Read with Audra Blog Tour: Summer Plans and Other Disasters by Karin Berry

About the Book: 

Elementary school music teacher Callie Stevens thinks she’s finally figured out God’s plan for her life—she even made a list to keep her on track.

Moving in with her brother and reconnecting with her ex-boyfriend are at the top of the list. What’s not on the list is running into her childhood crush, Ryan. God wanted her to connect with Kyle, right?

Trying to figure out God’s plan is hard enough. But a dating-averse older brother, the young blonde who adores him, a pregnant best friend, and Callie’s continual mishaps make her wonder whether her best laid plans were truly God-inspired. 

Now available at Elk Lake Publishing!

About the Author: 

Karin wrote her first novel in 2007 to cope with her husband’s cancer diagnosis (no worries – he’s cancer free now!). With the support and encouragement of her family, she submitted that manuscript. That particular manuscript has not been published yet, but Summer Plans and Other Disasters, her first published book, releases in September 2018.

Karin writes contemporary and speculative fiction stories with a healthy dose of romance, but she’s also expanded her repertoire: she writes feature stories for the local paper, copy material for businesses, and blog posts for herself and others. She even edits (offering copy editing, fiction editing, and critiques through Write Now Editing Services) and teaches (she’s the Substantive Fiction Editing instructor for the PEN Institute and can be found around the country teaching writing and editing courses at conferences and at her local college).

When Karin’s not reading, writing, or editing, she enjoys cooking and baking. She plays the piano and sings (the key of E, please). She kayaks with her husband in the summer, watches football in the fall (Go Blue!), and enjoys Christmas lights all winter long. Shy but extroverted, Karin adores her nieces and nephew and loves spending time with her family.  Learn more about Karin at:

My Thoughts and Review:

Summer Plans and Other Disasters is a book that turns out to be more then it first seems. I began reading the book expecting a Romance with Values book, but it also has lots of comedy in it. I enjoyed the Romantic Comedy aspect of the book.

The storyline also shows Callie going back to her hometown for a Romantic interest, her ex-boyfriend. As the days go by, Callie finds herself having interest in someone else, her brother's best friend Ryan. Callie seeks to find out if the feelings are mutual.

The main take away from this book and storyline for me was "God is in Control" always. Our best plans are not always the plan God has in store for us and as we seek him, his plans become more obvious!

Great combination of Romance and Comedy!

Book Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
