What did I think about it..
There's something about a Debbie Macomber story which guarantees a delightful read and which is infused with wonderful characters who get right into your heart and soul.
Meeting Shay Benson is like discovering a decent and trustworthy friend who is down on her luck and who you immediately want to see set back on the righteous path that she so well deserves. When Shay meets with Drew Douglas for the first time you get a sense of how the story will pan out but the journey they each take is filled with this author's trademark skill in drawing the best out of her characters.
I really enjoyed getting to know both Shay and Drew and followed their relationship with great interest and felt an emotional connection to them as each struggled to come to terms with how the community around them viewed their burgeoning relationship.
Filled with quirky characters who add light and shade Any Dream will Do is about the bonds of friendship, the prejudices of a small town who are resentful of strangers, and of the danger of family commitments when those obligations go beyond propriety.
Beautifully written with a fine eye for detail and a good dollop of sweet romance, Any Dream will Do is a delightful read by an author who has the unique ability of holding the reader in the palm of her hand. Infused within the pages is such a warm and wonderful story that you can't help but keep turning the pages, always wanting to read just a little bit more about those characters who very soon become as familiar as friends.
