Libby Overstreet can’t see herself as anything but shy and socially awkward. She’s nearing thirty, and she’s never even been on a date. Then she meets the man of her dreams, but Libby knows he would never be interested in a wallflower like her. All she wants to do is to buy that garden nursery on the outskirts of town and settle down with the life she has always dreamed ab Libby Overstreet can’t see herself as anything but shy and socially awkward. She’s nearing thirty, and she’s never even been on a date. Then she meets the man of her dreams, but Libby knows he would never be interested in a wallflower like her. All she wants to do is to buy that garden nursery on the outskirts of town and settle down with the life she has always dreamed about. Evan Carter has been watching the sweet woman in the coffee shop for weeks when his friend tells him that the object of his affection plans to buy a garden nursery and needs Evan’s expertise as an architect/contractor. When they meet, Libby is more enamored of Evan and even more convinced that he would never look at her as anything but a friend. However, that’s far from the truth. Evan would love to get to know the innocent beauty God has placed in this path. Trouble is, he fears that a lovely flower like Libby will wilt under the sins of his past, and he’ll do everything in his power to keep that from happening.

    Can I just say, I LOVE Libby? Fay Lamb has done an extraordinary job of writing about an adorably sweet, somewhat reserved young lady. Libby is your typical girl next door. She has a hard time believing she is attractive and works at proving she’s not. However, everyone she meets knows she’s a diamond in the rough and just needs a little help to push her into the lovely woman she is. I appreciate Libby’s love for the Lord and her relationship with Him. She endures so many sad situations, and yet s Can I just say, I LOVE Libby? Fay Lamb has done an extraordinary job of writing about an adorably sweet, somewhat reserved young lady. Libby is your typical girl next door. She has a hard time believing she is attractive and works at proving she’s not. However, everyone she meets knows she’s a diamond in the rough and just needs a little help to push her into the lovely woman she is. I appreciate Libby’s love for the Lord and her relationship with Him. She endures so many sad situations, and yet she’s there for all her friends when they need her, she also prays for them mightily when they think they don’t need her or her guidance in all things of faith. I laughed and cried when reading Libby. There are some circumstances in her past that broke my heart, as well as hers, and left her questioning her worth. Nonetheless, Fay Lamb was able to take these events and create a unique, loving person in Libby. Reading her story helped me to realize no matter how tragic or hurtful things in our past are, we can overcome. I received Libby from the author. However, I was under no obligation to write a review.

    Awesome reading Fay Lamb truly brings her characters to life and shows how to love the way God intends us to. I enjoy her writing and her obvious love for leading people to Christ with her stories

    I really love reading Fay Lamb's books. She puts more twists into her stories than are in a kindergartner's braids. In this one, a man and woman in love with each other misunderstand each other's statements over and over as only people with pronounced inferiority complexes can do. Libby Overstreet has spent several years being her helpless and very sick mother's sole caregiver. Her mother passes away, and Libby has little experience to enter the working world, let alone the dating world. She has I really love reading Fay Lamb's books. She puts more twists into her stories than are in a kindergartner's braids. In this one, a man and woman in love with each other misunderstand each other's statements over and over as only people with pronounced inferiority complexes can do. Libby Overstreet has spent several years being her helpless and very sick mother's sole caregiver. Her mother passes away, and Libby has little experience to enter the working world, let alone the dating world. She has an idea to build a garden center. Evan Carter has this eye for beauty--both in landscaping and in women. Libby catches his eye, but he can see she is such a sweet innocent. He has no business pushing himself into her life with his barely controlled temper and ugly background. Libby and Evan have mutual friends in Charisse and Gideon Tabor, but they are too much into matchmaking for either Libby's or Evan's comfort. Add to that mixture a woman who used to date Evan in his alcoholic days. Hope is determined to tear the couple apart and lure Evan back into the party scene. How in the world can this mess be untangled?

    As you peruse the cover of this book and wonder, rest assured that it brilliantly portrays its content. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better book cover. The Ties Than Bind series continues with book two. Libby, the heroine’s best friend from the novel Charisse, has recently buried her mother to whom she’d been a devoted caretaker for many years. Now, at thirty years of age, it was time for Libby to get on with her life.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better book cover. The Ties Than Bind series continues with book two. Libby, the heroine’s best friend from the novel Charisse, has recently buried her mother to whom she’d been a devoted caretaker for many years. Now, at thirty years of age, it was time for Libby to get on with her life. Had you told me Libby was a “romance” novel, I might not have bothered to read it. But since I know this author’s work, I knew it must contain substance and would definitely be worth the read. This book is so much more than your typical romance. It will touch the hearts of anyone who has ever thought of herself (or himself) "not good enough." An overtly Christian (but not preachy) novel, it is a story of character, faith, victory, and God’s grace. And I loved it. But then, as with all Fay Lamb's books, it’s "not your typical Christian fiction.”

    Each novel and short story by Ms. Lamb has been well-written, and LIBBY is no exception. This Christian romance is the second volume of a series, but the reader need not be familiar with the first book to enjoy this one. I wanted to read this story first because of the description of the main character. I believed I would relate strongly to her, and I did. The male lead character also touched my heart, due to his terrible childhood.

This Christian romance is the second volume of a series, but the reader need not be familiar with the first book to enjoy this one. I wanted to read this story first because of the description of the main character. I believed I would relate strongly to her, and I did. The male lead character also touched my heart, due to his terrible childhood. For readers without religious faith, it may be hard to understand how or why Christians trust God to lead them toward someone who will be the right person to share the rest of their lives with, as the main characters did. But it works, and in this story it made me want happiness for these individuals all the more. I now look forward to moving backward and reading the first book, Charisse.

    I really enjoyed Charisse, the first book in the series, and I enjoyed this one too. It's another wonderful Christian romance from this author with a story line and characters that keep you reading to see if they are going to learn to trust God with their lives and their relationship. I definitely look forward to reading more from this author. I really enjoyed Charisse, the first book in the series, and I enjoyed this one too.

    Libby is a likeable, sometimes frustrating character whose damaged self-esteem compromises her happiness. As I read, I quickly began to care about her and want her to fulfill her dreams. As Libby stumbles through romance and gets it wrong more than right, her faith is the strongest aspect of who she is. In the end, it's her faith that brings her the desires of her heart.
