Readers hope that: The Best Is Yet to Come

A Novel

by Debbie Macomber

#TheBestIsYettoCome #NetGalley

Debbie Macomber has written a number of series and Christmas stories. I first read her series that began with 16 Lighthouse Road and made my way through each of the street named entries. This current title is a standalone.

Over the course of the novel, readers follow two characters who have complex histories . Cade is a war vet who is struggling with injuries both physical and psychological. Hope has faced her own losses and has moved to this small California town to have a new start. The two meet when each volunteers at an animal shelter. Dog, Shadow, also becomes a loved character to these two and to readers as well.

Readers follow Cade and Hope as they slowly become friends and, hopefully, something more. Each would so benefit from a good relationship.

Hope works as a teacher and school counselor. One of her brightest students also has issues. Is Hope’s advice to him right? Will he find his way? How much fallout will there be among the other students and the girl that he likes?

This book is titled The Best is Yet to Come. This is what readers will wish for these characters.

This is an easy read even as it touches on some sensitive issues. Fans of the author and women’s stories will want to give this one a look.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Random House-Ballantine Books for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
