      How refreshing this book was, but what else would I expect from LaVyrle Spencer. She just has a way of weaving a truly memorable story with such relatable characters. It was an honest story about grief and finding love in the unexpected. I loved both Lee and Christopher so much. They were very genuine and the build up was gradual and believeable. It was sweet without being cheesy. Just the right amount of everything.

    3. BJ Rose on said:

      WOW! This story was so emotionally draining through the first part that I had to put it down and do something physical to recharge. As this story opens, the heroine is a widow who loses her oldest child in a motorcycle accident, and we soon learn that two decades earlier she lost a baby to SIDS. This sounds like a bad soap opera, but in this author's hands, it becomes an uplifting story of dealing with loss.Unfortunately, IMO, this is marketed as a romance, and the focus in readers' minds is on [...]

      A wonderful relationship - much more than lust. A full story, a good story.This is romance with a womens fiction feel. There is a lot of grief in the first third of the book. A mother Lee loses her 25 year old son Greg in a motorcycle accident. Chris is Greg’s roommate and coworker. Chris mourns the loss with Lee and her family. I don’t want to read books about grief and depressing topics. But this was less troubling than I expected. The author wasn’t focused on making me cry or feel bad. [...]

      Preciosa historia, con su toque agridulce.Muy romantica, con protagonistas inmejorables.Recomendable sin ninguna duda.

    6. Elisabeth Cole on said:

      "Family Blessings" was an awesome book and what I would consider a true "older woman, younger man" scenario. Lee is a 45 year old woman whose son, Greg, is killed in an accident. She ends up relying on Greg's 30 year old friend, roommate and coworker Christopher, for help and guidance. They start out as acquaintances who are in mourning, slowing become friends and eventually fall in love. The pace of this story was perfect - nothing felt "insta" and it was completely believable. There were quite [...]

      I read this book years ago, and decided to search for it for Kindle. It was more expensive than the books I usually buy for my Kindle, and filled with typos, but I don't regret my choice for a second. This book was even better than I remembered it being, and is one of my favorites by this author. The characters are vividly drawn, and the changing of the POV between characters is done very well. Lee and Christopher are thrown together when Lee's son, and Christopher's roommate, dies suddenly. As [...]

      3.5 STARS"Widowed at an early age, 44-year-old Lee Reston has overcome many obstacles to raise three children and build a successful business. When her eldest son is killed in a motorcycle accident, Lee turns to his 30-year-old best friend for comfort--and falls in love with him." (From )I enjoyed this contemporary family fiction.

    9. Cindy on said:

      As usual, Spencer is able to take a sensitive subject and handle it with grace. I really liked this book till the end when I thought the main character became selfish, immature and overly mushy and it kind of ruined the whole premise of the story for me. Otherwise, it was easy to read, down to earth and relatable.

    10. Laura on said:

      What a great story. It started off with tears and ended in tears. There was a similar story in my family so I truly loved this.

      Lee Reston adalah seorang janda berusia 45 tahun dengan 3 orang anak. Selain kehilangan suami di usia 36 tahun, dia juga pernah kehilangan putranya yang baru berusia 3 bulan. Dia adalah seorang single mother yang mendedikasikan dirinya untuk anak-anaknya. Lalu putra sulungnya, Greg yang berprofesi sebagai polisi tiba-tiba tewas dalam kecelakaan. Dunia Lee pun runtuh. Dia tidak bisa menanggung lagi kehilangan keluarga. Untungnya datang Christopher. Teman sekamar Greg yang juga berprofesi sebagai [...]

      Great descriptive writing,This is the 2nd book I've read by this author and have enjoyed them both. Though she is billed as a 'romance' author, she is really a 'relationship' author, because her character definitely develop relationships. This author does a great job with character development, and with descriptions of people and places. I did feel the book dragged at one point, shortly after the relationship became physical. I guess the point was to let us know how passionate they were for each [...]

      Absolutely Best Book Read In YearsThis was the first LaVyrle Spencer book that I have ever read and now I am a fan for life. I've been really getting bored with writers like Nora Roberts who change the names of their characters and release the same stories over and over and there's never anything that causes the reader to remember the book when it's finished. The same can never be said about Family Blessings. From the first paragraph to the last sentence, it's very hard to put down. It's a sweet [...]

    14. Susan on said:

      I guess you would consider this a chic lit book, but it was pretty good and a fast read. It is about a woman whos son is killed in a motorcycle accident. The first part of the book deals with the grief she endures. I thought it was pretty hard to read because it dredged up some painful memories for me about my brother. The second part of the book is about her falling in love with one of her son’s friends and the struggle to find some happiness in her life again. Even though the second half was [...]

      Mala som chuť na romantiku. Z police som vytiahla knihu, ktorej lesklý obal ma od detstva priťahoval. Čítala som ju pred rokmi, ale veľa som si z nej nepamätala. Často som mala pocit, že ju čítam poprvýkrát. Veľmi sa mi páčila, prekvapivo emotívny príbeh (no možno ani nie, keď si uvedomím, že ho písala teta LaVyrle). Čítanie som si užila, postavy zamilovala, fandila som im a súcitila s nimi. Pekný príbeh. Odporúčam, ak máte náladu na niečo príjemne romantické [...]

      Family Blessings was really quite intriguing. It starts with a young policeman dying and prodeeds through the ensuing days with Christopher, his best cop friend, and Lee, his mother. The two move from grief sharing to so much more, leading to Lee's conflicts within herself and with her family. Good story.

    17. Madeline on said:

      Okay this book is a little bit weird, but that is just because of the age difference between the main couple. Always a little weird when the woman is like twenty years older then the man. Altogether it was a good book, though. Very bittersweet. Her son is dead, but she gets a whole new chapter to her life. A pretty sweet read.

    18. Ruth Margareth on said:

      3.5 stars for me actually. Gosh, it took me longer than usual to read a book It started off really slow and there were some details that should have been better left unwritten, but overall it was a refreshing, unconventional read.

    19. Eileen Carter on said:

      Great story that talks about a love that is sometimes though not so often any more consider taboo. An older woman with a much younger man. This book is well written and will be enjoyed by all who read it.

    20. Vickie Simpson on said:

      I love LaVyrle Spencer's books but was disappointed in this one. I just did not like the characters very much and it did not hold my attention. However, that is just my opinion. Other LaVyrle Spencer fans may love it.

    21. Maggie Shanley on said:

      A great tearjerker of a story, grabbed hold and made me cry through the whole thing! A story of death and an unexpected romance.

    22. Mary DiGrazio on said:

      This is one of a few of my favorite LaVyrle Spencer books. I've read it so many times - I get in the mood to0 read it. I've always loved the older woman/younger man theme.

    23. Joie Andrews on said:

      Love anything by LaVyrle Spencer. Morning glory is my favorite, though.

    24. Diane Wachter on said:

      HB-B @ 1993, 11/98. A widow with 3 children loses her oldest son in a motorcycle accident, and falls in love with his best friend. Good.

    25. C.L. Howland on said:

      A sensitive subject that Spencer handles with the beauty that is her style.

    26. Brenda French on said:

      One of my all time favorite books I have read it again and again over the years. I hate that Mrs. Spencer stopped writing.
