Take One by Karen Kingsbury

Kingsbury is one of my absolute favorite authors. I have never read a book of hers that I did love. She is one of those authors who hook me in quickly and keep me wanting more. Her characters are so real life and so three dimensional. I honestly feel like I know them once I finish the book.

Take One is book one of her latest series ... Above The Line. 2 men... former missionaries with a new mission... have set out to set the world on fire with a passion for the Lord... through film.

Chase Ryan and Keith Ellison have started a small production company and are embarking on their first project.... The Last Letter being filmed on location in Bloomington, Indiana. Keith's daughter, Andi, is at college there and the shoot will give them opportunities to spent time together. God is in the mix and everything is running smooth... for a while. But then the world steps in... trouble with actors, temptations, lack of funding, technical difficulties and more put this project on shaky ground. Do Keith and Chase have the faith to hold on and to motivate others to do the same?

The fun part, for those who have read other Kingsbury works, is that old friends pop in throughout the book... the Baxters, Dayne and Katy, the Flannigans... this is not a continuation of earlier series, but we do get to peep in and see what is happening with them.

As always an excellent book!
