She loves her business, but her maternal instincts are strong and her biological clock is ticking. In the meantime has decided to take in foster children.

    2. Terri Hays runs a day care center, the most popular day care in Valley View, Oklahoma, at that. So why does she want the hassle of becoming a foster parent?She's pushing thirty really hard, and she has no children of her own. No husband, and none on the horizon. Although she already has a wedding dress and a guy in mind--if Steve would only change his attitude about not wanting more kids. But he already has three daughters and a granddaughter, products of a failed marriage, and he seems to think [...]

    3. This was a very enjoyable book. The author did a good job with the interactions between characters. This is not the first book in this series, but it was very easy to read this book without having read the one before it. The author covers the sensitive issue of the foster care system well, highlighting a positive experience in this book while acknowledging some past hurtful experience with the system by one of the characters. The characters were well written and their growing relationship was ve [...]

    4. Such a charming, enchanting story. This is the first book I've read by this author and I loved it. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. I loved the story of Steve and Terri, their friends and family. I also enjoyed the foster parent twist. I received a copy of this book via bookfun in exchange for my honest review.

    5. OkayTHIS is good Christian fiction.I didn't look to see if "Terri" was a part of a series by Sheron Srock. Pffft now that I look at the title I see that it is part of "The Women of the Valleyview" series. But it didn't feel like it starting in the middle of a story like serial novels sometimes do. Also, sometimes books in a series will have open endings, in order to get you to read the next one. This one didn't. It was a complete story and ended very well. And by "very well" I mean one of the be [...]

    6. Sweet, clean, Christian romanceGreat romance. The characters worked so well together. I loved Terri's relationship with Steve and with Sam and Iris. This is the first of the series that I've read. The author died a great job filling in the holes so I knew the history that I needed, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the others. There is a lot of Gospel and scripture and God. I enjoy that, so it was a plus for me

    11. A Heartwarming Read!Terri is book two in the Women of Valley View Series. After reading Callie, book one, I didn't think book two could be as good. I was wrong.

    13. This is my first book to read by Ms. Srock but I will certainly be looking for the others in the series! I thoroughly enjoyed reading Terri and it held my attention until the very end. I received a free copy of the ebook version from bookfun, and while there were a few glitches in the editing for it, I am sure they were corrected by time the print version released. I love the cover and wish I had seen it before I read to get a picture of the characters in my mind.Terri Hayes is a wonderful, big- [...]

    14. This was a very endearing story about Terri (who is 30), who very much wants to have a family of her own. She has even gone so far as to purchase her wedding dress and keeps it in her closet. Talk about being prepared. Anyway, things haven't worked out the way she would have liked so besides running her daycare business, she decides to become a foster parent. The little girl she gets is so cute but she comes from a couple of parents who are very young and have lost their way and are in a bit of [...]

    15. This series is set around four friends and their friendship. The first book introduced Callie and the women of Valley View while this book picks up with Terri, a single owner of a day care center and new foster mother, but you'll connect with all the friends again. This author writes multiple characters well, and I was never confused at any point in the book with how many characters were on scene at any given time.I thoroughly enjoyed the pacing of the story line and the conflicts, including the [...]

    16. Terri is a delightful story, the second book in Women of Valley View. The humor is great and the author had me bursting into laughter several times. The romance is delectable and I found myself sighing and rereading the sweet romance scenes between Terri and Steve. The storyline is so interesting, dealing with being a foster parent, and seeing the other side of the problem. The author doesn’t portray the parents whose child is taken away as bad people, but someone who needs help. This is just [...]

    17. I received this book from bookfun in exchange for my honest opinion. Sharon has hit the mark again! I couldn't put it down! She pulls us into the lives of each character. Their struggles may be different yet the same to our own as we have lived life. It causes us to seek to improve our relationship with our Heavenly Father and also reinforces that we never walk alone nor fall too far to be picked back up by His Hands. It also humbles us to realize that we can never truly empathize with others un [...]

    18. This is the first book I have read by Sharon Srock and I really enjoyed it. Terri is a heartwarming story centering around a woman who is approaching 30 and desiring a husband and children to call her own. As Terri begins to believe her friend Steve may be her happily ever, she soon realizes their dreams for the future may not be compatible. Terri becomes a foster mom to an adorable little girl and Steve steps in to help out-and here the fun begins.The author does a wonderful job with character [...]

    19. I loved this book about foster care because I have great memories of my parents taking in foster children. Terri loves children and enters foster care to make a difference in the lives of children even though she already runs a day care business. When she needs a place to live, Steve provides a basement apartment for her. His daughters and grandson add a lot of fun to the romance of the story. I was drawn into the story and could hardly stop reading. I even felt sorry for the parents of the fost [...]

    20. What a wonderful story! Ms. Srock made me laugh and cry, and brought a smile to my face with the final words even though I was sad to be finished.Terri and Steve are both wonderful characters, people I would love to have in my own circle of friends. We all really need a Steve in our lives, someone who knows when to speak the hard truths. And I think we all have a bit of Terri in us - fearing how hard it is to hear those truths. I love the way these two interact and their lives weave together.The [...]

    21. I had a hard time putting this book down. It was very good, and wholesome to read. Terri was a very normal woman, and it was easy to feel what she felt. I truly enjoyed reading about a family coming together and caring for people the way Steve and Terri did. The author did a great job with the way she portrayed this story. I can't wait to read more by this author.I received this book for free in exchange for my review on bookfun. I give it 5 stars !!!!I also posted my review on BarnesandNoble, c [...]

    22. This is the first book I read by this author but it will certainly not be my last. I have seen the good and bad sides of the foster care system from a medical standpoint.This book is very realistic in it's description of the emotional ups and downs the families and foster families goes through. There are so many wonderful foster care families. Thank you for the easy to read, funny at times, and loving in Christ story. I received a copy of the book from bookfun to read and review. Reviews posted [...]

    23. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Sharon Srock has a real talent for telling a sweet, engaging page-turning story. The challenges Ella and Sean faced are real today for far too many people, and Srock had me twisting my hair wondering and hoping. I, like his many fans, love Steve. Great male lead. He's flawed, but soooooo appealing. And Terri is your best friend from the start. I won this book and was more than pleasantly surprised. I'm ordering the first book today, and will eager await the third!

    24. I received the book for free through First Reads. I was plesantly pleased by the characters and the storyline. It was so true-to-life right now. I know many christians though, and have never met anyone like the characters. They are almost too good to be true. I know they have their faults, so that makes them more realistic. My favorite part was when the "plan" the girls had turned on them in the end was awesome! Now I'll have to read the other books to catch up everythinga very good book!

    26. Terri is a amazing young woman. Watching her and Steve’s friendship change is truly remarkable. The way Terri and Steve helps Kelsey’s parents is wonderful. The author will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next. You will feel God working throughout this whole book. I had the honor to review this book for the author for a honest review. This book deserves a higher rating than a five star review.

    27. Predictable story but a delightful read nevertheless. Terri an a mid 30's woman meets Steve. They date, and naturally have a few crossed issues during which Terri has become a foster mom to a cute 3 year old little girl called Kelsey. Both Terri and Steve get involved in trying to help Kelsey's parents work out their problems and try to get their daughter back. Second book in the series. Callie being the first. Continuing characters in the whole series.

    28. Another great christian romance. Terri wants nothing more than a family of her own. She is attracted to Steve = but he already has a family. Terri sets up a day care and then begins to serve as a foster mother. All ends well as Steve's kids work to make them see just how much they want and need each other.

    29. Well written and charmingI love these characters! They struggle with real problems and how to apply their faith in the real world. Although the plot wasn't entirely original, Srock worked it so well that it didn't seem redundant. I'm looking forward to reading more of the books in this series.
