Like Dandelion Dust by Karen Kingsbury is about a heart-wrenching tale centered on a young boy's custody battle, whisked away from his beloved adoptive parents and placed in the turbulent world of his biological parents, with one parent displaying abusive tendencies. The story managed to retain my interest, yet certain elements left me yearning for more, 3.5 stars.

Having previously delved into Kingsbury's "9/11 series" and "Angels Walking series" - both of which I deeply cherished - I found this novel falling short of the same depth and emotional pull. While the premise was undeniably compelling, some parts seemed unrealistic or hastily crafted. The characters, for the most part, seemed to be too perfect, depriving the story of genuine emotional layers. Wendy's portrayal was the exception, offering more depth and complexity, though her conclusion was somewhat lackluster.

The novel did present poignant messages and touching moments, especially towards its conclusion. Knowing that a film adaptation exists, I am eager to explore that rendition as I think this story premise has the makings of a great movie.

Mistletoe Miracles!

This is a collection of true stories, miraculous events, that took place during the Christmas season.

Many lovely stories will be found between the covers. For instance, there is the time a perfect gift appeared for a little girl who desperately needed a friend. In another case, a plane that was in trouble was only able to land with the help and encouragement from an employee in the airport tower. Experience the surprise the pilot did when he wanted to thank him.

All the stories are good, but the story that touched my heart was from the author, Karen Kingsbury. She relates a series of miracles that took place after the death of her father.

This little book is hardbacked and would be a great gift, or you might not be able to give it up, and keep it for yourself. Although these events take place during Christmas time, the book will be appreciated throughout the year. The stories can be read all at once, or stretched out to be enjoyed over time. Fans of true miracle events will love this five-star book!

Thank you, Worthy Publishing, for providing Tickmenot with a book to review. Opinions are my own.

Disappointing. I like Luke was broody and he struggled with his faith. On other hand, the rest of the story was just bad. I did not enjoy it like I did the other two books in the series. I was excited to see Luke's story. Kingsbury made him so unlikable. I do not think the ending moved me as much as the other books in the series. Luke still did not become likable to me. Which is sad, because I wanted to like him.
