Review: It's a Love Story: From Happily to Ever After

Title:  It's a Love Story: From Happily to Ever After
Author: Lincee Ray
Publication Date: April 2019
Length: 208 pages

From the Back of the Book

We all love to be loved. And we love to fall in love.

As children, we pour our love into our pets and our friends. As teenagers, we fall in love with musicians and actors and the boy whose locker is next to ours. As we mature, we long for romantic love that will last a lifetime. Sacrificial love, unexplainable love, familial love, desperate love. Love songs and love stories. Clearly, we were created with the longing for love ingrained in our souls.

With lots of with and a bit of wisdom drawn from a lifetime of falling in love, Lincee Ray invites you to an unabashed celebration of that loving feeling. As she reveals the loves of her life and encourages you to recall your own, you'll discover alongside her that there is only One who can ever truly fulfill the deepest longings of our hearts. And He made us to be part of a divine love story.
My Thoughts

Reading this book makes me wish Lincee and I could be friends in real life! Lincee writes about different things she has "loved" throughout her life. Mostly the book is light-hearted and fun. 

One thread I liked throughout the book was Lincee saying it's okay to be who you are. I don't think that's something that we can hear often enough! She tells stories about her life where things didn't go exactly as she expected and she tells those stories with self deprecating humor which is enjoyable to read. 

Another thing I liked about this book is the scripture that is referenced here and there. I especially liked when Lincee referenced Psalm 73 and said that it gives her the assurance that she is enough. It doesn't matter if we are single, stay-at-home moms, or career women...God loves us for us!

I had never heard of Lincee before her previous book Why I Hate Green Beans which I absolutely loved! (Read my review of that book here.) I didn't like this book nearly as much as her previous book, however I still think it's a worthwhile read, especially if you are looking for something light. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
