    Painter Place is absolutely gorgeous in its detail rich descriptions With her artistic eye, Pamela Poole knows her canvas and she describes it with vibrant colors The 80s timeframe caught my attention and brought a little something different to the scene while allowing the book to remain relevant.There are quite a few characters in Painter Place It did take me a few chapters before I had a handle on who everyone was and their place in the story But having so many characters wasn t a detrimen Painter Place is absolutely gorgeous in its detail rich descriptions With her artistic eye, Pamela Poole knows her canvas and she describes it with vibrant colors The 80s timeframe caught my attention and brought a little something different to the scene while allowing the book to remain relevant.There are quite a few characters in Painter Place It did take me a few chapters before I had a handle on who everyone was and their place in the story But having so many characters wasn t a detriment, it added additional layers to Caroline s story and allowed for deeper reflection in the forgiveness storyline.Bit by bit, Caroline s story is revealed until we eventually have the whole picture The author did a good job with not overloading the unveiling, she allowed it to happen with a natural flow that accentuated the story and ensures the reader will remain captive to the story.I did find the writing asomnipotent than true third person, and that took some getting used to Once I came to expect it though, the result wasn t as jarring There s also a good deal of telling instead of showing throughout the reading, but again, once I came to expect it, I didn t mind much.By far, my favorite part of the writing was the strong Christian elements Caroline Painter s family have a strong faith and a solid Christian foundation This is seen throughout the book without fail, and I applaud Pamela Poole s ability to keep such a strong element going Despite Caroline being faced with challenge after challenge, she keeps a strong faith and uses the knowledge she has gained through her Christianity to work through the trials and find a way to forgive those who she believes have betrayed her.I would recommend this book for anyone who loves a richly detailed contemporary romance with a strong Christain theme You ll not be disappointed.I requested a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit I was not required to leave a positive review All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own

    I enjoyed the story and especially loved reading about painting My husband airbrushes, so I am always amazed at how someone can turn a canvas into art Caroline is a sweet young woman who is very gifted Reading about her different paintings was easy to visualize The time period was a breath of fresh air for me I don t remember many books set during this time and it was fun to be reminded of what it was like I loved the references to bands like Kansas I remember listening to them and ot bro I enjoyed the story and especially loved reading about painting My husband airbrushes, so I am always amazed at how someone can turn a canvas into art Caroline is a sweet young woman who is very gifted Reading about her different paintings was easy to visualize The time period was a breath of fresh air for me I don t remember many books set during this time and it was fun to be reminded of what it was like I loved the references to bands like Kansas I remember listening to them and ot brought back some good memories for me.The author does an excellent job of describing places and making readers feel like they are there Caroline is offered a chance of a lifetime to go with her uncle to England to film an art series I would be jumping up and down if given that chance to visit England I loved the romance in the book and how easy it was for Caroline to share her faith with others There is a particular person she leads to Jesus that was so well written, I cried It reminded me to not pass up a chance to share Jesus with others.I loved how the author explored trust with the characters Caroline is definitely struggling with this issue when someone from her past shows up I liked Chad and felt he was a gentleman trying to find forgiveness Will Caroline give him a second chance It was so nice to read how important it was to stay pure until marriage I think that is what makes me like Chad so much He has strong morals and is trying to win Caroline back.The story is a look at what happens when secrets are exposed and learning how to forgive We all have trust issues and can be stubborn when it comes to forgiving I loved how Chad and Caroline slowly started to open up to each other and share their feelings The story is a great example of putting God first in your life and allowing Him to be part of your marriage I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit The review is my own opinion

    I know this story is a love and a second chance at love but my favorite part of the story is where Caroline explains to the children how God making clothes out of animals s skins was a picture of what God did when He sent Jesus I know you are thinking, Why is that your favorite scene, it is because it is a reminder of something that we all forget to often, that Jesus s blood has covered all our sins like a pure what robe.This scene was in the book because Caroline is an artist and a young boy t I know this story is a love and a second chance at love but my favorite part of the story is where Caroline explains to the children how God making clothes out of animals s skins was a picture of what God did when He sent Jesus I know you are thinking, Why is that your favorite scene, it is because it is a reminder of something that we all forget to often, that Jesus s blood has covered all our sins like a pure what robe.This scene was in the book because Caroline is an artist and a young boy tells her that his mother told him not to hang around authors because they painted people with nothing on them but their skins.I really enjoyed Painter Place I am really looking forward to reading the other two books in this series I love how Caroline s faith changes a rock band s focus and how forgiveness is also part of this story.This was such a great story from the beginning to the end I recommend this book to everyone that loves clean romance with a twist The scenes were written so well that I felt like I was seeing the places described.I received a complementary copy by the Celebrate Lit and the author These opinions are my own
