My thoughts on Catching Hope

This was my first time reading a book by Kathy Cassel and I really enjoyed Catching Hope. It was a bit different than I was expecting (in only the best of ways), and she toughly drew me into the plights of her characters quickly. 

I loved the adventure and drama Kathy Cassel wove into this storyline. It was believable (although a bit imaginative at times), and her characters navigated it beautifully. Each character had a unique personality that was brought to the table and I so enjoyed getting to interact with them (hope fully there will be more books featuring them).  

I also enjoyed how Kathy Cassel dug into some interesting topics, and how she used the bonds of adoption as a backdrop for this story. It made it very interesting. This was a definite 4 star read for me and I hope to read more books in the future by Kathy Cassel. 

*I volunteered to read this book in return for my honest feedback. The thoughts and opinions expressed within are my own.
