody and show her how much he loved her. Still looking forward to whatever comes next. Karen Kingsbury is still my favorite author :)

The Bailey Flanigan series was the BEST! I know so many readers wanted Bailey and Cody to end up together. Cody is a good man and brings hope and change to people he touches, but from a romantic standpoint, Cody has a lot to learn. Brandon pursued Bailey beautifully and he'd never run away from Bailey or leave her wondering about why things happened. Cody had never been forthright in his thoughts or feelings and because of that, pushed Bailey and all of the Flanagan's away. Not a good receipe for a life of open and honest love. Thank you, Karen, for giving Bailey to Brandon. It was the right decision and I'm very happy about the conclusion of this series. So what's next? Please don't stop writing about the Flanigan's and the Baxter's. It would break my heart if I could never hear about their lives again...Please let us know!!

I was thrilled with the way Loving ended, Cody was so much more of a brother. Brandon swept me away with the way he treated Bailey, every girls dream to be treated that way. Very happy to see Andi and Cody together. Thank you so much for your books, they have helped me through a lot of rough times.

As I skim through these reviews I notice that the majority of them state that in their review that they are for team cody, and although I do agree he is a good guy, I believe he is not right for bailey. Yes cody had a rough life and has done amazing things, but he said he loved bailey, and when you look at the bibles definition of love in 1 Cor 13:4 and compare it to cody's actions, you will see that they don't match up. When you love someone you don't leave them, ignore them, and don't talk to them with the excuse that you "don't want to hurt them" because that is just a sorry excuse. However, if you look at the way brandon showed his love for bailey and compare it to 1 Cor 13:4 you will see that it matches. Bailey and every girl in the world, every daughter, sister, and mother deserves the kind of never ceasing love that God wanted for everyone of us. He wanted us to have the kind of love that he shares with us in 1 Cor 13:4 and the way that he loves us, which if you read the books is the way Brandon loves Bailey. Cody is a great guy on paper but he didn't love bailey the way fathers and mothers would want their daughters to be loved. Fathers and mothers would want their daughters to have an everlasting, never ceasing love that God wants us to have, the kind of love that Bailey and Brandon have.

Thank you for writing books that focus on God and His will for our lives, His unconditional and powerful redeeming love through believable characters going through real life situations, who allow God to work and move in their lives in His timing. I love the story of Bailey and Cody, as well as all of the Baxters and other characters. I just want to say that I am impressed with the conclusion of Bailey's story. During the first few books I really hoped that Cody and Bailey would find their way to each other, but sometimes even though we love someone and have a deep connection and years of history, they simply are not the person God has chosen for us to spend our life with. This is what I found to be the case with Bailey and Cody. I soon came to love Brandon and his character. He absolutely proved his love for Bailey. The way he pursued her and lived out his love through his actions was so sweet. Especially his intergrity in the whole "Hollywood" realm. Also, I think that Cody and Andi are perfect for each other. I love that her story was not forgotten. It was great to finally see Cody happy and feeling "ten feet tall." So thank you for the amazing books you write and sharing your God given talent with millions of people. Looking forward to reading many more!

So sad to see the end of the Bailey Flanigan series. The ending was wonderful, and unexpected. I would just like to know how they end up in life. Will there be kids, more movies, and greater faith? I would even like to know the road Conner travels down, and what happens to Andi. I hope ther will be more to come.
