A Moment of Weakness by Karen Kingsbury

It has been a long time since I have read a fiction book for review. And I gotta tell ya I was so happy to have accepted A Moment of Weakness for review! Reading this book I immediately fell into the storyline. I found myself allowing an hour to read and then spent many hours in a comfy chair on my back porch. I hated to put this book down and I was sad for it to end!

Jade Connor was cool. Just a downright strong women with a heart of gold. She was a victim of many sad people's ignorance. Without being a spoiler, I did shake my fist a few times and ask "Why Jade? Why did you do it?" I just felt she led with her emotions too often and it made me frustrated. But I loved her because I saw me in her - the person who does not give up and always looks for the good in others. And I was happy to know her faith journey led her far.

In trying to find a fault in this book, I came up short. I could not find a single detail, errror or inconsistency. I only share that because in reading an entire book, there is always one picayune detail I come up with which I feel the need to share.

I realized in reading A Moment of Weakness that I need to read more Karen Kingsbury books! Her writing style is so fresh and to the point. I like that the details are not over emphasized or "wordy". She writes with crisp sentences and I do believe this is what makes me so easily get drawn into the story. I feel like Jade and Tanner are my friends. For the one week it took me to finish this book, I felt their presence as I thought often of them and what would happen in their world.

I cried, laughed and just thoroughly enjoyed A Moment of Weakness. I need to do more of this type of reading. These types of books are like a spa day for your soul. Reading truly does take you places can never go. I want to be in  Jade and Tanner's world forever.....
