A Billion Reasons Why, by Kristin Billerbeck

If you are looking to escape the bitter winter with some Christian romance fantasy Kristin Billerbeck's latest book as your name all over it.  "A Billion Reasons Why," follows your typical Christian chick-lit genre:  good Christian girl with sketchy past must decide between two Christian guys while getting advice from her good Christian friend.  And of course, let us not forget she must choose between a billionaire and an engineer. 

What makes this book a little different is the main characters spend most of their time in New Orleans, which always makes for interesting stories in any genre.  Billerbeck does a good job of making her characters likable so, at some level, you do feel sorry for the guy she rejects.  But not so sympathic you can’t be happy for the choice she makes in the end.  Occasionally, I did find it annoying that the main character did appear to be a push-over at times but what would chick-lit be without at least one push-over in the character mix.     

I read/review mostly non-fiction books but every once in a while a fiction makes it way into the mix simply for entertainment.  This book is not life changing; it did not make me want to better my life in any way what so ever.  However, it was a good, quick read on a winter day when I didn’t want to leave the house.

Thanks to Booksneeze for the complimentary copy of this book for reviewing purposes.
