I wish this novella was slightly longer. It was such a cute story it would be lovely to see the great aspects of these characters in play a little more. But, it is a complete story with a sweet ending.

Liberty likes to help people who need her. This never exceeded personal boundaries, so was interesting to see her use her spiritual gift of listening and helping other people. Just as in life, sometimes our strengths can become a weakness though. Her tender heart and her own loneliness, after self-isolation with cancer, leads her to speak to her new employer on his radio show under an assumed name. This is not a problem until he wants to meet her assumed persona for a date. Everything unravels quickly.

I enjoyed that this novella was easy to get into despite not having read the previous one in the series. Another couple begins a tentative relationship in Sincerely Yours that looks like it will be fun to follow in the next book. If you enjoy inspiring contemporary romance, this is an enjoyable read.

I received a free copy of this book. All opinions are completely my own. First reviewed on BookofRuthAnn.com ( )

Kari Trumbo’s newest book, Sincerely Yours, introduces an interesting premise to your standard Christian romance.

Liberty Dryden lost her job and was offered one by her best friend’s husband. However, there was one strange caveat; she had to deal with her boss, Tom Higgs, through e-mails only.

Needing to know more about her job and wanting to learn more about Tom, Liberty does something that on the surface seemed okay, but in the end, her “sin of omission” created havoc in her, Tom and her friend’s lives.

The story is somewhat emotional because of trials Tom and Liberty face. I came to care for them both, as I read about the circumstances they were facing and how they struggled to overcome them. One thing they both did is something I struggle with myself - relying on themselves or friends to get them through circumstances they should turn to God for.

This aspect of the book resonated with me greatly. I personally prefer Christian fiction (though I do read non-Christian and non-fiction, too), and because there wasn’t but a smidgen of Biblical beliefs in the book, I wished there were more instances of them turning to God. For me, when there is less turning to God by the characters, it causes me to look up verses to help me with my own trials, thus becoming a teaching tool, too. If you think about it, that’s a good thing!

Trumbo’s books are always good, and you can’t go wrong reading them. I’m looking forward to the sequels in this series and learning more about Liberty and Tom’s friends.

I received Sincerely Yours from Celebrate Lit. However, I was under no obligation to post a review. ( )

Sincerely Yours is one of those books that pulls you into the story and does not let go. Liberty Dryden has experienced the horrors that cancer can bring, including losing her job. But when her best friend’s husband offers her a marketing job working with one client to start off. She eagerly jumps into the experience. However, one minor, no make that very major detail proves to be a roadblock.

Tom Higgs is a DJ and station owner who suffers from stuttering, especially around women. He has been burned by a woman in the past, so he refuses to let anyone into his life. So Liberty does the only thing a lady can do in this circumstance, she calls into his station and pretends to be someone else. She does not want to hurt him, all he wants to do is get to know him. When Liberty is diagnosed with cancer a second time, she struggles to keep her life together.

I can not imagine only communicating with someone through emails, especially when working with them. With cancer, heartbreak, unintentional deception, and more, this book has a lot to offer. Kari Trumbo creates characters I love reading about, even when they are from a prior book or a future book because it creates a world I want to read more about each time.

So if you love books that are part of a series that create incredible storyline and worlds, check out this book for yourself. ( )

Author Kari Trumbo has penned a story with several subjects that are traumatic to deal with: loneliness, cancer, stuttering, and depression and she shows how they can alter a person's self-esteem. Liberty Dryden feels alone since her best friend got married and Tom Higgs believes that women are only interested in his fame and fortune. Liberty needs a job and Tom needs a marketing coordinator for his nationwide radio stations. Is it possible that they might be the answer to each other's problems?

Trumbo packs a lot of drama into the 162 pages of Sincerely Yours. There is a daughter searching for a father she's never met, a relationship that is threatened by a secret, and a friendship that develops through email correspondence. Could this friendship become more? Is it possible to fall in love with someone you've never seen?

There is also a sweet romance between two very likable characters and an intriguing plot with a subtle faith message. I recommend Sincerely Yours to anyone who enjoys contemporary Christian fiction.

I received a copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit. I wasn't obligated to write a favorable review. These are my own thoughts. ( )

There are so many wonderful nuggets of goodness in this book that I don’t know where to begin. I was intrigued by the title and wondered how it would fit into the story. Liberty is such a relatable character that I wanted to be her friend. Well at least while reading the story, I was her friend. She has gone through several difficult situations in her life recently and it has caused her to be a bit lonely and isolated. Oh my dear friend Liberty I know all about loneliness. Changes are hard for some people and as Liberty adjusts to her best friend being married, she feels a little left out.
Tom is someone that could easily be a great friend. He has a heart for God but he also is feeling lonely. When Liberty becomes a business associate for Tom, it is hard for them to communicate. They usually email each other and slowly get to feel comfortable sharing things. Now Liberty is still guarded but the way she reaches out to Tom was brilliant. Before I go any farther I have to say something about emails. I have found several wonderful friends that started by emails. These women have become great friends to me and are always there to lift me up and encourage me.
Now back to my review. Through a series of misunderstandings a relationship is damaged. I know Liberty’s heart was in the right place because she has such a caring heart for others. Her mistake was not trusting her friendship with others and found herself alone once again. That’s all I can say about the story because I don’t want to give anything away.
I will say that this story was exactly what I needed to read. I needed to be reminded that people do care, and want to be part of your life. Forgiveness frees us from depression, anger, and allows joy back into our lives. The author has written a story that has inspired me when I needed it most. Thank you for reminding me that I am important.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion. ( )
