Serials are not something I notice very often. Maybe I’m just not paying attention, it could be that alright. There are lots of series. Sometimes they are installments (continuations) of the same story but more often than not these days, they are connected (each story a different family member or maybe each friend in a group of friends) but stand alone stories.
Anyway, I wouldn’t normally be attracted to a story that comes in installments, I’m much too impatient for that, but this one looked different and interesting. I have to say it was worthwhile and I would definitely read the rest of the story. My only complaint is the slow movement of the story. Of course, it has to be that way for the story to last over the span of five books.

My Blue Havyn (Heart’s of Hollywood series Book 1)
When Havyn Jessup agreed to join her church’s building trip, she had no idea the man who broke her heart was coming as well. The last thing she wants is to spend time with the now internationally famous actor, Levi Carter. Even if it is in Africa, where he might, if God had any sense of justice, be eaten, one tiny bite at a time, by a pride of hungry lions. Two whole weeks. She’d never survive that long.
Levi is elated to learn that Havyn will be joining the building team. He had planned to look her up just as soon as he got home to tell her what a fool he’d been. But there is no time like the present. And what better place to ensure she would hear him than when she was strapped in at thirty thousand feet above sea level? Two short weeks. Could he convince her he was a changed man in that amount of time?
