A Reason to Stay

Author: Kellie Coates Gilbert

Paperback: 336 Pages

Series: Texas Gold Collection

Publisher: Revell (October 6, 2015)


Sometimes the thing that keeps us from making the wrong choice is the one thing we can’t control As an investigative reporter and the host of her own TV talk show, Faith Marin works to expose the truth for her viewers. But in her personal life, she’s anchored her world with firm boundaries in order to hide a family history she’d like to forget. By contrast, her husband Geary’s life is an open book. An easygoing pro bass fisherman, Geary is the ultimate family man–and his overbearing relatives don’t know the meaning of boundaries. Faith and Geary haven’t been married long when their differences start to derail their tender relationship. Surely love shouldn’t be this hard. While Faith considers whether divorce is the only answer to their issues, tragedy strikes. With her life in the balance, she finds that the one she has been shutting out may be the very one she cannot bear to lose.

My Review:

I’ve always enjoyed anything that Kellie Coates Gilbert has written and this novel is no exception. This novel is a very emotional novel. Although, there are romantic elements to this novel that is not what is the driving force behind this book. This book’s main focus is all about making peace with an unresolved past. The story is well-written and fast paced with very well drawn out sympathetic characters. The struggle to balance family and work throughout this novel is realistically portrayed and will connect well with readers. I highly recommend this book!


I received this book free from the publisher through the Revell bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Happy Reading!
