Four Stars and a half For some reason, some people might not like this book I ll be honest and say I won t understand how you cannot likeNorah s ArkorMillion Dollar Dilemma , but I ll leave you with your opinion as long as you respect mine for a case when I don t enjoy one of your favorite books Deal This book is a favorite of mine purely because of two things 1 Norah s love for her dog The cover says, Love Me, Love My Dog and that is something I completely agree with Norah is a huge understatement animal lover and it shows in her peacemaking heart 2 Norah s faith is like Cassia s inMillion Dollar Dilemmaand it truly inspires me to be a better Christian in my knowledge of Scriptures and also how I show my faith towards others I love the thought Norah has at one point in this novel,My grandmother said I might be the only sermon someone like Lilly ever hears That should keep me on my toes The romance side of this book putting in as it really is light and while Norah would love to hear bells when she meets the right man God has for her, her faith and love for animals is the main plot, I would say might seem strange to some due to the three eligible bachelors in Norah s life, but, trust me when I say, it all works out and I never thought anything was cheesy or forced feeling I cannot share in words how muchMillion Dollar DilemmaandNorah s Arkhave encouraged me in my personal life, but also just the giddiness I feel when I read these two books reminds me why I enjoy reading Link to review BFCG may Read the review to see recommend this book by this author It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author

    I enjoy most of Judy Baer s books they are nice, light hearted reads Nothing deep or heavy, but yet, you don t feel like you are totally indulging in brain candy like Lori Wick s books, for example This was a cute story, that even though it involved animals, etc I was able to enjoy I am not an animals person..

    I just picked this up because of the dog on the cover If I had realized it was a religious book I wouldn t have started reading it The plot was pretty predictable, I figured most of it out before it happened the characters are interesting and well developed I just could have done without the religious aspect.
