    4. We were surprised by this book, it wasn t what we thought it would be We enjoyed reading Grace Notes by Jerry Cole, but missed the romance of this well, romance.Gil DuPont is a loner, his parent passed away at a young age and with only an absent older sister as his family, he has fallen into a solitary life, finding it easier to stay to himself rather than get mixed up in feeling for someone who is going to leave or disappoint him one day What he doesn t count on is an 8 yer old niece appearing [...]

    5. When I finished this book, I thought back to what I had read to write this review, and couldn t find anything to say I didn t dislike the book, but there was also nothing about it that particularly stuck out to me either Gil seemed to have a potential history backstory that would have been cool to explore further but it didn t happen Micah was earnest and sincere, but completely flat and one dimensional as a main character.I didn t find the romance between Gil and Micah to be engaging, and we ac [...]

    7. Let me talk about what I enjoyed about this story before I get to what I didn t like The story was good I liked the relationship between Roxy and Gil I like how he accepted her and fought for her I also enjoyed the introduction of Micah into their lives Him and Gil made a great couple Plus, I was happy about someone helping Roxy with her hair As a black woman, I appreciated someone helping Roxy with her hair, especially after that white lady called her hair unruly Now on to what I didn t like Th [...]

    8. This book had a few moments of steam but than anything it was about love, family, connection, and forgiveness It was very sweet and gave such a feeling of hope in the end From loneliness to love, Gil was changed the most in this story As the main character, he was obviously the focus, but the whole thing really revolved around him and his reaction to all the changes thrust on him Micah was good in the periphery, as he challenged Gil and encouraged him to continue loving Roxy as he has been As f [...]

    9. The book blurb tells the story a lot better than I ever could This was as sweet entertaining book with threads of realism Gil, a bachelor, self proclaimed loner, is suddenly granted custody of a niece, a mixed raced Roxy, while her mother, his sister is in rehab for substance abuse He was thirty four years, set in his ways, in a shabby mobile home and he was so tempted to say no He thinks back to his sister, who took care of him, at ten, when both parents died in a car crash He wondered what if [...]

    10. This book was ok for me I wanted and hoped I would love the love story of Gil and Micah but I didn t However, I did love the story of Gil and Roxy That storyline was simply beautiful and heartwarming I really didn t feel the connection between Gil and Micah and felt if that storyline was better or developed, I would have indeed When I reached the 70% completion part of this book I became concerned, realizing the opportunity would not be presented for the author to expound so on the love connec [...]

    12. This is an interesting story line It is well written and the dialogue is realistic The characters are great Poor Gil does not know what hits him when he opens his door one night to Child Services His sister that he has not seen in years needs him to take on his niece The dialogue between him and his niece is well written She sounds like a kid not a little adult Micah is also a nice character He is the social worker sent to Gil and his niece In my opinion it takes a lot of time for him to arrive [...]

    13. Gil DuPont is shocked one evening when two ladies turn up on their doorstep and inform him that they have a little girl with them who have his niece with them who needs a home Her mother is in hospital for treatment for alcoholism and had specifically said he was to look after her, even though she had never told him she had a child.Gil and his niece Roxy get along really well after a bumpy 24 hours and then his social worker turns up to meet them He is gorgeous and they both give the other the o [...]

    14. A very sweet, reasonably simple story about an uncle who is suddenly faced with the existance of his niece, as he needs to step up and take care of her while his semi estranged sister gets help for addiction and illness He steps up to the plate quite quickly, and ends up on top of that having feelings for the social worker attached to their case The story is pretty straightforward, almost to a fault, but the characters are so sweet and believable that it was a real joy to read as they developed [...]

    16. CALI loved this book It wasn t overly long but the story was strong and gave you a lovely beginning, middle and end The author presented well rounded characters with full insight into their personality and background I loved this story and would highly recommend it as a very pleasant and quick read I can t see anyone dissatisfied with this book I look forward to from this author.

    17. I was disapointed with this book The story was actually a good one but executed a bit weak and not as gripping as the other books from Jerry I have read Another complaint, again, is, that it ends to abrupt Why not try a different ending, an epilogue, taking place 6 months, a year or two later to show, that the couple is really well matched and still happy.I read a complimentary Advanced Reader Copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.

    18. Totally DNF.Started off as a decent enough story, cute premise, but then I got to the below passage Gil wondered whether the tale of black men and their anatomy was just that a tale, or whether there was any truth to it WOW I noped out of there SO fast How can anyone in this day and age actually write a sentence like that UGH x 10000.

    19. BeautifulWhat can I say this book was heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time Gil taking responsibility of his niece whose mother is dealing with a drinking problem whose taking responsibility for that problem this was a beautiful thing for Gil to do then he found love and a second chance at a life after everything he and sister went through

    20. A Must ReadAn absolutely fantastic story Characters are fully developed likeable people The story line is truly inspiring and touching Another great hit for Jerry His books are some of the best I ve read And this one maybe one of the best I ve read in a very long time Love to see a sequel to these characters in Grace Notes

    21. Enjoyed the depth of this colorful story Fella going through life then bam things change What I don t understand is the cover selection You have clearly created this multicultural story but the cover does not reflect that Why

    22. I loved this story It was amazing and had so many wonderful emotions love sadness happiness and of course the love of a child this was sweet this was an easy read this was amazing i loved it and im glad i got to review it

    23. A beautiful storyWhat a beautiful story of healing and love I really loved this story and the writer s words being these characters to life I recommend this book to you

    24. Grace notesAn excellent read Held me until the last sentence I kinda didn t want the book to end Be even better with a sequel.
