Eliza Shaw was kind an antagonist in previous books in the series, so I was worried I wouldn't like her in this one. But I shouldn't have been concerned - I really enjoyed reading her story. Eliza's father sold her beloved home, and between coping with that, heading up a wedding competition, and dealing with normal life in Good Hope, Eliza has a lot on her plate. Her relationship with Kyle was excellent - I loved the ways the communicated with and supported each other! And I like how all of our [...]
I really enjoyed Eliza and Kyle's story. In previous Good Hope books Eliza was a character I didn't really like. She came off as brusque and judgmental, sometimes just plain mean. Meeting and getting to know Kyle brought Eliza the acceptance and love that she had previously only felt from her grandmother and brother. A softer, but still strong Eliza was such fun to meet. I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review. Can't wait for the next Good Hope book!!
I just love Cindy Kirk's writing style I so wanna move to Good Hope, or at least visit for a while. take a vacation there? It is just a happy place, gorgeous views, or at least I can see it in my mind when Cindy gives her writing skills a whirl. I love it. My favorite in the series was the one set in fall book 4 "Forever in Good Hope", 'cause you gotta say why you love a series, and for me I wanna break it up and give you a reason ere are so many reason why I love this series, but the season F [...]
Cindy Kirk has created a wonderful town and stories to fill it. This is the 5th in the Good Hope series and in my opinion, the best so far. I recommend that if you are going to read this book that you have plenty of tissues handy because I can guarantee that you will cry while reading it. This is Eliza and Kyle's story. In previous books, Eliza has come off as a mean, standoffish person but as the story unfolds readers learn what has created her hard shell and also see the softer side of her. Ky [...]
Eliza Shaw is stunned when the house she has been promised is sold from under her by her father. Kyle Kendrick, a builder, buys the house for his sister to stay while visiting Good Hope. They both decide to share the house and find out they can fulfill each other’s dreams of a life filled with love and family.Some authors are gifted. They can draw a reader into a story, whereby the reader forgets about the world around them. They become friends with the characters, and find themselves ‘livin [...]
I received a copy of this book as an ARC reader for a honest review.Wow, the story of Eliza and Kyle had me wanting to swipe the pages faster than I could. This was a great open and reveal regarding both characters. The addition of a sibling to the story to bring out Eliza to the more human side was a great addition as well. All of the other little side stories helped round the book out as it does take a village to make things tick. Books 1-4 have all been terrific but I think for me, this book [...]
After reading the brilliant previous 4 books in the series about the Bloom sisters I can honestly say I wasn’t holding out much hope for Eliza’s story as she was a character whom I disliked, she was domineering, overbearing & bossy. Yet, when I started to read her story it totally pulled me in and I got to understand why she is like she is. The love of a good man certainly helps Eliza find her happiness. I really did enjoy this story and couldn’t put it down.“I received an Advanced R [...]
"I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher and am voluntarily reviewing it."In previous Good Hope books I didn't care fire Eliza's character. But in Say I do, Eliza became more likeable and endearing. The romance between her and Kyle was pure that ROMANCE. Cindy Kirk has done it again. can't wait for the next Good Hope book.
Fantastic small town romance!! Excellent writing, intriguing characters,and a great storyline made Eliza and Kyle's story fun to read. I highly recommend this one.
Great read. Enjoyed Kyle & Eliza's story. Glad they got their HEA. Love the small town charm and the way they come together.
"Before you judge a person, walk a mile in their shoes." When I read this book this saying came to mind.I read all the books in the series and I feel you need to read the other stories to get a good understanding of Eliza.While you might think she unforgiven, cold and she thinks she is better than everybody else, you start to understand what she shows on the outside is not what she is on the inside. Finding somebody who can see past how she acts Kyle knows exactly the type of person Eliza really [...]

When her father sells the house without any notice she is devastated.Kyle is temporarily working in Good Hope and because his 12 year old sister, Lolo is coming to stay with him for a time, he wants a real home for her. Lolo was being bullied in school in Kentucky. And her best friend,who was also being bullied even attempted to take her own life. It is decided that Lolo needs a new start at least for a time. Kyle has just purch [...]
Sometimes a secondary character creates a spark in the storyline and catches the reader’s attention. The character might resonate with readers or be the one character that readers dislike with a passion. Eliza Shaw is the character many readers disliked in the Good Hope series. Her feisty, take charge attitude, community spirit, sense of style and her rivalry with Bloom sisters caught my interest—and I began to look forward to reading about her. I felt sorry for her when her “more than fri [...]
I went back to see where it was I had my first, “Waitwhat?!?” thoughts about Eliza and it was book two. And I haven’t cared for her throughout the series. She has been harsh and just not a nice person. Now we finally have her story. I wasn’t sure when we’d make it to her and it took me a while to get around to mustering the energy to read this book. However, in true Good Hope fashion, it went fairly quickly and I liked it.Kyle moves to Good Hope and buys a house from Eliza’s father t [...]
I was excited to receive an advanced copy of Say I Do In Good Hope to provide this voluntarily review. It is the fifth book in the great Good Hope series, and it is the first one that does not focus on a Bloom sister. I will admit that in the four preceding books, I did not care for the character of Eliza Shaw, the protagonist in this novel, so I was not sure I would enjoy this book as much as the others. Surprisingly the author was able to turn a very unlikable character into someone a little l [...]
Author Cindy Kirk began the Good Hope series by focusing on the Bloom sisters, four women who shared loving parents and childhood adventures but found their own paths with diverse careers as adults. Their choices took three of the sisters to other cities. Ami, the eldest, finds her passion in baking and her roots firmly planted in this small Door County town. The adventures start there, so we begin to learn about the people of Good Hope: the movers and shakers, the secrets and grudges, the close [...]
Cindy Kirk has created a town that I would love to move to. The inhabitant of Good Hope are "good" and give you "hope" that there is still good people on this earth who care for one another. This is the fifth installment of the Good Hope series. I have read each of these books and have come to love most of Good Hope's residents, except for Eliza Shaw. In the previous books, Eliza was portrayed as a cold-hearted individual; however, in Say I Do in Good Hope, you learn that Eliza Shaw acts this wa [...]
I have read the first four books in the Good Hope Series. Christmas in Good Hope, Summer in Good Hope, Be Mine in Good Hope, and Forever in Good Hope. I love the characters and town. This book details the relationship between Eliza Shaw and Kyle Kendrick. In the previous books Eliza came off as standoffish. In this book we learn a there is different side to her and find out why she is the way she is. What made her create this hard shell. Eliza's father sold her beloved home to Kyle. They agree t [...]
In this 5th book of the Good Hope series, Cindy Kirk focuses on Eliza, who was an antagonist in the previous 4 Good Hope series books. Kyle was introduced in the previous book, who we learned is Jeremy Rakes half brother, recently purchased Eliza's family home without her knowledge and the two are end up living together, with LoLo, Kyle's sister and Katherine, Eliza's aunt. In this novel, we are able to see Eliza's softer side, as she plans the Wedding event. Originally, Lindsey and Dan were to [...]
This is perhaps one of the best of Cindy Kirk's Good Hope novels as it focuses around the often misunderstood character of Eliza Shaw. I really identified with this character because I too am a guarded person and so the slow unfolding of her romance with Kyle Kendrick felt real.I love the plot -- the situation with Eliza's house getting sold behind her back by her father and her refusal to leave as the new owner, Kyle, moves in. The stubborn refusal of Eliza to leave and Kyle's willingness to le [...]
I received an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review. Once again, I am thrilled to be back in Good Hope and learning more about its residents! It was a little strange at first to get a glimpse of the world outside of the Bloom sisters, but reading about Eliza and Kyle was almost as good. At the outset of this book I found it slightly disorienting, but I don't blame the author for that one! I think I had issues getting into it because Ms. Kirk had painted such a full picture of Good [...]
I really liked the 4 previous "A Good Hope Novels" but book 5 really takes it over to the love level. I loved this book, there is no other way to describe how much I enjoyed this book. Even though I had a super busy weekend I still found the time to sit and read which is a testament to hold this book had on me. Getting behind the 'evil-cold-hearted-woman' mask of Eliza was extremely enlightening. Seeing her open up to Kyle and his sister Lolo was amazing. Add in Katherine and they made a great [...]
I picked up a Christmas in Good Hope last year looking for a light holiday read and boy did I ever fall in love with Ami Bloom. When I saw that there were more books in the Good Hope series I was so excited. At first when I realized the next book wasn't about Ami and Beck I was said, but have grown to love the whole Bloom family. Say I Do in Good Hope is not about a Bloom sister, it's about Eliza and I won't lie I was worried. She was not my favorite person in the other books, but once you reall [...]
Having read all the previous Good Hope books, Eliza was not one of my favorite characters - to say the least. And I really didn't think Cindy Kirk was going to come up with any type of story line that would change my mind. Boy she sure did prove me wrong!!!!!!!!!Eliza's dad selling her Grandmother's house right out from under her, ignoring the fact he knew it was meant to go to her, forces her to stay and live with the new owner Kyle Kendrick. This was the Perfect platform for me to really get t [...]
You know the saying "You can't judge a book by its cover". It's true in the case of Eliza Shaw. In the other Good Hope books, she's been an interfering, judgmental pain. In this story, the author delves into why Eliza is the way she is. Her father has taught her that women are inferior to men in business & she shouldn't show her emotions. Inside, Eliza has a compassionate, softer side. Kyle Kendrick has come to town to help renovate the theater. His younger sister is coming to stay with him. [...]
This is the fifth book in the Good Hope series which I have enjoyed very much. We had met Eliza Shaw in the previous books and she wasn't the most lovable of characters. The other four books were about the Bloom sisters and Eliza had her sights set on Jeremy the Mayor of Good Hope but his first love had always been Fin Bloom and in Forever in Good Hope we see that Eliza is not going to get her happy ending with Jeremy.After her father sells her beloved grandma's house from underneath her she res [...]
I received an advanced copy of this book from Book Funnel for unbiased opinion. I am always excited to read a new story from Cindy Kirk. This story is about Eliza and Kyle, both of which we met in the previous Good Hope stories. Eliza’s house is sold out from under her to Kyle by her father. Neither of them are willing to give up the house for their own reasons; they decide to keep the house together. Add in a teenager, a feisty older aunty, and a meddling town and an entertaining story ensues [...]
If you had told me that I would be looking forward to reading Eliza's story after the first or second book in the series, I would have laughed at you. A perfect example of appearances can be deceiving, as the series progressed, she became more human but the jury was still out on how relatable she would be by the time I started this book.It turns out that Eliza and I are a lot a like. As always the supporting characters are just as important to the story and I got to enjoy meeting new characters [...]
Say I Do in Good Hope (A Good Hope Novel Book 5) is the latest in Cindy Kirk's small town romance series. We have met Eliza in earlier books, and she portrayed a very solid ice queen image. This book takes us beneath the brittle shell to find a heart devoted to her hometown. Eliza has hit a personal lowe lost the man she thought she would marry to his first love, and now her father has sold her beloved home, a legacy promised to her by her grandmother. When Kyle arrives to claim the house he pur [...]
I really wasn’t prepared to be drawn into this book as I was with the others in the series because I hadn’t warmed up to Eliza the way I did with all the Bloom sisters. Boy was I wrong!! What a fabulous story. The journey Eliza took was touching and heart warming. We watched her soften throughout this story and accept love into her life in a way that was unexpected. Kyle was the perfect match for her and it was enjoyable seeing their banter grow into something you build forever on. I like se [...]
