My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I shouldn’t be surprised by Deborah Garland and her beautiful way with words. I have come to appreciate all that she has offered with her Darling Cove series, and A Must for Christmas definitely added to the beauty of the characters.

I loved going back and seeing both Faith and Greg, although their journey has been a little bit stressful. But, I’m glad and content with the way that she wrote this novella. This was a definite 4 Star Book for me.

Must Be Crazy (Darling Cove Book 3) by Deborah Garland ~ Review by Liz Vrchota

Must Be CrazyMust Be Crazy by Deborah Garland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Must Be Crazy is the third book in the Darling Cove series from Deborah Garland. I personally would recommend that you read the first two books before you read this one, they do go in a pretty decent order and the characters are involved in each book somewhat. This one focuses on Skye Mallory. Her connection is that she is Gwen and Greg’s sister who have books one and two which would be the benefit to reading them.

Skye is single yet successful. As an attorney she rocks it and runs her very own office. Unfortunately when it comes to love she has not had the best of luck, especially with her last relationship that ended in a brutal way. However, both of her siblings have found the loves of their lives and she knows it is a matter of time before those around her start nagging her to find her own happily ever after. She is doubtful that she will ever change her mind though, especially with the secret she is harboring. All that is about to be put into question when her office and apartment catch fire and a hunky fireman extinguishes the fire, and lights the spark insider her again.

Edward Mendelsohn is that firefighter. He has his own demons and secrets he will need to get around but the beautiful Skye is something he wants to try to get over all that for. He is that single father of an adorable seven year old kiddo, Julian, and still recovering from a tough spilt from his mother. Just when he thinks he is finally at a point where he can move on with Skye and these two hit it off the past comes back to meddle in their newfound romance. Then there is a matter of secrets that come out to play. What will happen to the new love? Is it going to be extinguished before it ever gets a chance to become a full-fledged fire?

A Must for Christmas : A Darling Cove Novella
By Deborah Garland
5/5 Stars

Deborah Garland has done it yet again! This is a beautiful story about love and hope.. a love so profound and deep, it makes you envious! And to top it off, it’s a Christmas story. Who in the world doesn’t love one of those ??
I do think Greg and Faith are my favorite couple of the entire series. I’m not exactly sure why… but I think maybe because they have such an intense love for one another. They’ve known from a young age, that they belong together. But yet didn’t give up on that love, even when life threw them curveballs and tore them apart. Sometimes, love is worth waiting for!!
Faith’s pregnancy doesn’t go as planned … it never does, when carrying two precious baby boys. Early labor and complications make life chaotic and scary. Will they get the Christmas miracle they so desperately deserve?
Dang it, Deborah… this story made me so emotional!! I love a wonderful love story!! And to top it off… a Christmas love story!! Love love love!! Outstanding job!! I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next !!

Please say this is not the end of the Darling Cove stories…I have grown to love these people so much and I don’t want this to end. Someone else kind of came into the picture a little stronger in this book and I would love to see her get her own story, maybe there’s a long lost Mallory cousin out there somewhere..LOL or maybe Dad deserves a story…

This book took my breath away, there were a few parts that scared me to death thinking oh my goodness no this can’t happen. I loved returning to Faith and Greg even though it was full of scary moments and a lot of secrets that threatened everything these two fought so hard for. The way this family pulls together was so heart warming and that is one of my favorite parts of these books.

This author has quickly become one of my favorites and I will be following her from here on and will be one clicking whatever I can get my hands on.

Thank you Miss Garland for a beautifully written series with some amazing characters and please don’t let this be the end!! I already want to reread all of them!

Loved It!!

5 Stars

I love this series, everything about it, the people, the town, the family, the friends, the writing and the way everything just flows. It is completely awesome!!

Now with all that said I can concentrate on just this book…I’m not sure how to put into words what I loved most about this story. The storyline for me was completely unexpected..It did not go the way I thought it would. Miss Garland never gave in on the good guy maybe being in the wrong, and Skye being put right in the middle of everything and standing by what was right even when her heart was telling her not to. That’s still not explaining it the way it should be explained so you will have to read the book to understand.

I wasn’t crazy about Skye in earlier books but I always had a feeling there was more to her and I was right. Her story was so sad and her not wanting to burden her family with it about broke my heart. There were scenes in this book that I felt deep, some made me cry and others just took my breath away. I think I felt every emotion that was written or implied in this story and then some that weren’t so I was a mess throughout most of it.

I can’t recommend this story enough, but do not just read this book, truly and honestly to get the full effect of this family and these people you have to read them all in order.

Loved loved loved it and can not wait to read the next which is already open on my kindle.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have come to find out that I really enjoy Deborah Garland’s books. I got the opportunity to read Must Be Crazy in the Darling Cove Series. I have fallen in love over and over with the characters that Deborah has created. I love the feeling that I get when I immerse myself in her world, a world that was well developed.

I can’t say that I was surprised to enjoy Edward and Skye’s book – I loved seeing their story and relationship grow. Their trials is what makes this story a wonderful one. I honestly can’t wait to see what she does with this series, and where it goes. This was definitely a 4 Star Book for me!

A Must for Christmas: A Darling Cove Novella
By Deborah Garland
Rated 5 stars

This is a story filled with characters about strong family ties. It also gives me a feeling of the love between not only the main characters but also the whole family. It’s nice to see Greg and Faith again. She is pregnant with twins and they have just come back from Skye and Edwards wedding. Then all heck breaks loose. Can they recover together or will they lose faith?

I loved seeing all the characters from the previous books in here. This family has such an amazing bond between them. Each has had a disconnect for a bit but they have all come back. When there are times of need? They all cover for each other. The guys…well their bonding has its fun times. They girls….give good advice. I particularly liked the relationship Greg has always had with his Dad. This one shows so much of that love between them and (hopefully Greg can carry that forward.

This story made me a little emotional at times. I also chuckled a few. Hopefully this isn’t the last in the series but maybe Lily can get a story now and we can still touch base with a few of these wonderful characters!

If you have read the previous series you will enjoy this. If you have not read the series you will enjoy it as well but maybe not have such a deep understanding of the characters. Either way it a great read!

I have really enjoyed this series so was really excited to find this new Christmas novella featuring some of my favourite characters! I loved Greg and Faith so couldn’t wait to read more about them. I love Christmas stories so I knew that I was going to love this one and I absolutely did! It was a really well written novella that I would quite happily have read a full length version of (mainly because I love this author and her amazing characters!) I loved that it was so much more than the sweet Christmas read I anticipated it to be, it had some great twists and turns in it and some very emotional moments. Ms Garland never fails to drag me into her stories and the lives of her characters with ease and this book was no exception. I would recommend the other books in the series are read as well so you can fully appreciate the back story of the main characters!
I loved A Must for Christmas and I look forward to more from this author again in the future!

By Deborah Garland
5/5 Stars

I truly can not say enough wonderful things about this series!! If you’re a sucker , ( like myself ) for a romantic love story with a happily ever after… this book ( and series ) is for you!!
Being a single mother, I do have a soft spot for single parents! Especially single father’s … wow, I’m not sure what it is.. but it’s a weakness of mine!! I absolutely looooove a romance love story, with a few twists and turns. Trust me, once you start reading this book… you will NOT be able to put it down!!
Sky and Edward meet in an unconventional way… but immediately sparks fly. Is their love worth fighting for? You gotta read this book to find out!! You won’t be disappointed at all!! Another outstanding job, Deborah! I can’t wait to see what’s next!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Must For Christmas: A Darling Cove Novella by Deborah Garland is yet another wonderful addition to the stories of the Mallory’s. Deborah has written another beautiful but heart wrenching novella with A Must For Christmas. I am in love with the characters from this series and feel personally invested in each and every one of them. So if they hurt, I hurt. If they are sad I am sad and let me tell you there were plenty of times I had a good sob. However, there were also some moments that were pure joy.

Faith and Greg have been through so much to get where they are today, but could all be lost in the blink of an eye? Fear like they have never known is now front and center, with no time for second guessing. Now because of two little men their lives are forever changed.

Deborah’s stories are so vivid and rich and I am always happy to read her work. It is effortless and written with love. Her stories should not be missed.
