    "Chasing Sunsets" spans all age-groups. Whether young or old, male or female the "Angels Walking" series unites its readers as well as the characters. "Chasing Sunsets" is a reminder that when we are in the midst of pain and not fully understanding our circumstances, we should turn to God not away from him.

    Chasing Sunsets

    Chasing Sunsets is the second book in Karen Kingsbury’s Angels Walking series, coming after Angels Walking. I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who hasn’t picked it up yet, but let’s just say you’re not going to be very happy with Karen after you finish this novel. Why? Because she leaves you hanging in the worst way and the third book—A Brush of Wings—doesn’t come out until November. Clearly that’s only six months, but that is a long time to wait since I must know what happens to these characters I have come to love. Today. Seriously though, I guarantee you’re going to love this book. Mary Catherine loves adventure. Swimming with dolphins, jumping from planes; if it makes her feel alive, whole, and connected with God, it’s for her. Having no desire to let life pass her by, she lives every day to the fullest, whether she’s out on an adventure or nearby serving others. While she’s never allowed herself to be open to love, she knows if she did, he would have to be real. So when she finds herself getting closer to Marcus—who shows her just how real he is—she can’t help but start to fall for him. Will she be able to keep her heart safe, or is she destined for an adventure unlike any she has ever known? Marcus Dillinger’s life has changed in ways he never could have imagined. When he challenged God to give him something to live for so he would know He was real months ago, he didn’t expect all that would happen, or that he would end up opening a youth center in the heart of one of the worst places—the home to two rivaling gangs. As he continues to grow in his newfound faith, he finds himself drawn to the beautiful and unique Mary Catherine. She is unlike any girl he has ever known, in the best of ways. He is sure that he could love her, if she’ll let him. Will he choose to pursue her, or will her rash decision change everything for the both of them? Doesn’t that sound like something you want to read? And not only does Chasing Sunsets get five bookshelves and have an ending that leaves you hanging, it is totally unpredictable! It has a never-saw-it-coming, makes-you-ready-for-November kind of finish that will leave you breathless, if you read it like I did. I read from chapter nine to the end—241 pages—in one sitting. That might be a little much for some people, but it was worth it. If you don’t want to read that much at once, try just the last 41 pages. All at once I mean. That’s where most of the unexpected things happen. No matter what, just get this book! If you don’t love it, it’s not my fault, cause it is AMAZING!

    Chasing Sunsets

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this series. I have always enjoyed Karen Kingsbury's books. However, in chapter 7 of this book she talks about Mary Catherine and her mother being on low carb diets. As a diabetes nurse for over ten years I would often caution clients not to let themselves go into ketoacidosis, or ketosis as this can be extremely harmful to the kidneys. Ketones in the urine suggests that the body is in ketoacidosis and ketones in the kidneys causes severe damage. We found that many teens would put their bodies in ketoacidosis as it causes weight loss and young girls always wanted to be thin. However, at the cost of kidney damage, long term, leading to dialysis is a hefty price to pay to remain thin. Anyone reading this in a book written by a trusted, well known author could certainly be misled. I would caution anyone, even those without diabetes, to really do their homework before commencing with this type of diet. Speak to your doctor, diabetes nurse educator, nutritionist, or anyone else knowledgeable in this area for information. The best way for long term weight loss is with a good exercise regime along with decreasing the amount of food in a well balanced meal plan. In other words, decrease your input and increase your output. Good healthy eating along with good healthy exercise is the best.
