  • Amazing Must Read series final book!

    This final book in the Cross Creek series, Crossing Hope, is freaking phenomenal! Kimberly Kincaid has surpassed my extremely high expectations by leaps and bounds! (I may have been majorly anticipating this book since finishing book 3 in the series, Crossing Promises). Mrs. Kincaid has an amazing way of writing and making you visualize the story, not just having it spit out and told to you. Her flow and choice of words are so incredible and so colorful that she draws the picture for you to imagine! The characters are so well developed and blended! As much as I didn’t want this series to end, Kimberly has done such a wonderful job of wrapping this series up and putting a bow on it for her readers. So Crossing Hope not only wraps up the Cross Creek series, it finally gives the only Cross sister….OH WAIT!!! Do NOT call her a “Cross”!!! She is a Rallston!!! So, yes, Marley Rallston gets her story and HEA! We learn right in the beginning of the book that Tobias’s only daughter (from a different mother than brothers Owen, Eli, and Hunter) secretly has a heart of gold. However, Marley also is very stubborn, very hard-headed, and very much wants to get the hell out of Millhaven, Virginia ASAP…she just needs to pay off a debt first. Then there is the delicious (but ALSO stubborn and negative) Greyson Whittaker, from Whittaker Hollow (the biggest competition to the Cross’s as far as farming goes). He just doesn’t know how not to park in a no-parking zone, or how to be nice as a general rule. He blames his attitude on his reputation that precedes him, partially due to his father, Jeremiah Whittaker. Greyson may be a grouchy-ass-bad-boy, but holy crap…the man has some amazing insight and deep, honorable thoughts and ideas! Wellllll…thanks to Judge Abernathy, these two opposing forces now are required to work hand-in-hand, performing community service, helping to repair the local animal shelter, and in the process, repairing themselves as well. The path they take and the trust they gain from one another grows throughout the story. There are so many memorable lines and phrases in this book that I stopped and read them again because I loved them so much! Then there are a few scenes I LOVED (hopefully without spoilers) … *The jail *The courtroom *Breakfast with Cate *When Greyson busts Marley placing the groceries on the porch *Their first kiss “She wasn’t just hungry. She was starving.” *The Farmer’s Market, the emotions involving Tobias , Marley and Greyson’s talk, Greyson visiting the Cross tent *The Water tower *Marley and Tobias’s talks *The Peach Orchard *The visit by Sheriff Atlee in the field ;) *Marley’s come-to-Jesus meeting with her brothers *Marley’s jumping to conclusions and actions and the conversation of the men, Cate, Scarlett and Emerson and then the resolution *Greyson’s talk with his father *Greyson and Marley’s talk ***And last but not least…the epilogue!!! **Oh…and I cannot forget the explicit, juicy sex scenes!!!** Honestly, this whole book was sensational, from the dedication and acknowledgements, to the epilogue. It is DEFINITELY a MUST-READ, and even though it is kind of a stand-alone…nah, you need to just read the first 3 (Crossing Hearts-Hunter, Crossing the Line-Eli, Crossing Promises-Owen) before indulging!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Love the Cross Family

    Once again Kimberly Kincaid has out done herself with the Cross family. It's sad to say goodbye to this family but what a finale!! I could not wait to read Marley's story after her surprise arrival to the Cross family. Marley is only here for her mother's last wish, to meet her father. Not planning on staying until she meets bad boy, rival to the Cross family, Greyson. What a match they are!! Did not expect this match at all, but it was perfect!! Loved how protective the Cross brothers are over Marley. This is book that will have you with many emotions and shedding a few happy tears at the end. Like I said it is sad to say good bye to the Cross family, but what a finale it was. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the series!!

  • A Must Read

    WOW!! I do mean WOW!! I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book!!! Kimberly Kincaid once again burns up the pages with Crossing Hope, the fourth book in her Cross Creek series. Marley never expected to still be in Millhaven at Cross Creek and definitely did not want to be part of the Cross family. Marley is a strong, take charge person who could take care of herself; she didn’t need anyone. Marley and Greyson being forced to work with together, taking caring of stray animals, gives them the opportunity to open up to each other, learn to trust each other, build a friendship, and maybe more. How would this ever work? She was a Cross and he a Whittaker, two highly competitive families that didn’t get along. Yet, when Marley learns some information about the family that she is starting to open up to, she gets scared and runs for the hills. It will take the Cross boys to bring Marley home where she belongs, and it will take the entire family to help her convince Greyson that her running days are over and that she is right where she belongs, in Millhaven and with him. It is very difficult not to love Marley and Greyson. Greyson standing up to his father to defend her and Marley threatening her brother if they lay one finger on Greyson was absolutely amazing. The conversation between the Cross boys, Tobias and Marley had me in tears. The love that was between the Cross family, the love between Greyson and Marley was evident on every single page of this book. These two are so much alike it is almost scary; wanting so badly to belong, to be heard, scared of what will happen if they do. The fact they each trusted the other to be there, to catch them, to have them is a testament to the love that they had for one another. I totally loved reading this book. Ms. Kincaid did a fantastic job creating her characters, making them realistic, keeping the story interesting, making me forget the world around me and not letting me go until I turned the last page, wanting more. Ms. Kincaid kept this reader mesmerized with the need to see how Marley and Greyson would find their happy ever after. I highly recommend this book to other readers.

  • Not enough words to describe the awesomeness!

    HOLY CRAP! Let’s see what can I possibly say to do this story justice? It was just too good for words, but I will try. This is the 4th book in the Cross Creak series but can be read as a standalone. However, as I quickly realized reading this one piqued my interest in the Cross boys and I needed to read the rest. Kimberly brings us a Forbidden Lovers story that is so fun to read. You have two strong willed characters that think they know what they want and determined to keep things the same. HA! Just as the saying goes We Plan… Marley Rallston is our headstrong heroin who thinks she can keep her head down long enough to get out of the small town she has found herself in. She’s a city girl stuck in a country town, I personally would love this town, but she doesn’t! Having everyone know her business is not something she is fond of. Greyson Whittaker has a reputation for being just like his grumpy, mean-spirited father. He tried to prove people wrong but when in a small town this task is not an easy one. He decided to let people think what they want and, in some ways, feeds the rumors. He has an age-old rival with Marley’s brothers. He is forcing himself NOT to feel the attraction between them because there is no way he can possibly like anyone from ‘that family’. However, when they are forced to spend time together they both are forced to see that reputations are not always what they seem. They chemistry is HOT, the banter even Hotter. Kimberly writes these two perfectly and I recommend you read this one right away!! It is on the Goodreads highly anticipated Fall reads for a reason! I was given an ARC by the author to give an honest opinion and you have just read it. So, grab your copy of this fantastic book now and curl up in your spot to read!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Fitting Farewell to Cross Creek

    Knowing that this was going to be the last of the Cross Creek stories, I approached reading it with very mixed feelings. I love Kimberly Kincaid's stories and have been a fan of the Cross Creek boys since the very first book in the series. I had no doubt I'd love Marley's story, but I wasn't looking forward to saying goodbye ... and I hated the idea of pairing her with Greyson Whittaker. No, let me rephrase that. I just plain hated Greyson Whittaker. He's been the bane of the Cross family from the first time he was introduced into the Millhaven saga. Turns out I was wrong about Greyson, but not about loving the book. Kincaid has outdone herself in this one. It tied up all the loose ends with a story about family relationships and small town expectations that made me laugh and cry and think about my own family and then left me with a warm and fuzzy hopeful feeling, knowing that the Cross Creek and Millhaven are in good hands for the next generation. I'm still sad that this is the last Cross Creek story but I wouldn't have missed this read for all the peaches at Whittaker Hollow.

    Thanks for your feedback!
