I am amazed at the talented Bette Lee Crosby – #bookreviewer Salute

Cathleen on Goodreads says –

“Baby Girl” is Book 4 in the Memory House Collection and as Ophelia Browne is the only character from the other books in this series, that has a presence in “Baby Girl”.

“Baby Girl” is the story of Cheryl Ann Ferguson. Cheryl Ann, as the story opens, is a young woman on the verge of turning 15. On the day the new neighbors move in Cheryl Ann falls in love with the boy next door, or so she thinks. This is a story that pulls at your heartstrings as you read the flow of Cheryl Ann’s journey to adulthood. Her journey is sometimes full of happiness and joy, then at others is so traumatic and makes you wonder if this young woman can overcome some of the hardship she suffers. The author, Bette Lee Crosby with her usual style, brings to her fans and other readers a story that you feel very connected to. The character of Cheryl Ann feels so very real to you. “Baby Girl” brought me to tears, made me laugh, smile and the ending was the best!

If you have read the other book in this series “Baby Girl” is not a continuation but a new path to travel. For those who haven’t read any of the Memory House books this can be read as a stand-a-lone.

I started reading yesterday morning and finished it late last night and felt the need to let this story settle before I could sit down and write my review. I am amazed at the talented Bette Lee Crosby and her ability to continue to write warm and touching stories. I always feel so blessed to have spent time within the pages of a Crosby book.

I highly recommend “Baby Girl” and all the other titles by this author to anyone who needs a well written story to spend time with. “Tissues Not Included”

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
