Our review of Hale Maree... 
So I absolutely fell in love with Misty Provencher when I read her Cornerstone Series. She is totally awesome was so excited when she started venturing out of the limitations of YA. Hale Maree is seriously awesome.  I could not wait to read it and I read it so fast and adored it.

So Hale, awesome name right? I swear Misty is so creative when it comes to naming her characters. Anyways, Hale lives with her alcoholic father, just graduated…high school, has an awesome best friend named Sher, not a perfect life but she’s ok. That is until her dad comes home drunk with a friend. Usually she just escapes to her room, but this time she over hears the conversation between her dad and his friend. A conversation that has her completely freaked out. I mean if your dad just agreed to have you married to his friend’s son, you would be creeped out too right? Who does that these days, I mean come on. Totally against the idea, she decides she’s going to refuse it as much as she can. She meet’s the guy when they drive to his house to pick him up to pass out flyers, and the guy, Oscar, is HOTT and moves like smoke. Is she going to be able to resist him?

Oscar is helping his dad’s friend and the friend’s daughter pass out flyers for the new landscaping company they established. He has no clue what is going on just yet. So he talks to Hale tells her she’s pretty and that he has a girlfriend. He calls Hale later that night to invite her for some coffee, when Hale talks about his loyalty to his girlfriend his reply is genious, “I am,” he sighs,”but if you are going to be my wife, I guess that trumps and loyalty I have to a girlfriend, now doesn’t it?” I seriously love Oscar, he’s smart, sexy, and perfect in his imperfectness. That gets her to meet him, and when she arrives home, Oscar being a gentleman walks her to the door.

Hale opens the door to find a drunk father and her stuff packed. Yelling occurs and a broken bottle of whiskey later, Hale is getting back in the truck with Oscar. Oscar grabs some clothes from his house and they head to his beach house.  Is it possible to turn a crappy situation around? Can Hale give Oscar a chance and getting to know her and letting him in? Can love be formed in a matter of a week? Well you are going to have to read to see if Oscar and Hale make their arranged marriage mean more than that. 

I love Misty Provencher 's Keystone series and was PUMPED to Read Hale Maree after she described it on twitter. My super awesome friend and blogger partner Dani bought it for me.  I was glad she did!  

Hale and her dad are so poor. They live in the poor part of town and scrape by.  One night Hale is cooking dinner when her dad comes home drunk with a friend.  She feeds them and leaves.  She is actually scared how they are talking because her dad says...... that ........ He agrees to marry her off to this guys son Oscar.  It's like they have set it all up!  Hale is MORTIFIED! She does not want this to happen!  Her friend Sher wants to help her get away, but Hale decides to stick with it. 

Helping her dad put out flyers for the lawn business Hale gets to meet Oscar.  She is not sure she likes him. But he is super cute.  Oscar invites her out for coffee to try to get to know her.  This leads to Hale freaking out, and Oscar is so patient.  When she gets home what awaits her? Her dad has packed her things and Sends her to live with Oscar.  She FREAKS!

What happens when Hale spends a WEEK with Oscar? What is the Real thing that has this marriage by force set up! And Can Two People Fall in love in one week despite ALL these odds that are against them?  

READ!! And I will tell you, you will FALL in LOVE with OSCAR. WOW what a cutie! So patient, kind and wonderfully loving.  Do they sell guys like him at the store? Really? Great Job Misty!  

   Our review of Full of Grace... 
I was so excited to hear that Landon was going to get his own story, however I didn’t think it was going to be like this! I had the idea that Sher, Hale’s best friend, was going to play an important part and I knew it was going to be awesome. I was completely blown away by the turn out of the book. It’s no secret that Landon was my favorite, even from Hale Maree. There was just something about Landon that stuck with me and had me begging the author to give him his own book. Especially after having to put up with the psycho ex-girlfriend.

Misty always captures my attention from the beginning of the book, but like Landon I have to admit Sher’s giggling got on my nerves. Also like Landon I had to remind myself that she’s an 18 year old girl with a crush on the epically hot boy. Yup, Landon you’re hot, you know this from our last interview :) haha

Ok so a little bit about the book yea? Well I hate spoilers so I’m not going to elaborate much because, well, I’ll give away spoilers and we don’t want that.  Landon meets Sher at Oscar’s and Hale’s wedding. Close to being 10 bananas, maybe slightly more, one night in the pool house turns into something much more. First times are supposed to be remembered and boy do they remember that night. But just when things start looking up for Landon, beautiful girl, fatherhood on his mind, and deadest on changing Sher’s mind about “getting rid” of the baby, the other shoe drops. What’s the news that Sher has been keeping from Landon? Will Landon stick by even after the news is out? Can he be the bigger man even if the news doesn’t sway his way?

“It would be such a mistake, Sher, to deprive the world of another you.”

All these questions will be answered and trust me when I say you are going to LOVE Landon more than you did before after this book. There is one certain thing that I absolutely LOVED and I mean LOVED about the way Misty wrote Landon, it involves letters he writes to someone. Those touched my heart and will always have me saying Landon is just as swoon worthy as any other guy, if not more! So good job Misty, I love Landon more now than I did before. Which is crazy because I loved him uber hard already.

Loving Misty Provencher and Having devoured Hale Maree, I was excited to Jump into Full of Grace. I wanted to see what Landon would be up too. Sadly I had a slow start but then took a day and dove in. LOVED the story. Landon is a great guy that Misty Created! I was however, annoyed by Sher. Once I understood her a bit more I was okay with her. 
The book starts where Hale Maree left off, at Oscar and Hale's wedding. Landon and Sher are wedding attendants and paired together. There's, attraction, alcohol and both are a few bananas gone. (Landon's term) With attraction high it's inevitable that Landon and Sher indulge in each other. Sher's first time. After that things are awkward. Landon is one stand up guy, trying to get back with her. Sher does not make things easy... And that is where I got annoyed with her. She is one tough cookie.  What happens in that 4 weeks time that throws Landon and Sher together? It's a lesson in trust, and maturity. I love that Landon's last name is Grace. To me he has A LOT of that for others. Especially Sher. Sweet book! Loved the ending I cried! Thanks Misty! 

~ About Misty ~
Misty Provencher is a long-term wife, mama, and author. The first two are a bit more recent, but Provencher's writing roots date back to the hieroglyphics she left in her mother's womb.

While Provencher can ride a motorcycle, knows how to Karate chop, and has learned enough French, Spanish, and Sign Language to get herself slapped, Misty's life is actually just the ruse she uses to connect with people. She is totally enchanted with them and spends her days trying to translate the soul bouquets of her muses into words.

Misty Provencher lives in the Mitten.
