A Billion Reasons Why by Kristin Billerbeck is an easy read. Christian romances often leave alot to be desired as far as plot and character development go. This book is not an exception. Shallow characters and a thin plot line make this book a very quick read. However, I did not hate, nor did I consider it a waste of my time. I believe most fiction books are read purely for enjoyment and not every book needs to be a literary marvel.
The New Orleans settings and a bit of family historical mystery add a little Cajun spice to the love story. While I could never give this book 5 stars, the love triangle of Katie, Dexter and Luc warrants more like three stars. This is a book that will whisk you away to another place and time. It will have you strolling through New Orleans and also hanging with the high society. I highly recommend it as a leisurely afternoon read or even better, a beach book. There are no heaving bosoms, just a nice, easily read love story. I think you will enjoy it...about 3 stars worth.
