Book Review: A Billion Reasons Why

A Billion Reasons Why, by Kristin Billerbeck is an ideal modern-day fairy tale that expresses underlying faith-based values.  As the story unfolds, more of Katie’s past is revealed, particularly her relationship with Luc, her father’s secrets, and the current location of her family's heirloom engagement ring.

Currently, Katie McKenna enjoys a pleasant life in northern California, as a school teacher for special needs students, and she is happily engaged to Dexter Hastings.  Only eight years ago, she was living in her hometown of New Orleans in the Irish Channel neighborhood with her parents, as well as working through college as a 40s-style singer and dancer.  Due to an embarrassing public breakup with her boyfriend and various family issues, Katie left New Orleans with no plans to return.

However, Katie’s past—Luc DeForges—waltzes back into her life with a seemingly simple request…return to New Orleans with him to attend and sing at his brother’s wedding.  With the daunting decision of returning home continues to burdens her, Katie must face her past.

Yet, as her past unfolds into the present, Katie is left wondering if her solid and predictable engagement to Dexter is the right decision.  She’s thought of a billion reasons why she should marry Dexter, but there are a billion reasons why she still might be in love with Luc.

This book is geared more towards women readers, particularly those who enjoy reading modern chick-lit with a clean romantic storyline.  While the plot is slightly typical, A Billion Reasons Why is a captivating book and definitely worth reading.

Note: I received this book from B and B Media, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
