Almost Always by Bobbi Reed (review by Kristi)

almost always

From Goodreads: Here’s the way Eva sees it: if John is so concerned about her butting into strangers’ lives, he shouldn’t leave her sitting at a table in Bob Evans with nothing to occupy her time . . .

Enter Cecelia—a pregnant teenager who needs a family for her baby. Fate has placed her at the table behind Eva and John.

Now Eva has a chance—a chance to give her daughter, Shelly, the one thing Shelly desperately wants.

But nothing is ever as easy as it seems.

Because sometimes daughters are not born to us—they are gifted by desperate teenagers—or seated behind us at Bob Evans . . .

I really enjoyed this quick and easy read. I was pleasantly surprised (and a little shocked) that this was the author’s first work. The book had a good, solid story and well developed characters. I liked the flow of the book as it moved smoothly from chapter to chapter keeping my interest the entire way from beginning to end. In fact, I stayed up late to finish the book. I had to know what happened to everyone.

Even though the story is somewhat predictable and I guessed what was going to happen before it did, this was still a fun book to read. I’m pretty sure I would read more from this author. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quick, easy, light read.
