This is a great read!

This book is part of a series that is fantastic! I love everyone of these books.

I'll miss the Baxters! So sad it's ending.

First of all, all of Karen kingsbury books are amazing. I have almost every single one, they move me to tears and really touch me. Her books are for so many audiences, I'm 21 and in college and am hooked. I even got my fiance reading her stories! I was bittersweet about Sunset. Devastated to have the series end, but also happy at the way things turned out for all the characters. This book ties up all the loose hands in a great way. I was happy at how the ending turned out for each and every one of the characters I've come to know and love. They all got an ending they deserved. This books takes a close look at marriage as well in many aspects. I enjoyed the focus on Luke and Regean's relationship and deteriorating marriage because it's so true of what happens today in society. When we do handle things right away and let things build up and grow inside of us...it's bound to catch up. For Luke and Reagan it does, but thankfully everything works out for them. As a college student who reads I felt I could relate to them. Anyway, Sunset is a great ending to the series. I finished it in a day. I only hope that Kingsbury will further explore Cody and Bailey's possible relationship. - also, what happened with Ashley was predictable. But i was still happy.

Emotionally gripping

I have to admit, this book was the first Karen Kingsbury book I've ever read. And BOY, now I know why she's a bestselling author! She writes with so much emotion, with so many emotionally vibrant pictures, with such exquisite word choices! I was crying left and right--and I enjoyed it! Very uplifting, hopeful book. It shows God's grace and love practiced by fallen Christians during trying periods of life, through hard choices. There are a LOT of characters in this book, and since I haven't followed the Baxter series, I was a bit confused at times and couldn't always remember who was who. But she does a good job giving subtle hints so I could figure it out within a few paragraphs. People who have followed the Baxters will find it a very satisfying ending, pulling lots of story threads full circle. I thought she did a good job, considering how many characters and stories were involved in the series. Overall, a very entertaining book, hard to put down. Kingsbury fans will love it, and it made a new Kingsbury fan out of me!

Final book in Baxter series is powerful

Sunset by Karen Kingsbury is the final book in the Baxter series, tying up ongoing story lines and giving a kick-off for a new series in which the Baxters will be in the background. There are many storylines in this book, but most of them revolve around the family patriarch, John, selling the family home and remarrying. I was thoroughly impressed with how Kingbury manages to give just enough character history to make new readers feel comfortable without overwhelming previous readers. I was a new reader to this series, but after reading Sunset, even knowing how everything turns out, I absolutely can't wait to read the rest of the series. Kingsbury puts Christians into tough situations to show how God can work even in the darkest nights. One couple is struggling through adultery, another is facing a possibly dangerous pregnancy, another is still working through past trauma. In each, the love of and for God is shown beautifully. This is a family you want to be part of for life!

Sunset is beautiful!

With the support of their faith and family, Sunset details the trails and tribulations of a family who has lost their mother/wife. With a heavy heart John Baxter realizes that he must sell the family home. The home where with his wife they raised their children and had many happy memories. John asks each of his children if they would like to buy the house but they all decline the offer for various reasons. I don't want to say too much and give away any parts of the story. But I will say that there are a lot of twists and turns in the story to keep it interesting. My regret is that this is the first book of the Baxter family series that I have read. Now I need to go back to the very first story. I look forward to it.

A Wonderful Windup to the Baxter Saga

This is the 14th book that Karen Kingsbury has written in which have the Baxter clan in them. I suggest starting with the first novel reading them all. If I could title this book any other name it would be Forgiveness. Kari has to deal with forgiving someone from her past and helping that person heal. To fully understand Kari's story you have to start reading from the beginning although Karen does offer a Cliff notes version of what happened. Also, Luke and Reagon have to deal with forgiving her other from the incident that started all their problems. There are some nice unexpected surprises that happen to one of the Baxter siblings at the end of the book. Often I am tempted to flip to the back of the book and read the last few pages. Don't do that. It will ruin the twists and surprises. You will not regret reading this book. I am thrilled to hear that this is not the last we will hear from the Baxters. She is writing a new series of books about a different family who will be moving to Bloomington, the town where the Baxters live which means we will get updates on what is happening in thier lives. You won't regret reading this novel if you have come to love the Baxters like they were real people.
